River Road, the follow up to Suzanne Johnson's, Royal Street, is a steamy, fun-filled urban fantasy set in a post-Katrina New Orleans. Folks, this book has it all for mindless, laugh-out-loud, pop-culture reference fun.

DJ is a Green Warden - she has a limited amount of magic at her disposal, but as revealed in Royal Street... she is also part-elf and that's about to bite her in the butt. She has three men vying for her attention, one of whom is undead, and now she's got a new problem on her hands. That problem? Just a little one that is threatening to cause a war between preternaturals is all.

Johnson is one of my favorite urban-fantasy writers. Her style is smart and witty, her heroine isn't one of those types to sit around and wait for the strong man to come rescue her (although she does have a habit of getting really beat up when he doesn't...hmm). River Road continues in the vein of Royal Street with fun, interesting facts about NOLA and its residents. Nothing is left untouched - history, geography, myth, and legend are all woven together along with a good deal of action, mystery, and just all around fun.
