Book Description
Publication Date: April 15, 2015
Diana Pharaoh Francis delivers a downright terrific read.” —Devon Monk, nationally Bestselling Author of Hell Bent on Trace of Magic

“A vividly written world of magic and kick-ass action.” —D. B. Reynolds, author of the Vampires in America Series

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.
And a pound of flesh.

Magical tracking expert Riley Hollis is on a mission to save five teenagers lost inside a mountain. But nothing is what it seems, and soon Riley finds herself bruised, bloodied, and embroiled in a battle to bring down a sadistic criminal dealing in human souls and the darkest of magics.

Her only hope may be to swallow her pride and ask for help from her not-quite-ex-boyfriend and his notorious brother—Tyet criminal boss, Gregg Touray. Even that may not be enough to protect her. Something has gone very wrong in the trace dimension and in Riley’s head.

If she doesn’t figure out how to handle the past, the present, the trace, and the bad guys, the road to hell is going to look like a great alternative.

Diana Pharaoh Francis is the acclaimed author of a dozen novels of fantasy and urban fantasy. Her books have been nominated for the Mary Roberts Rinehart Award and RT’s Best Urban Fantasy. Edge of Dreams is the second in her exciting new urban fantasy series—The Diamond City Magic novels.

I was given a copy of this book by Netgalley for an honest review.

EDGE OF DREAMS is a fast paced and fun read. The characters and the world building are fantastic. I loved this book and cannot wait to read the next. Riley is asked to find five teenagers who have gone into the mines. These mines are where they mine Sparkle Dust. A drug that is very powerful and addictive. If you take too much, you will turn into a wraith and eventually disappear. She does not expect one of her own to turn on her. Now she must get out of the mines before she gets addicted to Sparkle dust and kill the one responsible in making it.  I love Riley and her determination to break boundaries with her magic, and learning she can do more than she expected. I recommend this book and series to everyone.  I give EDGE OF DREAMS 5/5 STARS.
