Steel's Edge Review

Steel's Edge
The Edge lies between worlds, on the border between the Broken, where people shop at Wal-Mart and magic is a fairy tale—and the Weird, where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny…

Charlotte de Ney is as noble as they come, a blueblood straight out of the Weird. But even though she possesses rare magical healing abilities, her life has brought her nothing but pain. After her marriage crumbles, she flees to the Edge to build a new home for herself. Until Richard Mar is brought to her for treatment, and Charlotte’s life is turned upside down once again.

Richard is a swordsman without peer, future head of his large and rambunctious Edger clan—and he’s on a clandestine quest to wipe out slavers trafficking humans in the Weird. So when his presence leads his very dangerous enemies to Charlotte, she vows to help Richard destroy them. The slavers’ operation, however, goes deeper than Richard knows, and even working together, Charlotte and Richard may not survive...

What I Loved
This is book 4 in the series. Each book contains its own new couple and story, but with an arcing storyline that connects them all. We still get to hear about past couples and I love this type of series.
I love every book in this series and this book didn't disappointment nor fall short of the rest of the series. Steel's Edge has a perfect amount of ass kicking action, great story line that continues with the rest of the books and a dose of romance that fits perfectly with the books fast pace action. 
Charlotte: I have always loved every single one of their female characters. They are always very strong female characters and that is my favorite type, no weak and whiny females for their books. While Charlotte may not be able to kick ass in a physical fight, she has some wicked power that no one should mess with.
Richard: Another awesome male character that kicks some major ass with the right amount of interior softness. 
Perfect amount of romance, not a lot, but these two are perfect for each other. The connection and chemistry they have together is fantastic. 

Didn't Like

An awesome series that needs to be read if you like urban fantasy, adventure and romance.

I love the Edge series, too. I can't wait until George, Jack and Sophie are old enough to (I hope) get their own stories.

The series is especially interesting to me in that it is a fantasy series that uses the chain-of-secondary-characters series model that paranormal romances do. I don't know if I can think of any other fantasy series that do.

P.S. Your daughter is beautiful. Hopefully, she'll start letting you sleep more soon. I used to do a lot of reading while I breastfed my kids--or at least number two and three. It took me a long time to get the hang of it enough that I could have one hand free with my oldest.

I use a bronze craft paint, and then hit it with a heavy green wash. So far, no one has complained and I've gotten a couple of compliments.
