(Night Huntress novella #0.5)
In New Orleans, a pair of undead serial killers is about to turn Mardi Gras into a horror show - unless the immortal hitman Bones can hunt them down first. From Jeaniene Frost comes a thrilling novella featuring characters from her New York Times bestselling Night Huntress series. Originally appeared in the anthology Unbound.
When unsuspecting Eric picks up a gorgeous woman while on a Haunted Bus Tour, the only thought on his mind was he was going to get laid. It never occurred to him that what she said about 'eating him' meant that she was actually and literally going to eat him. She was a murderous ghoul and supposed to be dead. Her name was Delphine Lalaurie.
Reckoning takes place before Ohio, before Cat, when Bones was in New Orleans. Bones was hired by Jelani, to get rid of the "dead murderous duo" Louis and Delphine LaLaurie who were terrorizing the city. It was Jelani who only wanted revenge for having been turned into a ghoul by them when he was their slave over a century ago..
...except Jelani was not supposed to be doing shit without the Voo-Doo Queen of New Orleans Marie Laveau knowing. She would have to kill them both.
I especially like when Bones gets banned from New Orleans. There was also another odd character who I can't remember the spelling of. He made Bones' Hunt all the more perilous. lol
