Edge of darkness features some of out favourite characters from previous books Dani, Deacon, Faith, the O’Bannion brothers, kate and decker and also Diesel etc. This book is focused on Meredith and Adam, Meredith Fallon is a child psychologist who we met briefly Karen Rose’s earlier novel.

Karen Rose’s books are always tense and unpredictable, you never know what’s going to happen. Her books keep you on the edge of you seat till the very end and that was the very same on this book.I thoroughly enjoyed edge of darkness it has such a strong plot with a killer at large and with the emotions and feelings between Meredith and Adam I couldn’t get enough.
The beauty of Karen Rose’s novels is that she doesn’t offer any red herrings you are literally left guessing the whole way through, she blends her books so well with the main plot and romance between the two main characters, she has the ability to mix them so well.
After more than 20 books the Author still manages to capture my attention with wonderful characters and complex plots which keeps you reading until the last word on the last page and I cant wait for her next book. Karen Rose’s book always keep me hooked I can always re-read them and never get enough of them.
