The Edge of Everything
by Jeff Giles
It’s been a shattering year for seventeen-year-old Zoe, who’s still reeling from her father’s shockingly sudden death in a caving accident and her neighbors’ mysterious disappearance from their own home. Then on a terrifying sub-zero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in a cabin in the woods–only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X.
X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from a hell called the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe’s evil attacker and others like him. Forbidden to reveal himself to anyone other than his victims, X casts aside the Lowlands’ rules for Zoe. As X and Zoe learn more about their different worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future. But escaping the Lowlands and the ties that bind X might mean the ultimate sacrifice for both of them.
My Review (So far)
Only 3 chapters in and I’m hooked.
You know that a book is great when you are at the dentist’s office and you get so in to the book that you forget you’re there. Is that good, because I extremely hate going to the dentist and I get anxious when I’m there. And I got sooo lost in it that I didn’t even notice how long I was waiting. (I got there at 9:am and got out at 12:pm)
Anyways the book is not all perfect. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical when I read the first couple of pages. But then It got kind of addicting. I enjoy the writing and the tension building (OMG) it was just great. I’m obsess with it, so I bought it and will probably finish it soon. I’ll let you know If it kept going as good as it started.
This book’s first couple of chapters (3) where given to me by Bloomsbury USA Children’s Books in exchange of an honest review.
