Steel's Edge

Steel's Edge (The Edge, #4)

Steel's Edge is the last book of The Edge series by Ilona Andrews.

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 presences 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...

The Breakdown:

1. Charlotte and Richard are a very well balanced couple.  His dark to her light, not that Richard didn't have any light or Charlotte any dark.  They just worked so well as a couple, both understanding love is not always an easy thing.

2. Loved Richard's devotion Sophie, it is so heart warming. He wants so badly to save her from her demons but doesn't know how and still tries anyway.

3. Liked that while this a fantasy novel, you see how the abomination of slaving can translate to the real world, and those running may not look like monsters on the outside.

4. Liked how George, Jack, and Sophie all made into this book, and Andrews continues to show how they have changed and the adults that they are slowly becoming.

5. A little disappointed that this is the end of the series, because I still want to know more.  I felt that Andrews left a few loose ends that I would love to see tied up.
