On The Ragged Edge Of The World by Jamie Craig

This story starts in Calendar Boys-October: Trick Of Silver, and picks up a week or two after the end of the first book.

On The Ragged Edge Of The World hits a lot of my genres, it is well done Urban Fantasy complete with werewolf politics, werewolf hunters, etc. And it is D/s erotica. It is also M/m, which technically isn't my thing, but the D/s is well done enough that it works for me quite well. Notice I'm not calling it BDSM... it has a little of the the B (being cuffed to the bed a few times), but it's mostly a D/s love story all wrapped up in an Urban Fantasy werewolf story.

You really do need to read the Calendar Boys short for the book to mean as much, though.

Here's the blurb:

Darren Sumner spent fifteen years hunting werewolves, a member of the elite organization Argenti. But one night of betrayal sent him from his Argenti family to the arms of werewolf Aden Richter--one of the most powerful Alphas in Washington D.C. Neither can deny their passion or their hunger for the other, but as Darren tries to find his place in this new world, he wonders whether desire can be enough. Rumors of an upcoming power struggle between the packs bring the question of Darren's role to the forefront. Is he Aden's partner and a leader of the pack? Or is he nothing more than Aden's lover, placed outside his family? Darren struggles to prove himself as the tensions between the packs mount and Aden's ex-lover puts a plan of vengeance into action.

I'll give both books a 9 of 10, and the series a 9 of 10.

Calendar Boys-October: Trick Of Silver: Rating 9 of 10
On The Ragged Edge Of The World: Rating 9 of 10
Series Rating: 9 of 10

It was an enjoyable read, with well developed characters, nice dialogue, and good pacing. Can't ask for much more than that.
