As the wizard sentinel for New Orleans, Drusilla “DJ” Jaco protects the city from anyone or anything that might slip into our world from the preternatural Beyond…a job made more difficult ever since Hurricane Katrina ripped open the magical border. Now she faces ghosts, merfolk, shape shifters, elves, and undead pirates all jockeying for power in New and Old Orleans.
Beginning with Royal Street, which earned a starred review from Publishers Weekly, Suzanne Johnson’s Sentinels of New Orleans is an action-filled urban fantasy series perfect for readers of paranormal fiction and “fans of Charlaine Harris and Cat Adams” (Booklist). RT Book Reviews agrees that “for readers missing Sookie Stackhouse, this series may be right up your alley.”
The Sentinels of New Orleans Series: Royal Street
Sentinels of New Orleans (Volume 1)
Royal Street kicks off The Sentinels of New Orleans, an urban fantasy series set in New Orleans, written by a native of Louisiana. While the novel deals respectfully with the disaster of Katrina, the book offsets the serisouness of the setting with a heroine with a sense of humor, a good pace, and a cast of intriguing supernatural characters.
Suzanne Johnson lives in Auburn, Alabama, and works as associate editor of Auburn Magazine. She is a veteran journalist with more than fifty national awards for writing and editing nonfiction. She is the author of the urban fantasy novels Royal Street and River Road.
