Thanks to everyone for all the great suggestions for what to read next in the Gateway Experiment. I spent some time thinking about it and looked up the ones that caught my fancy. I finally decided on LegeArtis’s recommendation of Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews. Here’s her comment:
Ok, I thought about this...Bayou Moon by Ilona Andrews has awesome story, bad-ass heroine and a hero I think every man would like to be friend with.
You have one big family feud, behind-the-curtains war between two countries led by spies and assassins with awesome gadgets, hero with impressive action figure army and heroine who has so much on her shoulders, but no luxury to go nuts about it. As if their lives weren’t complicated enough, they had to cross the swamp on a same boat...
The whole bad-ass comment caught my attention right off the bat, combine that with fantasy cold war and I’m sold. I was also curious about reading a book that was written by a husband/wife team. I’m curious to see if the hero reads more like a guy, if that makes any sense.
I’ll report back soon. Stay tuned!
