The Edge lies between worlds, on the border between the Broken, where people shop at Walmart and magic is a fairytale–and the Weird, where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny…
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 suspect 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.
Great book. The world building is flawless.
Love this serious and can't wait for the next!!
A great, breezy read
I am a huge fan of Andrews' Kate Daniels series, so I read On the Edge and Bayou Moon both to support them and because I think they write very well. I enjoyed On the Edge, but didn't gobble it up the way I do the Kate Daniels series. With Bayou Moon I was a bit wary and waited until the day after it came out to read it.
I loved it! William and Cerise are wonderful characters, both as a couple and as individuals. The supporting cast were intriguing and fun. I liked that the villain, Spider, is not a quintessentially evil villain, but one who has many layers (of course Andrews' specialty is amazing characters so I wasn't surprised).
All in all, I had a great time reading Bayou Moon. I spent the afternoon of my day off on my couch with it in my lap and was sad when I finished it, wanting more. You don't have to read On the Edge first, though I would recommend it as the hero is introduced in that book and the main characters come back in this one. Just pick it up and you'll be enthralled.
