Read in August, 2012

I should start by saying that I have really enjoyed most of the stories written by Andrews and her husband. I have always liked Andrea as a character and wanted to read her story. This didn't quite live up to my expectations though and I've vacillated between ratings.

The crazy mythological smorgasbord couldn't really hold my attention this time. I could overlook that if the characterizations were amazing but this fell short. In the course of their story, some of the decisions Andrea and Raphael make seem ridiculous. Plus, the romantic tension between them came across manufactured. Kate and Curran set a high bar though so that could be my problem. Still, I think this would have worked better as a novella.

Maurinejt Oh no!! I was afraid of that. Why don't they just get back to Kate Daniels already???!!

Leah I read on their blog that the next Edge novel will be the last and that they are working on the next Kate right now.
