Ghost Train to New Orleans (Shambling Guides)by Mur Lafferty
Synopses & Reviews
COULD YOU FIND A MUSEUM FOR A MONSTER?
OR A JAZZ BAR FOR A JABBERWOCK?
Zoe Norris writes travel guides for the undead. And she's good at it too — her new-found ability to talk to cities seems to help. After the success of The Sbambling Guide to New York City, Zoe and her team are sent to New Orleans to write the sequel.
Work isn't all that brings Zoe to the Big Easy. The only person who can save her boyfriend from zombism is rumored to live in the city's swamps, but Zoe's out of her element in the wilderness. With her supernatural colleagues waiting to see her fail, and rumors of a new threat hunting city talkers, can Zoe stay alive long enough to finish her next book?
"ZoÃ« Norris (introduced in The Shambling Guide to New York City) writes travel books for the coterie, America's community of supernatural entities. ZoÃ« is human, but her boss is a vampire, her bestie is a death goddess, and at least one of her coworkers wants to eat her. Dispatched with her team to create a guide book for exotic New Orleans, ZoÃ« finds betrayal, disquieting revelations, power, and danger. Team members go rogue and demon dogs stalk the streets while ZoÃ« learns more about the history of her fellow citytalkers and sleepwalks into a confrontation with one of New Orleans's deadliest figures. Lafferty's writing has an easy style that draws the reader in, and while many of the elements are familiar from other urban fantasies, she manages to shape the well-worked clay in entertaining new ways."
