Bayou ​Moon (The Edge 2.) 12 csillagozás

Ilona Andrews: Bayou Moon

Vigyázat! Cselekményleírást tartalmaz.

The Edge lies between worlds, on the border between the Broken, where people shop at Walmart and magic is a fairytale–and the Weird, where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny…

Cerise Mar and her unruly clan are cash poor but land rich, claiming a large swathe of the Mire, the Edge swamplands between the state of Louisiana and the Weird. When her parents vanish, her clan’s long-time rivals are suspect number one.

But all is not as it seems. Two nations of the Weird are waging a cold war fought by feint and espionage, and their conflict is about to spill over into the Edge—and Cerise’s life . William, a changeling soldier who left behind the politics of the Weird, has been forced back into service to track down a rival nation’s spymaster.

When William’s and Cerise’s missions lead them to cross paths, sparks fly—but they’ll have to work together if they want to succeed…and survive.

Ilona Andrews: Bayou Moon

Valahogy nem volt az igazi. Nem tudom, hogy mi volt a bajom vele, talán a hősnőt nem sikerült megkedvelnem… így csak 4 csillag, mert akció az volt bőven. :)

Ilona Andrews: Bayou Moon

Egyre jobb ez a sorozat. Az előző kötetben a romantika volt a középpontban. A második kötet viszont sokkal inkább a fantasy elemekre és az akcióra helyezi a hangsúlyt. Két fő cselekményszál van, az egyik a viszály a másik családdal, a másik szál pedig a két szülő eltűnése mindez megspékelve egy enyhe romantikus szállal.

A sztori izgalmas és nem ereszt még az éjszaka közepén se, mikor az embernek már leragad a szeme. A szereplők tetszettek, nagyon egyediek voltak, egyedi képességekkel. A két főszereplő is a szívemhez nőtt, de jobban örültem volna, ha Will kicsit többet van farkasalakban. A legnagyobb problémám a könyvvel, hogy ha még egyszer meglátom valahol a „sonovabitch” szót, lefejelek valakit…

És azt hiszem, itt adom fel a sorozatot :)

Kalandos ez a kötet, sok minden történik (néha túlságosan is), olvastatja is magát, de nem igazán sikerült megkedvelnem a szereplők zömét, sőt.

“Your turn,”William said. “Go for it.”
Jack lunged at Gaston’s legs. Gaston tensed and jumped, catching the lower branch of an oak.
Jack rolled up. “What the hell?”
“Did you expect him to stand still for you?”
Gaston grinned.

“My youngest brother killed a lynx yesterday,” Rose said. “Apparently it came into his territory and left some spray marks. He skinned it, smeared himself in its blood, and put its pelt on his shoulders like a cape. And that’s how he came dressed for breakfast.”
Cerise drank some beer. “My sister kills small animals and hangs their corpses on a tree, because she thinks she is a monster and she’s convinced we’ll eventually banish her from the house. They’re her rations. Just in case.”
Rose blinked. “I see. I think we’re going to get along just fine, don’t you?”
“I think so, yes.”

The kitchen is a madhouse this time of day, and if you go down there, there will be no end of questions. Who are you? Are you a blueblood? Are you rich? Are you, by the way?”
“No,” William said.
“Married?”
“No.”
Kaldar moved his head from side to side. “Well, one out of two isn’t bad. Rich and unmarried would be perfect, married and poor would be two strikes out, nothing good there. Poor and unmarried, I can work with that."

This family was like a minefield. He needed to sit still and keep his mouth shut, before he got into any more trouble. And if someone offered him a handmade sweater, he’d snap their neck and take off for the woods.

The inside of Kaldar’s head was a mysterious place better left alone by all sane people.

Cerise twisted and kicked him in the head, not very hard. The blow took him just below the ear. He shook his head, looking a bit dazed. Cerise rolled to her feet.
“What the hell was that for?” he growled.
“For being a jackass.”

“Who is it?” she asked.
“It’s me. Can I come in?”
“It depends. If I don’t let you in, will you huff and puff and blow my house down?”
She had no idea.
“I’m more of a kick the door open and cut everyone inside to ribbons kind of wolf.”

“He’s [William] insane,” Richard said next to her.
“I know,” she told him. “He held it in all this time. He’s unbelievable, isn’t he?”
Richard stared at her for a long moment and raised his eyes to the sky. “What are all of you doing up there? You’ve lost your minds.”

“Aunt Pete panicked everybody. She thought you might have done something rash.”
William stood on the rail. The damn thing was two inches wide. He padded along it like it was solid ground and made some shooing motions at Kaldar’s back.
She tried to ignore him. “I never do anything rash.”
William mouthed, “Bullshit.”
“She saw you leave with the blueblood.”
Cerise raised her eyebrows. “I had myself a nice long cry and then I fell asleep in the chair. Did you expect to find me on the floor, making out with him half-naked?”
William nodded several times, a big grin painted on his face.
“I wouldn’t put it past you,”Kaldar said. “Or him. Who knows what the hell he might do?”
William made a cutting motion across his throat.
“He might kill you if you’re not careful,”she told him.
“Who, Will? We’re the best of friends.”
William rolled his eyes.
“Thick as thieves, I’m sure,”she mumbled.
“If you do decide to make out with him, try to get caught,”Kaldar said. “Easier to rope him into marriage that way.”

Richard drew back. He opened his mouth, obviously struggling.
“A changeling,” he finally managed.
She nodded.
“What …”
“A wolf.”
Richard cleared his throat. “Well.”
She waited for him.
“It could be worse,” he said finally. “Efrenia married an arsonist. Jake’s wife is a kleptomaniac. I suppose, a psychopathic spree killer isn’t that odd of a choice, considering. We’ll just have to work around it. Gods know, we’ve had practice. He’s certainly good in a fight.”
