It’s the End of the World and We Feel Fine Because
Hot Sex + Hard Vikings = Mind. Blown.
Book 3 in the Edge series!
This brotherhood of raider warriors is alpha, dominant, unforgiving…and they keep what they take.
Riordan is a ruthless warrior whose foes tremble before him in his drowned and ruined world. The last thing he wants to do is go undercover as a weakling to spy on his clan’s enemies. Much less with Eiryn— a fierce warrior in her own right and the only woman Riordan’s never been able to forget. He knows that a single touch will throw them straight back into that same old uncontrollable fire. But this time, he might just let them burn.
Eiryn has been betrayed too many times. An escape into a dangerous mission where she can pretend to be the soft, biddable female she’s not seems like the perfect solution. She’s sure she can control the fiery passion that simmers between her and Riordan, the man she’s spent years pretending to hate. After all, the unquenchable lust that flares between them now is all for show… isn’t it?
Wulf’s book, Edge of Power, is coming soon!
Edge of Control penned by Megan Crane is the 3rd title in her Edge Series. The series is set in the future. I must say that our future for Earth is very dark and bleak.
Heavy storms destroyed earth and floods cover most of the world, making earth a place where only the strong survives. In Riordan world that is just find with him. At a young age he didn’t want to become a farmer. So, when he had the opportunity he broke free from his family. Setting in motion the life he’s living now. Where he is constantly striving to prove that he’s no one to mess with.
Now part of a new family…they call themselves the Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is a better place than the life he would have lived or so he thought.
Now he has come full circles. He must go undercover as a compliant to uncover what the Brotherhood’s enemy has in stored for them next. If Riordan had his choice on who must take on the mission he would have chosen anyone either than Eiryn.
Eiryn has been betrayed by everyone in her life, and in this new world Eiryn learned that the only person you can count on is yourself. However, picked to go on a mission, she must put everything she learned about becoming a warrior and become a soft compliant female to uncover the enemy plot on destroying the Brotherhood.
Edge of Control is Waterworld meets The Day after Tomorrow. I don’t know about how other people viewed these movies. But I found them to be very lackluster. I didn’t feel lost more so that the author had the readers spending more time in the main characters’ head, then in interaction with other characters in the story. So often we get some dialogue that moved the story along then we are submerged once more in the head of Riordan and/or Eiryn.
What made me want to read this book to begin with was the principle of a strong ruthless warrior who tries to overcome his past and in doing so, find that one person who understood him and how he ticks and is okay with the man that he becomes. All the elements where there for a great story with an excellent plot line, but I just didn’t feel the characters.
I am not going to blame the author, I am convinced that with this series you must start the series from the beginning and work your way up to this point.
So, that would be my project over the next few weeks and maybe my outlook on this story will change. And since Wulf story is next, I better make catching up rather quickly. Because even though Riordan and Eiryn as a whole didn’t click for me, there was just something about Wulf that caught my attention.
