    A Magical Read

    This is one of the best books I’ve ever read. It’s got everything I could want in a novel – characters I love, the struggle between light and dark, themes of integration and discrimination, a great love story with almost-insurmountable obstacles, a ghost, and Greek mythology (which I never thought I’d like, but I love in this!), all set against the magical backdrop of New Orleans. Each chapter begins with either a quote or a stanza from a poem, which sets the stage perfectly. In the audiobook, this is backed by haunting music that reflects the tone of the story. Rocker romances are my guilty pleasure, but this book is really a paranormal story. The country/rock star aspect is secondary and a fairly minor detail to get Billy to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. I discovered Michelle Mankin’s Raging Tempest series a few months ago and fell in love with it. I didn’t think she could top it. But this, this is genius. This is the first book in a series, not a serial. No cliffhanger here. The couple gets their HEA, or at least an HFN, but there is an overreaching story arc, the struggle to integrate dark and light, that will be continued. The battle may be won, but the war is not over. Some people may need a trigger warning for one scene. It’s actually glossed over and not graphic at all but gets mentioned again later in the book, again without too many details. There is graphic violence in the first part. If you’re squeamish or easily grossed out, you might want to skim it or skip ahead, but the story is definitely worth reading.
