Review: Fate's Edge by Ilona Andrews

Fate's Edge (The Edge #3) by Ilona Andrews
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Audrey Callahan left behind her life in the Edge, and she's determined to stay on the straight and narrow. But when her brother gets into hot water, the former thief takes on one last heist and finds herself matching wits with a jack of all trades...

Kaldar Mar-a gambler, lawyer, thief, and spy-expects his latest assignment tracking down a stolen item to be a piece of cake, until Audrey shows up. But when the item falls into the hands of a lethal criminal, Kaldar realizes that in order to finish the job, he's going to need Audrey's help...
My Thoughts: Life in the Edge might be tough and as hand to mouth as it gets, but MY GAWD it's fun to read about. I like dipping into the three worlds we've been given. They're all so deliciously different. I LOVE the characters. They all have their special brand of crazy that just makes them irresistible to me.

Audrey and Kaldar were freaking awesome. He's a flirt and a conman, she's determined to stay as far away from him as possible because once a conman, always a conman. She doesn't trust him to be faithful and she knows that it would be too easy to lose her heart to his charming ways. Her story kind of killed me, btw. I wanted to throttle her father and punch her brother in the junk. Her dad... just, uggh. Terrible, awful man.

The bad guys are respectably bad. More than, really. They're really, really bad. They like to hurt people because they can. They're the type of crazy you run from when you see it coming. The Mars (and their respective others - I'm looking at you, William) are crazy in an entirely different sort of way. They're willing to do anything - kill, maim, destroy - to keep their family safe, but they have a code of honor. The bad guys? Not so much.

The banter is witty, the characters are feral and lovable, and the action takes you from the Weird to the Edge to the Broken and back again. This was one book I was sorry to finish. I want more.
