Publisher's Summary

The latest Mystic Bayou novel from Audie Award-nominated author Molly Harper will have you swooning with passion and wailing with laughter!

Cordelia Canton is on a top-secret assignment: travel to Mystic Bayou and use her powers as a touch-know psychic to learn more about the mysterious artifact that’s been pulled from the rift site. She’s partnered with Brendan O’Connor, a rare male banshee whose tall, dark, and broody good looks are a major distraction. Before long, it becomes clear that the artifact they’re studying is sentient - and brimming with supernatural power. Can they harness its magic in time to stop the secret forces conspiring to steal it?

Can't help it, I just love this series

This series is fun and satisfying and filled with heart warming moments where truly weird people/werekin are family and kind to each other, whether they are birth family or the even better, chosen family. the narration is delightful, there are dragons, all kinds of bizarre were-shifters; there's very strange and wonderous types of magical gifts - it's just light and fun. I'm 72 years old, I've read all kinds of sci-fi/fantasy, and I like authors who can instill hope, humor and human kindness into their books, and even better, good humored sass and a touch of snark. If you need something less light-hearted, but still written with a bit of tongue in cheek, but more plotting, more interstellar, than I strongly urge you to give Bujold's Vorkosigan series a try -- stunning, and a good 13 books long, none with cliffhangers, and each a stand-alone. But, if you're looking for easy, breezy and pleasantly weird, this series is great.

Mystic Bayou Magic

I had never heard of Molly Harper and Shifter stories were definitely not my type of genre, Until...I got my email from Audible “Editors Picks””Always Be My Banshee” was one of the picks. I was looking for something fresh to keep me sane during Quarantine. I read the description of the series and started in order - fortunately they were In Audible Escape. All Mystic Bayou books were fantastic. The author has a great imagination, throws in humor , romance, mystery and a dash of quirky town supernaturals and voilà happy ears .
The narrators are amazing (my first time listening to them) new favorites. I would give this series all the stars but the rating system allows only 5.
You will not be disappointed with this series at all. One of the great things is you don’t have to read them in order or all of them as they are stand alone novels in themselves.
Thank you Holly Harper for helping me through this difficult time .

Harper continues to wow

Molly Harper does it again. I don’t know how, but she has me laughing out loud while walking the dog with every single books she writes. Humor in books is hard! Harper does it with natural ease and perfect timing. The worlds she builds are filled with so much more than romantic love promised by the romance premise. She builds communities full of characters that you want to invite over for a barbecue and hope will lick your forehead so you can be adopted too. I wish I could hang out in mystic bayou with the team.

Also, Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis knock it out of the park with their performances.

I devoured this audio

This time we have two newcomers arriving in Mystic Bayou and both are unusual. Brendan O’Connor, is a rare male banshee and Cordelia Canton is a touch-psychic. They’ve been brought here by the league to decipher the object found near the rift that is changing the paranormal landscape.

I enjoyed both Brendan and Cordelia, from their interaction with the town to the way they were together. We get a romance that took a little while to develop as Cordelia has issues with her gift and I rooted for them.

A lot happens with regard to the league and the rift. So much so that I worry this may be the last. However, a quick search assures me two more audiobooks are in the works..and I am delighted!

Humor, pie and danger await you in this installment. The league arrives and things get pretty tense, but Harper pulled me in and I devoured this in almost a single sitting.

Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis narrated as the chapters alternated between Cordelia and Brendan. I enjoy getting both of their perspectives. The narrates nail the humor and snark and have become the voices for this series.

I love Mystic Bayou!

And I feel the need to be licked by Zed, whom I love. You will understand when you read this. All the favored characters together again in a fabulous Molly Harper story. As per usual Amanda Ronconi and Jonathan Davis did a tremendous job.

Love this series!!

I have listened to everyone as soon as they have come out. They make you laugh out loud. And are the perfect length for me while I work and keep me from getting bored too. I became invested in Mystic Bayou and all of its residents, new and old. Just need to find out how Jillian has the baby. Hint, hint Molly. Thanks again for a great story.

Make narrator can’t decide if he’s Irish

It’s seriously annoying. He flips back and forth. Why does the Irish guy think with an American accent... kinda? And kinda sometimes not.

Not as good as the last ones.

This book was not as good as the first three books in the series. The love story wasn’t that interesting to me. I’m glad we found out more about Mystic Bayou and the rift. Let’s circle back to Jillian and Bael’s story please. 🙏🏾

Mystic Bayou will never be the same

REVIEW PROVIDED BY: Kelly
NUMBER OF HEARTS: 5
Another excellent installment in the Mystic Bayou series! I just love Molly Harper’s writing. She always has some way of turning anything into snark and sass. I really enjoyed Cordelia and Brenden’s story. These two were a riot of fun. With the whole one can see the past and one can see the end issue thrown in.

Amanda Ronconi & Jonathan Davis do an amazing job yet again in bringing the characters of Mystic Bayou to life. While I normally don’t like two narrators I have grown to love this story being told by the two of them.

I can’t wait to see what happens next in this series! Because the Goatman is out of the stall.

Great book

I loved this one. Cordelia and Brandon are a great addition to the other characters in the series. I loved how the book had funny moments intwined within the angst and intimate parts of the book. Another great narration by Amanda and Jonathan

Brilliant!!!!

I loved this book! I just adored Cordelia & Brendan! I have to say I actually like the rift entity now that we know more about her. It feels like one arc has finished but another is potentially starting. I hope there is more to come in the series!!

not as good as the others

the romance and backstory for the male interest were a little lacklustre in this one. the resolution to everyone's problems was a little too simple. good performances by the narrators, but I found the differences between the accents given to the same characters by the narrators off-putting. I was also confused by the difference in accents given to characters who grew up in the same town.

Love this series!

As expected Always be my Banshee delivered plenty of laugh out loud moments. The interaction between the main characters of Mystic Bayou is always hilarious and lovely (especially Zed). The performances by the Narrators are amazing. Loved it!
