The rules are very simple: spotlight a book written by an author whose first or last name begins with the featured letter. Include the book cover, title and author, a synopsis, and link(s) to retailer(s). If it’s a book you’ve already reviewed, link to the review. Return to Reading at the Beach and leave a link in the comments.
This week’s letter is: I
This week pick: Ilona Andrews — Bayou Moon
What the book’s about: Set in the same world as On the Edge, it features William, a wolf changeling, who is recruited by the Weird’s secret service to eliminate one of it’s greatest adversary, and hopefully prevent a war between two rival nations in the Weird. Cerise Mar, a native of the Mire (the bayou), is trying to find her parents and stop her family’s land from falling into the hands of a rival clan. Their paths cross and William learns that the man who’s responsible for taking Cerise’s parents is the same man he’s hunting. Much blood shed will ensue before William and Cerise get their Happily Ever After (it has a strong romantic story line).
Why this book?: It was inevitable. I’m a fan of her Kate Daniels series and I really liked the first book set in The Edge. I’m approximately 100 pages into it, and it looks like it’s going to be better than the first. It’s also the longest book Ilona and Gordon have written. It comes in at 447 pages, not including the Magic Slays teaser (Kate #5).
