Genre: Urban Fantasy, Paranormal RomanceSynopsis:
In a dark underground cell, Morgan Montgomery waits to die. A member of the Ikati, an ancient tribe of shape-shifters, Morgan stands convicted of treason. And Ikati law clearly spells out her fate: death to all who dare betray. But there is a glimmer of hope. Thanks to her friendship with Jenna, the new queen of the Ikati, Morgan has one last chance to prove her loyalty. She must discover and infiltrate the headquarters of the Expurgari, the Ikati’s ancient enemy, so they can be destroyed once and for all. The catch? She has only a fortnight to complete her mission and will be accompanied by Xander Luna, the tribe's most feared enforcer. If Morgan fails, her life is forfeit. Because Xander is as lethal as he is loyal, and no one—not even this beautiful, passionate renegade—will distract him from his mission. But as the pair races across Europe into the heart of Italy, the attraction blooming between them becomes undeniable. Suddenly more than justice is at stake: so is love. Sensual, thrilling, and action-packed, Edge of Oblivion will enthrall readers with nail-biting suspense and heart-pounding passion.
What a fantastic read! J.T Geissinger has stepped it up for Paranormal Romance and UF. Book one (Shadow's Edge) was hit for me, I never thought it could get better. It did. J.T has taken us deeper into the world of the Ikati and things are more messed up than you'd think.
I loved the prologue. It was quick and interesting. The last sentence is my favorite part, "And though we have learned to live alongside you, thought we have learned to survive, though we may smile and nod as we pass you in the street, we are always, always ready to eat out your heart.
The characters, Morgan and Xander were exciting. They felt real and deep, an all round awesome pair. Their light banter was fun, there sex was steamy and their I hope to see them again in the next novel. (Which I hope will be announced very soon!?)
Over all, this story was choice! Look out for J.T Geissinger, I think she'll be a big hit to any J.R Ward fans! I can't wait for more. I do believe(I'm just guessing) the next novel will be featuring Eliana and Demetrius(D)?
Check out my review of book one, Shadow's Edge.
