Review: Fate's Edge (The Edge, #3) by Ilona Andrews

Fate's Edge
Paranormal Urban Romance - Magic - Shapeshifters

Audrey Callahan left behind her life in the Edge, and she's determined to stay on the straight and narrow. But when her brother gets into hot water, the former thief takes on one last heist and finds herself matching wits with a jack of all trades... 

Kaldar Mar-a gambler, lawyer, thief, and spy-expects his latest assignment tracking down a stolen item to be a piece of cake, until Audrey shows up. But when the item falls into the hands of a lethal criminal, Kaldar realizes that in order to finish the job, he's going to need Audrey's help.

Love the world! Love the characters!

Whether you are following along in order or you have never read any of the books in this series, you will not miss a thing and never be lost. I thoroughly enjoy the writing team of Ilona Andrews. They know how to bring a world to life with such amazing descriptions. I feel like I am being taking away into The Edge for the first time. We are pulled right back into The Edge on a fun filled adventure. From the first page to the last you will be hanging onto your seat. 

Fate’s Edge is book three in The Edge series. This is Kaldar Mar’s story. Kaldar is always looking for the next adventure and the next con. He’s what we would call a smooth criminal. He will not hesitate to use his charisma and good looks to get what he wants. He has become a member of the Mirror, to gain the means to seek revenge, but he never expect to run across a women who will change his life. I enjoyed Kaldar and his smooth ways as well as his magical skill. 

Audrey is a very fascinating women. Her family are grifters, thieves, and always looking for the next big score. She is very aware of the consequences of that type of life and has tried to make an honest life for herself, but one visit from her father will change all of this, putting her life in danger and putting a man in her path that will change everything. I liked Audrey, she is strong, understands the life of a grifter and has a very unique magical skill. 

I relished the con story-line! It’s smart, interesting and created a perfect pathway for the hero and heroine to fall in love. Audrey and Kaldar complemented each other, kept each other on their toes, and built a compatible relationship. They are very similar and so in tune with one another that working as a team was a dream. 

The kids, Jack and George, were great additions to this book. We get to see them grow up more. They added humor, heart, and made what was once a bunch of misfits, a team. They also added a great presence in this story that I thoroughly adored. 

If you’re a fan of urban fantasy romance, then make sure you check out The Edge series. We get a delightful adventure, slick hero’s, and happy endings.

  1. I love Ilona Andrews! I love this series! The Edge is one of those VERY rare series that I have a hard time picking a favorite installment from b/c I love them ALL. This one was great b/c I love a good heist/con story, and Fate's Edge certainly was. I don't know if you've read book 4 yet, but it's great too--wonderful ending to the series (IMO).

Critical Intelligence had some funny moments to I really enjoyed.  My favorite is the first quote the moment someone learns they are going to be a daddy I had to smile it reminded me of the day our son was born and how my hubby cried and passed out after he was born. ^_^  Check out my review here!



 " Nothing is wrong." Green smiled. "Well, not unless you consider being a father a bad thing."      "Being a father?"       "I'm going to be a ..." Darkness swallowed him whole as he passed out cold. ~ Critical Intelligence by Mandy M…
