Lauren's writing has improved greatly since the first book where she used to repeat some phrases again and again.
I felt the narrator didn't put as much effort into the characters as she did in the last book. The book is mainly written from the view of the main female character and her British husband.While she's a clear narrator and makes some effort it can be difficult at times to workout which characters part she's reading and she was far clearer in the previous book.
The original narrator for the first two books made an excellent effort to get the characters accents eg British, Irish and American correct and whether they where male or female but she had the sort of voice that suited those parts.
I love this series and the narration is terrific. Unfortunately, this book was not the same quality as the others in the series. It was unsatisfying, like it's half of a longer book and it's clear the author was really rushed to meet a deadline and the story definitely suffered. The last chapters are so rushed. When the big coming out 4-day marriage celebration at Theo's finally happened at the end of the book, the author only gave it a few pages!!! Seriously? It was so bizarre considering the fact we've been anticipating it since the last book and the author talked it up all through this one, as well. I really really wish the publisher had given an even longer extension to the author. I'd much rather wait. This book suffered. Poor book. Sorry Lauren. You're awesome, but something happened and in my dreams it will be reissued in a more complete form someday....

The repartee is crisp, the action is continuous, and the heroine is both thoughtful and a real badass.
What was one of the most memorable moments of At Blade's Edge?
Rowan considers options then commits to her actions - no holes barred.
What does Simone Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Read the book before I bought the audio. It is a favorite series. She does an excellent job with characterizations.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Reading/Listening to the series in order is beneficial to understanding.
