Follow-up to Black and White, Knife Edge is another great book! There were many references to the events that happened in the previous book mentioned. The world in which the story takes place hasn't changed except for the characters, Jude and Sephy, are dealing with the death of one whom they both loved and knew in different ways. The story is told through the eyes of varying people throughout rather than just the two in the first book. This one also had me hooked from beginning to end. I love that we get insight to Jude, who is definitely someone who is troubled and who we love to hate. He is one you don't know whether you should hate or feel sorry for. It is quite interesting to see how both his and Sephy's lives are forever changed by a single event that happened at the end of the previous book. The fate of these two is destined to intertwine and the outcome will leave you at the edge of your seat. Their lives couldn't have been more different and more the same.
Though this book could definitely be read without having read the first one, it is apart of a trilogy and I strongly recommend reading the previous one first as it will help readers to see the big picture. There aren't as many twists as the first but it has its shocking, jaw-dropping moments that makes reading it worth it. The author does a great job at evoking emotion from the reader. This book is written beautifully and was very poetic to me. I don't see how anyone could not get lost in this story and I will definitely finish reading this series.
