Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Wal-Mart, and magic is a fairy tale) and the Weird (where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny). Only Edgers like Rose can easily travel from one world to the next, but they never truly belong in either.
Rose thought if she practiced her magic, she could build a
better life for herself. But things didn’t turn out how she planned,
and now she works a minimum wage, off the books job in the Broken just
to survive. Then Declan Camarine, a blueblood noble straight out of the
deepest part of the Weird, comes into her life, determined to have her
(and her power).
But when a terrible danger invades the Edge from
the Weird, a flood of creatures hungry for magic, Declan and Rose must
work together to destroy them—or they’ll devour the Edge and everyone in
it. From Goodreads.
I am up to date in the Kate Daniels series and have to wait for ages for Ilona Andrews to finish the next book. Luckily I can now go on to devour this series while I wait.
I really enjoyed this book and I have already ordered the next book from the library. Rose is a strong character that will fight for the survival of her family as she has done for a while. I also really like Declan and that he just lets Rose make all the wrong conclusions to anything he says. I am looking forward to the next book.
