Another thing I hate romance books to contain are needless and long separations like the one included in this story. The hero intentionally broke the heroine's heart ending their 3 month romance because her brother the king didn't want them hooking up. Are those the actions of an alpha male in love? More like a man who is either a coward or did not care enough about his lover. To add insult to injury he admits that he would do it again. What undying passion. It didn't even make sense as to why the king would object as the heroine was not a virgin when she became the heroes lover.
I had other issues with the story including that it dragged in parts. Most of the time that the hero and heroine spent together they were bickering. It got old fast. Also the action was lackluster and limited.
Heavy storms destroyed earth and floods cover most of the world, making earth a place where only the strong survives. In Riordan world that is just find with him. At a young age he didn’t want to become a farmer. So, when he had the opportunity he broke free from his family. Setting in motion the life he’s living now. Where he is constantly striving to prove that he’s no one to mess with.
Now part of a new family…they call themselves the Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is a better place than the life he would have lived or so he thought.
Now he has come full circles. He must go undercover as a compliant to uncover what the Brotherhood’s enemy has in stored for them next. If Riordan had his choice on who must take on the mission he would have chosen anyone either than Eiryn.
Eiryn has been betrayed by everyone in her life, and in this new world Eiryn learned that the only person you can count on is yourself. However, picked to go on a mission, she must put everything she learned about becoming a warrior and become a soft compliant female to uncover the enemy plot on destroying the Brotherhood.
Edge of Control is Waterworld meets The Day after Tomorrow. I don’t know about how other people viewed these movies. But I found them to be very lackluster. I didn’t feel lost more so that the author had the readers spending more time in the main characters’ head, then in interaction with other characters in the story. So often we get some dialogue that moved the story along then we are submerged once more in the head of Riordan and/or Eiryn.
What made me want to read this book to begin with was the principle of a strong ruthless warrior who tries to overcome his past and in doing so, find that one person who understood him and how he ticks and is okay with the man that he becomes. All the elements where there for a great story with an excellent plot line, but I just didn’t feel the characters.
I am not going to blame the author, I am convinced that with this series you must start the series from the beginning and work your way up to this point.
So, that would be my project over the next few weeks and maybe my outlook on this story will change. And since Wulf story is next, I better make catching up rather quickly. Because even though Riordan and Eiryn as a whole didn’t click for me, there was just something about Wulf that caught my attention.
