In this seductive follow-up to Poison Princess, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole takes us deeper into the dark world of the Arcana Chronicles.
Evie has fully come into her powers as the Tarot Empress, and Jack was there to see it all. She now knows that the teens who've been reincarnat ...more
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
So I'm not sure where I want to start..........ummm...... Alright so I guess I'll just start by saying I have no idea how I feel about this book. First of all, I was shocked to the core, I always guessed there was more to the death and empress charade but what was revealed was way beyond what I had hoped for.
It's so nice to think you can sorta predict what will happen, then you are way way way off. I mean this is probably the only area in life where being absolutely w ...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.
“Or maybe I was learning that nothing was black and white.”
Finally embracing her own powers Evie goes on a hunt for allies to kill Death.
But sometimes the bad guys are not your enemy and your friends keep secrets from you.
In the sequel Evie is finally a likable character, her powers are awesome and the way she tries to save so many makes her in some way a “good” character.
The book wasn’t the best book I’ve read, but it was good in some way. The whole idea with the tarot cards was a ...more
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 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
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
October 2013.... /proceeds to tear hair out
Edit: THERE IS A MOTHER FREAKING BLURB. OH MY GOD.
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.
BTW, here's the link to the vid of the "Making of the Endless Knight cover" if anyone is interested: http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2013/05...

I really shouldn't have even picked this up. Whyyyyy. I think I was hoping maybe there was something redeeming in the second book because I hate giving books one star. But this series is just definitely not for me.
Jack was a complete jerk in the first book, but he somehow managed to get even worse here. BUT the best part is that now Evie's literally attracted to Death. And I... just can't even go into how unhealthy and messed up this lov ...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!
One player down. Twenty-one remain. The game has now officially ...more
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
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
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
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
Loved it! I don't know what team I'm on yet, but Death sure did make my heart go pitter patter. Jack still has my attention though as he obviously has Evie's.
This is such a creative and unique (at least to me) world Ms. Cole has created. Can't wait to see how this all plays out. Happy reading!
*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
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
I'm so confused.. utterly confused. WHO DO I SHIP NOW?
Endless Knight just mind fucked me guys. I'm so confused as to who I should believe and I also have no idea who I should be shipping Evie with. Jack was easy to love in the first book but now I have so many questions about him. Then there's Death who I didn't think I was going to fall in love with.. but damn, now I have. I haven't decided if he's my new favorite character because honestly, he's got some tough competition: Lar ...more

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.”
