    We really had fun working on this one, Ilona got to put in her Ocean s Eleven and Leverage elements and I got to put in my disdain of Prosperity Preachers, plus there is romance and fighting Bayou Moon is still my favorite but this is a very close second Oh, crap, am I damning my own book with faint praise Probably, they should put that on there as a blurb, not as good as the last one but not completely terrible either.

    OMG Bad boys, right I loved Kaldar when I met him in Bayou Moon, so I was excited to read his story And he didn t disappoint Neither did Audrey, for that matter I loved the snarky back and forth between those two, because arguing is the spice of every good relationship Ah, ah, ah You know I m right, ladies Now, I don t mean the are you fucking my sister arguments I mean the kind of everyday battles you fight over the small stuff Remotes, covers, thermostats, driving skills, and who OMG Bad boys, right I loved Kaldar when I met him in Bayou Moon, so I was excited to read his story And he didn t disappoint Neither did Audrey, for that matter I loved the snarky back and forth between those two, because arguing is the spice of every good relationship Ah, ah, ah You know I m right, ladies Now, I don t mean the are you fucking my sister arguments I mean the kind of everyday battles you fight over the small stuff Remotes, covers, thermostats, driving skills, and who gets the good side of the bed These are the sorts of squabbles that keep things exciting If you enjoy reading about couples who can quarrel like pros, then you ll love this installment in the Edge series I d give this 5 stars if I was basing it solely on how much chemistry the couple in question had Audrey was awesome, funny, and spunky, butimportantly Kaldar was the type of book boyfriend that melted my panties So why didn t this one get all 5 stars from me Two reasons One, it took me several chapters to get into this one Not that they were awful or unreadable by any means, but the story simple didn t suck me in at first.And the second reason The conclusion felt rushed, and the actual ending was unbelievably abrupt Yes, everything turned out the way I wanted, butI don t know All that buildup, and then Poof it s overfarts Still.I have yet to read anything by these authors that wasn t good And this was no exception Definitely recommended for fans of Ilona Andrews Oh, and did anyone else think Kaldar was The Edge s version of Roman from the Kate Daniels series

    This third installment in Ilona Andrews THE EDGE series may be the best one I ve read yet The Edge is a semi magical border land that lies between two dimensions a magical version of our world the Weird and our normal world what the Weird and Edgers call the Broken because their magical powers don t work here Only a few people can cross over the magical borders in either direction, and Audrey Callahan is one of them Audrey is one of an Edge family of gifted and dedicated con artists This third installment in Ilona Andrews THE EDGE series may be the best one I ve read yet The Edge is a semi magical border land that lies between two dimensions a magical version of our world the Weird and our normal world what the Weird and Edgers call the Broken because their magical powers don t work here Only a few people can cross over the magical borders in either direction, and Audrey Callahan is one of them Audrey is one of an Edge family of gifted and dedicated con artists, but she s trying to leave that life behind her and go straight, living in the Broken and working as a private investigator Her magical talent opening any lock, no matter how complex When her grifter father begs her to do one last job with him and her no good brother NGB so they can, once again, get NGB into rehab, she caves Too bad the item she helps them steal has a lot of extremely dangerous killers after it as well as Kaldar Mar, a gifted con man himself, not to mention a thief and spy.It s great fun to see Audrey and Kaldar clash with each other and burn for each other at the same time, while they re running elaborate cons in an effort to re steal the item whose theft got Audrey s family into trouble in the first place And I was delighted to see the young brothers George and Jack from the first book get some major on the page time here The plot was gripping, and made excellent use of everyone s magical talents

It got a little intense and I thought someone might get Bitchslapped, good thing we are all friends Figuring out custody and visitation rights to both Jack and George I m pretty sure that the IAA group collectively adopted them There is a very complicated google spreadsheet on who has them when Cutest Animal sidekick Ling the Merciless Do not expect mercy from Ling the Merciless The sexy banter between Kaldar and Audrey What happens when two conmen fall in love They steal each other s hearts of courseAt the door, Audrey called, Are you coming No, just breathing hard, love He glanced at her and was rewarded by an outraged glare, followed by, Oh, my GodGeorge s new very dark sense of humor to match his necromancyKaldar, if you kill her, please don t shoot her in the head, George said, his face cold, as if carved from a glacier Raising a body with a shattered brain requiresmagic, and I think we can use her corpse to make sure her relatives will get run out of townSeeing Lord Leatherpants and the Hobo Queen in action a few years laterJust stay close to us If we get in trouble, we ll kill everythingAnd finally that moment when everything comes together the story is complete and you realized it was even better the second time though.Original Review April 20144.5 StarsThis was my favorite of the series so far I was skeptical that Kalder could carry the romantic interest lead of the book.and boy I was so wrong Not only did he carry it, he gave it a smoldering look, hit it over the head with a club and carried it off into a cave to have his way with it He was fun, charming and said some of the wildest things I loved every moment of itOh, I don t know I might grow on you She furrowed her pretty eyebrows Like a cancer Like a favorite viceKalder was the fun talkative less than law abiding favorite uncle in Bayou Moon After the loss of many of his kin he has joined forces with the Mirror against the Hand He needs to find a woman who stole a artifact valuable to the hand and convince her to help him get it back With his charming ways he thought it would be easy to con her into helping But she grew up in a con man family and is a little resistant to his charms Audrey was hilarious, I loved that she is a redeemed bad girls just trying to play it normal Kalder has definitely met his match and while they are working together there just isn t anyway sparks couldn t fly between themHe hit her with his best smile Her eyes widened She took a deep breath Oh no, not that seductive face I m overcome with the need to take off these awful clothes What is happening I do not understand Oooh Ahhh She touched her wrist to her forehead Somebody help me I m being drenched with my own fluids Evil woman See now, you shouldn t have done that, Kaldar said She gave him an innocent look You ve made yourself into a challenge Now I ll have to seduce you out of principle You can try Not that you ll get anywhere If you were in love, that would be one thing, but we both know this is pride talking Audrey patted his forearm It s all right I won t tell anybody about your shameful failure I ll keep it completely confidential She pretended to lock her lips and throw away the key. The story is full of action between funny banter as Kalder and Audrey have to pull off a few jobs along the way to get closer to their target There are multiple altercations with the Hand and a few other dangerous types along the way.But one of the best parts to the story is that Jack and George have stowed away on this adventure Each gets to play a part and they have really come into some of their powers I love the two brothers together as they work their way into all the schemes and plots Kalder is working up Both are proving to be a very large asset and not the burden Kalder once thought they might present when first discovered stowed away I really can t wait to see what those boys think of next.Ilona Andrews does know how to pack in a lot of action, adventure, laughs and some tender moments along the way Again a great read from the authors and a series that has really picked up steam in this book The Edge is quickly becoming one of my favorite worlds and it will be very interesting to see how it all plays out in the final book

    The best part of this book was that Jack and George unexpectedly played such a large part in it They made the book The rest of it I could have done without It was a recovery heist that required another heist first which required yet another heist burglary to pull off that heist It was a bit convoluted Also, the love story goes from zero to sixty out of nowhere Luckily the writing is still engaging, and if this was any other author I probably would have rated this one lower Oh well.

    3,5 StarsBR with the awesome IAA gang Hook is my Kaldar It fits perfectly I wanted to love this book I did want to, badly It didn t work that way though Although IA s usual charm is still there, in the badass characters, in the great dialogs, in the bickering couple, in the freaking awesome side characters, this book was just a tiny bit too slow for me to love.Kaldar and Audrey were great I loved how Kaldar could charm the pants off a nun and how Audrey could con her way into anything Stil 3,5 StarsBR with the awesome IAA gang Hook is my Kaldar It fits perfectly I wanted to love this book I did want to, badly It didn t work that way though Although IA s usual charm is still there, in the badass characters, in the great dialogs, in the bickering couple, in the freaking awesome side characters, this book was just a tiny bit too slow for me to love.Kaldar and Audrey were great I loved how Kaldar could charm the pants off a nun and how Audrey could con her way into anything Still, Kaldar proved a bitmushy than I believed He fell for the heroine and started spewing sunshine comparisons ten minutes after he met her Not exactly ideal for me.I would have prefered a bitresistance on his part I did like Audrey s stance though At least she didn t see him and fell face first.But for me the show was stolen by Jack and George I love these kids I abso frekin lutely love them You can just see what a heartbreaker George will be in a few years I loved how he could play anyone, how he protected Jack and how mature he was at times Jack was a bit of a whiner but he is young He ll grow out of it, and he is too cute to hold it against him

    I wrote this short review long ago but forgot to post it, so here we are actual rating 3 stars, 1 star removed for reasons I ll state later But now that I think of it, this book is closer to 2.5 counting the problem that made me lower my rating It was so meh.I avoided reading this book for months and now that I finally read it, I m relieved One book left before I start the innkeeper chronicles I enjoyed the first 2 two books quite a lot so you might wonder, why didn t I want to read this boo I wrote this short review long ago but forgot to post it, so here we are actual rating 3 stars, 1 star removed for reasons I ll state later But now that I think of it, this book is closer to 2.5 counting the problem that made me lower my rating It was so meh.I avoided reading this book for months and now that I finally read it, I m relieved One book left before I start the innkeeper chronicles I enjoyed the first 2 two books quite a lot so you might wonder, why didn t I want to read this book Truth is, I don t like series in which each book tells the story of someone introduced in the former books I liked William so it wasn t a challenge to read Bayou Moon However, I m not the biggest fan of Kaldar, he just never interested me Was I disappointed Not really, I expected the worst Brief summary if helping her father in this heist means he ll stay away from her forever, she ll happily accept When Kaldar is assigned to retrieve the stolen item, he ll cross paths with Audrey eventually Together, they ll try to find it after her father sold it to God knows who, knowing that the Hand will do anything to have it.If I wanted to rate this book based on George and Jack alone, I would ve given it 5 stars I love those twothan anything in this series They re so funny, cute, adorable, lovely, and cute again I just adore them However, even though they played an important role in this book, I can t help but judge it based on Kaldar and Audrey No, I still don t like him much Audrey is cool I don t think Ilona can write an annoying heroine and not even a not so badass one even if she can t fight It s one of those cases where the secondary characters though were better than the MCsThis book had all your Ilona Andrews usual stuff, cool heroine, humor, badass scenes, fights, not too much romance except for a likable hero If you liked Kaldar in Bayou Moon, you ll like him here as well Even if you didn t, he might grow on you However, for me, I ended up disliking himThe romance even though it was a slow burn as it took them the whole book to get together, it still felt rushed view spoiler She agrees to marry Kaldar after meeting him for 9 days Kaldar is your big bad boy and he suddenly, in one moment of enlightenment, he realizes that Audrey is the one, after 8 days HOW Even for a paranormal romance, it s unacceptable hide spoiler Anyway, if you re looking for something light, Ilona Andrews will never disappoint in delivering an entertaining story with likable characters However, if you want something memorable that will blow your mind, I don t recommend this book.Another thing that annoyed was that the events sometimes were too explained and other times completely rushed Inconsistency view spoiler Especially the last rescue mission Like what the heck happened Moreover, Cerise would leave Kaldar For real Oh yeah right hide spoiler It was still enjoyable enough for 3 stars Until I came across something shocking I was surprised I hope it s not the same in the physical copy and it s corrected but to say that the 4 who wrote the first 4 books in the new testament are Matthew, Mark, Luke, and James is simply unacceptable How did 2 authors, 1 agent, and their editor miss this How did they even get it wrong What surprises youis that IA has always relied on mythology from all over the world only to make such intolerable mistake That and misinterpreting what Jesus Christ said for the sake of the content Oh no, sorry I m so disappointed Therefore, I removed 1 star from my rating even though it should ve beenBut now, after posting this review, I don t think it was worth the 3 stars in the first place that aside It ll be a while before I read the last book.
