Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Wal-Mart, and magic is a fairy tale) and the Weird (where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny). Only Edgers like Rose can easily travel from one world to the next, but they never truly belong in either.
Rose thought if she practiced her magic, she could build a better life for herself. But things didn’t turn out how she planned, and now she works a minimum wage, off the books job in the Broken just to survive.
Then Declan Camarine, a blueblood noble straight out of the deepest part of the Weird, comes into her life, determined to have her (and her power).
But when a terrible danger invades the Edge from the Weird, a flood of creatures hungry for magic, Declan and Rose must work together to destroy them—or they’ll devour the Edge and everyone in it.
On the Edge begins with Rose being a poor Edger. She lives in a place that is almost like a go between the Broken world, and the Weird. Basically human place, and a magic place. The Edge is a place that still has people with magic just not has strong as people from the Weird, but they aren't as weak as people from the Broken. Rose has two little brothers that she takes care of since her mother is dead, and her father is gone. The only other family she has is her grandmother. But when trouble comes to the Edge Rose finds herself with a whole lot more people depending on her. Not only that but she meets a man from the Weird who claims to be royalty and wants to marry Rose.. Now she has to deal with all of this while still trying to make money to live.. She never knew her whole life would change in a just a few short weeks but for better or worse it does.
I really liked this book. I thought it was really good. I just sort of wish there was a little bit more to it than that. I felt like there was a whole lot of explaining about the worlds than there was actually plot line. I enjoyed Rose and Declan. They are an awesome couple, and very funny together. I also really loved the ending. Now I just wish the story would have continued with these two instead of others. I'm a little bit disappointed because of that. I also liked the fact that the story was in different people's point of views. Especially when it came to Jack and George. They were very awesome little kids, and it was very interesting to see things through their point of views.
