Every vampire has heard rumor of the mythical place where their kind can daywalk. But what no vampire knows is that this City of Eternal Night actually exists.
And its name is New Orleans.
For centuries, the fae have protected the city from vampire infestation. But when the bloodsuckers return, the fragile peace in New Orleans begins to crumble.
Carefree playboy Augustine, and Harlow, a woman searching for answers about her absent father, are dragged into the war. The fate of the city rests on them --- and their fae blood that can no longer be denied.
Book one in the brand new, action-packed urban fantasy Crescent City series, from award winning, House of Comarre author Kristen Painter!
Too-perfect playboy fae Augustine, from Painter's House of Comarr series, is horrified when his mother figure, movie star Olivia Goodwin, is murdered by vampires in 2068 New Orleans. In a future too much like our present televisions are now holovisions and cell phones are "Life Management Devices" New Orleans is a bustling Haven city for the morally questionable witches and the righteous fae. Augustine becomes New Orleans's guardian, tasked with ridding the city of its uninvited vampire guests and eager to use his position to avenge Olivia. Further complicating matters is the appearance of Harlow, Goodwin's estranged daughter and Augustine's love interest, and later Harlow's dangerous father, whom Goodwin kept secret. This page-turner features characters with interesting, innovative powers solving a complex conspiracy, and is a promising beginning to what looks to be an easily digestible series.

Vampires and Fae
Years ago I read this book before I knew anything about posting ireviews. Now that I’ve listened to the audiobook, I’m writing the review for both. This is one of my favorite books. Well, Kristen is one of my favorite authors. Harlow is in trouble and needs her mom’s help. She would also like to know the identity of her father. This is what keeps her away from her mother Olivia. Harlow can read things when she touches them. She wears gloves all the time. Her mom Olivia is a very famous movie star from the past. When vampires murder her, Harlow’s priorities change. Now she is on the hunt for the killer. There’s so much I want to say but I don’t want to ruin any of it.
The narrator is so amazing that words just can’t describe. He hits all the different accents of New Orleans. Can’t wait to hear him again.
