Knife Edge: Book 2
About this deal
It also actually reminded me of a TV show that I watched in the UK on ITV2 called The Big Reunion – the premise of the show were six groups from the 90’s and 00’s talk about their history and why they split up before reuniting for a reunion concert. Sephy is a Cross: she lives a life of privilege and power. But she's lonely, and burns with injustice at the world she sees around her.
Meanwhile, Jude is in hiding following the kidnapping attempt which went awry. Sephy recognized one of the men in the Liberation Militia as working for her father, Andrew Dawn and now Jude is looking for a way to get him found out and avenge his brother. He befriends a Cross salon owner, Cara Imega with the aim of trying to gain access to her money but as his violent and hateful nature takes over, what will be the consequences and what difficult decision will Sephy have to make?

Sephy is such an incredible character - how she thinks about everything, how she acts about everything. She dragged me into her emotions and I really felt for her. Loved the rainbow colour thing going on at the beginning of each section - this was a very clever idea which was seamlessly woven into the book with great intentions.
This is an original, intelligent, perceptive and though-provoking series of books – and whilst squarely aimed at the Young Adult market, it clearly transcends the restrictive boundaries of that genre. The two perspectives each had their own "feel" which made the characters distinctive when reading. It really showed how the characters thought in their own personal ways and because of how it felt different, it made them even more believable.The chapter style in this book was an improvement on the first, the chapters were longer which made the story feel less disjointed. I’m annoyed that there were more than two points of view though, I just feel it’s unnecessary and adds nothing at all to the story. I will say I loved being in Jude’s head for this one though – it was wild. Also, little is left to the readers. Things are stated so obviously with no opportunity to read between the lines for ourselves and infer from the text – many things really didn’t need to be stated but were which grated on me after a while.
