Endless Knight picks up directly where Poison Princess left off—Evie completing her first kill by taking out Arthur, the Alchemist, with Jack, Selena, Finn, and Matthew there to witness her in all her Red Witch glory. But Arthur is only one foe down, there are many, many more of them. And getting the heck out of Requiem, Tennessee and getting to her grandmother has become priority number one. But, as most things in Evie's life are, it won't be easy. Militia, cannibals, slavers, bagmen—not to men...more
I can't. Is that Death there holding Evie? I'm sorry but I've had a thing for him since Poison Princess okay? Okay. I have a feeling that Jack is the Judgement card. Because when Jack rescued Evie from the redneck militia, he looked very angry and she said something like "his face promised pain and judgement." Anyhoo, Please excusez-moi while I go on a hiatus. Wake me up when september ends.
So I am done with Endless Knight, sequel to Poison Princess. What do I think of it?
I don't know what happened. Poison Princess was amazing. Absolutely awesome in every single way. Incredible to the point where I actually compared Kresely Cole to the Pope on my blog (http://rattlethestars.com/2013/10/01/...). And for a homegrown Irish Catholic girl, that's a big deal yo. So this book's epic fail is just a knife twisting deeper and deeper into my soul.
I was a little shocked at Jackson's reaction to Evie. I knew he would be taken back by the Arcana'a powers but not that it would keep him from Evie. It did help that Finn's duplicity was revealed but it s ...more
I really liked it, but I also didn't. It was all so nonsensical yet somehow it managed to be rather entertaining.
-The plot was essentially just a bunch of good-looking-angsty-teenagers-with-powers running around, fighting, and hiding from: 1. Other good-looking-angsty-teenagers-with-powers 2. Weird-zombie-like-creatures-called-Bagmen 3. Creepy-hypnotized-cannibals and 4. Rapey-militia-men-whose-leaders-consisted-of-two-teenage-perverts. Yea… so it was all a load of teenage angsting and n ...more

Edit 2: COVER. COVER. COVER. GUYS, THERE IS A COVER AND IT IS GLORIOUS. And the release date is October 1st, I'm going to go mark my calendar now.

Hmmm, this is a really hard one. Why? Because I really do not like this series. Honestly the premise never appealed to me and the only reason I started it was because several people on GR had mentioned a certain character named "Death" on their "books with hot bad boys"-type of YA lists. When I finished the first book I was angry because he barely made an appearance and I had no investment in the characters because I couldn't stand Evie, and Jackson even less. Nevertheless I kept seeing ...more
UPDATE: May 24th 2013
Okay, I... I don't like that cover. AT ALL. The first one was beyond grand, magnificent and pure hotness! This?? This gives me the creeps. Plus: WHERE THE HECK IS MY JACKSON?!?!
GIVE ME THE DAMN BOOK!
I'm can't wait to give my first actual review and pray I can get this out without spoiling anything in this delightful novel. (Though there might be spoilers for people who haven't read the first book.)
Endless Knight was a wonder book to me, just like Poison Princess was. I'd always enjoyed post-apocalyptic scenarios, tarot card ...more

WHY must this be so predictable and formulaic?!
WHY can I not have ONE series where the protagonist falls in love with the "wrong" person?!
LOOK AT HOW VOLDEMORT TURNED OUT JUST BECAUSE NOBODY EVER LOVED HIM. Death is just another Voldemort in the making and any evil in him shall be on YOUR HANDS Evie/Kresley.
Also, more importantly, I was in love with this series. I believed that it could be one of the best of it's genre but THEN Evie had to turn out like EVERY OTHER NAUSEATINGLY ANNO ...more
While I absolutely loved Poison Princess, I’m not sure if Endless Knight was just as good or even better, but it is definitely close and this book series is one of the best YA paranormal series I have read. The incredible characters and the story itself are so unique and extremely addictive. Kresley Cole has a gift for storytelling and kept me riveted and hanging by the edge of my seat. There is a lot of action in this and a good dose of roma ...more
*Spoiler free review*
* Buddy read with Den & Ella<3*
Although, YA and dystopia genres as well as "Hunger Game" kind of plot aren't my cup of tea I really loved Poison Princess, the first book in this series.
I have mixed feelings about this one.
Even though you can predict from the beginning of the book that there will be a cliffhanger and despite some roll eyes moments, I really liked the first half of the book but not so much the second one. And not because of the cliffy but b ...more
Going into POISON PRINCESS I couldn’t help thinking Young Adult—this is going to suck, but Kresley Cole’s writing quickly won me over to Evie’s side, and then Emma Galvin sealed the deal with her mesmerizing narration. And now, here I am, completely committed to this series, and putting my stamp of approval on book 2. The characters show a level of maturity that I never expected from this genre, and there was even a sex scene in this installment. Yes folks, don’t let the ...more
On plot and pacing alone this should have been an easy 4 star read. I started it yesterday afternoon, and finished it in time to tuck myself in bed fairly early.
The first book was cool, and had the catchy gimmick of Evie recounting her story to a guy who had drugged her tea. From his POV you got that he was a serial killer who had nasty plans for her in the future. So for the entire book, you were sitting on pins and needles waiting for the drugs to kick in, and for him ...more
Especially since I LOVED the first book and was so eagerly anticipating for this one. *le sigh* Everything that I loved from the first book was missing in this one. Instead we get Evie (who I thought was such a badass on the the 1st book) become the ultimate pin-up poster girl for the "YA Female Cliche Foundation-
Seriously!?! This series could have been amazi ...more
Except, surprisingly, it didn't ruin this reading experience for me.
Endless Knight is the second book in Kresley Cole's new young adult series, the first being Poison Princess. In this installment, Evie, the Empress, has just killed the Alchemist card, showcasing her terrifying talents to the boy she loves: Jack. However, Death still taunts her, promising her a gruesome and harrowing death by his hands. When Deat ...more
What I liked:
Death (like, a lot, if he had been in the first book it would have been so much better)
The idea upon which the book is based
What I hated:
ALL THE REST.
SPOILERS: you have been warned.
Evie: "Oh he has seen me go all crazy, he doesn't love meeeee" *cries like a baby* *cries more*
Evie: "I'm such a bamf, I'm going to end you muahahah"
Me: "shit she is bipolar"
Jack: *drinks* *drinks some more*
Finn: "Yeah you were totally crazy, but you ...more

As for the one in this book, I'm torn between who I'm rooting for. From the start I adored Death in that..."tortured hero someone make him happy PLEASE" way. BUT, Jack has his own appeal. He's loyal, he's protective, he's suave in his Cajun ways.
What makes Death and Jack realistic is that they both have major character flaws coupled w ...more
Endless Knight is heart stopping, breath holding, rapid firing page turning (I literally ripped a page out I got so excited-I haven’t read paper books for a while) adventure full of excitement made from forced alliances versus certain death. Fighting to stay alive against Bagman ( ...more
"You hurt her and I'll kill you!" Blood poured from his wrists. "I swear to Christ, I'll gut you!"
The dialogue is what sets Cole apart from other- smart, quick, and flows so naturally. I am convinced that Jackson is actually an Arcana card; he is definitely more than meets the eye. I really liked that Cole didn't gloss over the sex scene be ...more
You all know how nerve racking it can be to go into a sequel, the whole dreaded second book syndrome? Well, I for one was especially nervous to read Endless Knight because I absolutely loved Poison Princess, and I really didn ...more
I do not want to read this book. I was more frustrated with Poison Princess than I've ever been with a book. If it had ended, actually ended and not used a cliffhanger as a cheap trick to get me to read on, I can assure you that this book would go unread. Perhaps that was Cole's motivation?
