Thanks to yours truly, Jean now had a Green Congress wizard in his entourage, one who could do elven magic.

Except the wizard wasn't enlisting.
This week I am reading Belle Chasse by Suzanne Johnson. I received a finished copy for review from the publisher. I love this urban fantasy series and wish more people would talk about it. Here is the description from Amazon:
Suzanne Johnson's "strong and intriguing" (Publishers Weekly) urban fantasy series continues with Belle Chasse. The Sentinels of New Orleans series has earned starred reviews from Library Journal ("a resourceful heroine who relies on her magical ingenuity") and PW ("vivid...a lively tale jam-packed with action, magic, and intriguing plot twists").

With the wizard-elven treaty on the verge of collapse, the preternatural world stands on the brink of war. Unless former wizard sentinel DJ Jaco manages to keep the elven leader, Quince Randolph, focused on peace and not personal matters.

With no one on the throne, Faerie is in chaos, with rival princes battling for power. The still-undead pirate, Jean Lafitte, is building his own army of misfits, and DJ―stripped of her job and hiding in the Beyond to avoid the death sentence handed down by the wizard Council of Elders―can’t get anywhere near her beloved New Orleans or her significant something-or-other, Alex.

It's time to choose sides. Friends will become enemies, enemies will become allies, and not everyone will survive. DJ and her friends will learn a hard lesson: sometimes, even the ultimate sacrifice isn’t enough.

  4. I read some urban fantasy a few years ago for an "eclectic reading challenge." It is not my favorite genre, but it can be very tempting.

    Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “INHERITING EDITH”

  9. I read the first 3 in the series Sentinels of New Orleans, which is saying a lot about the quality of the writing because I almost never read UF anymore. I got hooked on the first one, read two and three almost back to back but missed out on #4, and now this seems to be #5. You're right-- more folks should mention it because it's a very decent UF series in a fun setting.
