Review: On The Edge by C.D. Reiss


On the Edge, the next intense installment in The Edge Series from New York Times bestselling author CD Reiss, is available now!


What it’s about:

“In Iraq, I promised you a bed of rose petals.” He grabbed my hand under the table, tightening his grip as if he were falling from a precipice and our connection was the only thing saving him from certain death.

“They were beautiful.”

“You smell like apples. Roses were wrong.” There was nothing soft about his tone, but his quiet words were for me alone. “I want everything to be right for you.”

“Caden, look at me.”

I caught his gaze and held it. He was confident. Arrogant. Sure he had a place in the world. And under that was the man who needed me to be that place.

“If I could…” He smiled and shook his head at a silly thought he wanted to dismiss but couldn’t—a contradiction in keeping with the whole man I married. “If I could write my love in the sky, it wouldn’t be big enough. I’d run out of room. I’d fall out of the air trying to say it all.”

He was saying it all.

Every day.

And he was falling out of the sky to do it.


My Thoughts:

On The Edge is the second installment of author C.D. Reiss’ The Edge series.  This delicious, dark tale explores the impact of mental health and PTSD on a couple’s marriage.  The complex and layered characters have me hooked on this series.

On The Edge is a typical mid-series installment in that it offers more clarification of the conflict and continues to increase the story tension without significant plot progression. However, in every other way, there is nothing typical about this story from C.D. Reiss!

Multiple narrators tell the story. Interestingly, two of the narrators are two personalities of one character who is experiencing mental health issues.  The stress of this situation on Greyson, the “third” narrator, is palpable.  Juggling being supportive spouse and trying to analyze her husband’s situation can’t be easy.  Add the further stress of trying to establish oneself in a post-military career might be the recipe for disaster.

Will fighting for her husband’s mental health break her?  Was the trigger war or childhood trauma?  Is Ronin really trying to be helpful?  Will Caden and Greyson’s new marriage survive?  Answers to these questions are sure to come as the series progresses, meanwhile, we readers anxiously await the answers, our pulse is elevated and we are in need of a hunky doctor’s care.
