Is blood thicker than magic in La Nouvelle-Orléans?

Tormented by the fate she condemned her mother to, and by the lies she’s forced to tell to cover it up, Adele scours Storm-ravaged New Orleans for the truth about her family’s magical past. But every turn leads her back to the one person she's determined to forget: Niccolò Medici. Not even the multitude of enchanted locks on the attic door trapping Nicco within can break their connection.

Sensing Nicco calling to Adele, Isaac tries relentlessly to keep her from exploring paths too dark that would endanger them all. But a new threat is rising: the Medici’s presence has attracted something else to New Orleans…an older enemy, one that will bring Isaac’s haunted past to life, test the witches’ friendships, and jeopardize Adele and Isaac’s blossoming relationship.

In this spellbinding continuation of The Casquette Girls saga, Adele must draw on the past—from seventeenth-century Florence, a time bubbling with alchemy and fraternal betrayal—and sort history from fantasy if she is to have any chance of saving her mother, her coven, and her magic.

5 Reasons to read The Romeo Catchers

  • There is more than one point of view. We get to see into the minds of Nicco, Isaac, and Adele.
  • I know we got to peek into Adele’s ancestor in the last one, but we get to see what Niccolo was like pre-vampire.
  • We learn a little bit more about the magic these kids have.
  • New characters!!! But are they good or bad? You’ll have to read to find out.
  • Craziness. Seriously, it’s like New Orleans lost it’s mind. But…you find out why everything is happening.

I still have so many questions, and I can’t wait to see where else this story is going to go. And the title totally dragged me in because I heard about the romeo catchers when I was in New Orleans last year. It’s pretty terrifying actually, I definitely wouldn’t want to be caught by one.
