Product Description

Product Description

In The Broken, people shop at Walmart, and magic only lives in fairy tales; in The Weird, aristocrats still rule and the strength of your magic controls your fate; and The Edge is the borderland where anything can happen...

William Wolf will never be normal; he is a loner, a changeling, hated by the people of the Weird, yet rigorously trained and coldly used for the very qualities they fear. Now exiled, he's recruited again by those he's happily abandoned – who offer him a chance for revenge against his greatest enemy...Spider, a murderous agent of the Hand.

Cerise Mar's noble legacy is an 80-year-old family feud, an impressive holding of swampland, a gift for the 'old magic', a large contentious family – and no money. When her parents go missing and conflict with the rival Sheerile clan hits a new high, Cerise must lead the entire Mar family against them. And then things get complicated: it seems there's a traitor in her own clan, and the Sheeriles have a dangerously powerful ally...named Spider.

William and Cerise are possibly the two unlikeliest allies in the annals of the Edge; but though they have different missions, they share the same goal and, together they're unbeatable – if they can keep from killing each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put the book down!! 5 Oct 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm not one for writing reviews really...I feel other people always say what I want to (and use longer words). I have just finished Bayou Moon and felt compelled to tell others how great it is, from the first page to the last. I loved the characters of William and Cerise. In fact I prefered William's 'hero' by far to Declan's ( sorry Declan). He was flawed, vulnerable and full of self doubt, I could really sympathise with him. I liked most of the characters in the book. They weren't there just to fill in space and move the story a long...they were interesting in their own right. I would love to know what happened to Uncle Hugh!!! I read the first book in the Edge series and it just didn't hold a candle to the Kate Daniels series but the Edge is definitely growing on all I need do is wait another year for the next book!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 5 Oct 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having read "On the Edge" and "Bayou Moon" in less than a week i can happily say that Ilona Andrews is now my favourite writter. I'm a massive Kate Daniels fan so thought i would have a dip into the Edge and i loved it! Just wish there was more for me to read now.
Cerise is an Edger, living in the swamp area of "The Edge", the place between two worlds, the Broken where there is no magic, and the Weird where magic is in abundance. William is a Changeling, originaly a soldier from the weird, he escaped from their bizzare laws and fled to the broken but now has to come to the Edge to settle an old score and needs Cerise's help to do it.
Great story, loads of action, just enough romance to make me smile and a good dollop of Ilona's sense of humor. Read it NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely loved this book. 30 Sep 2010
By chloe
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have read ilona andrews kate daniels series and the previous edge book and this is just as amazing as all of those
You can probably read this without having read on the edge though I seriously recommend reading on the edge anyway as it would be a shame not to read such a great book and it would definitely help you understand more about the characters.
I would love to read more books set in this world and I loved that the alphas from short stories posted on ilona andrews blog were briefly mentioned

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Edge" is just getting better and better! 27 Nov 2010
By Kyrie
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The world of The Edge is an interesting one. Modern-day life is juxtaposed with an almost wild-west setting and also with a more traditional fantasy setting. The Broken is mundane earth - technology rules and there is no magic. Then there is The Weird - full of magic and shape shifters and mystical creatures. Sandwiched between is a sort of buffer zone - The Edge. People who live in The Edge have some magic, but not enough to keep them from entering The Broken. They forge a life for themselves much as did our pioneer ancestors.

The setting of Bayou Moon intrigued me from the beginning. Being a Louisiana girl, I appreciated the swamp setting and I knew exactly what she meant when she said it had an almost primeval beauty. Something I've liked about both Edge books is the almost "old world" setting - if you back-stab an Edger or renege on a deal they aren't likely to call the law, but might shoot you, instead. It just seems like a simpler world, in some ways - even though a more dangerous one.

The hero of Bayou Moon is William Wolf. William is a changeling - a lot of his thought processes aren't like a "typical" man's. Well, maybe they are... he does tend to be pretty straight-forward. Regarding his feelings toward Cerise, the heroine, he's just adorable. Cerise, on the other hand, is tough, a great fighter, and every bit a match for William though she does need to work on trust issues.

The over-arching story is one of betrayal and revenge. Another Mire family, the Sheeriles, has sold out Cerise's parents to agents of The Hand from Louisiana (a territory in the Weird, not the state) and is planning on annihilating her family.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! Better than book #1 14 Oct 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bayou Moon is the second book in The Edge series by husband and wife writing team, Ilona and Andrew Gordon under the pseudonym Ilona Andrews. Ilona and Gordon's Kate Daniels series is one of my favourite series full stop, so of course when they started The Edge series, it was a must read for me. The first book, On The Edge, was very good and I loved it, but it is very different to the Kate series. While reading On The Edge I had a feeling, much as I liked it, that (rather like the Kate series actually) that I'd enjoy book 2 even more. I wasn't wrong, I adored this one!!

Bayou Moon follows William, the wolf changeling from On The Edge, in his continued hunt for his old enemy Spider. He was quite possibly my favourite character from OTE, despite not being the main role or the hero of the story. He's so deeply damaged, no family, a trained killer, someone who wants nothing more than a family of his own. There is something heartbreaking about reading the first chapter of this book, seeing him playing with the action figures he's bought himself to try and have some of the childhood he was denied.

William is hunting Spider in the Edge when his path crosses that of Cerise Mar. The Mar's are land rich but cash poor and her parents, head of the family, have just disappeared. It's thought that their long term rivals are responsible, but she soon learns that Spider has a hand in it as well. Cerise has to lead her family against their rivals knowing not everyone will survive. She realises William will be a valuable asset going up against Spider, but with sparks flying between them and secrets that could ruing everything, nothing is simple.

I didn't have any problems getting in to this book, I was hooked from the start.
