Synopsis (Goodreads):
In the year since her life was torn apart, Kit Colbana has slowly rebuilt herself. There’s a promise of hope in the relationship with the alpha of the local shapeshifters and she no longer comes screaming into wakefulness. Life’s not perfect but then again, when was it ever?

When her best friend Justin comes to her for help, there’s little question as to what her answer will be. Witches are disappearing and Justin won’t rest until he has answers. Soon, they learn that it’s not just witches who’ve gone missing, but vampires and shifters, too.

Unlikely alliances are forged as Kit and Justin found themselves drawn into a twisted web of lies and betrayal. As the clock counts down and the culprit behind recent disappearances is revealed, those Kit loves the most become the target of somebody who will kill to protect an ugly secret.
Thoughts on Edged Blade: You know when something is painful to watch, but you do it anyway and you know it's needed, but you HURT for the person all the same. That's pretty much how I felt at the beginning of this book. The events in book 2 shattered Kit and it was a slow, heartbreaking journey in book 3 as she put herself back together and learned to trust again. Now she's ready to move forward, but those around her are trying SO HARD not to hurt her it's almost holding her back.

*sniffles a little at Damon's fears and his obvious love for his mate*

I LOVED that Kit was the one to push. Where book 3 had her friends pushing her to draw her back into the world, she's the one putting herself out there now. She's the one asking for more. She's the one ready to move forward. That she was able to interact with vampires without going into a panic attack said a lot about how far she's come.

As painful as what was done to her was, I'm thoroughly enjoying watching her pick up the pieces and see that she's far stronger than she ever thought she was.

As for the case she dives into in this book, the answers Kit finds only pose more questions. There's a lot of world out there and plenty of terrible people (human and non-human alike) are skulking about waiting to pounce.

I'm seriously tempted to go back to the beginning and have my heart ripped out all over again (not literally!) because these books make me feel SO MANY THINGS. *slow thumbs up*
