Review: The Edge of Everything by Jeff Giles

 Release Date: January 31st 2017

Summary from Goodreads:

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.

My Review:

What I Did Not Like:

I really dislike Instant Love and that happened right away between X and Zoe, I would have liked their relationship more if it had unfolded naturally.

The plot in my opinion was very confusing and I struggled to follow along with the setting change and the disconnect.

The point of view/writing style, the third person style threw me off and I was not a fan of that format.

What I Liked:

The story/plot was interesting and unlike anything I've read in the YA genre, so that was a big positive.

The side characters. I adored Zoe's brother and her family, and the storylines with them were very intriging.

I would recommend checking this out for the strange plot if it sounds interesting to you.

My Rating:

3 Stars Out 5 Stars
