Customer Reviews

The story is fast , action packed with great fights and great dialogues between the characters .
Katrien Van Lerberghe
Even though Bayou Moon is technically the second book in The Edge series (On the Edge being book one), it practically reads like a stand-alone.
Mrs. Baumann
I just really like Ilona Andrews and will be waiting for more Edge stories and more Kate Daniels.

~* 4.5 Stars *~
William Wolf is a changling. Feared and hated by humans of the Weird - and sometimes killed at birth - his kind is cursed as demons and known for having a nearly unquenchable thirst for violence. He's not and will never be 'normal.' He was raised at Hawk's Academy, a cold place that trained him to be a killer for his country, then spit him out into the military. Until a court marshal and a death sentence took everything he knew away from him. Now, almost two years after helping his old friend/rival Declan defeat the evil Casshorn in On the Edge (The Edge, Book 1), he's living life as a solitary wolf, with a small home in the Edge and a construction job in the Broken. Until Mirror agents come knocking and offer him a job and a chance for revenge on his greatest enemy, a Louisianan Hand agent named Spider.

Cerise Mar is Mire born and bred, and with a large family to take care of and little money to be had, she's learned to scrape and scrounge out a life in the swamp of the Edge. With little legacy beyond an 80 year old family feud and magic of the old ways, she's thrust into assuming the responsibility of leading her entire family when her parents go missing and the Sheeriles, the rival Mire family the Mars are feuding with, take over a house on Mar land. Soon Cerise realizes there is a traitor in her midst, and the Sheeriles have crawled into bed with the magically twisted Hand and instead of facing a family feud, she and her family are staring at genocide the likes of which can hardly be conceived. And she's the one who will have to lead her family to it.

Bayou Moon is the second book in The Edge series. We met William, the wolf shapeshifter, in book one. He is living as a recluse in the Edge--the border area between the Weird (magic) and the Broken (not magic) worlds. High ranking members of the Mirror (secret service) show up at his door to tell him his nemisis the Spider is back. The Spider is a murderer runs a group known as the Hand--magic altered, very creepy and tough bad guys. William goes undercover into the Mire, swamp land in the Edge, to track him down and discover an elusive journal that Spider is hunting.

The Mar family is a land rich, cash poor family living in the Mire. They've had a long running feud with the Sheeriles, a rival clan. When Cherise Mar's parents go missing, she is shocked to discover that the powerful Hand helped the Sheerilies with the disappearance. What does the Hand want with her parents? The Sheerilies are trying to take some of the Mar's land. Cherise must find a way to take back their land and save her parents. While on a mission to the Broken to track down some key legal papers, she meets William. At first they do not trust each other, but over time they learn that the Hand is an enemy of both. They agree to work together in the fight against the Hand.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this book--it is definitely better than the first book. It has a highly imaginative, fast paced, suspenseful storyline. Highly entertaining mix of action, suspense, mystery, humor and romance. The original world building was very well done.

I loved the main characters and found many of the supporting cast interesting. Cherise was a strong lead female who runs her clan in her parent's absense. I loved her kick a$$ sword abilities--some great fight scenes.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
There seem to be two camps in the urban fantasy market. The first are books which focus on blending the mundane with the sublime, using the juxtaposition of what we know as "our world" with invented elements of magic/fairies/vampires/what-have-you to tell stories about inner conflict, exploration, and identity. The second camp is something I like to call Badass Chicks Fight Evil With Hot Guys, Or Evil That IS A Hot Guy.

Not that there isn't (significant) overlap between the two, especially in the current market. But you can tell, when you read a book, which aesthetic it aligns with in its heart of hearts. "On the Edge" was in the first camp. "Bayou Moon" is squarely in the second.

A lot of "Bayou Moon" reads like someone sat down with "On the Edge" and sketched out a rough outline of what made that book so enjoyable. Independent heroine? Check. Focus on family dynamics? Check. Clash of cultures in the romance? Check check. Add a Wild-West-ish atmosphere to the setting of treacherous landscape, we're ready for takeoff.

And if what gets you going is a romp where two heterosexual lovers pair up against the odds, with downtime to simmer and smirk at each other, "Bayou Moon" is just the ticket. Watch out for some elements of darkness -- necromancy, murder, and hints of cannibalism -- but this is Ilona Andrews. If you've read the Kate Daniels books, you know Andrews doesn't stint on gore.

But for the rest of us, "Bayou Moon" is just going through the motions. I kept comparing it to "On the Edge" in my head, and it kept falling far short of that standard. Some of you may protest that's unfair, as it's a different book, but since there are so many parallels to the story structure (see above) I'm not sure how I could have avoided it.

More About the Author

New York Times Bestselling author Ilona Andrews is the pseudonym for a husband-and-wife writing team. Ilona is a native-born Russian and Gordon is a former communications sergeant in the U.S. Army. Contrary to popular belief, Gordon was never an intelligence officer with a license to kill, and Ilona was never the mysterious Russian spy who seduced him. They met in college, in English Composition 101, where Ilona got a better grade. (Gordon is still sore about that.)

Gordon and Ilona currently reside in Portland with their two children, three dogs and a cat. They have co-authored two series, the bestselling urban fantasy of Kate Daniels and romantic urban fantasy of The Edge.
