Review: FATE'S EDGE

Fate's Edge by Ilona Andrews
Book 3 of The Edge Novels


About Fate's Edge:
Audrey Callahan left behind her life in the Edge, and she's determined to stay on the straight and narrow. But when her brother gets into hot water, the former thief takes on one last heist and finds herself matching wits with a jack of all trades...

Kaldar Mar - a gambler, lawyer, thief, and spy - expects his latest assignment tracking down a stolen item to be a piece of cake, until Audrey shows up. But when the item falls into the hands of a lethal criminal, Kaldar realizes that in order to finish the job, he's going to need Audrey's help...

Review:
This book for some reason did not "feel" as good as the last two books in this series. I think it might have been because I am not Kaldar's biggest fan. Secondly, I got spoilt with the wonderful quality of previous books, therefore I could have been unrealistically expecting too much and got disappointed. However, despite my high expectations and all, I still enjoyed this book very much! I finished it within a day and I'm not a quick reader so that is saying something. I think that shows us just how compelling the story telling quality is of this husband and wife dou author!

My favouritest part of this book however is that I got to revisit much-loved characters which I have missed in Book 2 because they didn't get to be mentioned a lot like they were in this book! But now I got to read about Jack, George and Gaston again! Yey!! Can't wait for the next book so that I could read more of them!!

Overall, I would rate this book as a 4 out of 5.

Empirical Evaluation:
Story telling quality = 5
Character development = 5
Story itself = 4
Ending = 4
World building = 5
Cover art = 3.5
Pace = 4

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5 cherries

Always a bummer when a book doesn't live up. But I'm with you, it's nice to visit beloved characters.

Oh no :( I felt book 2 was not as good so what will I feel about this one then?
