Bayou Born
Hailey Edwards
Rating: A

What I’m Talking About:

Bayou Born is the first title in Ms. Edwards’ new Foundling series. This urban fantasy is the stuff dreams are made of, people. I…can’t even start to explain. Edwards does a beautiful job of unraveling the world she created and I really don’t want to give anything away—or take away the reveals 🙂

The humor in this book KILLED ME. *ded*

“‘Playing beard for your covert meeting beats sitting around the house under a magnifying glass.’”

“Well, that answered my question. Wrap his hips with animal pelts, pass the man a club, and Cole would be a Neolithic dream come true. Good thing I wasn’t sleeping much these days.”

With other terms like lady-junk, birth cannon—along with a bajillion others I didn’t mark—I spend a good amount of time trying to not do a spit-take while reading this smart and sexy title.

In reading Bayou Born, I got a great introduction to Luce and her coterie—and I can’t wait to read MORE. This first title merely whet my appetite for more of the Foundling series.

My Rating: A, Loved It

About the Book:

Her beginning may be our end . . . 

Deep in the humid Mississippi bayou, a half-wild child is dragged from the murky waters. She has no memories, no family and is covered in mysterious markings. Adopted by the policeman who rescued her, Luce Boudreau follows him onto the force, determined to prove herself in the eyes of those who are still suspicious.

However, there’s more of a battle ahead than Luce could possibly imagine. She may be an orphan without a past, but no one – including Luce herself – could ever be prepared for the truth of her dark, powerful destiny . . .
