Format: Paperback
Book three in the Sentinels of New Orleans series is by far the most blood-soaked story thus far, so naturally it would be my favourite, right? Featuring an axe-wielding serial killer, no less. One whose crimes are getting disconcertingly closer to DJ's neck of the woods. Coincidence? Yeah, she wishes. And so once again our favourite female wizard is in the centre of a shitstorm of epic proportions, and if only that were the worst of her problems!

Oh, I loved this one. Here is a book that's not only a satisfying read in its own right, but also plants seed after seed of future intrigue as Johnson introduces her Long Game. And I have to say, judging by this book, I simply cannot wait to see where she's planning to take us next!

As well as dealing with the Axeman of New Orleans in his undead but frighteningly corporeal form, DJ has some very interesting personal issues to address in Elysian Fields. Some good, some not so good, and some that she's just been plain avoiding for far too long. There was also a lot more emphasis made here on the elves this time around. They've been somewhat in the background up until now, wanting little to do with the rest of supernatural kind, but when they step out of the shadows they sure do it in style! And with some humongous repercussions for DJ, I might add. Not happy with her bond with Charlie, the elven staff, they make their feelings known in true elven tradition: trickery, sneak tactics, and mind games.

Dealing with the elves proves a challenge for DJ. I've mentioned before that she's quite forthright - no wallflower is our Dru - but this poses a problem among the elves who, as a race with a very healthy superiority complex, see her as little more than a mongrel mutt.

By Liz Wilkins TOP 500 REVIEWER on 14 Aug. 2014
Format: Paperback
The first thing to say is that when I requested this book I did not realise that it was part of an ongoing series (pay attention Liz!) but I decided to dive in anyway and it did not really matter at all although there are quite strong links to the previous two so I would recommend reading those first (Royal Street followed by River Road) – I am, for sure, going to purchase and read those as soon as possible.

Highly entertaining this one – definitely some of the best Urban Fantasy I’ve read for a while, a heck of a reading pace with some wonderfully eclectic characters and a strong intelligent storyline that hooked me in immediately. Also the second novel I’ve read lately that involves the mythology of The Axeman of New Orleans, in this case done in a very different way but just as compelling and I have to say that kind of made the book for me and gave me an anchor.

The world building is fantastic, even taking into consideration that I”ve obviously missed some important aspects, I loved the mix of magic and twisty turny plotline which gave the whole thing a definite edge over some of the other series out there. Ms Johnson’s writing is sublimely addictive, I rattled through the whole thing in one reading session and enjoyed every last moment. I am extremely fond of Drusilla Jaco, did not take her long to make it onto my favourite character list. VERY much looking forward to taking a journey back in time and then, hopefully, forward. More please.

Happy Reading Folks!

As soon as I started to read this book, and got a few pages in, I immediately regretted the decision to request this book and ya know...read it. "WHY!?" I hear you cry? Because as I got a few pages in, I immediately loved the characters and the world, I didn't want to leave it, and I clocked the agonizingly long wait, nearly a year, until the next book in the series.

In case you haven't worked it out yet, I haven't read the first two books, and I chose to request this one solely on the strength of the intriguing synopsis, I mean c'mon guys, undead pirate? You may not know this, but I can quote Pirates of the Caribbean to an irritating level, so if it's got pirates....I'm in. The whole "undead" pirate was an intriguing bonus, not to mention the magic, implied romance and general crazy murderer running about. I guessed I'd be in for a fun few hours and I really wasn't wrong. To be honest, not having read the first two books wasn't a problem for me, sure I wasn't too sure on some previous relations with some characters, but DJ does a great job refreshing everyone's memories concisely, letting me know what I need to know from the other books, and I would imagine reminding readers of the first two books without wittering on for pages with stuff you already know.

We join DJ at a crime scene, eerily similar to those of the 1918 serial killer, simply known as The Axeman, except it has to be a copycat...right? Wrong. This has got Historical Undead all over it. DJ sets out to apprehend him, but when Jean Lafitte shows up, in a horse and carriage no less, he has an interesting and mildly terrifying piece of information. The Axeman is after her. More specifically, as DJ works out, a necromancer controlling him, is after her.

"Great.
