      I was given an ARC of The Edge of God for an honest review.It’s a witty, engaging story that takes place on several planets that have issues getting along. The descriptions of scenery allow you to be there, right in the moment, with the characters.Imeyo is the daughter of a political powerhouse on the planet Gaya. She was a kind, intelligent child who believed in God and was possessed with keen insight into the plight of others less fortunate than herself. She had a driving need to become an A [...]

      This excellent book doesn't fit in any genre. It is funny and sad, erotic and romantic, wise and thougtful, set on a far away planet it isn't really a science fiction, parallels with Earth and certain celebrities intended.A book that will make you think about yourself, your live, love and God.There are so many distinct characters, some more lovable, some less, all well developed, this different world is discribed so skillfully that after some pages you'll feel "at home".I want to thank Michael f [...]

      The action of this story takes place in what at first seems to be a parallel universe to ours. Several planets operate in uncomfortable coalition creating political, military and economic tensions. These are all described in a ‘reportage’ style, but none of them really impacts the central plot, which concerns a female called Iyemo, youngest scion of a monied, strict and influential family on the dominant planet.Iyemo is a ‘bad girl’, a party-animal, a rebel and an embarrassment to the fa [...]

      Iyemo, spoiled brat and daughter of one of the universe’s most powerful leaders, is sent on a planet much less advanced than her own to do repairs. Albeit a brilliant and inventive engineer, she does little more than fix toilets, at least for starters. That, and sleep with boys from various other galaxies, almost simultaneously, given the fairly frequent frenzied pace of this novel. She is, in fact, more assiduous with sex than she is with work. Despite her immaturity, she’s got a heart of [...]

      Edge of God is a very ambitious book. It clocks in at a whopping 637 pages, which is a monumental undertaking in a world often reduced to 140-character bites. Why so long? In part because it tackles some pretty big issues. While it's billed as a romance, it is actually more of a sci-fi Bildungsroman with elements of romance, religion, political and social commentary thrown in.The story follows the adventures of Iyemo as she takes the scenic route toward self-discovery. In the beginning, she is q [...]

      I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I'm just going to jump into my review here and start with the big problems. I did not like the character at all. Iyemo is spoiled, entitled, and whiny. Instead of trying to make the best of her situation, she blows off her new job, parties and then complains when she gets in trouble. The "why me" song and dance gets old, especially after doing stupid stuff, like posing naked for one of her boyfriends, (yes, I said boyfriends) a man [...]

      Reviewed by: Annie ArcaneActual Rating: 2.5 starsA free copy was provided by the author.Initial thoughts:A lengthy sci-fi novel with a large cast. Attempts to address much more than just romance.What I loved:This book was extremely ambitious.The author tried to accomplish a great deal and I must commend the effort he put forth. Lewis went so far as to create an entirely foreign language. That is an impressive feat, in and of itself.While I wasn't personally fond of Iyemo, she was well-developed [...]

      Edge of God is a sometimes snarky, sometimes emotional, romantic and humorous romp through the universe.Edge of God is also a story of redemption.The story follows the very promiscuous Kozi Iyemo and her exploits as a rebellious young woman born into a wealthy and politically powerful family. Highly intelligent, with a degree in Astronautical Engineering, Iyemo struggles with her personal demons while those demons are exploited and publicly enlarged due to her high-profile family ties.Finding it [...]

      Starrily sexy aren't the accurate words to describe this book, even though it was set in the stars and it was about a sexually-active alien girl. I'd say that this story is about the path that many teenagers we know have gone through. There is a time when we don't know what the universe is, why it is, and what it's for, and I dare they who say they don't care for the main character to answer these questions. I definitely care for the main character. She was an ungrateful young kid with plenty of [...]

      A rich entitled sexually-rebellious woman travels to a far-off land and discovers that the colony has a bunch of slaves and does things differently than the rest of civilization. Is this a tale of Americas? Africa? Middle East? No, this is the story of two planets Gaya Prime and Gutaki and two people from incredibly different backgrounds: Kozi Iyemo and Gomi. Iyemo is the daughter of the most powerful human being in universe - Kozi Maretho - who sits in the planet Gaya’s main council as Suprem [...]

      I’m a Michael Patrick Lewis fan. This is the third book of his I’ve read. He’s a talented writer who mixes both philosophical and very human insights (or in this case aliens) with a sharp writing style. His characters are always so real, both likeable and flawed, they almost jump off the page. I really enjoyed the Edge of God. It’s definitely a soul book with spiritual yearning at its heart. The rich stew of musings about every aspect of life, often tongue in cheek, at times almost tripp [...]
