As Brett Andrews, owner of the famous club On The Edge, reaches the big 'four-O,' he has one request and one question for his two vampire lovers, Leo and Lisa: he doesn't want them to organize any sort of celebration for him – but he does want to know why neither of them has ever mentioned the possibility of turning him into a vampire.
The question finds an answer, and the three of them share a promise for the year to come. His request, on the other hand, is doomed from the start as they already have plans for the big day: they have a gift for him to match presents he offered each of them, and the party they planned with help from a couple of friends promises to be something special.
Vampire Anando and his human lover Virginia met at On The Edge. They are friends and occasional lovers of Leo, Brett and Lisa. When asked, they gladly accept to host the big-bash birthday party – and the private after-party, too. A good time is had by all, but the last gift is only revealed a few weeks later, to be delivered after nine months.
With both humans in love with vampires, neither expected a child in their future. As for the vampires, they knew for a fact that they'd never become parents. For all five, once the first shock has passed, decisions have to be made. Will this new adventure strengthen bonds of love and friendship, or will it tear lives apart?

A GraveTells Review: Kinky, emotional, and unexpectedly poignant Parts of this were really emotional and even unexpected (Brett freaking kills me and Leo makes me smile). The story covers a pretty good chunk of time (from before the pregnancy to after the birth) and explores the various emotional possibilities of a situation where a child is shared between two groups of lovers. Adding in the fact that more than half of them are vampires gives Beyond the Edge extra dimension. Some parts were slow but overall I really enjoyed this book. It has heat and menage, but don't read it for that. Read it for the journey of these two "couples" as they come together to be a family in truth.
SPLENDIFEROUS!!! Rating: 5 Heat Rating : 5 out of 5 When I first learned that Kallysten was writing Beyond The Edge I was totally ecstatic. I love all the characters involved in the two series that would be combined in this new novel - Out of the Box & On The Edge. After about 20 short stories, flash fiction pieces, novellas, and novels revolving around Virginia, Anando, Lisa, Brett and Leo, the characters have become my close friends. I mean, Kallysten can breathe life into her characters not only by writing about them but by making you want to jump into the pages and join them in their struggles and trials. Anyways, after I got over the fact that Virginia was having a baby (way to advertise that with the cover Kally :P) I started to think that maybe this time Kallysten wouldn't it be able to pull it off. I have no idea where the doubts came from but they were utterly ridiculous because Kally pulled off out all the stops with this one and it was utterly fantastic! I mean, I'm talking absolutely splendiferous! I liked this book so much that I have no idea where to start and how to keep this review from being pages long LOL. Let's start with my emotions. Beyond The Edge managed to spark nearly every emotion in my being. I was happy, sad (I cried but then I'm a sap) surprised, pissed and as expected, horny as hell. My heart ached because of what the characters were going though. At one point I actually yelled out "WHAT!?!" And Leo? OMG I was so proud of him in this book! Also, you know that feeling of supreme satisfaction you get after reading something amazing? Yup! That was me as I read the last words of this story. Lisa has always been the hardest character for me to connect with and it was no different in this book. She totally ticked me off. Talk about a drama queen! She did redeem herself by the end of the novel though. But man, she really made me mad - even disgusted. Kallysten's ability to elicit such strong emotions from her readers is absolutely amazing. While the general story arc was as I expected in Beyond The Edge, Kallysten managed to twist the events so that they were new, fresh, interesting, exciting and surprising. But of course, how could she not have? Vampires with human children? A child that was creating during group sex? These types are topics aren't exactly the norm in paranormal erotic reads. Kallysten's creativity and imagination is astounding. Like I said earlier, Kallysten has written tons of stories that involve the five characters in this book. While I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to read all of these stories (technically you only need to read three novels – Tales from the Edge, Out of the Box - Complete Series and Living Out of the Box) it is not necessary to read them before you read beyond the edge. Kallysten provides enough back-story to prevent any confusion. However, by reading the other books first you will be able to create an amazing emotional connection to the characters therefore enabling you to feel the utterly complete feeling of bliss that this book initiated in me. I got a say that this book is a MUST READ. It evokes tons of emotion and is hot as hell. It lets you feel what true love, friendship and devotion is supposed to be like. * Warning.
