I loved the first book in The Edge series but I didn’t like book 2 and 3 all that much. So I started this book without expectations. I figured only book 1 had been great. But I was pleasantly surprised when Steel’s Edge turned out to be wonderful.
From the first page, I loved Charlotte. She had been through so much and she had retained her dignity. She was strong and I emphasized with her over her troubles. Life’s not fair and the majority of people are self-serving, only interested in what they can get. Charlotte had to learn that painful lesson and she didn’t let it beat her down.
And Richard. OMG, I definitely had major crush on him. He was such a scarred, quiet man and when I envisioned him as a young Clint Eastwood, battered by life and trying to do the right thing. Plus, he was gorgeous. I absolutely adored him.
There was so much I loved about this story. The main characters and seeing the ones from the previous books—George, Jack and Sophie—the kids grown up and with their own troubled thoughts.
The scenes between Charlotte and Richard were meaningful and I loved the chemistry between them. As Ilona Andrews’ trademark, there were action-packed scenes, some filled with fun and awesomeness. There was one scene that was my favorite—when Richard finally told Charlotte how he felt about her. It was so funny and tugged at the heartstrings at the same time. Steel’s Edge was excellent.
