    Do you guys remember that scene out of Beauty and the Beast when the Beast asks Cogsworth and Lumiere what present he could get for Belle?Then Cogsworth says:"Oh, the usual: Chocolates, gifts, promises you don't intend to keep"Then Cogsworth and Lumiere make out and the Beast starts feeling really awkward?Somehow I just KNEW you could find kinky cogsworth shit on the internet if you just looked hard enough! Well, sometimes reading UF/PNR is a little bit like that. Most authors think they can han [...]

    [January 2016]► Buddy reread with the Awesome IA Army Of Utter Awesomeness (aka the eye candy IA Addicts) starting Jan 19, 2016.» And the moral of this reread is: why do I even bother reading books NOT written by Ilona Andrews? WHY? Because I'm an idiot, that's why.» And the other moral of this reread is: if I hadn't already sold my soul to the Andrews, I would do it again. Hey, maybe I could sell them a few body parts, I'm pretty sure they'd like that.» And the other, other moral of this r [...]

    If I were the kind of person who DNFs books rather easily, and If I hadn't been a huge fan of the Andrews' Kate Daniels series, I would have given up on this one after Declan showed up.He kind of pops up on her property and threatens to steal her away to be his woman.For me to even attempt to like a story with forced marriage (or whatever he had in mind), it has to be set waaaaaaaaaay back in medieval times. But since I trusted the authors, I decided to keep reading.And I'm glad I did.Don't worr [...]

    Yes, I am reading this again.Yes, I just read this like 6 months ago.No, I am not sorry half star bump up to a solid 4 stars.How do you make a book you enjoyed the first time you read it even better?Easy, find a group of friends to read it with all over again. Thanks to my fellow IA lovers I'd include all your names in this review but there were about 20 of us at Ilona Andrews Addicts (IAA) for making this one of my funnest rereads of a book (The other being Burn For Me)I have had to date.Rose: [...]

    *TRIGGER WARNING: THERE IS A LOT OF DISCUSSION ABOUT RAPE CULTURE IN THE COMMENT SECTION OF THIS REVIEW*DNF @ 70%I just can't be arsed. Life is too short to continue to read a book I don't like. Bullet list of complaints: - Rape culture- A misogynistic pseudo-alpha douche of a male lead- A spineless doormat of a female lead- A complete lack of believable chemistry between them- Rape culture- Shoddy world building- The aggressive reinforcement of traditional gender roles- The devaluing of a woman [...]

I loved this book and I remembered so little of it that it was like I was reading it for the first time.***********************************************Oh my god!

    $2.99 Kindle sale as of Sept. 22, 2017. If you like Ilona Andrews' brand of romance-driven urban fantasy, grab this one! 4.5 stars. Rose and her two little brothers, George and Jack, ages 10 and 8, live in the Edge, a sort of halfway place between our world (which they call the Broken, since magic doesn't work there) and a parallel world called the Weird, where magical powers reign. In the Edge, magic works, but not as well as in the Weird. Most people can't pass through from one world to the ot [...]

    Ilona Andrews officially made it to my favorite authors list. WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO READ HER (THEIR) BOOOKSSS!! maybe the hideous covers.

    Felicia
    I love this author, and for me this was a 4 star UF and a 5 star romance. WAY MORE ROMANCEY than the Kate Daniels, which is cool, just know that going in (but with the crazy-model-photoshop man on the cover, how could you NOT know that? And BTW, guys in real life look terrible with that haircut.) Get past the slightly confusing first chapter and this book is really great, when you get the "deal" with the world it gets better and better, like a stone rolling downhill. I stayed up way too late to [...]

    Ilona Andrews (writing team of Ilona and Gordon) caught and kept my interest when I read Magic Bites. I liked the distinctive voice I saw in that story, one that has stayed true in the subsequent stories that I have read by this team. With On the Edge, they have continued that excellence, providing me with a novel that is multi-faceted, genre-wise and story-wise. Although I grew up in the Midwest, my roots are Southern, and I do appreciate books set in the South that show the real ways of Southe [...]

    *** 4.40 ***A buddy read with my friends at the Ilona Andrews AddictsI have come to realize that I take IA's writing for granted. It happens like that. You read enough works from a favorite author and you develop an expectation, a knowledge that once you delve into the pages of their books, nothing could possibly go wrong.It had been a while since I read a work by the Gordons and I had forgotten about the pure, natural immersion in the world of magic they allow their readers. You are 20% in and [...]

    2016 January Re-read: Buddy read with IAA.When I first read this book, it was my very first foray into Ilona Andrews' work. I loved it, dearly, but I did have issues with it - some that I was reminded of on this re-read. Does Declan have a reason for his actions? Sure. But they still suck. Does he make it right in the end? Yup. But some of the things said prior to then, I'm left wondering if they were part of the 'act' or just his real thoughts. I still dunno. I like Declan. I love Rose. And Geo [...]

    Dear God, please protect me from the wrath of the Ilona Andrews fans who might read this review. I'm sure I just read it wrong. Hey, I'm a huge fan! But this book did not work for me. I wanted to love it. I just could not connect with Rose or Declan. Their romance was INSUFFERABLE. Horrible. I disliked them both. I get the motivation for why Rose acted like she did toward him, but that didn't make it any easier to read.It takes "slow burn" romance to another level entirely. Like glacial melt rom [...]

    Warning: This will be pretty much a fangirling review. "On the Edge" is a traditional Ilona Andrews highball. It is fresh, with sweet and bitter flavours in the right proportions, guaranteed to make you feel hot despite all the ice. :)Hanging out on the Edge - a world between an ordinary and a magic world-was an undeniable romp. All the usual ingredients are presented, but served so well that you simply don't mind predictability, clichés or the incomplete world-building. You just quaff it all a [...]

    I love Kate Daniels. Ilona Andrews knows how to write female characters with strong personalities and snarky humor - a winning combination in my eyes.I love sarcastic girls!This story is about Rose. She lives in a place called the Edge, which is in a land that sits between the two main lands in this world. One is magical, called the Weird, and the other is non-magical and like our modern world, called the Broken. The Edge is in-between and the people have some magic. It's also like the back wood [...]

    Honestly, this book probably has one of the most unique worlds I've come across in a long time. The character development is fantastic and the way the point of views shift really adds something to the overall story. I enjoyed this book a lot more than Magic Bites and I'm definitely going to continue with this series!Rose was stubborn and ornery most of the book but for once she's a character that has legitimate reasons. Declan is a fascinating character with more sides to him than first appear. [...]

    ★★★★★ Wow! Adored this book! It grabbed me and wouldn’t let go. I am actually reading it for the second time. I mean in a row! Amazing. IA has created a captivating world here – well three, actually: The Broken, The Weird, and The Edge – as well as characters that leap off the page and into a delicious plot and back-story. I’ll admit I was confused at first; Urban Fantasy is not my strong suit. However, I have never had this kind of dilemma before: since I wanted some clarifica [...]

    Buddy Read with the fabulous Ilona Andrews Addicts Group!Discussion ThreadThis review can also be found at Carole's Random Life.4 Stars!When a group of friends on decided to read this book together, I knew that I had to join in on the fun. I am a huge fan of Ilona Andrews. I read this book a couple of years ago and enjoyed but but for some reason never picked up the rest of the books in the series. This seemed like a perfect opportunity to refresh my memory of this book and jump into the rest o [...]

    IA knows how to do it so one should wonder, why is it that I haven't read this series yet?So, as a Kate Daniels fangirl, my brain was annoying me comparing the first books of both series (and just the first because nothing compares to KD awesomeness) and thinking:✎ When it comes to world building, Kate Daniels wins the prize.✎ But when it comes to characters and their dynamics, The Edge takes it home. Oh, come on, don't gasp. Curran/Kate is awesome in the next installments but can we talk a [...]

    "Go brush your teeth, comb your hair, put on dry clothes, and get the guns. We're going to Wal-Mart.” After living the Kate Daniels series (of course), being charmed by the Innkeeper series, and falling head over heels for Burn for Me, I was in a mood for another Ilona Andrews series. Unfortunately On the Edge didn't win as much loyalty.Cue a unique magic world, which seems to the be the author's specialty - different areas of magic that shift if you leave them, and value measured by "white li [...]

    Buddy Read with Ilona Andrews Addicts (IAA)! “You are the measure of my wrath.”Okay, first I need to address the elephant in the room! I originally wanted to read these books, because while reading Sweep in Peace my friends kept telling me about the crossover of characters from this book. No big deal, I marked it in my notes and figured I'd read this series eventually. Then, at the perfect time Ilona Andrews Addicts (IAA) decided to do a buddy read! So I'm reading this, and completely loving [...]

    ⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱*Might contain spoilers*⋰⋱⋰⋱⋰⋱Re-read: 05.05.2017Shockingly, I found myself not liking this book the second time around. I couldn't feel Rose and Declan attractions, their connection. I found the book dragged out, boring and I was annoyed with myself for starting the re-read, but I refused to give up. So I finished it, and now I'm kinda pissed. I really need to learn to leave books that I enjoyed before alone. This isn't the first time this has happened to me :/“Y [...]

    A few weeks ago I finally started the Kate Daniels series and when I finished it I was left wondering what to do with my life. Thankfully my lovely wife Sarah recommened I continue with the IA theme and read The Edge. I'm amazed at the ability of IA to create new and exciting worlds. This series is no exception and I fell in love with the edge from the start. It's a really weird place between worlds. On one side you have our world with it's distinct lack of magic (and called the Broken as a resu [...]

    This was very different from the Kate Daniels series. Different in a good way. I love Ilona Andrews’ imaginative world building. The Edge is a world sandwiched between our world known as The Broken because no magic works and The Weird a place where the blueblood magical aristocrats live. The Weird is like a parallel universe to our world. The people that inhabit The Edge are an eccentric collection of characters with some magical powers. The Edge is not the safest place to live and in this sto [...]

    Maria V. Snyder
    Loved it!! The main character is my favorite type of character - a strong willed, stubborn, protective and smart lady named Rose, the main guy character is also my favorite - strong, silent, and a mystery. The fantasy world and magic system is very unique and utterly fascinating - I enjoyed every bit of this book. The beginning is a little heavy on the world building details and backstory - and it took me a while to get used to the reader since I had just listened to another audio book and it's [...]

    NEVER JUDGE AN ILONA ANDREWS BOOK BY ITS COVER. Pretty sure this wins the ugliest cover contest, and some of them are pretty awful!The narrator was inconsistent with Declan's voice and accent. She did a great job with Mad Rogan, so maybe she was just not in the zone yet. Declan was kind of a meh alpha character compared to other Ilona Andrews males, so maybe that was part of it too. Rose, Georgie, and Jack make this story, along with a good supporting cast. Awesome world building and humor, even [...]

    ☆☆☆ No spoilers and colorful language abound! I have something to admit. I have been refusing to read this book based on it's cover. I know I know, I mean look at all their covers I know they still contain magic but this one, I just couldn't get past. Then all my friends started reading it and decided I'd take the jump too.Then I loved it. I mean seriously, LOVED IT. A cat boy and another who raised his crazy dead grandpa who eats dog brains all before page five? A place called the Weird a [...]

    On the Edge was a unique gem from the amazing husband and wife writing team, Ilona Andrews. If you’re looking for a strong female character, clever banter, and romance that builds to a slow burn, look no further. Their Kate Daniels series won me over as a fan, and this story only increased my love of their writing. Rose lives in the Edge, a world in between the Broken: our normal world, and the Weird: a world where magic dominates. She lives with her two younger brothers, having to take over t [...]

    Re-read January 2015. I'm reminded once again, as if I needed it, why I love Ilona Andrews.Original review cross-posted from here. Buddy read with my friends at IAA.The world here that Ilona Andrews created is a fascinating place. Not quite our world, not quite a fantasy world, it's vivid, captivating place filled with captivating characters. I was absolutely immersed in the Edge, and loved every moment that I spent there.Rose was a fascinating character. She's had the rose-colored glasses, pard [...]
