Night's Edge (Hardcover)
“This one’s a killer.” —Erika T. Wurth, author of White Horse
Liz Kerin’s Night’s Edge is a sun-drenched novel about the darkest secrets we hide and how monstrous we can be to the ones we love most.
Having a mom like Izzy meant Mia had to grow up fast. No extracurriculars, no inviting friends over, and definitely no dating. The most important rule: Tell no one of Izzy’s hunger – the kind only blood can satisfy.
But Mia is in her twenties now and longs for a life of her own. One where she doesn’t have to worry about anyone discovering their terrible secret, or breathing down her neck. When Mia meets rebellious musician Jade she dares to hope she’s found a way to leave her home – and her mom – behind.
It just might be Mia’s only chance of getting out alive.
“Night’s Edge is a gruesome and surprisingly heartfelt page-turner.”—Alexis Henderson, author of House of Hunger

“A harrowing, electric, and wholly original take on vampires and the complexities of mother-daughter relationships. Night’s Edge is a gruesome and surprisingly heartfelt page-turner.” —Alexis Henderson, author of House of Hunger
“Night’s Edge is about vampires, yes. But it’s also about the kind of love we have for our mothers that pulls us apart, that makes us who we are, and the way in which we have to find our own path eventually, no matter how difficult—and potentially beautiful—that path might be. This one’s a killer.” —Erika T. Wurth, author of White Horse
“A morally gray and timely story that is bursting with Sookie Stackhouse vibes but will also appeal to fans of Catriona Ward and Zoje Stage.” —Booklist
"Kerin does not permit the obvious horror tropes to eclipse the themes of the novel she's writing. It's a terrific work."—Nightmare

“Night’s Edge delivers all the vampiric thrills you could wish for. But if you were raised by a single parent, or found yourself taking care of an ailing guardian, or just felt your blood pulling you towards an ever-complicating relationship of any kind, this book will captivate you, break your heart, and sing to you like an impossibly personal tribute.” —Nat Cassidy, author of Mary: An Awakening of Terror
“I read Night's Edge in two days and I’m jealous of anyone picking it up for the first time. Beware your heart; this book will make it race, make it stop, and ultimately break it to pieces.” —Jac Schaeffer, creator of WandaVision
