If Sasha thought life would slow down after being captured, she was dead wrong.
Having an extremely high level of magic, but not knowing how to use it, has become more than a little problematic. Struggling to get her power under control has everyone on their toes, waiting for something to blow up. And then there is the issue of loving Stefan, but not being able to mate him because she hadn't a clue how to lead, which is necessary if she wants to rule by his side.
No, things have not gotten any easier.
With the incoming visit of the Regional and his white mage, the pressure turns way up for both Sasha and Stefan. So many issues are riding on the balance, and one word from the authoritative pair could have Sasha back in her old life, still in danger, and without the resources to carry on.
Sasha has to learn to battle while walking on a razor's edge.
'He looked down at himself and patted his stomach, his face pale. “That was incredibly painful. I am intrigued. How is this possible?”'
'I hammered down the hallway, burst through two doors, straight armed a naked dude advancing on a waiting woman wearing a blindfold, and catapulted into the correct corridor.'
On a Razor's Edge is the third book in Breene's Darkness series. I just want to point out that this one is as hilarious as the last two. I think On a Razor's Edge is my favorite so far. We meet quite a few new character's in this one. The Regional has come, and he's brought his own Mage. He also has plans, from the top, that Stefan isn't very enthused about. Sasha also has to take on the task of trying to learn to lead.
I'm going to start with familiar character's. I love Sasha and Stefan, these two are fantastic together. They have a connection that is soul deep. They are perfect for each other. Sasha makes Stefan laugh with her quirks, and Stefan balances Sasha out when she takes too much magic into herself. He also believes in her, and tells her often, especially when she refuses to believe in herself. I freaking love that guy! We don't get to see as much of Charles in this one though, sad face, but he does end up taking one for the team. Poor guy never stood a chance. Darla and Jonas are pretty active in this installment. Darla....ugh, I hate that chick. We do get to know Jonas a touch better though, which is good. I feel like he's a character we don't really understand, so far.
New character's now, and I won't get too much into them for now. Dominicous is Stefan's Regional, the head honcho, the big man. I really like Dominicous, he may be one mean mother to hold his title, but, he's laid back, and understanding too, also a little bit funny. Toa (pronounced toe...I know), is a White Mage, he has lots of power, and a lot of patience too, it seems. We also meet some Mata, or shape changers. Lions, and tigers, and bears, oh my. Ann, and Tim are a couple of these Mata that I'm excited to get to know better. So far, Tim is Alpha, and Ann is just a friendly girl who understands some of the things Sasha has been feeling all her life.
Dominicous thinks it would help Sasha get a better grasp of her magic, if she were away from prying eyes, and judgment. Of course, with Sasha, and the people who would love to get their hands on her, things don't really go the way they are supposed to. Good news, she is, in fact, learning. Toa helps her the only way he knows how.
I love K.F. Breene, this isn't really news. I honestly can't wait for this story to play out. Not because I don't love it, but because I'm so impatient. I want to know what happens. I have so many questions, and I just can't wait for answers. The only thing I DIDN'T like about this story was Darla....man, I hate that Darla. I wish she were real, just so I could throatpunch her. If you haven't picked up this series, do. So much fun to read.
