I love love love Zoe and X. She’s smart and sassy and he’s just so good and loyal. Together they are adorable and it sweet to see them react to each other. Of course Val and Dallas are fun and I could have had a million more scenes with Ripper and it wouldn’t have been enough. There are a few new characters who were fantastic, but I’ll let you find those.
Plot wise, it was not at all what I expected. I was ca ...more
I had been anticipating The Brink of Darkness by Jeff Giles since I finished The Edge of Everything, and this instalment is definitely more X-centric. I enjoyed the setting and the main characters, but I was disappointed with the slow pacing. The book was still enjoyable, however, I wish I could have enjoyed it as much as I had been hoping.

The Edge of Everything - ⭐⭐⭐
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

The Edge of Everything series continues where we left off… X, the bounty hunter 17-year-old Zoe fell in love with, has given up his freedom and returned to the Lowlands in order to save Zoe and her family. Stripped of his powers, X is determined to break the lords’ hold on him and learn about his past. Those secrets could be the key to reuniting X and Zoe… or they could mean the destruction of everything they have been fighting for.

OMG I LOVED IT. MY HEART IS SO FULL AND HAPPY.
The Brink of Darkness takes a nightmarish hell that nevertheless manages to warm the heart and thrill the soul. A fantastic sequel, this book brings X's tale to new heights that will have you riveted to your seat, biting your nails in anticipation, and hugging the book tightly to your chest with a sweet sigh when finished. Beautifully shared, humor, charm, and horror bleed through these pages as an innocent bounty hunte ...more
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.
"I want it far too much to believe it."
Um yeah this is amazing. Just as charming and mysterious and imaginative and romantic and creepy as the first book, with possibly MORE laughs, heart, and witty dialogue than the first. (The Russian! omg.) The lovely, lovely sentiments of finding humanity in broken people and in pits of despair, and people overcoming their darkness is just so...healing. A good book for our times.
This is going on a treasured ...more
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
A solid 3.5/5 stars for The Brink of Darkness. I genuinely liked this book, and had a fantastic time reading it. It was a quick read and the storyline was great! I did have a few minor issues with it, but for me it didn't take away from the story that much. The Brink of Darkness picks up pretty much right where The Edge of Everything leaves off, so we aren't left wondering too long about our main characters ...more
X and Zoe live worlds apart. That is not an exaggeration. X is a prisoner of the Lowlands for the rest of his existence. Zoe lives a normal life in Montana. But neither of them is happy as long as they aren't together. And this time, X has a plan. And it is not a very solid one.
Having been born in the equivalent of what we call hell to a dead mother and a living father, must find a way out of ther ...more

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. T ...more
What a great book and end to a story! It appears to be a duology. It wrapped up nicely though it left me wanting more!! I loved how this book explored the Lowlands and X! Zoe is a wonderful character who keeps growing. It's a great read for those in high school! Some mild language and violence!
Zoe is 17 and in high school so that limits where the story can go. I would have liked a epilogue set 5 or more years in the future! ...more
I think we don't talk enough about Jeff Giles' humor--maybe because of the riveting plot and fully-dimensional characters. But TBOD is as funny as it is exciting and feels-inducing. I would follow these characters to hell.
When I first picked up this book, I actually had no idea it was a sequel! Oops! And by the time I was about 20% in, I was so hooked that I knew I immediately had to go and purchase the first book so that I could read that too! Although I don't recommend reading books out of order, having done so with this has given me an interesting perspective. Mainly that it is possible to enjoy this book without having read the first one. Obviously you might miss some inside jokes and backsto ...more
