review: On the Edge - Ilona Andrews

On the Edge (The Edge, #1)On the Edge by Ilona Andrews
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Summary (thank you -

Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, 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). Only Edgers like Rose can easily travel from one world to the next, but they never truly belong in either.

Rose thought if she practiced her magic, she could build a better life for herself. But things didn’t turn out how she planned, and now she works a minimum wage, off the books job in the Broken just to survive. Then Declan Camarine, a blueblood noble straight out of the deepest part of the Weird, comes into her life, determined to have her (and her power).

But when a terrible danger invades the Edge from the Weird, a flood of creatures hungry for magic, Declan and Rose must work together to destroy them—or they’ll devour the Edge and everyone in it.

Review -

I liked this book. I liked the characters, the plot and the world development. Liked it. Didn't luurve it. For the most part, I liked Rose – but there were times when her stubbornness and predijuism towards bluebloods was unnerving. I thought Declan was awesome. I liked his nonchalant attitude and growing sense of humor. The little boys in the story were a hoot.

So, I liked the story. I didn't like the divide between worlds – the Edge, the Broken and the Weird. Kind of made the story too confusing and me not want to continue on in the series. Sorry. The love scenes between Rose and Declan are mighty good and so was their chemistry. This was a good quick read, but just didn't have enough to grab me into the rest of the series.
