Just the sort of thing I love to read late into the night: a supernatural thriller that keeps you turning the pages.
Set against the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, this is the story of how the walls that protect the Now from the Beyond have crumbled in the storm and the undead are coming into the city.
Drusilla Jaco has the job of protecting the city as co-sentinal so it is a good job she is a wizard. Unfortunately, she doesn't get on with the partner who has been send by the Elders to help her, Alix, but he does have a fit cousin...
A great teenagers' novel, just enough spice and violence without overstepping the mark. Some great set pieces like the ceremony with Baron Samedi in the Beyond. All the little magic touches set the atmosphere well and this would make a great TV movie.
As it is, it makes a great novel. The sequel "River Road" is also now available.
