Step into a whole new world in the first Novel of the Edge from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Kate Daniels series.

The Edge lies between worlds, on the border between the Broken, where people 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...

Rose Drayton thought if she practiced her magic, she could build a better life for herself. But things didn’t turn out the way she’d planned, and now she works an 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 Rose (and her power).
But when a flood of creatures hungry for magic invade the Edge, Declan and Rose must overcome their differences and work together to destroy them—or the beasts will devour the Edge and everyone in it...


  • Assumptions

    By math wizard
    Excellent story which I enjoyed! Rose meets Declan and the fun begins. When you make assumptions you have lots of room for error. Family is very important to Rose and Declan has to learn to be more fully truthful. As a result of Declan leaving stuff out you will read an excellent action based mystery with humor and romance. I just wish there was more than one book to this story!
  • More paranormal romance than urban fiction

    By Savvy Apper
    I'm a huge fan of the Kate Daniels series, so I was excited to read this first book in a new series by the same author. The writing and detail in world creation are excellent, as I've come to expect from Andrews, but the characters fell flat for me. The story also has much more focus on the romantic relationship between the two main characters at the expense of the plot. I suppose if you prefer paranormal romance to urban fiction, then you'll probably love this book and series, but it just wasn't for me.
