Review – ‘Wicked Edge’ by Nina Bangs


After another attempt to enliven the heavenly halls, the angel Passion is sent to Earth to tame her naughty nature—by bringing goodness and light to the sinful Castle of Dark Dreams, the adult fantasy playground. There she finds herself cast in the role of virgin bait to trap a marauding demon. Passion thinks the game is harmless until she sees the man playing the demon. His name is Edge, and Passion senses darkness in him beyond any she’s ever dreamed. 

Edge may play a demon, but he is something much worse. His past is littered with pain and destruction, and that’s the way he likes it. Now he must prove to himself and others that he is what he’s always been: cold and emotionless. But as danger threatens and his need for Passion heats up, he finds himself balanced on love’s wicked edge...


In the fifth book of the Castle of Dark Dreams series, Edge, a seriously HOT cosmic troublemaker, deals in death but is bored with his job. He follows the rules for the most part, but a strange urge forces him to lash out and hurt people. He can’t stop it. Ganymede and Sparkle, two other troublemakers who live and work with him at the Castle of Dark Dreams, a role-playing attraction at the Live the Fantasy theme park, are suffering the same unexplainable urges.
Passion is an angel sent to earth in her human form as punishment for trying to have fun and liven up bland, boring Heaven. She’s tasked with saving the corrupt souls at the castle, but all the irredeemable creatures overwhelm her. Especially Edge. He’s the darkest, deadliest, and sexiest man she’s ever met, but beneath his cold exterior, she finds the heart of someone worth saving.
Though I figured out who the villain was early on, a few other characters surprised me. Most of the regular cast is back (with the exception of Eric, Brynn, Conall, and their ladies) and some new characters appear. Zane the Sorcerer, Bain, and Murmur were very compelling, and Zane connection to Holgarth is awesome. We finally get to meet the Big Boss, Bourne. Totally awesome!
The twist at the end didn’t surprise me, but the battle leading up to the “Ahhhhh, that makes sense!” moment kept my eyes glued to the page. The scenes flow smoothly despite the head hopping. I enjoyed the story (my second favorite in the series), and I’m glad I read it.
4 Stars
