Everyone fears what hunts in the shadows—especially the monsters…

It takes a monster to hunt one, and Raine McCord, forged in the maelstrom of magic and science, is the one for the job. In a world where the supernatural shares a shadowy existence with the mundane, a series of disappearances and deaths threatens the secrecy of her kind and suggests someone knows the monsters are alive and kicking.

Partnering with the sexy and tantalizing Gavin Durand proves to be as challenging and dangerous as the prey she hunts. When the trail leads back to the foundation, which warped Raine's magic as a child, her torturous past raises its ugly head.

Gavin and Raine sift through a maze of lies, murder, and betrayal, to discover not only each other, but the emerging threat to them and the entire magical community.

SHADOW'S EDGE by Jami Grey will definitely keep you on the edge... of your seat, that is. This fantastic paranormal action novel is quite possibly the best book I've read this year. I could not put it down, and had to exercise serious self-control to keep from staying up all night to finish it. If you like anything even remotely categorized as paranormal or fantasy, do not miss out! You will love this book. It is definitely a keeper, and I highly recommend it to all.

SHADOW'S EDGE stars Raine McCord (part Fey, part Unknown). She and her Fey mother were subjected to scientific experiments when Raine was only 15 years-old. Her mother didn't make it out alive, but with the help of her maternal uncle, Raine escaped from the lab where she was being held. Still, even though she has escaped physically, years later, the effects of the twisted and brutal experimentation continue to haunt her. She has serious trust issues, beginning with a lack of trust in her own abilities, which are mostly unknown and untapped. She works for Taliesin Security, officially as a corporate and personal security officer, a convenient cover for her real job as a black ops agent, and she is tasked to eliminate threats to the Kyn community, which includes Fey, Demons, Witches/Wizards, and Shifters.

Trouble is brewing within the Kyn community. A wizard and a witch have disappeared after being approached by a human biogenetics company seeking, among other things, to create an anti-virus developed from Kyn DNA that will cure human maladies, such as cancer. There have also been inquiries into how Taliesin is organized and functions, and into the clandestine black ops Wraiths themselves. Raine is tasked to look into the disappearances and internal security breach with Gavin Durand, a Fey and every woman's dream man.

From the beginning, I was on the edge of my seat. The book picks you up and carries you away immediately. The characters and scenes are so well-written that I had no problem imagining the world in which Raine and Gavin live. The character development was flawless; the plot was unique and intriguing, and the dialogue was absolutely believable. The reader can actually feel the emotions of the characters, especially Raine's insecurities and fears, and the action is intense! This book could easily be a Hollywood blockbuster.

The only issue I had with the book was on the technical side. There were enough typos and grammatical issues to distract, and a couple places where the issues were a bit confusing. I would recommend another round of line editing. Even so, the reader can get past those issues and easily enjoy the book.

Seriously, I cannot wait to read the next book in the Kyn series, SHADOW'S SOUL. I haven't read a book this fascinating since A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. Love, love, love SHADOW'S EDGE, and will now happily start reading SHADOW'S SOUL.
