Ally Shieldsabout this book: I have always loved books and movies about New Orleans, but I recently had a chance to spend time there and just knew I need to make it the setting for my next novel. However, it didn't fit into the current Guardian Witch urban fantasy series I was writing, so I invented new characters and a new world to interact with the New Orleans' history and culture. Cross Keys was the result.
Book summary: Kameo Ryndel is an Elite elf from the aristocracy of Elvenrude, the alternate world the elves built for themselves when they left earth through a magic portal. Flaunting social convention, Kam trained as a King's Guard but her homeland has very little crime. She's bored, and her boyfriend, and her family are pressuring her to marry. She convinces the King to transfer her through the portal to New Orleans, where she works as a retriever of lost/stolen artifacts.
Then the trouble begins. An elf who is prohibited from portal travel arrives in New Orleans. While attempting to capture and return him, she runs into conflict with Seth, the very attractive member of a rival elven family, a group of human thugs with guns, the CIA, and smugglers. Setting the differences aside, Seth and Kam discover a conspiracy that threatens both worlds. There's enough chaos to be sure she won't be bored for a long time...if anyone survives.
