Edge #3: Fate's Edge by Ilona Andrews
Edge #3: Fate's Edge

Don't know how good it is or isn't, haven't read it yet, but you've screwed up AGAIN. Does anyone doublecheck these descriptions before posting? The first synopsis you have listed is for Andrews 'Gunmetal Magic', not Fate's Edge. I'm assuming the second one is the correct synopsis.

You have the wrong synopsis on this book. This one has Menolly on the cover and as the narrator, not Delilah. The storyline you have listed was the like four books ago. Please fix it.

You really need to renumber these books to show that Disappearing Nightly, the REAL first book in this series has been reissued, which makes this #4. The others make far more sense if you read the first one.

Who the hell is John Scalzi? Because this book was written by H Beam Piper 50 years ago!

Sliding Beneath the Surface [The St. Augustine Trilogy: Book I] by Doug Dillon
Sliding Beneath the Surface [The St. Augustine Trilogy: Book I]

Sandra K, November 7, 2012

First and foremost, this book is mis-categorized as 'Children-scary stories'. It is far too involved and complicated for 98% of children to get. 'Young Adult' or even 'Teens' would be much more accurate. That said...

I rarely pick up the first book in what are advertised as trilogies because I am not a patient person. When they are good, I want them all NOW. I guess I'm just greedy that way. However, I was offered an opportunity to read this by Mr Dillon and I jumped on it. I'm so glad I did (well, except for my lack of patience). I really enjoyed this book. I have always liked historical fiction that doesn't play fast and loose with history (Spats between Napoleon and Josephine? No thank you, you weren't there.), and this book doesn't do that. It adheres closely to what really happened, albeit with the necessary introduction of fictional characters able to tell the story from outside history itself. It also explores an area of American History that is not very well known, and does it in a way that will hold the interest of even those who aren't attracted for the history side. It has a paranormal/urban fantasy-ish side as well, which I also enjoy. How ever else would a modern character tell a historical story with accuracy? lol.

So now I wait impatiently for the next book, which I am sure will be worth the wait. Read this one. If you're a 'grown up', don't let the YA designation put you off. It is well worth a read.
