Janelle Reads and Writes

Lover of the written word! Join me as I discuss books, both my own and those I've read and loved.

The Edge of Darkness - Lissa Bilyk It seems like I’m on this streak of awesome Dystopian books, and this book is no exception. I loved it! The writing was simple, and I mean that in the most complimentary ways! I wasn’t bombarded with descriptions overflowing with analogies and metaphors. The writing was to the point, and didn’t need all the extra ‘fluff’. The story itself was interesting and unique. I liked the characters and was sympathetic towards them and their situation. The ending surprised me, I wasn’t expecting it, but in a good way. It’s nice when a book doesn’t actually end the way I think it will. The only reason why I rated it four, and not five stars, was that it was a bit short. I think if it was longer, it would have given me more time to connect even more with the characters. I would have also loved to see more happen between Max and Ethan. Maybe more build up to their romance, or a background story as to how they met. Yes, I’m a bit of a romantic at heart. I don’t normally write reviews, so I apologize for making this so short, but there you have it! I needed to do it for Lissa lol And just so you know, Lissa, your Ethan sounds just as hot as creepy Patch lol metal parts and all!

Amazing job love!
