There is just one new series starting up this week, and it is from author Kristen Painter. House of the Rising Sun is the first book of the Crescent City series, a spin-off of her House of Comarre series.
Augustine lives the perfect life in the Haven city of New Orleans. He rarely works a real job, spends most of his nights with a different human woman, and resides in a spectacular Garden District mansion paid for by retired movie star Olivia Goodwin, who has come to think of him as an adopted son, providing him room and board and whatever else he needs.
But when Augustine returns home to find Olivia’s been attacked by vampires, he knows his idyllic life has comes to an end. It’s time for revenge—and to take up the mantle of the city’s Guardian.
I actually have been eyeing the House of Comarre books for a while, but never got there yet. What was everyone’s take on it? Any fans?
