Fate's Edge

Fate's Edge (The Edge, #3)Fate's Edge by Ilona Andrews
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book three in Ilona Andrews' Edge series. While each book can almost stand alone, you will miss a lot of character development if you don't read them in order.

In this book, we meet Audrey Callahan, and Edger with an interesting talent; her magic unlocks doors. And not just doors, any lock; safes, bars, Fort Knox, anything. She has distanced herself from her family due to a horrible instance that happened in her past, and now she wants nothing to do with them.

Audrey is just finally getting her life together, she has a legitimate job, her own house, Ling the Merciless, her pet raccoon that she loves, when her world crashes around her and her father shows up asking for her help on a job. The job is huge, and she knows it won't end well, but she trades her skills for her family's absence in her life.

After the heist takes place, we meet Kaldar Mar, whom we met in the last book. He is an operative of the Mirror, one of the Weird's secret op organizations. He is offered the job to find the item that Audrey stole, and in the process, give a little bit of pain to the Hand, the rival organization that wiped out two-thirds of the adult population of his family.

Kaldar and Audrey were really fun to read in this book. It was a lot of tension, and they bickered all the time, but where most author's leave me feeling annoyed at all the bickering, this was just fun. It was awesome "watching" them dance around each other, waiting for them to take the fall.

I also loved the fact that Jack and George, from book one, were really brought into play in this book. Although the Edge series only has four books, Ms. Andrews left it open that if she chooses in the future, she could do a spin-off series on Jack and George.

This series is a little heavier on the romance than Ilona Andrews' Kate Daniels series, but I like it still. This book does leave you wanting more, and it's a good thing that there's another book in the series. I can't wait to read the next book, and if you haven't picked up this series yet, do so! You won't be sorry.
