this is just the start of a string of total winners...

Title: Edge of Fear
Author: Cherry Adair

So apparently I'm reading this trilogy in reverse order. Whoops! Too bad I'm just reading the books as I find them at the library...

This is the second of a trilogy about a set of brothers who have magical powers and fight terrorism. My review of the third book can be read here - you may want to check that out, as I'll probably skim over some details.

Caleb's special power is the ability to manipulate time! He can go backwards, and can take people backwards and they never know it happened!

Heather's a regular person who happens to be the daughter of a wealthy banker for terrorists who is now on the run because $48 billion disappeared and they want to kill him. Caleb and the other magical-terrorist-fighting-people want to find dad to take down the terrorists, so he's sent to Heather to use her to find him.

It takes a few tries, but he manages to pick her up in the grocery store. Then they go to Starbucks, make out, go home, have sex, and he leaves, confident that she doesn't know where her father is hiding.

They find dad other ways. Heather's pregnant. Caleb goes and marries her, then takes her to dad, not telling her how or why or who or anything. A giant clusterfuck ensues. Dad gets shot and dies, and it turns out her dead mother, who he may have killed, was the one who hid the money.

Um, various other terrorists kidnap Heather. Caleb almost dies a few times. Heather does die, but Caleb uses his healing powers (his other special power) to bring her back from the dead. And their unborn child is a very powerful wizard while still in the womb, who apparently takes orders from mom. Heather forgives Caleb for not telling her everything, and some magical old bracelet helps with the curse-breaking, and they all live happily ever after.

And yet, I can think of one specific winner that has yet to appear as one of your reviews... You're not going to let me down, are you, ket? : )

Wow, I haven't read this blog in a while (ooops), but I have to say this post was a great thing to return to.

If that's a winner, I hate to know what a loser is. :)

I give you a lot of credit, ket, for forcing yourself to read these just so you can write such hysterical reviews! :)
