EDGE OF DARKNESS
Here's a trilogy that goes
out with a very satisfactory bang. Themes of love, duty and sacrifice are expertly combined with
a hefty dose of magic. As in the previous books, Adair's potential lovers have their own particular strengths and weaknesses, which play off the ongoing elements of danger and sacrifice. With this phenomenal series, Adair demonstrates how the wonderful power of love can carry dangerous consequences when turned to hate.
With a serial-killer wizard on the loose and the upcoming tests, Duncan can't afford any distractions -- so he's not about to let the ancient Edge family curse on love get in his way. But you know what often happens to best-laid plans. (BALLANTINE, Sep., 319 pp., $6.99)
