This book seemed a lot more haphazard than the first. Lots of interesting things happening still, but I'm finding the breaks from character group to character group less interesting each time they happen. We'll see what the next one has in store.

Reread: This book isn't so haphazard as I felt last time, but the focus is much more widespread. A lot of interesting new developments kick in here, and it is a nice world-building book. I really only have one beef with the story, and that is Kylar not bothering to change his name when he goes into hiding. Seriously? The best assassin in the world can't figure out that when laying low, you might not want to go by the same name that everyone knows? Yeesh. ( )

Taken as a whole, Shadow's Edge takes everything (the good and the bad) of the first Night Angel book and cranks it up even further. On the plus side, the good becomes even better. It was hard to put this book down. On the down side, a lot of the first part of the book where Kylar tries to run from his powers and live a normal life is honestly fairly boring. Luckily it picks back up and really goes crazy by the end.

There are storylines all over the place. The all manage to tie together more or less, so I don't particularly mind, but there are a few that I feel probably could have been cut to make a tighter story. Kylar's story is interesting, obviously enough, as is that of Vi and the Godking. Sister Ariel's story I feel could actually carry a story of its own and directly relates to the others. Logan's time in the Hole is fascinating, but seemed to drag on forever (which I guess could have been intentional). But the storyline about the prostitute's rebellion? All that about the Ubersword of DESTINY? I trust that eventually they'll pay off. But within the context of this single story, the feel weird.

There is still a lot of obsession with sex that will certainly appeal to the teen male demographic of the book. It felt out of character for the time period / style of the book at times, but for the most part, I just skipped by it.

Characterwise, I'm liking Kylar a lot more, especially once he gets back to being the Night Angel. I don't particularly like how suddenly godly he's become, especially compared to pretty much everyone in the book.

After that, I really liked the character of Sister Ariel. Like I mentioned before, It think she could actually carry a book by herself. She reminds me a lot of the better parts of the Wheel of Time.

One character that surprised me how much I enjoyed reading was Vi. She really grew and changed throughout the book and I like just how snarky she can me. I wasn't a fan of how quickly she got 'better' towards the end, but ... magic I guess?

Worldbuildingwise, the magic systems are fascinating. We learn a bit more about the vir, but we still don't know everything. Weeks has managed to make it feel like a well defined, rule based magic system while at the same time keeping things mysterious enough for both the reader and many of the characters that magic still feels, well, magical.

Overall, an excellent book. Worth the read.

Holy crap that epilogue.

Side note: Take a few minutes and read the top rated reviews on Goodreads. For a book with an overall 4.27 rating, there are a quite a few who really hated this book. People are interesting. ( )

Book #2 in Night Angel trilogy. Kylar, Elene and Uly escape from Cenaria, and Kylar tries to leave the wetboy life, but Jarl comes to enlist his help to save Logan Gyre's life and kill the Godking Garoth. Good story, crisp pace, an excellent sequel all around. ( )

Holy crap I hate it when books end on a twist! Not that it wasn't totally warranted considering all the action that went down through the course of the story, but it was annoying none the less. I'm really excited to read the final book though, since I'm sure there's going to be even more of an upheaval considering that the Godking is dead, Durzo is alive, Kylar and Vi are married, and Logan has (pretty much) reclaimed his crown.
