Great sequel to whats going to be an amazing series
This was a great sequel to continue on after Poison Princess, Non-stop action and we got a little more romance this time.
One of those rare occasions where i actually liked not only the main 'swoon worthy' guy Jackson but i ended up really enjoying the bad guy in this novel which is Death, couldn't help feeling for him and seeing his side of the story. Kresley Cole's writing is really enjoyable and I'm keen to continue on with this series with hopefully many more books to come.
Definitely recommend for any dystopian/end of the world fans.
Great follow up to Poison Princess!
Picking up where Poison Princess left us, Endless Knight starts with a bang! Evie has completely come into her Empress powers and is a force to reckoned with. Can the human cajun, Jackson cope with her supernatural destiny? Evies gang of Tarot characters have come to a truce to take out Death but its not going to be easy. Other characters like the Tower and Strength come into play and Death is still haunting Evies thoughts.
I loved how Evie has evolved since the first novel. Where she was once a cheerleader and model student, now shes the Empress poisoned spurs, magical blood and all. She knows that she has a part to play in the Arcana duel but wants things to end differently this time around. Forming a truce with Selena (The Moon), Matthew (The Fool) and Finn (the Magician), Evie hopes that Jackson will still stay true to his word and lead the misfit group to Evies grandmother for more information about past games.
Theres so much action in this book! More than once I was worried that Evie and her friends werent going to survive intact as a group. The new cards introduced were interesting and I liked to see their take on the game and their roles within it. The highlight for me was Death hes so much more than the devious voice in Evies head and finding out more about his and his history as a person and within the game was incredible. It really changed the game for me. I was a little surprised at just how ruthless characters are not just ones youd expect it from like Death, but Evie is definitely a little more brutal and cruel with the toll of the Flash and Death in her head taking its toll. Jackson is different from the first book and we get to see another side to the Cajun bad boy.
Romance wise this book does have some nice moments. Kresley Cole does write some sizzling male characters and some breathtaking romantic scenes. I fall in love with a new character every book I read of hers. Things advance and regress with her relationships and characters felt more realistic and less flawless because of some events.
I cant wait for the third book in the Arcana Chronicles especially after the cliff-hanger Endless Knight left us on! Im excited to see which other cards are introduced as well as what happens to the characters that I adore like Jackson and Death.
