French pirate Jean Lafitte is tall, cobalt-eyed, broad-shouldered, and immortal. What's not to love? But New Orleans' most esteemed member of the historical undead is headed for trouble. He's determined to reclaim Le Diligent, his gold-laden schooner lost at sea in 1814 and recently found at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico near Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana. The U.S. Coast Guard and the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Office might beg to differ. New Orleans wizard sentinel DJ Jaco and her merman friend Rene Delachaise can either lock up their friend Lafitte or join him on a road trip to Cajun country in order to save him from himself. Terrebonne Parish-not to mention its jail-might never be the same after the events of the all-new novella Pirateship Down, presented here along with a collection of urban fantasy stories and essays. Wizards and Cajun merfolk, sexy shapeshifters and undead French pirates. Welcome to the world of the Sentinels of New Orleans in this collection, along with a little Louisiana lagniappe. "A fantastic combination of the best things to find in an urban fantasy. The characters are quirky with lots of clever humor."-RT Book Reviews, on Pirate's Alley, Sentinels of New Orleans Book 4.
