Overview

"Royal Street" by Suzanne Johnson is the fun, fast-paced first book in the Sentinels of New Orleans, a series of urban fantasy novels filled with wizards, mermen, and pirates. These novels are perfect for readers of paranormal fiction and "fans of Charlaine Harris and Cat Adams" ("Booklist) "and "RT Bookreviews" agrees that "for readers missing Sookie Stackhouse, this series may be right up your alley."
As the junior wizard sentinel for New Orleans, Drusilla Jaco's job involves a lot more potion-mixing and pixie-retrieval than sniffing out supernatural bad guys like rogue vampires and lethal were-creatures. DJ's boss and mentor, Gerald St. Simon, is the wizard tasked with protecting the city from anyone or anything that might slip over from the preternatural beyond.
Then Hurricane Katrina hammers New Orleans' fragile levees, unleashing more than just dangerous flood waters.
While winds howled and Lake Pontchartrain surged, the borders between the modern city and the Otherworld crumbled. Now, the undead and the restless are roaming the Big Easy, and a serial killer with ties to voodoo is murdering the soldiers sent to help the city recover.
To make it worse, Gerry has gone missing, the wizards' Elders have assigned a grenade-toting assassin as DJ's new partner, and undead pirate Jean Lafitte wants to make her walk his plank. The search for Gerry and for the serial killer turns personal when DJ learns the hard way that loyalty requires sacrifice, allies come from the unlikeliest places, and duty mixed with love creates one bitter gumbo.

The first Sentinels of New Orleans fantasy is a vivid debut that’s far more than the sum of its parts. Empathetic wizard and deputy sentinel Drusilla “DJ” Jaco faces several challenges in the summer and fall of 2005: Hurricane Katrina breaches the levees as well as crucial magical barriers, and her mentor, Gerry, disappears. DJ is put in charge of protecting New Orleans by the Congress of Elders, who send heavily armed Enforcer Alexander Warin to assist during her probationary period. As DJ and Alex search for Gerry, they also must help the NOPD investigate a series of murders with ritual overtones and defend DJ against the attentions of infamous and deceased pirate Jean Lafitte. Sympathetic, entertaining DJ is the perfect narrator for a lively tale jam-packed with action, magic, and intriguing plot twists. Agent: Marlene Stringer, the Stringer Literary Agency. (Apr.)
