Edged Blade (Colbana Files #4) by J. C.Daniels

Urban Fantasy

From Goodreads:

In the year since her life was torn apart, Kit Colbana has slowly rebuilt herself. There’s a promise of hope in the relationship with the alpha of the local shapeshifters and she no longer comes screaming into wakefulness. Life’s not perfect but then again, when was it ever?

When her best friend Justin comes to her for help, there’s little question as to what her answer will be. Witches are disappearing and Justin won’t rest until he has answers. Soon, they learn that it’s not just witches who’ve gone missing, but vampires and shifters, too.

Unlikely alliances are forged as Kit and Justin found themselves drawn into a twisted web of lies and betrayal. As the clock counts down and the culprit behind recent disappearances is revealed, those Kit loves the most become the target of somebody who will kill to protect an ugly secret.

Edged Blade is the book that sets up the next problem in the series.  While Kit still has nightmares about everything that happened a year ago she has learned to live with it and is moving on with her life.

Justin is back and needs help.  Every part of the NH (Not Human) population ends up being drawn into the problem.  While there is some resolution the problem is much bigger than anyone thought.  Watch for a surprise ending.  I kept looking for the next page after that last sentence.  Then I realized that the next page was really the next book.

Once again Daniels has produced a riveting tension filled story that adds to the world building and character development in the series.  It is also a bridge between the last three books and future stories. 

Edged Blade can be read as a stand alone but start at the beginning of the series for further enjoyment.

Shiloh Walker, Inc. published Edged Blade by Shiloh Walker in 2015.

I received an ARC of Edged Blade from Netgalley in return for an honest review.
