Editorial Reviews

About the Author

After spending too many years as an industrial engineer, Shannon learned to write from her husband, bestselling author Jim Butcher. She learned writing craft in order to help him with his stories, but found the idea of writing her own too compelling to resist. She lives in Missouri with her husband and son, where conversations at the dinner table are more often about things someone made up than about anything that’s actually happened. Feel free to contact Shannon via her website.

More About the Author

Since launching her career in 2007, award-winning author Shannon K. Butcher has penned more than eighteen titles, including the paranormal romance series, the Sentinel Wars; the action-romance series, the Edge; and a handful of romantic suspense novels and works of short fiction. Being a former engineer and current nerd, she frequently uses charts, graphs and tables to aid her in the mechanics of story design and to keep track of all those pesky characters and magical powers. An avid beader and glass artist, she spends her free time playing with colored glass and beads. You can find her online at http://shannonkbutcher.com/.

I love her strong female characters.
Spoilers** * * * I cannot believe that as a covert agent, Razor has never been trained or taught about mental reconditioning or brainwashing.

Roxanne ("Razor") is on a job to catch the thief in the act of stealing corporate data. She fails. Her boss, Bella, believes that Razor is being stalked by Razor's ex-boyfriend and assigns Tanner to babysit her. Tanner has returned from the Special Forces after the deaths of his brother and father and request of his remaining brother.

Razor soon realizes that the stalker is actually from a secret military organization that is sent to retrieve information. Over the course of the book, Razor works with Tanner and others to verify the information and save her best friend, Jake, from the military organization/rogue group.

The plot was well-developed and action paced. Tanner's character was believable, likeable, and heroic. Razor, on the other hand, was not.

I hated Razor because she has a tendency to run off on her own when she knew that she was being targeted by the military organization. In addition, Razor always was ready to charge off into a situation to save Jack and leave Tanner behind if he could not stick to her schedule. Her plans though were often poorly thought out and would have gotten them killed. She demanded to be the one to question a member even though she had no experience in interrogation. Plus, Razor rested very little and her lack of mental alertness could have risked the team. Her only theme was: "Must save Jack; Jack can't be compromised; Jack will always act in my best interest; I will do anything to save Jack."

I kept wanting to say: "Leave the job to the professionals! No, don't charge off into that area. You are providing no back up for Tanner."

RAZOR'S EDGE by Shannon K. Butcher

RAZOR'S EDGE, released November 2011, is the second book in The Edge series by Shannon K. Butcher. A romantic suspense series, The Edge novels focus on a group of elite, military trained personnel who have all been `conditioned' and `trained' as killing machines, and are somehow linked to a 20 year old experimental operation known as The Threshold Project. The Threshold Project was a failure that left many children, who are now adults, on the brink of psychological collapse and physical destruction. The Edge is a private security company backed by Payton Bainbridge and owner Bella Bayne..

Roxanne `Razor' Haught is a operative working for The Edge.--A group of trained security experts, in the field of military and corporate espionage. But when an assignment goes wrong, Razor's supervisor Bella Bayne is pissed. Razor is assigned a partner, a babysitter in one--Tanner O'Connell. An ex-military man, Tanner has returned state side, on compassionate leave, due to a family accident, that killed his father and brother, Tanner needs this job, to help pay for his mother's expenses and his sister in laws family and children. So under the guise of training, Razor is expected to train Tanner in the ways of The Edge.

With her ego hurting, Razor makes several attempts to elude Tanner, and takes him on a wild ride through downtown Dallas, but a burglary that destroys her childhood home, and an explosion that rocks her new place turn a lesson in self-pity, into a search and rescue. Razor realizes that she has become a target. When a mysterious, encrypted email arrives, from her best friend Jake Staite......saying to `burn everything, they are coming', Razor knows that something is wrong.

Second in the Edge romantic suspense series based on the employees of The Edge in Dallas, Texas. The couple focus is on Roxanne "Razor" Haught and Tanner O'Connell.

My Take
These guys were nuts! Any chances they had to escape, they should have taken them no matter who they had to leave behind if only so they could get help and get back to free them faster!! And then the crap that Tanner lets Razor get away with. Oh man...I just want to tie that girl up and slap a gag on her!

Somebody's slipping...in Living on the Edge: An Edge Novel, the first book in the series, Tanner is already working for The Edge; now, Butcher claims he's the new guy. Although, to be fair, Bella does claim that most everyone is out on missions and she doesn't note the characters who are in that first book so maybe this one is concurrent with the first...?

WTF?? How can the guys think that the bad guys aren't going to thoroughly check Tanner out for tracking devices, etc.?? I'd'a thought they'd have had some hot tech gadgets that would get around this kind of scrutiny!

Nah, it just bugged me up the wazoo that Butcher got lazy and went for the overdone clichés just so she can get through the really dramatic action at the end. It was enough of a cliché that Tanner got all protective about Roxanne and it did make sense. Guys are just wired that way. Especially honorable men like Tanner. But her capture, Tanner's takedowns, and the eventual rescue was just too easy.

The Story
Roxanne just can't keep her mind on the job. Her ex-boyfriend keeps sending guys to follow her, harass her and Bella makes her take the week off work and get him sorted out.
