Description

Cerise Mar and her unruly clan are cash poor but land rich, claiming a large swathe of the Mire, the Edge swamplands between the state of Louisiana and the Weird. When her parents vanish, her clan's long-time rivals are suspects number one.

But all is not as it seems. Two nations of the Weird are waging a cold war fought by feint and espionage, and their conflict is about to spill over into the Edge - and Cerise's life. William, a changeling soldier who left behind the politics of the Weird, has been forced back into service to track down a rival nation's spymaster.

When William's and Cerise's missions lead them to cross paths, sparks fly - but they'll have to work together if they want to succeed…and survive.

Another epic listen by this fantastic duo (trio?)!

This book picks-up right where ON THE EDGE left off, except this time the focus shifts to William who just so happens to be a wolf changeling—my favourite kind! We also get to meet Cerise Mar, a heroine who’s on the same level as Kate Daniels from Ilona Andrews’ other series, and I immediately adored her. I enjoyed this installment slightly more than the first, and I think that’s because I was a little more familiar with THE EDGE universe this time around. I didn’t have to pay as much attention to the world-building, although the Mire is an extremely weird place with its own set of magical rules, so there were still tons of new tidbits to take in. BAYOU MOON is another unmissable listen by this fabulous writer / narrator duo!

I’ve loved pretty much every protagonist that Andrews has thrown my way, and Cerise was no different. She’s even more backwoods than Rose from book 1 which was great because I really enjoyed that aspect of the first installment. Mar lives in an enchanted swamp where cats are green, fish have legs, and mud burns; after growing up in that kind of environment you can’t help but be a little off. I liked how badass Cerise is! There’s this one scene where she and William are in a bit of a pickle, and she’s like don’t interfere, I’ll take all of these baddies on myself, and does. Mar is as far from damsel in distress as you can get, and makes the sexy changeling work for it. A LOT.

The Mire is an awesomely bizarre place, and I thoroughly enjoyed discovering all of its quirks. It was doubly entertaining navigating this odd swamp through William’s eyes because he’s constantly baffled by the absurdity of it all which leads to countless comical WTF moments. There’s this little side thread about an eel that pops up throughout the story that’s laugh-out-loud hilarious. I seriously loved it! The weirdness of the locale also comes through nicely in the main plot with the feuding families, Spider and his minions, and the magic behind Cerise’s uncle’s infamous “box”. Rose, Declen, and the kids make cameo appearances in this novel, and there are several references to them throughout this tale which I appreciated, because I wasn’t quite ready to say good-bye to these amazing characters after only one installment.

I can always count on Renée Raudman to deliver a top notch audiobook with her superb narration skills, and knack for upping the ante on an already action packed tale. Originally, I used to think of her as “Kate Daniels”, but after listening to her for this series as well, for me she’s now become synonymous with Ilona Andrews’ writing. Her transitions between POVs and chapters are smooth, and she always seems to perfectly capture the emotions of any given scene. Raudman is definitely one of my auto-buy narrators.

BAYOU MOON is another epic listen by this fantastic duo (trio?), and I can’t wait to start FATE’S EDGE!

You go Girl!

Listened for Fun (Audible)
Overall Rating: 4.50
Story Rating: 4.50
Character Rating: 4.50

Audio Rating: 4.50 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: Bayou Moon was great! I knew William's story would be kick ass but really it was Cerise is the one who shined.

Story Thoughts: Love stories that give me a Hatfield and McCoys feel and this one nailed it! I have had this book since 2013 and was so glad to finally get to it. I am loving this series and there isn't much that I can say about that hasn't been said before. I will say that the thing I love most about it is the action. There is lots of it and it is kick ass!

Character Thoughts: I love William. Ok I loved him in the first book too but loved him even more here. What I loved most was that Cerise made him shine, her family made him crazy, and his predicament made him think fast on his feet. I did love Cerise too and her kooky family. She actually stole the show as far as I am concerned. She was smart, ballsy, and a wonderful leader. I am thrilled to the 2 rascals get their own books! I think those will be interesting.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Renée Raudman / Length: 15 hrs and 32 mins


Again Renee did an excellent jobs. This are not short listens though so be in it for the long haul. They are worth every minute but at 15 hours it is a commitment!

Final Thoughts: Bring on Book 3!

Best Ilona Andrews Heroin, yet

I really loved the struggle and love story in this book. What's great about it, is there is a lot of adventure/action, a progressive maze of a story, with the right sprinkling of love. I think it's the best of the series.

It wasn't only action packed, it had a ton of mystery and intrigue. The wolf portion of the saga is so great, you see it in all three books. This one doesn't let you down, it gets you more interested in the stories.

The narrator was great and really got male and female voices down. It was such a great book, I thought the story could have gone on longer!

I LOVE William!!!!

Ok, listen up people. I was very eager to write this review. This book is awesome. There is enough action, adventure, and romance for everyone!

I want to point out that in book 1 William's character seemed stalkerish, weird, creepy, desperate and whiny. He kind of sounded like a real wimp. Well let me tell you...William is none of those things. William is awesome! Manly, strong, tough, sensitive, humorous and lets not forget handsome! I enjoyed this book even more than book 1, because while I loved Declan I just think William is more realistic and did I say awesome? LOL. I loved the connection with Sirese (spelling?) and with her whole family. I tell you I got nervous everytime there was a new fight, just hoping none of my favorite characters got hurt. I am going to go ahead and admit I got teary eyed a time or two.

This book definitely kept my attention and I was actually sad it ended. The good thing is that every book in the series is connected so you kind of get to glimpse the characters from another's point of view.

The narration, characters, and story are great. You cannot and will not go wrong purchasing this book whether it is on sale or full price! You definitely should have this in your collection!

William Gets The Gal He Deserves!

First off, I loved William's character in the first book of the series, On the Edge, and as much as I enjoyed that book - in fact I think it was a phenom listen - I was rooting more for William than Declan to be the romantic lead. Cherise is definitely a better match for him than Rose, the heroine from On the Edge.

My main reason for rating this one lower than I rated On the Edge is the introduction of a spy thriller theme. It just didn't suit my tastes as well as the first novel's more "Questing Hero" theme. Also, William didn't have as much opportunity to break out the uber bad ass blasé that got me rooting for him in the first novel, though he did have ample opportunity to do bad things to very bad people.

Very much worth the listen!

never enough - too long to wait for another!

Ilona Andrews books are my favorites now - just terrific, Good story, witty, steamy and funny. I can't wait for more of these and the "Magic Bites" series. Such cool and wonderful ideas of futuristic dystopias... I am always entertained.

Love the series, not this book

I absolutely love the writing duo Ilona Andrews. this the book though was very confusing to keep up with. I found myself drifting off all this evening to it. I think it was hard to keep my attention. I'm going to stay with the series though in hopes book 3 is better. I absolutely loved book 1. I am attached to William and Cerise. I just jad to give an honest review, this book just didn't do it for me. I still recommend reading it though. Even though it's not one of their best, it's still a good book and worth reading.

Meh

This one wasn't as good as the first. I didn't connect with the characters and the story wasn't as developed.

Wonderful Story

I really enjoyed hearing more about William, whom we met in On the Edge. It was an entertaining story and wonderful narration by Renee Raudman.
