Following On the Edge, Bayou Moon surpassed all of my expectations for the second book in this Urban Fantasy series. I absolutely love Ilona Andrews and while their Kate Daniels series remains my favorite, this Edge series is nothing short of fantastic.
While each book in this four-book series are standalones, in a sense, there is an overreaching plot threaded throughout and connected in all the books via the amazing spectrum of characters. Bayou Moon is a book full of action, colorful characters, chaos, heartbreak, and hope. William and Cerise are two people thrust together by circumstance, forced to fight a villain capable of horrendous violence and hate. Both William and Cerise have their own causes to fight for and I found myself desperately rooting for them, not only as a couple but as individuals, too. Both are searching for their own kind of safety and peace.
Simply put, I loved this book. I got hardcore Kate Daniels vibes from this one, even more so than the first in this series. There were also some pretty shocking moments, this Edge world is brutal!
EDIT: Months and months later, and many rereads later, I have concluded that Bayou Moon is my favorite Ilona Andrews book. While Kate Daniels remains my favorite series, this book is perfect in every way to me, even its few flaws add to a phenomenal reading experience. Truly amazing.
