“This detailed and descriptive sequel is every bit as engrossing as the first, with deftly drawn character arcs and a captivating setting.” —School Library Journal
“In this sequel to The Casquette Girls (2013), teen witches Adele and Isaac grow closer while fresh evil descends upon flood-ravaged New Orleans. The author continues to woo culture and history mavens, adding vivid New Orleans color (the funeral procession) and plenty of post-hurricane detail (such as Isaac’s grim recovery work, so similar to that carried out after Katrina). Warm, carefully drawn characters are the story's main attraction. A meticulous blend of witchery, New Orleans lore, and teen angst.” —Kirkus Reviews
“Fans will be floored by The Romeo Catchers, the much-anticipated follow up to The Casquette Girls. An intense dreamscape of a read full of magic, menace, and mystery.” —Tonya Hurley, New York Times bestselling author of the ghostgirl series and the Blessed trilogy
“Adele’s supernatural roller-coaster ride continues at breakneck speed, with shocking revelations along the bloodstained way. Rich descriptions of post-storm New Orleans as well as a variety of vivid secondary characters create a lush background, allowing this extraordinary story to thrive. Readers will be enchanted and horrified in turn as Arden plunges them into a sudden, unpredictable cliffhanger that will leave them as stunned as her characters.” —RT Book Reviews
