Publisher's Summary

Rowan Summerwaite is no ordinary woman. Raised at the knee of The First and honed into a weapon by the Hunter Corporation, she wields ancient knowledge from the Goddess Brigid...and is newly married to a powerful Vampire scion.
Though she'd hoped the deadly events in Venice would end the threat to The Treaty she is sworn to protect, Rowan found evidence of a grander conspiracy to destroy the fragile peace that holds humans, Vampires, and those with magic back from war. A war that would only hurt the weakest and destabilize the world as we know it. It's not so much that someone ordered her assassination that makes her angry - people try to kill her all the time - as it is the risks those she cares for, especially her new husband, now face.
Clive Stewart has never tried to pen Rowan in or control her choices. He has his own fires to put out now that he's married to the most powerful non-Vampire in their world, and Rowan knows it's a challenge to support her the way she needs while not being too much or not enough.
The organization that gave her a purpose, a home, roots, and a path when she'd run from The Keep at 17 has betrayed her. Now, instead of on a much-anticipated honeymoon, Rowan is in London gathering her allies and the evidence necessary to drive out the rot within Hunter Corp. and expose whoever is at the top.
Rowan is a predator and this threat is prey. She'll burn it down and salt the earth afterward. On her terms.

Big Disappointment - Rushed, underdeveloped and short

I love this series and the narration is terrific. Unfortunately, this book was not the same quality as the others in the series. It was unsatisfying, like it's half of a longer book and it's clear the author was really rushed to meet a deadline and the story definitely suffered. The last chapters are so rushed. When the big coming out 4-day marriage celebration at Theo's finally happened at the end of the book, the author only gave it a few pages!!! Seriously? It was so bizarre considering the fact we've been anticipating it since the last book and the author talked it up all through this one, as well. I really really wish the publisher had given an even longer extension to the author. I'd much rather wait. This book suffered. Poor book. Sorry Lauren. You're awesome, but something happened and in my dreams it will be reissued in a more complete form someday....

What made the experience of listening to At Blade's Edge the most enjoyable?

The repartee is crisp, the action is continuous, and the heroine is both thoughtful and a real badass.

What was one of the most memorable moments of At Blade's Edge?

Rowan considers options then commits to her actions - no holes barred.

What does Simone Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Read the book before I bought the audio. It is a favorite series. She does an excellent job with characterizations.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Reading/Listening to the series in order is beneficial to understanding.
