    "Another great book in a fantastic series!"

    The suspense and story telling in Bayou Moon makes it my favourite book of the Edge series, all of which are fantastic! Good narration!

    "Compelling"

    This book has some unusual twists and an interesting storyline. The female lead well written and the book is very engaging. I can not wait to start the next one!

    "Great narration, but boring!"
    Would you try another book from Ilona Andrews and/or Renée Raudman?

    I especially liked the narration, but I am finding Andrews books a little on the slow side.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ilona Andrews? Why or why not?

    I would try one more, but not in this series. I didn't even finish this one and that is saying a lot for me.


    What does Renée Raudman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her accents are great. She really gives every character a distinct voice and her men sound convincing.

    "More exciting than The Edge!"

    I loved the first book in this series, The Edge. This one is very similar in the whole begrudging love plot, but the villains are more interesting and the action is a bit more exciting. I really enjoyed it, even if it was a little bit predictable. The narration could've been better.

    "Not my favorite but still good"

    This was alright but it's probably my least favorite of all the Andrews books I've read. I'd still rate it three and a half or four. I think it went on longer than it needed to. I like Sereise and William and I'd love to have more interaction between them and Deckland and Rose in the next book.

    The narrator is the same throughout all these books and does a very nice job.

    "Sooo Good"

    I was happy to see that William is in this one. I did sympathize with him in the first book and its satisfying to see him find romance. His emotional torment and struggles to overcome his abusive childhood are covered here without making him seem pathetic but strong and worthy of happiness and love.

    Cerise is a true heroine and perfect for William as they battle truly monstrous enemies. Some are really creepy.

    Renee Raudman was easy to listen to with the only drawback for me was the voice of Spider. Hearing her interpretation made me think of a fairy tale witch or a very old woman instead of a powerful, evil man. Other than that its a great listen.

    "Emotion, Adventure, and Facile Characterization"

    Bayou Moon continues the partnership of Ilona Andrews and Renee Raudman in showing how the right narrator improves the story. The book is great on its own -- strong leads and secondary characters, action, and intelligent world-building - but Ms. Raudman brings out the subtle humor that is hard to hear when "listening" to the voices as you read.

    "A disappointment"

    Maybe it was the reader, or maybe it was the writing -- or maybe it was both. Regardless of the culprit, I found this book wanting in comparison to the first Edge book and the Kate Daniels series. The Edge as described in the first book felt really real to me. It all seemed to fit together. In this book, I had difficulty picturing the world of the Mire, or believing in it. The accents the reader used didn't work for me. And the writing... the way it kept switching back and forth between different peoples' perspectives within a single scene was just poor writing form.

    Also, what is with Ilona and her characters adopting children or raising their siblings? Kate, Rose, Cerise, and William have all followed this pattern in one way or another. Also, orphans. There seem to be a lot of orphans popping up in her books. I don't mind this part of the stories, but it is starting to feel a little formulaic.

    I like Jack Reacher style characters regardless of setting. Put them in outer space, in modern America, in a military setting, on an alien planet... no worries. Book has non moralistic vigilante-justice? Sign me up! (oh, I read urban fantasy, soft and hard sci-fi, trashy vampire and zombie novels too)

    Story
    "Unrelated story set in same world as book 1"

    Firstly... I didn't realize this book, while book 2 in the series, has nothing to do with book one. It is set in the same world, and there are a couple references to the characters in book one, but the story follows a new couple, who have a new set of concerns and problems. There is no Rose or Declan here.

    Otherwise, it is pretty much the same quality storyline, plot and pacing. I'm not sure the romance is quite as good and the sex scene (only one) is not as graphic as in the first book. There are some interesting characters here though, and the world is more fully explained - mostly the Edge and the Weird, not much time is spent in the Broken.

    I think the "bad guys" are a bit too extreme though, and almost feel cartoonish. I don't mind fantasy components, but would prefer it remain mature and not devolve into the "monster under the bed" type horror. Overall, however, I liked it, and ended up buying the next book in the series as soon as I finished this one.

    The narration is the same as book one. She is fine, but not the best reader I've heard. There is minimal swearing, and nothing very graphic. I did buy the next book from Audible, but there is no cliff hanger, so you don't have to.

    "Even better than the first book"

    I really like the narrator, she is the perfect voice/voices. This book is full of action, really full of action. I guess that I am a prude, but I do get sick of the F word in all of her books. The variety in this series is interesting, I am anxious to start the next book.
