Book Description

Nov. 1 2010
His name is Edge, and he is the last of a band of Immortals who have been hunt4ed down and murdered by Frank Stiles -- an enemy determined to unlock their deepest secrets. Vengeance has become Edge's obsession. To claim it, he must find the young woman whispered to be the Golden Child.

A legend among the undead, Amber Lily is the only half human, half vampire ever born, and is possessed of power even she is unaware of. Amber alone understands the dangerous threat of Frank Stiles. Only she may hold the key to his vulnerability . . . and his doom.

Amber shares Edge's need to get to Stiles. But she needs to keep him alive for reasons of her own. Edge is exciting and dangerous, and despite her own instinct for self-preservation, Amber is drawn into his hunt. In doing so, she will cast her fate to the wings of the night, to a passion that may be her destiny, to an evil she may not be able to defeat -- to the edge of twilight where only the Immortals belong.

1.0 out of 5 stars So bad! July 7 2004
By PDL
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was so bad it was excruciating. I liked "Eternity", but Shayne's vampire stuff is awful. The characters continually remind one another that they are vampires. Sample:
Vampire 1: "Hey it's dark"
Vampire 2: "Don't worry, we are vampires! We can see in the dark!"
The dialogue continues like this throughout the whole book.
Shayne describes the main characer Edge as a bleached blond, thin man with a British accent who looks like Billy Idol. Why didn't she say "Hey, it's supposed to be Spike from Buffy, ok?"
One of the characters becomes pregnant. The baby talks to her in bad colloquial slang while in the womb. It's not supposed to be funny but it's hilarious.
I normally wouldn't finish a piece of garbage like this but it was kind of like watching the proverbial car crash. I couldn't believe it was happening and just had to see it through.
Save yourself. Don't read this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Starts a little slow... May 14 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Amber Lily is a truly unique person; the first child of a two vampires ever born. Though apparently human, she is something more. She is the key to immortality for mere mortals, or so believes Frank Stiles. Because Stiles wants Amber Lily, Edge, a vampire, is also drawn to her. Stiles killed his closest friends; but when Edge meets Amber, he knows that she is more than just the enemy of his enemy. Almost magical is the passion between them, and it has unexpected results that make Amber Lily an even greater prize.
Stiles does manage to capture the young woman, but not for long. When she escapes, he becomes a target himself. What human can hope to stand against the arrayed power of all the vampires in the Twilight Universe?
**** As the series takes a new direction, this volume starts off a little slow, but rapidly picks up speed. The vampire legend has dimensions added to it that logically arise from past volumes. Familiarity with the past books in the series will be extremely helpful, but the fast paced action is not dependent upon knowledge of them. A heart warming finish wraps things up nicely. ****

3.0 out of 5 stars Edge of Spike April 25 2004
By mela
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I admit I enjoyed this book for the most part. Particularly the hero, Edge. I enjoyed the character since I first saw him years ago when he went by the name Spike (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer). The similairities between Edge and Spike are amazing, bleach blonde hair, razor sharp cheekbones, a resemblance to Billy Idol with a bad boy persona hiding a loving, passionate vamp. There were also some similarities between the heroine, Amber and another well known, not quite normal girl with a hankering for undead hotties, Buffy. So while I would still recommend this book to anyone looking for a fun, vampire romance, there are better stories using these characters in some of the Buffy fanfic sights. For Free. Better yet, check out The Buffy DVDs, there you can see Spike all his hot, snarky, undead glory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Edge is her best hero yet. April 10 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love Maggie Shayne's Twilight series with her honorable heroes. However, it was a lot of fun to have the sarcastic, irreverent, unabashedly self-interested, unapologetically lusty Edge thrown into the mix. Sure, by the end he's part of the fold, but he's definitely a black sheep. Edge's personality clashes with Amber's extended and powerful family, who hate him on sight, made for a lot of fun. I gave it four stars instead five of because of the "bubble gum stunt" and other lame plot bits, but it's a keeper for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shayne�s next generation comes of age April 8 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In the previous Twilight book, Embrace the Twilight, we saw Jameson and Angelica's daughter Amber as an eighteen-year-old. This, the direct sequel to that book and which ties up the loose threads which Shayne left dangling, sees her in her early twenties. She's still not-quite-human, not-quite-vampire, but changed in strange ways since her kidnap and torture by Frank Stiles, the remaining DPI agent and vampire hunter.
But Stiles' quest has now changed: he wants immortality, and he believes that Amber - or more specifically her blood - can give it to him.
Then Amber discovers that Will Stone - one of the loose ends from Embrace the Twilight: Will is Sarafina's partner, but he's mortal and cannot even become a vampire, so what future does their relationship have? - has cancer and doesn't have long to live. The vampires work out that Stiles has managed to create some sort of formula, using Amber's blood, which seems to be able to cheat death, at least temporarily: is it possible that this could help Will? But for that they need to find Stiles and get the formula from him. Not easy.
Amber, on her way to be with Will and Sarafina, runs into a wild-looking vampire - literally. She knocks him down with her car. Edge, a 50-something-year-old vampire, has been tracking Amber because she, he knows, can lead him to Stiles - and he has his own reasons for wanting to meet Stiles again. Years earlier, Stiles brutally murdered Edge's companions, several teenage vampires, and Edge wants revenge.
He's sworn never to love again. He believes that he isn't capable of it - and that he can simply use anyone he needs to without a shred of remorse. And so he plans to use Amber - and, if necessary, he will seduce her to gain her trust and compliance.
