Review:

Ilona Andrews is a husband and wife team and they create some of the best books I have ever encountered. Fate’s Edge is surprising and inspiring. The amount of world building that goes into this series and the way in which everything about the book is implemented it feels as though readers can visit the Edge, and the Weird. These places become real and visceral.

Kaldar Mar has been introduced in the previous book although we don’t get a lot about him we do have an idea of what kind of person he is. He cares a lot about his family, there is nothing in the world he wouldn’t do to protect or help them. So becoming a part of the Mirror wasn’t a huge decision for him. He wants to make sure that there will always be someone watching out for his family. Even though he can be arrogant, and egotistical, he is still a likeable character with redeeming qualities.

Audrey has always wanted to love and attention from her family that was always given to her brother. She accepted her role as a pawn in her family but she is always left to pick up the pieces of whatever mess her family gets into. When her dad shows up unexpectedly, she gives him a life-changing ultimatum. Audrey thought she could predict everything for her life, and that she could control it but that was until she met Kaldar Mar.


The Edge series is one of the best there is and I always try to recommend it to as many people as I can. These books do not have to be read in series form but there will be things that won’t make sense if they are read out of order. I encourage everyone to at least try it! You won’t regret it!
