    I received a copy of this book from NetGalley Originally posted here book was an intense journey I was shocked, disgusted, worried, surprised I honestly felt emotionally drained when I was finished.Skye doesn t disappoint with the final book in The Edge of Darkness trilogy Berg and Jay have finally settled down into a happy relationship, things are going well at work, and then everything I received a copy of this book from NetGalley Originally posted here book was an intense journey I was shocked, disgusted, worried, surprised I honestly felt emotionally drained when I was finished.Skye doesn t disappoint with the final book in The Edge of Darkness trilogy Berg and Jay have finally settled down into a happy relationship, things are going well at work, and then everything goes to hell.While dealing with violent serial rapists and horrifying drug dealer mutilations, Berg is trying to hold things together assecrets start to unravel about herself and her past When ASA Carla Maroney who, by the way, is a woman I would very much like to punch right in the face takes great pleasure in revealing Berg s biggest secret about her involvement with Chicago s newest drug lord to Jay, it s like a bomb goes off in her happy world.I did not expect what happened next The slow revelations of what happened to Jay when he went undercover, along with the things that Berg does to get him back, and don t even get me started on what happened to make him stay undercover, all made me want to scream at this book It was so unexpected for me I was ready to start hating Jay and then we find out why he s done the things he did.In all honesty, I don t think I m going to read a better Crime Thriller this year.Although Bloodlines is dark and horrific to read at times, it keeps you glued to the story and it s hard to put down once you pick it up I won t be getting over this trilogy any time soon

    After having read The Enemy Inside and Broken I embarked on what to be my most enjoyable read of the Edge of Darkness series with Bloodlines The way the author has intertwined multiple storylines through the main character Berg, she had me enthralled from the very beginning I found myself wanting to skip ahead to see what came next as my heart raced, however I controlled the desire and read every word Yes this is a dark series of detective thrillers, however sometimes you need the dark to g After having read The Enemy Inside and Broken I embarked on what to be my most enjoyable read of the Edge of Darkness series with Bloodlines The way the author has intertwined multiple storylines through the main character Berg, she had me enthralled from the very beginning I found myself wanting to skip ahead to see what came next as my heart raced, however I controlled the desire and read every word Yes this is a dark series of detective thrillers, however sometimes you need the dark to gain a greater appreciation of the light.Do you have to have read the previous two books in order to understand what was happening No however I wouldn t recommend it Without the other two books your investment in the somewhat flawed character Berg, would not be the same and that would indeed be a shame I highly recommend not just this book, but the entire series Vanessa Skye I loved it

    This is the first novel I have read by this author What I really liked was the heroine in this story was flawed She wasn t this perfect individual But a woman who broke the law and made her choices that were best for her and her loved ones, even though she was a cop Not that I am going to suggest that everyone needs to out there and break the law But people need to stop doing what everyone thinks they should do and start doing what makes them happy I enjoyed the twist that popped up in the This is the first novel I have read by this author What I really liked was the heroine in this story was flawed She wasn t this perfect individual But a woman who broke the law and made her choices that were best for her and her loved ones, even though she was a cop Not that I am going to suggest that everyone needs to out there and break the law But people need to stop doing what everyone thinks they should do and start doing what makes them happy I enjoyed the twist that popped up in the middle of the drama with Berg and Jay With each page I passed by I really wanted to see what was going to happen with the story line and the main characters.I think this is a solid 4 star book The only reason this isn t a 5 star is because I felt like some of the dialog and writing was a bit repetitive But that didn t take me away totally from enjoying the story

    So good As with the previous two books in this series, I absolutely loved it The pacing was great, there was nice dry humour to lighten the very dark tone, and all the characters completed a satisfying arc from books one and two Berg in particular is fantastic I loved that she didn t completely go back to her old ways when she was at her lowest, and the ending leaves us with hope for her future The mystery wasn t as difficult to figure out as in the first book but there were still a few ni So good As with the previous two books in this series, I absolutely loved it The pacing was great, there was nice dry humour to lighten the very dark tone, and all the characters completed a satisfying arc from books one and two Berg in particular is fantastic I loved that she didn t completely go back to her old ways when she was at her lowest, and the ending leaves us with hope for her future The mystery wasn t as difficult to figure out as in the first book but there were still a few nice twists and turns My love for Jay was seriously tested, but there were so many other despicable characters I hatedcoughCarlacough Conversely, I liked Arenahere than in the last book, and I liked his friend Short, too This is just a fabulous series and I cannot recommend it highly enough

    Review BLOODLINES by Vanessa Skye Edge of Darkness 3 The conclusion to this trilogy is purely gritty police noir and close up underside of the crimes, sins, and failings of humanity Chicago Detective Alicia Raymond is living a life of multiple lies, and try as she might, happiness always eludes her She only seems to be effective at tracking criminals, but now it may be too late her rubber band existence may be near to snapping back at her with dangerous consequences.
