First Thought when Finished: Fate’s Edge was exciting, fun, and made me excited/sad that the next book is the last one.

Story Thoughts: Favorite one in the series so far! The action was spot-on. The story was intriguing. The characters brought their A game. The writing was fantastic. The romance was smexy. The smexy was blush inducing. This really sealed my new found love Ilona Andrews. This was just well crafted all around.

Character Thoughts: Audrey was my favorite leading female in the series so far. She was resourceful, smart, and a good person. I love Kal from before but he really brought his leading man “swagger” in Fate’s Edge. However, the main reason that I loved the characters: The Boys! Seriously if those two rascals don’t at least get some kind of “where are they now” book/novella/website shout out I will be disappointed.

Audio Thoughts:
Narrated By RenΓ©e Raudman / Length: 14 hrs and 18 mins
Renee does a great job with the narration of this series. I highly recommend these on audio. She brings it every time!

Final Thoughts: I am really looking forward to getting my hands on the last

  1. Those two little rascals!! They’re adorable. I’m hoping the writing team will do a spin-off series with those two guys all grown up. Because I love this series and sad to see it end.

  2. The review by Lisa on Hot Listnes of this audiobook made buy the series, and now your awesome review it’s really making me regret not having listened yet… OMG! Felicia so much to catch up with πŸ™
    Great job!

  3. Great review Felicia, but if I remember correctly, the brothers do play a big part in book 4. I really love this series, and yes, I could read a lot more books in this amazing world.

  4. I love this series. I agree, we should all beg and plead the Ilona Andrews team to write at least a novella on the boys. I could listen to Renee Raudman read the Yellow Pages. She is wonderful.

  5. I’ve never read Ilona Andrews, but that’s mostly because I don’t read a lot of PNR (unless it’s Molly Harper, because I need her humor and oh my stars, the audios are so good and I don’t know how someone can write steamy sex and laugh out loud humor, but she does). However, Kal sounds pretty scrumptious. Maybe I need to branch out a little more? πŸ˜‰

    • I would say these are more Urban Fantasy-ish! The romance is there since there is a couple per book BUT it is mostly action and great world building πŸ™‚ I like them (really like them) but I will say there are some typical Para troupes in it!
