Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor did a fantastic job of weaving in just enough flashes back to the prequel that even "new to the series" readers will not be lost or confused. Weis and Astor sucked up the charm, architecture and mystic of New Orleans on the pages. I felt like I was walking down Bourbon Street.
And dare I say I actually liked Magnus Blackwell this time around. I still don't trust him 100% so we shall see if a leopard can change his spots.
My favorite character was Lexy Arden, the MC. She really put Magnus in his place and that was a long time coming. Her character was strong and resilient. Who knew what she hiding under her bouncy ponytail! I can't wait to see what else NOLA has in store for her.
I gave Damned 5 Stars. It's a haunting, thrilling tale from Maine to Louisiana. Alexandrea Weis and Lucas Astor make a fantastic writing duo. I look forward to reading more from them in the future.
