The only thing that gave this book a modicum of interest is the narrator. Otherwise it is the schizophrenic ramblings of a lady.

The Edge lies between worlds, on the border between the Broken, where people shop at Wal-Mart and magic is a fairy tale—and the Weird, where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny…Charlotte de Ney is as noble as they come, a blueblood straight out of the Weird. But even though she possesses rare magical healing abilities, her life has brought her nothing but pain.

Only the second book, by Michele Grant was worth listening to. The 3rd book was crap, I will never look for a book by Cydney Rax. This book was so negative, with cant get right men. Who wants to keep being reminded of that crap. This book does not take you away from the bull crap that is life. People read romances to be happy, not pissed off.
The narration was NOT GOOD, it did not flow, and had too many long pauses uuuugghh.

We all have someone who crossed our path and fundamentally changed us. That one person who blew through our lives, their presence forever stamped on our psyche. They linger in our thoughts, in our hearts, and in the decisions we make. A soul crusher or a dream maker, depending on the perspective. My person is Mister Black.
