Rose Drayton ekes out a living for her two little brothers and herself in The Edge, a place most people don't know about because it sits between two very different worlds: The Broken and The Weird. The Broken, to most people, is a world without magic; a world where cars are normal transportation and WalMart is the place to shop. The people here are oblivious to the other worlds, for the most part. The Weird is magic. They have no cars, travel by horses or mules and carts, and most of the people there would die trying to cross into The Broken because they, too, are magical. Some of those people have so much magic that they cannot even cross into the Edge. Many of the Edgers, though, will cross the boundaries into the other two for work, as paying jobs weren't prevalent because The Edge was a wild and poor area. But too much time spent in one or the other, and you couldn't cross backů
From official release/information:
Product Description: The Broken is a place where people shop at Wal-Mart and magic is nothing more than a fairy tale.
The Weird is a realm where blueblood aristocrats rule and the strength of your magic can change your destiny.
Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, the place between both worlds. A perilous existence indeed, made even more so by a flood of magic-hungry creatures bent on absolute destruction.
