Endless Knight is the sequel to the phenomenal first book of The Arcana Chronicles from Kresley Cole. …. and I couldn’t have been more excited to read this, as I loved already the first book senselessly!
Ever Imagined all the players of a Tarot Card Deck Coming to live?
Set in a Dystopian world, Evie our main character has to learn that she is actually a part of an ancient and very gruesome game where all the players of a Tarot Deck come to live and have to fight each other until only one survives. Being completely along, the only one she trusts is Jack – a bad-ass kick ass mortal who she also fell in love with! (and oh Girls – Jack is completely swoon worthy hottness!) Now, Evie and Jack form alliances with other Tarot Players to fight against the ultimate and most dangerous card in the game “Death”….
I love love love this idea, it’s so unique and yet so amazing that I can hardly believe no one ever thought about this before! All these kids have different abilities and now they are left to fight for their lives!
Holy Hottness, and Holy Scaryness!
While Evie learns all about this in the first book, she now has to learn how to use her powers and needs to fight to survive. She forms some great alliances and all these characters are just awesomely developed. The plot itself is thrilling and so fast paced that you won’t have much time to catch your breath. There are some gruesome scenes and elements that scared the hell out of me, but the plot development is just outstanding.
I was fixed and glued to the pages, I never wanted to stop and I found myself coming home from work dropping everything just to read on and find out what happens next!
And in between all these we find the hottest and sexiest teenage romance ever! Even though this series is a YA one, it definitely is directed for the mature reader. Holy Cow, Kresley Cole most definitely knows how to write steamy and sexy scenes!!
The chemistry between Evie and Jack is sizzling and nearly palpable!
Death – is he really so evil?
Even though all characters are amazing, Death is the one character who stands out even more! Kresley Cole managed to create a character who is so complex, deep and contradicting that you cannot help but fall a little for the interesting player.
While Death is the ultimate evil in Poison Princess, we will have to rethink our opinion once we get to know him better. There is so much more about him that will make your heart ache so much and even if you do not want to, you will most definitely start slowly caring for him. Just like Evie! And here comes a Love Triangle I didn’t see coming, but makes sadly totally sense. I know that everyone is concerned about Love Triangles, but here? It’s done just perfect and we cannot help it but understand Evie’s feelings.
It’s amazingly played, it’s incredibly developed and I just love love love how deep and complex Kresley Cole created these characters!
Endless Knight by Kresley Cole was a brilliant and simply outstanding sequel that is filled with the most complex and deep characters in a story that is uniquely amazing. Hot ,sexy and kick ass this book leaves nothing to desire. So, all I can do is urge you to read this book, and if you haven’t yet – then GO and pick up The Poison Princess!
