Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Walmart, 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.

    " The author's website says that they have trouble classifying this book. It seems obvious to me. It was the perfect mix of historical romance and urban fantasy. It has every feature of the romances: she's a stubborn and smart commoner, has a big problem that's kept her from having a satisfying life, he's a tough warrior and rake from a noble family with a weakness for mouthy women who can back up their threats with action, there are many humorous misunderstandings that gradually lead them closer together, etc. The three major elements of romance novels, his arrival into her life solving her problem, them falling in love within days, and him happening to be rich although she's not the kind of woman who'd make that a priority, are all in place. It just happens to all take place in the modern era and weave in and out of our world and one closly connected to it. So the hoop skirts are blue jeans and the marketplace is Wal-mart. Add a whomping dose of magic and it's Paranormal Romance at its best. This theory is supported by the next book being about one of the supporting characters in this book, our hero's troubled best friend, in another location with another woman. Romance series have a loose through story with one completed romance in each book, often featuring siblings or dear friends in subsequent novels. Good luck, William, I think the force will be with you. So as for the story in this book, it was very entertaining. Declan was a little cookie cutter. There wasn't anything not to like about him, especially once his true motives for making a bet/contract with Rose were explained. Rose is very likable, if overly mature for her age, but that's part of the point. Her little brothers are adorable, the best kid characters I've seen in a long time. The evil is gross and despicable. All of the elements are in place and Andrews is a good writer and makes it all work. It's an enjoyable story and book, even if it doesn't yet have the depth of her Kate Daniels books. For one thing, it doesn't have to, it's a different style and will appeal to a somewhat different but overlapping audience. In addition, we only got hints of the Weird and I suspect that will be further developed in later books. I like that it's a sophisticated world. No electricity doesn't mean primative. They have the equivalent to movies, horseless carriages, modern plumbing, etc. But a totally different political structure and historical development from our world, The Broken. I look forward to seeing more about that. And hopefully Rose's little brothers, I'll miss them. "

    " I don't know why I waited so long to read it. I loved it! Magic, danger & romance. How can that go wrong? "

    " P.S. Kate Daniels is still my favorite "

    " I liked this one.... Rose was definitely a kick ass heroine! I loved that she could stand on her own feet and didn't just turn into a helpless bimbo when Declamation showed up. LOVED Jack and Georgie. it was refreshing to see how kids deal with supernatural abilities as you don't see that very often in these books unless you are reading YA. Will definitely continue on in the series! "
