Sentinels of New Orleans, Book 6
Synopsis: The uneasy truce between the preternatural species of New Orleans has shattered, with wizards and elves, shifters and vampires—not to mention the historical undead—struggling for ultimate control of the city, including the humans who still think they’re atop the food chain.<
They aren’t, however—and the Summer Prince of Faerie wants them to know it.
Stuck in the middle? One unemployed wizard sentinel. For DJ Jaco, war makes for strange bedfellows as she finally embraces her wizard-elven heritage and strikes a deal with the devil so she and her ragtag band of allies can return to defend her hometown. After all, when the undead French pirate Jean Lafitte has been hired by the mayor as a consultant, things could go horribly wrong.
War is coming to New Orleans just in time for Mardi Gras, with the elves and wizards lined up on opposite sides, the shifters without a leader, the vampires promising loyalty to the highest bidder, and the soul of the Crescent City resting on the outcome of the civil war going on in Faerie between the rival princes of summer and winter.
Mardi Gras Day is approaching fast, the much-anticipated new Krewe of Enyo is not what it seems, and the line between friends and enemies grows thin as DJ tries to stave off open warfare between faeries on the St. Charles Avenue parade route.
Laissez les bons temps rouler…but be careful, or the good times might roll too close for comfort.
Review: Here we are with the last volume of the Sentinels of New Orleans series and while the publisher stopped the series, I was delighted that the author decided to self-publish this last novel. How to resist this conclusion? I was really curious to discover what the author was going to propose and to find once again all the characters!
DJ is in a very uncomfortable situation. It must be said that everyone wants to kill her, but she knows that she can not remain idle in the alternative world as the war looms closer and closer. But to act, she needs to return and especially not to be constantly on the alert to be shot at. So she turns to the last person who can help her, Rand. Trying to combine politics and conspiracy, our heroine will do everything to save her city!
I really enjoyed this novel again. It was a great conclusion for the series, although I am still curious to discover the next novellas that the author will present us because there are always a few things to see. I loved seeing the evolution of the characters of Rene and Rand. It was interesting to see how the elf was trying to be there even though it’s a somewhat abstract concept for him to help Drusilla. And how to resist the little Corgi he offers her? Impossible !
All of our heroes are back on the scene and it was a real pleasure to watch this final match! I’m sure fans will be happy too!
