Description

Renaissance Raines has found her place among the psychopomps-the guides who lead the souls of the recently departed through the Seven Gates of the Underworld-and done her best to avoid the notice of gods and mortals alike. But when a young boy named Ramses St. Cyr manages to escape his foretold death, Renai finds herself at the center of a deity-thick plot unfolding in New Orleans. Someone helped Ramses slip free of his destined end -- someone willing to risk everything to steal a little slice of power for themselves. Is it one of the storm gods that's descended on the city? The death god who's locked the Gates of the Underworld? Or the manipulative sorcerer who also cheated Death? When she finds the schemer, there's gonna be all kinds of hell to pay, because there are scarier things than death in the Crescent City. Renaissance Raines is one of them.

Professional reviews

"Korey Jackson narrates a fantastical musing on life and death, steeped in the mythos of New Orleans. Renaissance Raines is a psychopomp, a guide who leads the newly dead through the Seven Gates of the Underworld. Jackson's portrayal of Renai is a believable characterization of a (dead) 20-something who is confused, frustrated, and disheartened with her afterlife. It is his portrayal of Renai's mentor, Salvatore, however, that is of note: Sal can take the form of either a dog or a raven, and Jackson subtly modifies his characterization to differentiate between the two. There are many gods and supernatural beings among the secondary characters, and Jackson depicts them all as slightly tarnished, which is fitting, given the numerous cons they are all seemingly trying to perpetrate.
