If you're looking for an urban fantasy series that will knock your socks off and make you forget your name, I can't speak highly enough of Candace Blevins' Only Human series, and book 5 was unbelievable. -Leslie OBrien
I was thrilled, shocked, grief-stricken, horrified, justified, and relieved, and that was just the first few chapters! -Gwendolyn Brooks/The Author Cheerleader
Urban fantasy with heart and soul. -Lady Readsalot
The book starts off strong and just kept going. -Bibliowyrm
Candace Blevins caught my imagination in the first chapter of this book and took me along for an unforgettable journey. -Cheri Coleman
Once again, Candace Blevins' fascinating and well developed supernatural world full of wonderful characters was enthralling and kept me glued to the pages until the very end. -Evampire/Eva Millien
Another epic journey through the Blevins universe that will have you glued to every page! -Gab
With so many hooks to this series, the coup-de-grace is the absolute certainty that as a reader, you literally have *no* idea what is coming next. -Jaycee
If there is one book that I would recommend for women around the world to read ... I just couldn't pick ONE, but instead, I would say that they need to get on the wagon that is Kirsten O'Shea book series. -Tanja Miloš
I was on the edge of my seat as Kirstin traveled and learned and grew and I tried really hard to beat her to the conclusion and couldn't. -Gina DeWitt
This series has become the series that I use to judge all other paranormal/UF books. I read a book and it's good, but not Only Human good. -Heart5
Ms. Blevins uses words to paint her canvas of China as both the background and the foreground. It's vivid and enticing. I immediately read it a second time - needless to say I loved it. -Pat Orendorff
The Only Human series is one of my all time favorite series. -Sue

As Kirsten goes on her quest and Lauren learns from Kristen's Shifu, in China, both learn a great deal about themselves and their abilities. The gamut of emotions continues as they return to the USA and head to Massachusetts to get Lauren settled into University life. In Edge Of Humanity, you learn even more about Lauren and see her spectacular growth. I personally was proud of Lauren! Tears came to my eyes, my stomach hurt from laughing so hard, my heart was mended and rebroken again all in this book! In my humble opinion Edge Of Humanity is the best book yet in the Only Human series. Candace Blevins surpassed all my expectations! Candace accomplished something, not all authors are capable of, leaving me begging for more! And now I will be impatiently waiting for book 6 of the Only Human series!
Down time even has a purpose for Kirsten, and she uses it well to see that her daughter is strengthened in all ways beyond the physical. Spirituality merges with and through supposed magic, and there is something to be garnered from all of it beyond an intriguing read. But an intriguing read it is, and geography notwithstanding, Kirsten's mental, spiritual and physical work-out goes a long way towards making her a stronger person, as well as a more lethal weapon.
And I *still* can't say with any accuracy what might be coming next, but man, I have got to get me some of this koolaid...
I very much enjoyed Kirsten's journey in China as she remembers her past there while enjoying her present. I felt like I had more questions when I was done reading that portion of the book than I did when I started. Kirsten is the kind of heroine that I want to keep reading the next story about. She has a compelling story and personality that draw a reader in and sneakily wraps her energy around them. The reader can only read as fast as possible to find out where they are being taken and if the ride will end well or by going over a cliff.
At the end of the book, I was happy for Lauren, conflicted about Kirsten, mad at Nathan, and a little confused about Cora. Other major characters didn't seem to change my opinion of them - this time. There is no true ending nor a cliff-hanger but I still am eagerly looking forward to the next book in the series!
Kirsten continues to be an engaging character, trying to navigate supernatural politics even though she's "only human" (although by this book, she's pretty clearly not - whether she's a Valkyrie or the reincarnation of Frejya or something else is still up in the air). I really liked seeing the aspects of her motherhood, which humanizes her in the face of what she does to Gavin, which was pretty inhuman. In Kirsten's on-again-off-again relationship with Nathan, she's off-again through most of this book and that's getting a little tiresome, so I'm hoping there will either be more resolution or maybe Kirsten will move on in the next book. I appreciated her strength in choosing to end things with The Abbott in previous books and the on-again-off-again thing with Nathan is makes her seem wishy-washy. Nathan's pride gets a little "screen time" in this book, and RaeLynn is an engaging character. I liked her a lot in the cross over to the Chattanooga Supernaturals series. She's got a great sense of humor and her own agenda, so I hope we get to see more of her in future as well.
Come to learn deep meditation and the feelings involved.
The usual cast of characters make me want more but then we get to meet new ones and that doesn't help my greed for more.
I had a hard time saying goodbye to this chapter of the continuing saga but look forward to where else I will get to go.
