Editorial Reviews

Review

This urban fantasy is the stuff dreams are made of, people. (That's What I'm Talking About)

Everything about Bayou Born is epic and mysterious and dark, and I LOVE IT. So many secrets surrounding the swamp, a group of characters masquerading as a security firm, and around the main character herself, whose own history is shrouded in secret. Her actual secret, her history, BLEW MY MIND. I didn't predict anything anywhere near that immense Freaking Plot Twist, and I'm still reeling from it. This book hurt me so badly near the end and my heart still hurts when I think about it. But that ending has me so excited for the next book, which I need ASAP.(Goodreads)

Hailey Edwards takes us on a suspenseful ride through swamp and city with scary, human eating heroes and confused, possibly maleficent heroines to show us that our best selves can overcome not only our worst selves, but also other mean and scary things, and emerge, scuffed and bruised but ultimately victorious. (LiveJournal)

Be prepared for a fast-moving journey filled with the unexpected. (RT Book Reviews)

Hailey Edwards has exceeded all expectations. (Goodreads)

Well-plotted fantasy continues to engage the reader with its intriguing characters, heart-pounding action, suspenseful intrigue and subtle romance. (RT Book Reviews)

Edwards has this way of writing that makes you feel like the narrator is talking to you and that you're old friends. (Goodreads)

The world building is fresh ... The characters are well-drawn and easy to root for. And the romance really hits the spot. (Red Hot Books)

Edwards [creates] amazing fantasy worlds that the reader becomes completely engrossed in. (Goodreads)

"One aspect of her writing I enjoy is her ability to take the mundane and with a few changes, turn it into something unique and unexpected. She builds dynamic character bases, using common mythology but takes it one step further using previously unseen species or imbibing currently known species with skills and know how that offers readers something new in the paranormal world. (Smexybooks.com)

Hailey has taken several elements of paranormal storytelling and created a whole new dimension for her characters to thrive in their muddied, twisted merriment. Some things aren't as they seem, ensnaring readers to follow along. (Goodreads)
