#BookReview for The Edge of Everything (The Edge of Everything #1) by Jeff Giles

Synopsis: For the perfect love, what would you be willing to lose?

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. 

X is forbidden from revealing himself to anyone other than his prey, but he casts aside the Lowlands’ rules for Zoe.

 As they learn more about their colliding worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future.

My Review: Somehow I ended up with another copy of this one so I thought why not try it again for the last time. Because, I also ended up with a copy of book two.  Well my original review stands. I can not read this book.  

God I feel like I'm the only one who really didn't like this book. I DMFed it early on and just couldn't get into it. The girl in this kept blabbing about other thing while the story was getting started which made it hard to follow and really slowed it down. You have a girl who lives on a mountain and is in 15 below weather and she runs out of the house with no provisions!? Ya that was a little far fetched for me. You wouldn't survive long in those kinds of conditions. And this could have been fixed very simply. For me this one just didn't work out. It kind of felt all over the place.
