The Brink of Darkness (The Edge of Everything #2) Reviews
THE BRINK OF DARKNESS by Jeff Giles, the sequel to An Edge of Everything, narrates a trip through hell lightened with moments of humor and love. Giles continues his tradition of strong women characters who fight injustice and battle for those they love, even if it means risking everything. Whether they have superpowers or not, Zoe, Ripper, Sylvie, Maudlin dominate a story where you would have thought a soul-hunter from the Lowlands would be the star. The visual language gives a cinematic experie ...more
True Rating 3.5 stars!
The Brink of Darkness is the second book of the duology series, The Edge of Everything. I truly enjoyed reading the first book in this series and was waiting with baited breath for the second book to come out, I just had to know what had happened to X after he was taken from Zoe. I definitely fell in love with X in the first book, not the swoon kind of love but more like how you love a goofy puppy. He was sweet and adorably awkward and I was gutted at the end of book one.

If there is such thing as a perfect ending to a series you wish would never end, this was it. I had forgotten how much I loved Giles’s characters. Zoe, X, Ripper, Dallas, Val…and some new ones: Plum, Maud, and my favorite, The Ukrainian. This book is empowering, dark, thrilling, and hilarious. Rarely do books make me laugh out loud, repeatedly, like his do. I'm sad to say goodbye, but it was an amazing ride and The Brink of Darkness is the perfect sendoff.

I got sent this book in exchange for a honest review, all my opinions are my own and thank you so much to the publishers for sending me this book!
So I read the first installment last year when it came out and I liked it. I didn't love it but I really enjoyed the plot.
This is set a short period of time after the events of the first novel following the love story of X and Zoe.
When it comes to plot, the first book was much more action packed. ...more
SINCE WHEN WAS THERE A SECOND BOOK. I NEED IT NOW
DNF @ 21%
I think I just lost interest for this series, but this is not a bad book in any sense at all, hence why I have not rated it with any stars. I just don’t think that reading this right now is worth my time.
Thank you to NetGalley for providing me with the e-ARC.
A beautiful, darkly satisfying jewel of a novel. A continuation of the story of Zoe and X from "The Edge of Everything", "The Brink of Darkness" takes us to grim and tortured places... but it shines with emotion and surprises with lightning-strikes of smart humor that can unexpectedly make you laugh out loud. The story is a moving exploration of themes of love, family, friendship and redemption. For the best experience, I recommend reading both books back-to-back!

The Brink of Darkness is the sequel to the amazing and thrilling The Edge of Everything. As divine as it is horrid, as funny as it is touching and sad, as sweet as it is rough around the edges, The Brink of Darkness is a stunningly crafted - wild, thrilling and beautiful.
The Brink of Darkness continues the story of Zoe, a young human teenager whose life has been thrown into chaos after meeting X, a boy raised in the Lowlands, the only living person amongst thousands of damned souls. In ...more
