[Archive] LITERAL ADDICTION's Review of Edge of Darkness

J.T Geissinger A life-long lover of reading and a self-professed “book addict,” J.T. Geissinger didn’t realize her dream of writing a novel until a milestone birthday forced her to take stock of her goals in life. Always believing the right time to commit to putting pen to paper would magically announce itself, it took waking up one cold January morning with a shiny new zero as the second number in her age to kick start her determination.

Starting on that very day, she wrote what would become Shadow’s Edge in a little over four months and submitted it to several literary agents. Nothing happened. Thinking that was the end of that but by no means willing to give up on her dreams of being published, she began work on a second manuscript.

Then, during a trip to Italy in honor of their 10th wedding anniversary and the honeymoon she and her husband never took, she received an email that would change her life. It was from an agent, Marlene Stringer of Stringer Literary, and it contained the three words every aspiring author longs to hear: “I loved it.”

Marlene sold the manuscript, initially titled The Skinwalker’s Daughter, to Montlake Romance who published it six months later. Hitting the #1 Amazon bestseller lists for Fantasy Romance in both the US and the UK within weeks of publication, Shadow’s Edge is the culmination of the refusal to give up (some would say grow up) with the staunch belief that all good things come to those who wait…and sometimes to those who wait longest.

Six years after a shocking tragedy left her emotionally and physically scarred, Ember Jones lives a life of quiet isolation in Barcelona. Determined to keep her troubled past a secret, she keeps her head down and her heart locked up tight. Until the day a beautiful, mysterious stranger walks into her life, and her carefully controlled world is shattered forever.

Christian McLoughlin is unlike anyone Ember has ever met. Wealthy, cultured, and utterly charismatic, he also has dark secrets of his own. They succumb to the undeniable pull between them and embark on a passionate affair, but things turn explosive when the truth about Christian and the reason he came to Barcelona is exposed. As their dark pasts collide, the two unlikely lovers find themselves caught in a web of danger and deceit that neither of them might survive.

The Edge of Darkness, where hunter becomes hunted, no one can be trusted, and love is the most dangerous game of them all.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Chelle:
*eARC received via the Publisher from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

J.T never fails to captivate with her Night Prowler novels, and from the very start of this installment she had me saying 'wow' once again.

Edge of Darkness is a delightful mix of intrigue, action, drama and romance with a decidedly Dan Brown antagonist feel, it was a wonderful read.

Edge of Darkness's hero is Leander's younger brother, Christian, who has willingly offered himself up for a suicide missing to keep the Clan's secrets and defeat their nemesis.

Our heroine is just like us... a plainly beautiful woman who doesn't believe she's pretty and hides behind baggy clothes and books.

Their interactions are not at all easy and fluffy. There is tension galore, and the secrets that each of them are keeping just adds to the intrigue.

This installment of the series focuses a lot more on the Ikati in their human lives, and therefore is a bit different than the other books thus far. It's a little slower, but steady in its grip.

Fans of both J.T Geissinger and Dan Brown will certainly see some influence in this book with both the very beginning and the other villain that the couple must overcome. I've read some low rated reviews because of this, but there are very few books out there that don't have similarities, and if you like both of these authors as much as I do, why not just enjoy the ride!?

I gave the book an easy 4 skulls and still highly recommend this series!
