“Rarely has an urban fantasy so moved and entertained me on the very same page! Royal Street offers an insider's view of post-Katrina New Orleans, in all its heartache—and all its heart. A witty, resilient heroine and an irresistible cast make this a sure hit with fans of Charlaine Harris and Jim Butcher.”
—Jeri Smith-Ready, award-winning author of the SHADE and WVMP RADIO series
SUZANNE JOHNSON is a magazine editor and feature writer with more than fifty national writing and editing awards. A longtime New Orleans resident, she helped rebuild for two years after Hurricane Katrina. Royal Street was her first novel and is the first book in an urban fantasy series about the Sentinels of New Orleans, wizards who guard the storied city against preternatural dangers. As Susannah Sandlin, Suzanne is also the author of The Penton Vampire Legacy, a series of popular paranormal romances.
This is very well written, it's definitely an easy read, as it's fast paced and action packed.
I thought the world building was fantastic, as well as the New Orleans setting during and after Hurricane Katrina.
This leads to some interesting scenes, but at times made DJ feel like too much of a victim to me.
I really enjoyed this book. As a newer resident of New Orleans, I was captivated by Suzanne Johnson's description of the city before, during and after Hurricane Katrina. Read morePublished 8 days ago by Bambi_Unbridled
