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. ****

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.

Can you say magnificent? Well you certainly can't say anything negative about this novel because "Edge of Twilight" is certainly beyond compare.
"Edge of Twilight" is one of most entertaining novels Maggie Shayne has written to date and in my opinion it is simply the best of the "Twilight" series and I should know as I've read every last one of them.
This second installment of Amber Lily's life "the Child of Promise", the child born to two vampires who is born not a vampire but not a mortal either has it all, from drama to humor, from love to hate, from mistrust to trust. Once you begin this adventure into the "Twilight" you will find can't stop reading until you've just reached the last page and still find yourself wanting more.
Amber Lily has supernatural powers like no other and she's still discovering new things that she can achieve. To date she can't be killed by any known methods and that is something our old friend Frank Stiles former "DPI" secret government agent wants to obtain for himself. Frank Stiles hates all vampires and attempts to destroy them by any means possible but he craves the one thing they have "immortality" and once again he's after the "Child of Promise" but what he doesn't know is that he is also being hunted by "Child of Promise" for the same reasons.
Amber Lily is on a mission to find a cure for a friend who has been diagnosed with cancer and along the way she meets the man of her dreams, I mean literally the man of her dreams. Can she trust him? No. But Amber Lily follows her heart not her head and by doing so she ends up with the love of lifetime.
And, although Edge has his own agenda (revenge), upon his first sighting of Amber Lily his quest changes along the way and becomes twofold, love/family or revenge/a lifetime of loneliness. Which will he choose? You might be surprised but read this novel as it is certainly bound to go down in history as one of the greatest vampire love stories of all time.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1959, Edge being the oldest and most experienced of the Gang of Five serves as a surrogate farther to his four fledglings. The youngest returns home to tell them how she drank blood from some stud that peed in his pants before she took his Rolex and wallet. Edge leaves to locate one of his children who failed to return home. When he comes back alone, he finds his four vampire children dead and the watch missing. Edge vows to kill Frank Stiles, the man who peed in his pants.
Forty years later Edge still hunts down Frank though he previously killed this hated human. He learns that Frank comes back to life due to something involving the "Child of Promise" that Frank once held prisoner. Edge believes that this "Child", the only known half human and half vampire in existence can lead him to Frank. When the legendary "child" Amber Lily travels to assist a human friend dying from cancer, she runs into Edge. As they become acquainted they fall in love though she knows he is using her. Neither understands that their agendas match, as she needs Frank who used his experiments on her to learn how to cheat death.
EDGE OF TWILIGHT is an engaging vampire romance starring two exceptional protagonists. The support cast is a delight as each one wants to keep Amber safe in a cocoon and none including the heroine trusts Edge. Though the timeline seems inexplicable as to why Edge failed to kill Frank in the first three decades plus after the fledgling murders occurred and before he kidnapped Amber, fans will appreciate this engrossing supernatural romantic suspense.
