it was amazing

The best Edge book yet. The characters are all brilliantly drawn, even the minor supporting ones, the plot is gripping and the overall mood is lighter than in the previous book in the series, Bayou Moon. I like the worldbuilding of the Edge universe a lot, and this book adds a lot of depth and excitement to an already complex world. Characters from previous books grow and change, and there is a thread of continuity regarding an external threat that runs through all three books.

Sadly, I think this very complexity and layered nature might be the reason why the Edge books do not sell as well as they should. The story straddles genres, so it's not easily pigeonholed and it is too densely packed to appeal easily to people looking for light paranormal popcorn fare. Also, the emotional focus is evenly split between family and romance. It's one of the things that makes these books so good and the characters so very real, but with a sharper, clearer focus they might sell better. And they would make awesome movies.
