There was something strange about Melissa’s friend’s death.  After checking with other friends, she pairs with Daniel to find the killer.  What they find could cost them their lives.

The seventh book in the Urban Seductions series, Edge of Ecstasy, was a little bit different than the previous books in this series as it delved more into the actions of the Tribunal and Assassins.  Both Melissa and Daniel are Assassins that have strict codes of honor and are working together to find the killer, since it is pretty obvious it has to be someone within their world and not a human.

There are layers, such as Assassins, Sharp-shooters, Enforcers, Special Ops, Trackers and Retrievers, with guidelines set by the Tribunal within the world of witches and wizards. The author goes into some detail about the rules for Assassins, as both Daniel and Melissa take steps as lovers then as partners.  

I loved the way the two of them teased each other, as they realized they were meant to be together, as they merged when they made love.  Figuring out how to be partners as Assassins was their biggest problem. The chemistry is obviously hot between them. 

Lots of characters from some of the previous books show up, along with some new ones. I felt bad for Hayden and I would like to see how he manages to cope with what happened.  I had to laugh at Will because he just has that bulldog attitude when it comes to those he likes and works with, and we see more of that in this story.

The way the storylines continue in several books, this series needs to be read in order.  Each story adds to the reader’s knowledge about the relationships of the witches, wizards and humans.
