10 reasons to read Royal Street

Royal Street by Suzanne Johnson (Tor, 4/10/12)
1. Gripping imagery of New Orleans post-Katrina told by someone who lived through it. (Okay, she took some creative license with the preternatural beasties.)

2. Creepy dancing-skeleton voodoo gods, buzzards, and more black mambas
than you can shake a rattler at.

3. It's proof undead pirates in generally unmanly bloomers
can be sexy. Dead sexy.

4. Dancing voodoo queens. 

5. You can pretend my badass fictional boyfriend (Alex) is
yours for about 300 pages.

6. A grab-bag full of potions. 

7. More Lord of the Rings references than Tolkien himself ever made.

8. The number of sexy men is very nearly proportionate to the number of times
D.J. gets herself in deep voodoo.

9. You can beat people with an elven staff, if you can't aim it. 

10. Wizard trumps hurricane every time

Visit Suzanne Johnson at her website to learn more about the Sentinels of New Orleans series. The first book, Royal Street, hits shelves on April 10! And if you're in the crescent city, be sure to come to the launch party at Garden District Books.
