    1. When I realized Tor had accepted my request for Elysian Fields, I feared I was hallucinating Sentinels of New Orleans is a series that grabbed me since the beginning, and I have to thank Forbidden Planet in London for it You can guess I was than happy to be granted a copy The book is strongly linked with the previous one and you ll probably need to get the first two in series if you want to enjoy it fully, to understand the reasons behind some of the characters choices or behaviour.The plot sta [...]


    2. In this book, DJ Jaco, the young magic sentinel of New Orleans, faces the most harrowing challenges An undead serial killer is on the loose in her city, and he seems to be targeting her And then there are troubles with the elves Aren t there always troubles with the elves They re sly and treacherous, they don t approve of her, and they show their disdain in the most graphic ways Plus she might be turning into a raving shapeshifter the next full moon, if the killer doesn t get to her first The pa [...]


    3. This was my first introduction to DJ Jaco and I discovered a few wonderful things First, Elysian Fields absolutely did stand on its own Although I did go back and purchase the first two books in this series it was only because I wanted I was able to follow the story and there was no catch up to understand what has happened in a previous book in this seris Second, DJ Jaco could give Sookie Stackhouse or Anita Blake a run for her money, less the man harem, though there is a few awesome alpha cont [...]


    4. These books get better and better DJ finally figures out who she s interested and it s reciprocated sometimes She finds semi allies and narrowly escapes a huge change in her life I loved the ending.


    5. Originally reviewed on Romancing the Dark Side Loved every page Elysian Fields solidified my love for Suzanne Johnson s writing The geeky, blonde wizard and her entourage are back for thrills and adventure in this third installment of the Sentinels of New Orleans series DJ is just starting to pick of the pieces of hurricane Katrina, losing her family and her near death experience with the mer folk of New Orleans when a new threat enters her life A resurrected serial killer known as the Axeman o [...]


    6. Elysian Fields is another sure fire hit in Suzanne Johnson s Sentinels of New Orleans supernatural urban fantasy series Like the Patricia Briggs Mercy Thompson series and Jim Butcher s Dresden Files series, Johnson builds on what we have learned about DJ, her half elven green witch with untold magical potential by having her face off against different supernatural bad guys in each novel Comparisons to early Mercy Thompson or Dresden File books are very apt Filled with werewolves, vampires and th [...]


    7. If you enjoy highly original, entertaining paranormal urban fantasies with a vast array of quirky characters and light romance, this series is an hangover inducing must read The scariest sound in New Orleans French Quarter is silence.ELYSIAN FIELDS by Suzanne Johnson is an action packed, fast paced, addictive page turner It s the third book in Suzanne s Sentinels of New Orleans series I confess to not reading this series in order as ELYSIAN FIELDS served as my introduction to Suzanne Johnson s w [...]


    8. I loved returning to NOLA in the well written 3rd installment of the Sentinels of New Orleans series by Suzanne Johnson.Johnson takes DJ and the gang through the streets of NOLA trying to solve the case of the serial killer, the Axeman At first it looks like a copy cat serial killer since the real Axeman has been dead since the early 1900s But if the undead pirate, Jean Lafitte can cross over from the Beyond into NOLA why can t the Axeman So far in the series we ve seen wizards, undead pirates, [...]


    9. I really love this series, DJ is growing and changing and finding out new things about herself The action is crazy and non stop, pretes are showing up, politics are pushing things around and Jean Lafitte is still awesome If you like urban fantasy with a little bit of romance, not a lot, and New Orleans, you really need to pick these up You never know who to trust or what the true agenda is and it is a heck of a lot of fun.


    10. Thoroughly enjoyable World building continues to be interesting Characters are still relatable We learn about elves Enjoy getting to know about New Orleans post Katrina The love triangle square is not doing much for me but is typical of the genre I look forward to books by this author.For a really good review check out review showReview curtesy of netgalley and publisher in exchange for honest review.


    11. 3.5 stars Mostly b c this book had absolutely nothing to do with Elysian Fields Nada.


    12. 8 out of 10 4 stars Really good.I especially love the concept of the historical undead And how great it must be to be able to summon Louis Armstrong D



    13. Genre Urban Fantasy Rating 3 3.5 My Thoughts Elysian Fields is the third novel in the Sentinels of New Orleans series by Suzanne Johnson As a series recap, Drusilla DJ as she prefers to be called Jaco is the Wizard Sentinel for the Greater New Orleans area and is responsible for investigating and keeping track of preternaturals in her area and stepping when needed along with her partner Alex Warin Shape shifter and cousin Jack Warin Loup Garou werewolf.Her party of friends includes the Undead li [...]


    14. DJ finds herself up against her most challenging enemy yet when an axe murderer starts claiming victims all over New Orleans This isn t just any old murderer though, it s one of the historical undead and he s back to carry on the killing spree he started nearly 100 years ago As if that wasn t bad enough it looks like DJ is his next target Can she figure out who is behind his sudden reappearance and why they have sent him after her She doesn t just have a killer to catch though, she also has the [...]


    15. Actual rating 4.5 starsElysian Fields was exactly what I expected it to be and I knew I would get entertaining characters, interesting world building and an action packed dilemma that would keep DJ and Alex constantly on the go I was definitely not disappointed by any of those elements in this story And to top it off, I got an amazingly creepy, horror type case that DJ was completely wrapped up in The Axeman was a totally awesome bad guy and I loved every creepy minute of him The mystery surrou [...]


    16. Our favorite New Orleans characters are back in Book 3 ELYSIAN FIELDS I am always amazed at the world building that goes into these books There has been something in each installment that has made me put the book down and Google away trying to find out information In ELYSIAN FIELDS that ended up being Six Flags New Orleans Once Suzanne started describing it in the book I had to learn and she was totally spot on with descriptions I thoroughly enjoy how she brings the area into her books of cour [...]


    17. First of all, I just have to say that I m pretty sure my brain is completely fried As in all caps No holds barred Fried This week has been TOUGH I read book 2 the last time it was on tour Man What a fun, fun book I was swept away from the start.So when I say that I had absolutely no issue following this book, I want you to understand that I say this knowing I had oh, maybe half a brain cell left to comprehend this book LOL I love how Ms Johnson is capable of writing in such a way that she sweeps [...]


    18. I received a review copy of this book from Suzanne Johnson via Netgalley in return for an honest review This was my first time reading a book by this author, and it was Amazing This was the third book in this series and I felt as if i hadn t missed a thing by not reading the first two books I love when an author can take you from one book to the next seamlessly Terrific plot and well developed characters, a must read in my opinion I also loved the author s take on New Orleans, very descriptive a [...]


    19. Pretty good Not sure I like the elves in this particular universe Still a little tired of how handsome some of these guys are Love Jean LaFitte, though He s awesome Glad we got to see some of her merman friends too Those guys are great A little sad for DJ and all that she went through, and I m not even sure what was gained here Here s hoping the next story is a little cohesive.


    20. There was a lot going on in this one I think maybe the love square or maybe now it s a love pentagon finally got to me I m not usually a fan of love triangles, and the amount of potential suitors in this one really exhausts me I don t think this book was less in terms of quality as compared to the first two If you liked the first two books, then you ll like this one I m just not sure I ll continue with this series if the focus continues to be on D.J s many suitors.


    21. I enjoyed it DJ, a wizard, has elven blood and can do elven magic The elves aren t happy Adrian,as usual,is annoying and betrays DJ Rand turns out to be an elf and DJ bonds with him to save herself Good read

    23. Third in the Sentinels of New Orleans urban fantasy series revolving around DJ Jaco, an overworked Sentinel wizard.I did receive this story ARC from the publisher.My TakeJohnson has some interesting twists on the loup garou, the dead, and magic in general, and she takes it and runs in this opening It s an easy enough, basic opening serial killer back from the dead with the good guys trying to figure it out Without telling at least one of the party the background truth She incorporates worries ab [...]


    24. As soon as I started to read this book, and got a few pages in, I immediately regretted the decision to request this book and ya knowad it WHY I hear you cry Because as I got a few pages in, I immediately loved the characters and the world, I didn t want to leave it, and I clocked the agonizingly long wait, nearly a year, until the next book in the series In case you haven t worked it out yet, I haven t read the first two books, and I chose to request this one solely on the strength of the intri [...]


    25. I looked forward to the release of this third volume as it s a series I really love In fact, Suzanne Johnson has many original ideas in her novels and I was waiting to have again our undead characters as well as our exciting heroes has a lot of works these days, and she needs to deal with all the troubles occuring A serial killer is in loose in the city led by a necromancer and it is up to our heroine to stop him But how will she be able to kill someone immortal Especially before he kills her Bu [...]


    26. Originally posted at smexybooks 2013 08 review Favorite Quote I would have done as much for anyone It just happened to be you Elysian Fields picks up a few weeks after the events in River Road Drusilla Jaco DJ , is still recovering from the wounds she received battling an insane nymph When she is called to the scene of a brutal murder, she discovers that a serial killer, known as the Axeman who terrorized New Orleans back in the early 1900 s, has come back from the dead to reign hell on the mort [...]


    27. This book was brilliant I loved the mix of paranormal and investigative work on the hunt for a serial killer from the beyond.Unlike the time span in the first two books The third book just carries on from the second, we re talking days or weeks at most in between the story lines In this novel, DJ and Alex are on the hunt for the Axeman The Axeman was a serial killer in the 19th century in New Orleans, who was never caught Now, someone is bringing him back from the beyond and he s carrying on his [...]


    28. Johnson strikes a good balance with the Historical Dead, she uses famous people that make sense for New Orleans, and in moderation Some authors that have an excuse to use cool historical figures throw in so many that it becomes silly, it stretches my ability to suspend my disbelief way too far But by sticking to a couple of key figures like Jean Lafitte and Louis Armstrong she makes it work Plus if I was writing a book historical figures, Pops would definitely be in it But Ella would be showing [...]
