Giveaway: Royal Street by Suzanne Johnson


I have an exciting treat for you today: a giveaway of ROYAL STREET by Suzanne Johnson, thanks to the lovely folks at Tor Books!

ROYAL STREET is the first book in a new urban fantasy series set in post-Katrina New Orleans. It’s a wonderful debut, filled with great characters and a meaty story. It hit shelves on Tuesday and I’d encourage you all to run out and get your hands on a copy of your own as soon as possible!

Here’s the scoop on ROYAL STREET:

Suzanne Johnson Royal StreetAs 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 book looks great. I haven’t read an urban fantasy book in awhile, so maybe this will get me into the genre again. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I have never read a book that focuses on New Orleans during Katrina. I’ve definitely read books that feature post-Katrina NO, and books written before the disaster, but I’ve never read fiction about Katrina … I am really interested in this book!!
