This is a debut novel.
As the Junior Wizard sentinel for
, Drusilla Jaco's job was more potion mixing and pixie retrieval than anything. Her boss and mentor, Gerald St. Simon, was the one responsible for protecting the city from the preternatural beyond.
Then Katrina hammered
levees, releasing a lot more than flood waters. The undead and restless are on the loose along with serial killers. What is worse, Gerald St. Simon has gone missing and the wizard elders have assigned a grenade-toting enforcer as D.J.'s partner. Oh yes, the undead pirate, Jean Lafitte wants her to walk his plank.

, it is also a debut novel of enchanting characters including the city itself. Gotta sit down however long it takes and enjoy it. It is worth it. ~~ Pam Allan
