Royal Street is the beginning to a new paranormal series that shouldn’t be missed. It’s not heavy on the romance, which is just the way I like it. It has tension and just enough of it, but steers away from the urban fantasies that are saturated with it. Some may feel that New Orleans is the usual location for stories such as this, but it just makes sense, and it’s my hometown, so when it is done right I will never turn my nose up at it. And Royal Street did New Orleans justice. The fact that it takes place before, during, and after Katrina and uses the event as the reason for everything that’s going down is pure genius on Johnson’s part.

I’m not sure who my favorite character is, because there are a lot of great choices. DJ is the strong female lead that you shouldn’t screw with, but you might not realize that from looking at her. She isn’t the typical lead with supernatural strength, her strength is all in her intentions. Once she has her mind set on something, she takes care of it. Her new partner and his cousin are both swoon worthy and each have their moments that had me rooting for either one of them to steal DJ’s heart. The most interesting character is definitely the pirate, Jean Lafitte, he’s undead, bad, and good(ish), all at the same time, and he is always entertaining. I can’t wait to see what happens next in the series!
