Also around the blogosphere today, I’m wearing my Susannah hat over at Curling Up with a Good Book, talking about Storm Force and which scene in the book I’m most proud of.
FINALLY, the first early review of Elysian Fields is in, from RT Book Reviews, which gave it four stars (out of 4.5):
Mermen, pirates and wizards, oh my! For readers missing Sookie Stackhouse, this series may be right up your alley. The third in Johnson’s series brings more adventure and romance set in the resilient, and beautiful, recovering city of New Orleans. This is a book with a creative plot, a likable heroine and dastardly quirky characters bound to make for an enjoyable weekend of reading.
SUMMARY: The mer feud is settled, but that doesn’t mean New Orleans is safe. Now they are under attack from a copy-cat killer from 1918 known as the Axeman of New Orleans. Undead pirate Jean Lafitte knows that the attacks are anything but random, and a mysterious necromancer, using the resurrected Axeman, is targeting our favorite blonde wizard, DJ. Adding to the chaos, her partner, Jake Warin, is more and more troubled and her neighbor, Quince, is acting stranger than usual. DJ is beginning to think making a move to the Beyond as Jean Lafitte’s pirate wench might be just the ticket.
