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…
Ilona Andrews has to be my between my most favorite authors because I’ve yet to read one of her books and rate it under four stars. I absolutely love this woman. No wait, let me rephrase. I absolutely love this team (since Mr. Gordon is helping with the books as well).
As you probably know, I am not a Romance chick. I actually can say that I kind of hate the Romance genre. I can count on one hand the total number of Romance books I actually liked. But The Edge, my friends… this is the way I like my Romance.
Now yes, I am aware that The Edge novels are not really Romance novels, but a mix of Romance and Urban Fantasy, the latter being a dominant force. And yes, this is why I love them in the first place. Romance books bore the crap out of me because they have no plot. Most of the time. They are cheesy, most of them are porn. They are shallow. They are idiotic. Meh. But when the Romance element is a small part of the novel I am happy because I don’t have to focus on how much each character wants to get in the other one’s pants. They have more important problems to think about. And then when a romantic moment comes I savor it because it’s like a breath of fresh air on a hot summer day. Yes, I am cheesy. I know. Shut up.
So yeah, that’s why I love The Edge so much. I wish I could find more novels like this one. If you guys have any recommendations please feel free to write them in the comments section. Fat Kitty will be very happy.
