When their worlds collide, X and Zoe are pushed to the edge of everything in this much-buzzed-about tour de force YA fantasy from Entertainment Weekly veteran Jeff Giles.

For the perfect love, what would you be willing to lose?

It's been a shattering year for seventeen-year-old Zoe, who's still reeling from her father's shocking death in a caving accident and her neighbors' mysterious disappearance from their own home. Then on a terrifying subzero, blizzardy night in Montana, she and her brother are brutally attacked in the woods--only to be rescued by a mysterious bounty hunter they call X.

X is no ordinary bounty hunter. He is from a hell called the Lowlands, sent to claim the soul of Zoe's evil attacker and others like him. X is forbidden from revealing himself to anyone other than his prey, but he casts aside the Lowlands' rules for Zoe. As they learn more about their colliding worlds, they begin to question the past, their fate, and their future. But escaping the Lowlands and the ties that bind X might mean the ultimate sacrifice for them both.

Gripping and full of heart, this epic start to a new series will bring readers right to the edge of everything.

I really enjoyed this book. It combines realism with elements of fantasy. The dialogue and the characters stick out in a good way. Overall, I would definitely recommend this book to others.

A review.

Its funniest line was "no one was watching". I wanted so badly to laugh at every tidbit of implied humour in the novel, but I think I exhausted my entire laughter supply in reading the aforementioned line, which probably was only being used as a minor sensory detail. Oh, well.

I suppose I'd recommend this to other people within my own age group seeing as it reads as a generic YA fiction novel would, but seeing as I kept comparing it to fanfiction published on the likes of Quotev, I probably would do so with either condescension, sarcasm, or caution.
