Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews

Title: Bayou Moon
Author: Ilona Andrews
Series: The Edge, Book 2
Genre: Hillbilly fantasy. (The opposite of urban fantasy, in a way.)
Setting: The swamp between the Broken (where science works) and the Weird (where magic works).
Reason for Reading: I enjoyed the first book and I need distraction.
Finished In: Days
Pages: 447, plus a preview of the new Magic book.
Copyright Date: October 2010
Cover: A woman with a glowing sword leans against a tree. Or else she's randomly sticking her butt out. Behind her is a sort of transparent guy with a quiver strapped to his naked manly chest.
First line: "William sipped some beer from the bottle of Modelo Especial and gave the Green Arrow his hard stare."
Best part: The little moments between the love interests.
Worst part: One of the protagonists had played a very different role in the previous book, and the shifts weren't sufficiently explained in my view.
Imaginary Theme Song: Proud Mary
Grade: C+
Recommended for: Those who like the Andrews writing team should not miss this title.
