As the fourth, and apparently final, book in Fantasy/Romance `The Edge' series, Steel's Edge takes a darker tone than the previous three books. The humour (and banter) that characterised the earlier stories is still there, but the main protagonists in Steel's Edge, Charlotte and Richard, are very damaged characters who are, essentially, on a quest to end a human trafficking network. As Richard's brother, Kaldar, puts it (to Richard) `you finally managed to find a woman as tragically noble as yourself'.
Giving plot details would be spoiling the fun, because this is a very engrossing book, albeit one that is best read after having read the earlier Edge books. In short, the husband and wife team, Ilona Andrews, have pulled off yet another great book: I think that it would be fair to say that I devoured it, rather than read it (and was sufficiently motivated to post my first Amazon review). If you are unfamiliar with their work, then you might start with having a look at some of the free fiction available on their blog (e.g. [...]), but I can fully recommend both the Edge Series (on the Edge, Bayou Moon, Fate's Edge and now Steel's Edge), as well as the Kate Daniels urban fantasy series that they are best known for (Magic Bites, Magic Burns, Magic Strikes, Magic Bleeds and Magic Slays). UK publishing issues mean that it has been difficult to get ebook versions of their books, but that is now changing.

This fourth book in the Edge series brings earlier stories together and resolves one of the story arcs begun in the second book, bringing back supporting characters in the first two books to be support characters in this one as well, in particular, Rose's Grandma and her brothers George and Jack from the first and third books, and Sophie from the second one, plus the antagonist, The Spider.

But the main characters are Richard, the Hunter, related to the Mar family of the second book, and Charlotte, a powerful healer elevated to Blue Blood status and brought up in The Weird.

To reacap: The Broken is our magic-free world, the Weird is where magic is an everyday occurrence, and the Edge is the buffer zone between the two where magic is reduced and life is hard.

Charlotte, having been dumped by her Blue Blood husband, gets away from the Weird and settles to life as a healer in the Edge (with Rose's grandmother from the first Edge book). He life is disrupted when Richard, fatally injured after a clash with a slaver gang, is dumped on her. Charlotte saves Richard, but the slavers wreak havoc and so she swears to put a stop to their activities. Teaming up with Richard she goes against all her training to use her healing magic to kill, knowing that she risks turning into an abomination - a plague-bringer and believing herself beyond redemption.

The slaver gangs are working for someone powerful and after striking against the heart the operation Richard and Charlotte are determined to go after the head, but corruption runs at the highest level and they have to return to Blue Blood society to carry out their plans.

Ilona Andrews could write a Dry Cleaners receipt & I'd buy it!! How does she come up with these worlds & these story lines?? I loved it. I'm still hooked on the Kate Daniels series but 'The Edge' books were a nice side dish to the main course.

Totally love this . Great end to the series Personal fave moment George 'Hallo Father' Contextually made shivers go up my spine.. Beautifully written with lovely prose, a flowing style that still manages to create tension and of course a wonderful acerbic humour all adds up to fine fine fine! Hope we have some novellas from this world, but really satisfying series that I am in the process of re-reading.

I really liked this book. it was a good one. Ilona and Richard Andrews did a great job! From reading the other edge books, especially the one from Kaldar's view, i would have never guessed that Richard was so graphic and awesome. I am not normally an action in a book girl but i loved the action scenes in this book, and there were lots of them. Both Richard and Charlotte kicked ass!

In short, the book is about two characters, Richard, previously known from book 2 and 3 of the edge series, and Charlotte, a new, wonderful delight. Charlotte is a noble blueblood in the Weird, whom just having got out of a traumatizing relationship, wants to escape the pity and pressure o her society, so she decided to go to the edge (as you do). She is also the greatest healer of her generation, and a fantastic heroine in my view, Being a hero isn't jut about being able to kick ass, it's also about being compassionate, and she is definitely that. She then meets Eleanor in the edge, and that's generally how she meet Richard. Richard, is a fighter, a strong manly fighter with a sword(!). He wants to right the errors of his past by ending the horror slave trade being clever, he decided he needs to chop the head off the snake, in layman terms, kill the head of the whole organisation.

What i really enjoyed about this book, is how despite its violence (believe me, its pretty dark and violent), it interweaves a brilliant plot as well, Richard and Charlotte are incredible characters who are smart, they use both their magical powers and elegance, grace and the secrets rules of society to achieve their goals.
