3.0 out of 5 stars It was just....okay, December 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fate's Edge (The Edge, Book 3) (Mass Market Paperback)
I'm a big fan of Ilona Andrews' work - the Kate Daniels series is outstanding, and the previous Edge books were very good. This latest one, not so much. It was just....okay. About halfway through, I was really considering putting it down and going on to something else because the story had lost its focus. There's only so many times you can stand to read Kaldar's "witty" thoughts because honestly, there were only a very few of those. I was tired of hearing about Audrey's ass, too. It was worn-out dialog and not fun to read.

It just was really repetitive and boring. I enjoyed George and Jack, and thought those characters were really developed nicely in this book. I cried when Jack went into rend mode - really an end of innocence of a sort there, and well written.

I'd like to see another Edge book, but it would need to be at the higher standards of the first two books. Maybe tell the grandmother's story, build up some more background on the Edge world, and make it something I'm going to stay up all night to read.

I totally agree with this review. This book just didn't have the spark in it. And for some reason, parts of it read very much like a generic romance novel. The ending was anti-climatic. The first 2 Edge books were way better, and I like how the books all tie together.
