The world she developed from the first book in this series is still as intriguing as it is complex. Zaira and Aden are flawed characters, they have emotional depth and have a unique way to get under my skin. They took me by the hand in this rollercoaster story of action adventure and scintilating romance.
I just love returning to the psy-changeling series. After so many stories it feels like returning home.

As I only just now started this series I was surprised the dynamic between Eve and Roarke is reminiscent of Gideon/Eva and other millionair/star crossed lover couples. The suspense was interesting and overall I gobbled up Naked In Death. A solid read.
3.5 stars. Loved this book and the characters but the storyline lost some of its powerful emotions due to repetitiveness in characterization. The musi3.5 stars.

ARC Review; Kresley Cole - Endless Knight ENDLESS KNIGHT picks up right after the events in POISON PRINCESS and I quickly connected again with Evie, JARC Review; Kresley Cole - Endless Knight ENDLESS KNIGHT picks up right after the events in POISON PRINCESS and I quickly connected again with Evie, Jack, Selena, Finneas and Matthew. From the first page the tension between the characters is tangible and the foes that lurk in every dark corner are very dangerous.
I am not a zombie fan. I don’t watch The Walking Dead as I can hardly stomach all the gore. However, I was drawn in by the high octane suspense of Gunthrie and his flesh eating followers. The allies and adversaries of Evie, and the battle that is played between the Arcana cards, is providing a page turner of a story! The reader is pulled in to the battle by Kresley Cole’s imaginative writing style and appealing characters. The threat, which lies everywhere, hums throughout the pages and kept me on my toes. The love I have for this series lies not only in the fact that the world building is detailed but also that I have no clue what’s coming. Every chapter reveals new information or thrusts the characters in to new dangers to overcome, surprising me at every turn. It brings new light or deepens the interpersonal relationships between the main characters; Evie, Jackson, Death, Selena, Finneas and Matthew.
The plot twists made me gasp, there were layers upon layers to unravel with each character and I couldn’t get enough of it. Why did Evie and Jack ‘do it’? I expected slow burn kisses, taking it step by step but emotions combined with their attraction were an explosive combination and they were going for it. All.The.Way!! It baffled me a bit but as I read the chapters away a game changer was revealed that connected the dots for me. It put a new perspective on everything. The connections Kresley Cole is weaving between the characters, both allies and adversaries, is formidable.
Evie’s life and emotions are in turmoil. After the Flash its survival of the canniest and the strongest. Evie’s still discovering her powers as The Empress as she needs to fight off many enemies like the Bagman, an army and other Arcana. I love the complexity of her external circumstances. Everything she does, every decision she makes and all she feels is portrayed for the reader to absorb.
Selena is still tough-as-nails. Matthew is vague as ever. Finn is still a charmer and Jackson is still the coolest guy on the block. Changes are coming for all of them and some changes reeled me on my axes. New characters also come in to play. Like Lark, quirky but with a certain humor, I enjoyed her role in Endless Knight. Death however rocked me to my core. He is the enemy, the one to defeat. Evil to the core and scheming every minute of the day. Or so I thought in Poison Princess.
Kresley Cole equals formidable characters, they brim the story with their electric personalities, as did Death. Kresley Cole hit my weakness for bad-boys with heart. Death is still dangerous to the core but I was shown a side to him that surprised me. An even greater surprise was that in the end I liked him, a lot!! Perhaps some readers might think; Oh no, what the hell?! But I was all; Oh yes!! Give me more!!
The story contains pulls pounding action scenes but also takes time to unfold background stories of various characters. Main and supporting characters weren’t just there on paper, they came alive in my mind, keeping my attention at an all-time high. It was no surprise that I read this book cover to cover in one day. This is something only a story can do if I’m fully emotional invested. Something Kresley Cole can do like no other!
Kresley Cole set the bar real high with POISON PRINCESS but she shattered it for me with ENDLESS KNIGHT. It is all there; edge of your seat suspense, characters to connect and root for, game changing plot twists and a breathtaking love. I will never look at my Tarot cards the same! The Arcana Chronicles is a Young Adult series to savor, page by page.
With a shrug, I reached for my jeans. “If you can’t take the heat, stay out of the cabin.” He swallowed audibly. “Brûlant.” Sizzling hot. “And believe me, cher, I plan to take that heat.”
You likin’ ole Jack now?” “I never stopped liking you. Even when you were warding me away with the power of Catholicism.” “Can’t help the way I was raised—anything supernatural is supposed to be either a miracle or satanic.” I rolled my eyes. “And you’re still trying to figure out which I am?” “Non. I’m trying to figure out if I’m still Catholic.” He grinned that heart-stopping grin
There was French kissing, and then there was Cajun French kissing. Spicier, harder, wilder.
That’s how it was with Jackson. Burning out of control. Probably just as destructive as an inferno. And I didn’t care.
If Jack had awakened my desire, Death was enlivening my mind, attracting me in a way I’d never experienced before....more
Review; Amy Lane - Forever Promised THIS REVIEW CAN CONTAIN A SPOILER! It was a nice read, loved to read up on all the characters again. However, therReview; Amy Lane - Forever Promised THIS REVIEW CAN CONTAIN A SPOILER! It was a nice read, loved to read up on all the characters again. However, there were too many story threads, too much drama and lack of depth. I loved the fact Benny carried a baby for Crick and Deacon but since the focus was scattered between a multitude of characters I couldn't get completely invested in to it. I loved every book in this series, Keeping Promise Rock will forever remain one of my all time favorite MM stories and while Forever Promised gave me a dose of each beloved couple in this series I would've enjoyed it more if Crick and Deacon were the main focus. A nice finish to an incredible series....more
