In this brilliant s equel to Life On The Edge,we find Emily, Chris and Sergei in Russia for an important competition, but when Chris injures his shoulder, the first of their career, they have to disqualify themselves from the competition.  He finds out he'll need extensive therapy  before Worlds, but will need surgery afterwards.

Not being able to skate leaves Emily and Sergei plenty of time for sightseeing and spending time with Sergei's parents and visiting Sergei's former skating rink.  When they literally bump into Elena, the past comes and causes major fears for both Emily and Sergei and makes Emily doubt her relationship with Sergei. 

When both Sergei and Emily come face to face with his daughter he never thought he'd see, Emily fights her fears of ever having a future with Sergei and Elena's animosity towards her.

Sergei is able to convince Elena to bring Liza to Boston, so she can spend time with him and have some skating lessons, as she had been skating earlier in New York.  When an incident occurs in Boston, Emily is devastated and breaks her engagement to Sergei instead of fighting to keep their relationship strong. 

Emily and Chris have to fight insurmountable challenges to get through Worlds, but in the end, things happen to make them stronger.

I can hardly wait for the third and final volume of this excellently written look at the highs and lows of a figure skating team.  I highly recommend both of these books.

I give this book 5 stars.

I  received my PDF copy from Kathy.
