Review: Elysian Fields by Suzanne Johnson


untitled (27)Elysian Fields by Suzanne Johnson

“New Orleans is under attack from a copycat who is mimicking the crimes of a serial killer who terrorized the streets almost a century earlier.

Drusilla Jaco could happily live without the advances of the 200-year-old undead pirate Jean Lafitte, but through him DJ learns the terrible truth: this is no copycat – someone has resurrected the original Axeman of New Orleans. And to make matters worse, the attacks aren’t random at all. He’s after her.

So there’s an undead serial killer on her back. A loup-garou who’s going loco. The Elders are insisting on magic lessons from the world’s most annoying wizard. And former partner – and sometime Neanderthal – Alex Warin has just turned up on DJ’s to-do list.

DJ is about to discover that life in Louisiana has more twists and turns than the mighty Mississippi. ”


“Elysian Fields” is the third book in the Sentinels of New Orleans series. The book is linked to other is the series, so reading from book one is essential.

The Sentinels of New Orleans is a wonderful urban fantasy series set in the post Katrina “New” New Orleans.

This fast paced novel finally solves the mystery of the axeman and wraps up the trilogy brilliantly.

“Elysian Fields” has mer-men, necromancers, sex undead pirates and a few elfs thrown in. It ticks every box for a block buster urban fantasy series.

This series is perfect for Laurell K. Hamilton’s Anita Blake and Patricia Briggs fans.
