The Brink of Darkness Reviews
Book 2 is everything Book 1 was but MORE. More Zoe & X, more amazing secondary characters, more high stakes action, more danger, more deep thematics, more pithy dialogue, more dark humor, and more 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 more can you ask?! Highly recommend.
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 had read the first book in this series and couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one.
I love love love Zoe and X. She’s smart and sassy and he’s just so good and loyal. Together they are adorable and it sweet to see them react to each other. Of course Val and Dallas are fun and I could have had a million more scenes with Ripper and it wouldn’t have been enough. There are a few new characters who were fantastic, but I’ll let you find those.
Plot wise, it was not at all what I expected. I was ca ...more

I was one of those lucky dogs who received an ARC of The Edge of Darkness, the first book in this duology, and I absolutely fell in love with the characters, the story, the crackling wit and, best of all, the dialogue. This final book, The Brink of Darkness, is just as engaging, funny, sweet, sad, and cry-yourself-ugly as the first. Seriously, my eyes were swollen and my nose was running by the final page.
It's that good.

Just like the first book, I could hardly set this book down! Excellent world building, characters, plot, it is just everything I love in a book! Enough dark twistedness with a uniquely imaginative world that is traversed by loveable characters be they main characters or side characters and an epic romance that had me sitting on the edge of my seat until the very end!
