Teaser Tuesday: Royal Street by Suzanne Johnson


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


I recently went digging in my TBR mountain for something "urban fantasy." I pulled out Royal Street by Suzanne Johnson because a) it was near the top, and b) because I heard so many good things about it. Basically is the the story of a junior wizard in New Orleans who gets stuck dealing with more than just physical devastation when Hurricane Katrina hits and supernatural monsters are released.


Teaser (from page 1):
I wasn't sure what unnerved me more--the fact that the historical undead had discovered modern prophylactics, or that Lafitte felt the need to practice safe sex.
Three paragraphs in and I was already hooked.

  5. I don't know why she'd consider someone caring about safe sex to be unnerving... :)
