River Road Book Cover
Title: River Road
Series: Sentinels of New Orleans
Author: Suzanne Johnson
Goodreads Summary: (actually taken from author's website for this one)
Folks in New Orleans say Hurricane Katrina changed everything. They don't know half of it. Wizard Sentinel Drusilla "DJ" Jaco can tell them all about it -- she had a ringside seat when fluctuating barometric pressures from the hurricane breached the barriers between the human world and the preternatural world Beyond. Now, treaties between the wizard gatekeepers and all the preternatural critters are complete, and DJ and partner Alexander Warin find themselves drowning in water creatures as a feud develops between rival merpeople clans. People are getting sick -- or dead--all over town, and DJ has to figure out where it's the nutty nix, the monosyllabic merman or the naughty nymph who's behind it--or some critter altogether different. After all, DJ's undead suitor, the pirate Jean Lafitte, knows his way around a body or two. Coming November 2012 from Tor Books.
