Royal Street (Sentinels of New Orleans, #1) by Suzanne Johnson is a loving homage to the spirit of New Orleans. Set during and in the immediate aftermath of Katrina, Ms. Johnson introduces her readers to the dark side of the French Quarter--to the wizards and shapeshifters, the historical undead, and other preternatural creatures from Beyond. Drusilla "DJ" Jaco is the junior wizard sentinel assigned to the New Orleans area. When Katrina hits and her mentor goes missing, DJ has to step up to the job. Luckily, the wizard ruling council, the Elders, sends her help in the form of sexy FBI shape-shifter Alex Warin. From Jean Lafitte to Louis Armstrong, the city and the characters of New Orleans come to life--literally, and it's up to DJ to prevent the equivelent of Wizard World War 3.

The book started a bit slow but I read through that bit and then the pace picked up. This was a fun read and I look forward to the next installmments in this series.
