Johnson returns to New Orleans (or rather, the underworld known as Old Orleans) in this third installment of her Sentinels of New Orleans series (after Royal Street and River Road, both 2012). Many of the same pirates, elves, wizards, and mermen appear, this time stalked by an undead serial killer known as Axeman. DJ, a Sentinel wizard charged with keeping the two worlds separate, finds herself Axeman’s main target. She already has enough to deal with—she’s terribly worried about her friend Jake, who can’t control his werewolf tendencies; undead pirate Jean Lafitte is still trying to seduce her; and her shape-shifter partner, Alex, is as gruff as ever. Johnson has a real flair for world building and keeps the plot in this adventure/romance/fantasy humming along smoothly. Readers will want to start at the beginning of the series to get the full story. --Rebecca Vnuk
Solid plotting and a well-described, consistent setting make this a strong and intriguing addition to the genre. (Publishers Weekly on River Road)
[Johnson] does a brilliant job of bringing her fantasy version of New Orleans to life. An enchanting examination of magic and the people who wield it, River Road is a book to be savored. This second novel in the Sentinels of New Orleans series is a page-turner all by itself, but don't cheat yourself by missing out on Royal Street, its predecessor. (RT Book Reviews, on River Road)
A vivid debut. . . . Sympathetic, entertaining DJ is the perfect narrator. (Publishers Weekly, starred review, on River Road)
A resourceful heroine who relies on her magical ingenuity. . . . The author captures Katrina's devastation and the long recovery of a city's resilient people. (Library Journal, starred review on Royal Street)
Suggest this fast, fun, and engaging fantasy-thriller to fans of Charlaine Harris and Cat Adams. (Booklist on Royal Street)
Deft humor, creative plot twists, sure-footed use of language and quirky characters. . . . Likely to remind readers of Charlaine Harris's fun True Blood. (New Orleans Times-Picayune on Royal Street)
Unplug the phone. Turn off the TV. You won't want to be interrupted. I read it in one sitting. A thoroughly enjoyable world and a likeable heroine make for a fun read. (Cat Adams, author of Siren Song, on Royal Street)
