Cristina and Clement Trudeau have conjured the impossible: justice. 

They took back their family’s stolen throne to lead New Orleans’ magical community into the brighter future they all deserve. 

But when Cris and Clem restored their family power, Valentina Savant lost everything. Her beloved grandparents are gone and her sovereignty has been revoked―she will never be Queen. Unless, of course, someone dethrones the Trudeaus again. And lucky for her, she’s not the only one trying to take them down.

Cris and Clem have enemies coming at them from all directions: Hateful anti-magic protesters sabotage their reign at every turn. A ruthless detective with a personal vendetta against magical crime is hot on their tail just as Cris has discovered her thirst for revenge. And a brutal god, hunting from the shadows, is summoned by the very power Clem needs to protect the boy he loves.

Cris’s hunger for vengeance and Clem’s desire for love could prove to be their family’s downfall, all while new murders, shocking disappearances, and impossible alliances are changing the game forever. 

Welcome back to New Orleans, where gods walk among us and justice isn’t served, it’s taken.

What I liked:
There is a fine line between justice and vengeance, as the characters in Blood Justice, Terry J. Benton-Walker's sequel to Blood Debts, find out. They are combined with the desire to create and maintain a tenacious hold on family and legacy. The book alternates points of view between Clement, Cristina, and Valentina, who suffer the loss of family, loyalty, and, at some points, their own identities.
Final verdict:
The way that Benton-Walker creates layer upon layer of characterization and motivation, all set against the backdrop of New Orleans, is breathtaking and moving. I truly am blown away by the twists and turns that I am undercover in each novel from this series.
