Review: The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

This book is about 10 years too late for me. It reminded me a lot of Twilight, but I am well beyond the immortal-falls-instantly-in-love-with-a-human kind of romance. I forced myself to finish this book, but there was very little that I enjoyed.

X is a bounty hunter from hell who’s sent to Earth to bring back an evil soul. In the attempt he encounters Zoe and falls in love at first sight. He ignores his duty and rescues Zoe and her brother instead. The entanglement develops further as he begins to get ill for skipping out on his assignment.

The romance is the main plot of this book, but there is a subplot relating to the accidental death of Zoe’s father. I’ll admit that I did want to learn what happened there, so that was one reason to keep reading. Overall though this book was just too cheesy for me. I did not enjoy it.

If you’re into paranormal romance though, you may like this one a lot more than I did.

It's been a shattering year for seventeen-year-old Zoe, who's still reeling from her father's shockingly sudden death in a caving accident and her neighbors' mysterious disappearance from their own home. Then on a terrifying sub-zero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in a cabin in the woods--only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X.

X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from a hell called the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe's evil attacker and others like him. Forbidden to reveal himself to anyone other than his victims, X casts aside the Lowlands' rules for Zoe. As X and Zoe learn more about their different worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future. But escaping the Lowlands and the ties that bind X might mean the ultimate sacrifice for both of them.
