I received this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: In a dark underground cell, Morgan Montgomery waits to die. A member of the Ikati, an ancient tribe of shape-shifters, Morgan stands convicted of treason. And Ikati law clearly spells out her fate: death to all who dare betray.
But there is a glimmer of hope. Thanks to her friendship with Jenna, the new queen of the Ikati, Morgan has one last chance to prove her loyalty. She must discover and infiltrate the headquarters of the Expurgari, the Ikati’s ancient enemy, so they can be destroyed once and for all. The catch? She has only a fortnight to complete her mission and will be accompanied by Xander Luna, the tribe’s most feared enforcer.
If Morgan fails, her life is forfeit. Because Xander is as lethal as he is loyal, and no one—not even this beautiful, passionate renegade—will distract him from his mission. But as the pair races across Europe into the heart of Italy, the attraction blooming between them becomes undeniable. Suddenly more than justice is at stake: so is love.
Thoughts: Shape-shifter Morgan Montgomery has been convicted of treason that comes with a penalty of death. Just before sentencing is announced, Queen Jenna gives her one last chance to redeem herself. Find her way into Expurgari (the Ikati's enemy) and kill them all. If she fails in this mission death awaits her. Morgan is sent on her way, but not alone. The very dangerous and very delectable Xander will be traveling with her. The temptation for the both of them will be great.
Edge of Oblivion was a good read. But it was quite different compared to the other shape-shifter stories I've read. To me the story felt more fantasy than paranormal. Ms. Geissinger does an amazing job with including rich detail. Morgan and Xander were the shining stars of the story even more than the mission. I enjoyed them quite a bit. Going into this book I didn't know much of the world and felt a bit lost because I hadn't read the first book, Shadow's Edge. If you have interest in reading this series, I highly recommend starting with book one.
Score: 3 Stars
