Edge of Oblivion: A Night Prowler Novel, Book 2 (Unabridged)
However, one thing leads to another and Demetrius and Eliana share their feelings for one another and due to certain events that take place, I feel like their story might be the next in the series. And I personally cannot wait! T, got me with her debut novel and still has my attention in the sequel. She is quickly becoming an author that no matter what she writes, I will pick it up. I am a fan of her writing style. She gives you details but doesn't go over board leaving you bored and skimming through pages. She makes you connect and feel for the characters in her stories to where you want to cry when something bad happens to them.
I definitely look forward to reading more of her work. Sep 24, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: Book 2 in the series follows Morgan. She is not sent alone. Xander, an assassin is sent with her. Should she fail to find the Expuragi within 2 weeks, he is to kill her. Of course, there is a power struggle between them that fosters a lot of sexual tension. In Rome, instead of finding the Expurga Book 2 in the series follows Morgan. In Rome, instead of finding the Expurgari, they find a feral pack of Ikati. This pack's actions put the Ikati in danger of being discovered by the human world.
Morgan and Xander have their hands full with this pack, but Morgan is on a deadline. I thought this book was going along pretty well - lots of action, some romance, twists in the plot, etc. So abrupt, it ranks right up there with "and she woke up to discover it was all a dream". Lots of loose ends left without even a teaser of what's to come. We are just asked to shift to the next two characters and leave it at that. I probably would have given the book 4 stars, but that ending!
I wrecked my opinion of the book. Sep 25, Suzan rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I really enjoyed this book and could have read it a lot faster if I hadn't just started a new job at the same time I received it! This was Morgan's book with her love interest being the Ikati Assassin Xander. It was great getting into her head and seeing how much she genuinely regretted what she did and maybe even craved home a little after trying to escape it for so long. There were also a couple of pretty big twists regarding the Expurgari that I won't reveal but that did take me by surprise a I really enjoyed this book and could have read it a lot faster if I hadn't just started a new job at the same time I received it!
There were also a couple of pretty big twists regarding the Expurgari that I won't reveal but that did take me by surprise at the end! Xander was easy to like as well, he really had a rough childhood, much rougher then Morgan but he was a good person despite his own poor opinion of himself. I loved these two together as in a lot of ways they can understand each other better then just about anyone else. I loved meeting the new colony as well and seeing how different they were from the colonies we know. I can see a future story involving Eliana and Demetrius being developed with how the book ended.
I'd love to see those two end up together and I think that her fathers research may be important to the Ikati race and be life-changing for them so I'd like to see how it plays out and whether their colony will now make contact with the other colonies, reach out to them and form an alliance of sorts.
I'd quite like that, they could come out of the tunnels and live above ground like the other colonies. I also want to see when Jenna from the first book is gonna start changing laws to improve the existence of female Ikati and to allow greater freedom in the tribe. I do hope that Morgan returns to the tribe eventually. I think she will miss them and that once she's travelled she may yearn to return home. Espeacially after what she learned. Can't wait for the next book!
I was so exited when I learned that the author had been contracted for another four books in this series! May 04, KathyAnne rated it it was amazing Shelves: Book one in this series sparked my curiosity but book TWO in this series has completely won me over. I am a fan! I should've known this one was gonna' be good because it starred Morgan who is a character full of spunk, defiance and sass. Definitely a personality that is entertaining and full of surprises.
And, when you throw in a mysterious, dangerous, hunky assassin named Xander Well, except for the fact that he is an assassin and hi Book one in this series sparked my curiosity but book TWO in this series has completely won me over. Well, except for the fact that he is an assassin and his mark is Morgan is being given a second chance to redeem herself after her betrayal of her people in book one If she fails then Xander has been ordered to execute her. Morgan and Xander travel to Rome and not long after they get there they discover a secret hiding cleverly underneath the Vatican itself As the story unfolds me meet some new and very intriguing characters.
And, we get to be a part of this adrenaline charged romance that seems hopeless if the task cannot be completed in time. This book has a little of all of things that I personally love about a book. Lots of action, creative storyline, steamy romance and an abundance of great characters that you both love and despise.
The story is written and developed in such a way that I can definitely see this series going far and I do hope it does. The next book in this series is called Rapture's Edge and will be released on June 18th I am thrilled to have an ARC copy so check back soon for my review on book three of this awesome series! For more of my reviews visit our blog: Sep 05, Mary rated it it was amazing Shelves: Geissinger manages to keep me up past my bedtime … Shapeshifters … I just love them.
Panthers… how cool, right? I had a lot of fun with the first book with its setting in the dark and foggy forests of England. This time the setting is the beautiful city Rome in Italy. The second book "Edge of Oblivion" tells the story of Morgan and Xander. She is an interesting character and a very free spirit. After she mad Again J.
If she fails, Xander will be the one to kill her… The fact that despite their cat-and-mouse game in the beginning they fall for each other — will make this task a tough one for Xander. The enemies in this story are unusually interesting. Add the beautiful scenery of Rome, J. Thanks for another Keeper, J. Aug 16, Tammy rated it it was amazing. Sometimes an author is lucky or maybe I should say talented and all the stars align perfectly so that the end result of all their hard work, a finished and published book, is exquisite.
Edge of Oblivion is a sublime example of a paranormal romance, and I was both dreading and anticipating getting to the last page. Edge of Oblivion is published by Montlake Romance, a publishing arm of Amazon.
Have I used enough superlatives yet to describe how much I enjoyed this book? A word of warning to any under-aged readers, however: But the author does a great job of subtly inserting vital information from the first book where needed, without bashing the reader over the head trying to catch us up to speed. Morgan is an Ikati , a secret race of shape-shifters descended from Cleopatra who can turn into panthers or vapor, or both. Morgan is part of the Ikati colony in England, one of four known colonies.
At the last minute, Queen Jenna makes a deal with Morgan. She has two weeks to track down the sworn enemy of the Ikati , the Expurgari , whom they know to be hidden somewhere in Rome, or she will be killed. Geissinger sets these two characters up in typical romance fashion by pitting them against each other in the beginning, and then creating opportunities for them to grow closer together.
Edge of Oblivion: A Night Prowler Novel – Books, Bones & Buffy
In Rome Morgan and Xander run into a rogue Alpha named Dominus who is not affiliated with any of the four colonies. Xander senses danger and tries to catch him, but he gets away. But the damage has been done. Dominus, having the superior sense of smell that all Ikati have, has figured out that Morgan is a full-blooded female who is unmated, and he wants to use her in his evil plan which I will not give away in this review! Xander and Morgan temporarily forget the reason they have come to Rome in the first place, as they try to avoid Dominus and his band of powerful and feral Ikati , who are all relentlessly chasing Morgan.
The story is nearly non-stop action from this point on, as Morgan and Xander find themselves in danger time and again, while continuing to look for the hidden Expurgari before the two weeks is up.
iTunes is the world's easiest way to organize and add to your digital media collection.
In the midst of all the action is the blooming romance between Xander and Morgan, with plenty of misunderstandings thrown in to muddy the waters and keep readers hearts palpitating before the climax comes, so to speak. The author has done a bang up job with her world building, and I enjoyed every detail of the Ikati , including their powers of shape-shifting. Xander can not only turn into a panther, but he can also shift into vapor form or pass through walls. She concentrates more on the relationships between the characters, and less on their lives as panthers. The life of an Ikati is a hard one, since they are required to live in secrecy, and several of the characters, in particular the female ones, have never seen the light of day.
The author does a great job portraying the horrible loss of freedom these women suffer, and their desire to live beyond the constraints of their male superiors. Romance novels may fall into the category of "guilty pleasure," but if that's the case with this book, I happily consider myself guilty as charged.
Full of perfect pacing, seriously dangerous characters, and some super steamy romance and I do mean super steamy, folks! Many thanks to Emily LaBeaume from Wunderkind PR for bring this book to my attention, and for supplying a review copy. It is free through Kindle Unlimited in audio I am quickly devouring them. I finish one and cannot wait to start the next. I LOVE completed series like this. Very Interesting Very interesting dynamics between Morgan and Xander. The assassin and his mark. Not an easy love connection that's for sure.
Even though both characters have done horrible things, you can't help but like them. The Alpha that they find is completely insane but it would be exciting to see where his experiments go. I am very curious what he found.

This is an interesting mix of sci fi and urban fantasy. Oct 01, La-Lionne rated it it was amazing Shelves: Beautifully written fairy tail that left me breathless As much as i loved the first book, i loved this one even more. Which is first for me. I hardly ever like the second book more than the first. I have to admit, that after reading the first book, I had high expectations for the sequel.
Not nessecaraly looking for something different. More like wanting for it to be at least as good as the first one. Because I thought that the writing style was qiute unique. One of the reasons I loved the first b Beautifully written fairy tail that left me breathless As much as i loved the first book, i loved this one even more. One of the reasons I loved the first book was the brilliant writing, that had poetic sound and nice flow to it.
I usually don't have hight expectations for the sequels, I only want to get some answers that the first book didn't have. First book is always more exiting than the second one. Usually, the mystery surrounding the main characters is gone and you left wondering what author is going to do to keep us interested this time if you found the first book interesting enought to consider reading the next one. So it was not brainer, I pre-ordered the second book the minut it was available.
I will try not to give to much away, even though I could talk about this book for ever: So here is some of the things which made me love this book even more than the first one. I'm not even gonna commen on the writing, it was superb. I like the fact that some of the parts in the beginning was toled from Leander's and Jenna's point of views. I have missed them and it was nice to see that they were still going strong. This time story revolved around Xander and Morgan. Gentle giant or as Morgan called him beautiful assassin: Perfect combination of hard and soft, cold and warm.
The thing that I liked in both books is that none of the heroines had a victim roles. Even though Morgan found her self in a situation that you wouldn't have wished on your enemy, she never played a victim role and always held her head hight. I do enjoy books that have strong and confident alpha males, but rarely enjoy and easely get bored by the weak heroines. Which Morgan it's not. She was not afraid to challenge Xander and stand her ground when she needed to.
This little thing of "back and forward" between them, made the book hard to put it down. This time we got to travel to Rome, where all hell broke loose and the story took unexpected turn. There, we got to know better some of the Xander's friend from way back when, who gave us a little insight and revealed some of his secrets from the past. And then, things got more serious.
There was also this little thing happening called Fever.
If it was any other book, written by any other author, I would have described it as steamy, hot or sexy, but in this case it would be an understatement and wouldn't do the justice. Heartbreaking self torture and painful self control would be more accurate. I can't even begin to explane how I felt while I was reading about it. I also like the fact that even though they were caught up in the moment, they were painfully aware of the fact that when tomorrow comes they will have to deal with the consequences.
The odds weren't in their favor. There is the law that you have to follow and there is no way around it. I'm gonna stop it at that: I know that there is only 5 star option, but since it is my review, I'm giving all the stars there is: I also want to address one other thing. After I read the first book, I saw that some of the readers were complaining about the fact that ikati have proclaimed them selfs as the most beautiful creatures there is.
Which made them look self absorbed and cocky. What I want to say is that the word "beautiful" was never used alone if you really paid attention. It was used with other words such as "brave", "fearless", "smart", "strong" and so on. They ikati never said that humans were uglier than ikati, only their way of life was ugly. They based that only on their experience with humans. The word "beautiful" was rarely used in context describing superficial things or fisical beauty.
So, with all things being said, zing-zing-zing-amazing second installment. Breathtaking, hearbraking and beautifully written story. Aug 31, Shauni rated it really liked it Shelves: Edge of Oblivion is book two in this powerful series that J. Anyway both books were a delight and I am looking forward to the rest of the series. But Edge, I think will always have a special place in my heart It's about redemption!
It's about acknowledging you made a Edge of Oblivion is book two in this powerful series that J. It's also about keeping a promise made, even when the "rules" say otherwise. Morgan, we met her in Shadow's Edge, was the first woman allowed a place on the council.. Morgan dreamed of freedom and the council kept all females close at hand.. She was desperate and made a desperate choice, betraying her people in the process. Her choice almost killed a dear friend and was cause for the queen to be captured.
For such a heinous crime death is the only punishment of course some members of the council substitute the word death with hideous torture and call it tradition.
Get A Copy
The only problem with putting Morgan to death was that Jenna said Queen had promised her freedom.. Her solution was to send Morgan on a mission.. Oh yeah and you have two weeks to do so. Xander, the man who should be alpha.. What he could do is become the best at what he did. Only Xander had a heart and fell in love with the very human daughter of his "teacher", a forbidden love in the Ikati world. Of course those things never do end well and their love lead to her death. Now years later, Xander is bruised, he has spent a lifetime cleaning up the mess of rogue Ikati..
What these two lost souls don't know, is that there is always hope. When their attraction leads them into areas neither ever expected to find, both are confused. Morgan is more open to it, face it she is living a death sentence.. But Xander, he doubts Morgan, he doubts his ability to get the job done and sadly, he doubts his right to love. When he is injured and Morgan calls in his team, things go from really shaky bad to worse.. The team doesn't want to accept Morgan, they have been with Xander since the death of his first love. They know the agonies he suffers..
I love Ms Geissinger's work. She writes with such power and passion. Her characters strike a place in my heart. I believed in Morgan.. I understood her need and desire to be free. Her poor choices made because she had to escape.. I felt for Xander, the powerful heart, this man had.. I adored how this gang of misfits became a family.. I seriously hope to see more of them in future works..
They were just marvelous!! Shauni This review is based Edge of Oblivion, provided by author for my honest opinion Geissinger breathes fresh life into the paranormal romance genre with the Night Prowler series. Edge of Oblivion captivated me with the thrilling excitement of the plot and the smoldering relationship that developed between Morgan and Xander. I somehow missed the first book in the series, Shadow's Edge, but after reading Edge of Oblivion I really want to go back and read it.
Even without having read the first book, I didn't have trouble figuring out the world of the Ikati and 4. Even without having read the first book, I didn't have trouble figuring out the world of the Ikati and understanding the nature of the jaguar shifters and their world. Edge of Oblivion is the type of paranormal book where the supernatural world exists within the normal human world. The Ikati are a group of jaguar shifters who all have unique abilities and gifts in addition to their shape-shifter form.
The gifts range from persuasion to turning into mist. The range of characters with various personalities and abilities is immense, well-develped and makes for intriguing reading. In Edge of Oblivion the protagonist is Morgan, she is on a mission to uncover their enemies in a last ditch effort to save her life after making mistakes that almost cost the Queen her life book 1. Even though I didn't know the specifics of how she wound up in trouble, it was easy to understand Morgan. All she wanted was to be free to be her own person and not have her life dictated to her.
I sympathized with her and found myself rooting for her. Then there is Xander, a deadly assassin-slash-Morgan's-babysitter. He had to keep tabs on Morgan and if she didn't complete her mission, it would be his job to kill her. However, as the pair works together and discovers a hidden pack of Ikati in Rome, attraction between them grows. There are quite a few different aspects to this story, more than I could possible sum up and I don't want to give away the book. Let me make it simple and say that the plot lines are very detailed, there are side stories and various viewpoints that all somehow relate to the main storyline I apologize for the vagueness.
The Ikati even have their own mythology to add to the story. The secondary characters are intriguing as well and I am eager to learn what happens next for many of them. Edge of Oblivion blends together action, fantasy, shape-shifters, and romance into a well-developed and intricate paranormal novel with intriguing and likable characters. When it comes to paranormal romance, I couldn't ask for more. Readers, if you are a fan of paranormal romance, urban fantasy, or shape shifters I definitely recommend checking out this series. I don't think you have to read books 1 and 2 in order, but it will likely only enhance your reading experience.
I want to go back and read book 1 and I hope that J. Geissinger has big plans for book 3! With the red sash, the hieroglyphs, and the eyes, it's a very attention grabbing cover. Oct 09, Audrie Cruz-Sealey rated it really liked it. So this book seems to start a couple of weeks after the first book. Jenna and Leander are married and Jenna is settling into her role as Queen. Morgan is charged with treason for her part in what happened at the end of book one.
She is going to be executed. Remember though that Morgan put into action the betrayal before she really got to know Jenna, before she knew that Jenna was Queen. It is no excuse for what she did but it does make you feel a l 4. It is no excuse for what she did but it does make you feel a little more for her. Jenna still considers Morgan a friend and wants to give her a chance to live… Jenna makes Morgan a deal. Morgan has two weeks to find the leader of the organization that tried to kill Jenna. Time is a merciless thief. Now Leander is not going to send her off alone so he sends an assassin with her…Xander.
Xander is a professional killer and is assigned to help Morgan with her task but if she fails…he is the one that is going to kill her. He is so good at what he does…his torso is covered with tally marks one for every person he has killed. He is a powerful Ikati. Now at first, Xander and Morgan loathe each other.
Xander finds Morgan amusing…very different than any other female that he has been around. With chains and locks invisible but just as real and unyielding as those of steel. Cross one, cross us all. Kill one, kill us all.
