A beautiful, darkly satisfying jewel of a novel A continuation of the story of Zoe and X from The Edge of Everything , The Brink of Darkness takes us to grim and tortured places but it shines with emotion and surprises with lightning strikes of smart humor that can unexpectedly make you laugh out loud The story is a moving exploration of themes of love, family, friendship and redemption For the best experience, I recommend reading both books back to back I received an advance copy of this book i [...]
I made no secret of my love for Zoe and X and their between two worlds romance after reading The Edge of Everything and I couldn t wait to get my hands on this ARC Mwhahaha Welp It was phenomenal Ripper made a big showing in this book as do so many strong girls and women , which made me happy happy, but we also get to meet some new characters who are pretty kick ass and help to solidify X s story line I was enchanted, as always, with the unique depiction of hell and its inhabitants and rulers Th [...]
Humorous and original, THE BRINK OF DARKNESS is action packed with characters it is so easy to care about I really enjoyed the Lowlands It s such a unique setting a fascinating depiction of hell I m amazed at how the book can have such dark themes and scenes, while still being full of hope Reading Giles work is so effortless The pacing just sweeps you along, and this duology has some of the best dialogue I ve ever read I can t wait to see what Giles writes next
I loved reading the final chapters in X and Zoe s story What a vibrant, terrifying, and exhilarating ride If you missed The Edge of Everything, grab it now and read it before this eagerly awaited sequel arrives Though this series is unlike anything else out there, I highly recommend it for fans of Divergent and other high stakes fantasy worlds.
I like the coverI hate the fontand it s a cover change
I loved this book just as much as the first one I was immersed in their underworld and enjoyed their daring journey to escape.
Book 2 is everything Book 1 was but MORE More Zoe X, amazing secondary characters, high stakes action, danger, deep thematics, pithy dialogue, dark humor, and LOWLANDS The world creation is truly brilliant, like a delicious mash up of Dante s Inferno and a disturbing Hieronymus Bosch painting It made me stay up late, turn pages frantically and read exciting passages out loud What can you ask Highly recommend.
THE BRINK OF DARKNESS by Jeff Giles, the sequel to An Edge of Everything, narrates a trip through hell lightened with moments of humor and love Giles continues his tradition of strong women characters who fight injustice and battle for those they love, even if it means risking everything Whether they have superpowers or not, Zoe, Ripper, Sylvie, Maudlin dominate a story where you would have thought a soul hunter from the Lowlands would be the star The visual language gives a cinematic experience [...]
SINCE WHEN WAS THERE A SECOND BOOK I NEED IT NOW
I NEED THIS NOW The third of July is so far away.
I loved The Edge of Everything, and the second title did not disappoint The Brink of Darkness has everything I loved in the first book steamy Zoe X romance, fantastically hellish world building, captivating cast of secondary characters all written with Giles signature humor and nods to the YA canon Hoping for a third
