The Edge of Everything
The Edge of Everything | Jeff Giles
It's been a shattering year for seventeen-year-old Zoe, who's still reeling from her father's shockingly sudden death in a caving accident and her neighbors' mysterious disappearance from their own home. Then on a terrifying sub-zero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in a cabin in the woods-only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X. X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from a hell called the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe's evil attacker and others like him. Forbidden to reveal himself to anyone other than his victims, X casts aside the Lowlands' rules for Zoe. As X and Zoe learn more about their different worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future. But escaping the Lowlands and the ties that bind X might mean the ultimate sacrifice for both of them. Gripping and full of heart, this epic journey will bring readers right to the edge of everything. Praise for The Terrorist's Son Winner of the 2015 Alex Award

Very insta-lovey but still a good book, I enjoyed reading it. The main character had a goofy personality which I love, and the premise of the book was pretty cool. I will say that nothing really stood out to me in this book. I'm having a bit of trouble writing anything about it because it just wasn't incredibly memorable to me. Even after saying that, I would still say it was worth the read, I got a few laughs out of it and it was a cute book.

I have tried this one twice and I‘m just done the start of the book focus way to much about this girls life when she‘s trying to find her brother in a blizzard. Slow and boring.

As far as insta-love stories go, this was a decent one. The settings were well-rendered, & the prose could be really nice at times. The pacing was a bit slow, but the plot interesting enough to keep me engaged. I liked the main characters well enough, but it was really the side characters that captured my attention — mainly adorable, big-hearted Jonah. I kinda wish this was actually about about the adventures of Jonah, Uhura & Spock, tbh. ★★★☆☆.

This isn't a new book. It's a cover change. I like this so much more than the original. The sequel is in this style as well. So much more interesting to me.

This was a ton of fun! The middle was a little rambly but it made up for it by using that time to give characters a lot of depth. The writing was cringey and juvenile at some parts and the insta love was real but that plot was amazing

This book kept my entertained though it does drag in the middle. It is obvious that most of the love went into the protagonist, X, and his world but I was totally OK with that, because X is one great character. I worry about the reread value though. #bookaddict #booknerd #bookish #bibliophile #bookworm #booklove #bookstagram

This was a surprising read. I didn‘t realize it was going to be a fantasy or supernatural story but that was a pleasant surprise.

I loved the characters and the banter between X and the other characters in the Lowland were my favorite part. I can‘t wait to read the second book.

I am not sure how I felt about this one. I did not feel driven to keep reading, every time I put it down I was not eager to pick it back up. But the characters were well written the the plot was ok? Overall just not inspiring I guess.

I liked Zoe's story. I liked X's story. I would have read two separate books about these characters, but I didn't believe them as a love story once their worlds collide. Some parts were predictable or forced. I appreciated the world building of the Lowlands and their hierarchy. Overall just ok for me.

Finally getting around to reading this. It's an interesting premise: a bounty hunter from the "Lowlands" (an underworld/hell kind of place) comes to Earth to retrieve an evil soul and gets mixed up in the lives of a family there.

I don't think I've ever face palmed myself so many times in one book, until now. This book had such great potential , and was an original story line, but the love side of it made me cringe ! I wanted to slap both Zoe and X over the face so many times! There was not a lot of character depth , and they were both very naive which was annoying

MLVReads This is the kind of blurb that belongs on a book like "The Hate U Give" or "What We Saw" or something that will affect people's POVs in life and make some change in the world (to be fair, I didn't read this so maybe I'm wrong). 3y
