River Road is a worthy successor to Royal Street, one of my favourite novels of 2012. Things are starting to get back on track three years after Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans but the effects of it are still being felt. Lots of supes are taking advantage of the barriers between Beyond and here being wiped out and a territory dispute has broken out between two rival mer-people tribes. Each claims the other is poisoning the local water and if DJ can’t figure out what is actually causing the problem, humans and supes are likely to die.
The axman cometh and DJ is determined the hunt him down. This creepy killer may have been dead for the better part of a century but with the help of a necromancer, he is happily biding his time chopping up the good citizens of New Orleans while he narrows in on DJ. If DJ had been at the top of her game, I have no doubt she could have handled him with aplomb but her problems are multiplying exponentially and she is stretched to her absolute limits.
