I’m safe in the ivory tower Gabriel Miller made for me. That’s what he says. Enemies lurk outside, waiting to strike. An army of enemies held back by these walls.

Except some animal instinct warns me the danger is much closer. It’s already here. Is Gabriel Miller my protector or my enemy? Is this house a castle or a cage?

If you know me you know that Skye Warren is my DROP EVERYTHING and RUN author. Her books are pure kindle crack to me and the only thing making it better is her next 5 star book. And OMG does The Castle deliver. I absolutely FLOVED this book. Ms. Warren is such an intelligent writer that she can tie small nuances together from the first book with the third and final book in the series and your left stuttering and mindblown as it all makes sense!

If you've read the previous two books you know that

descriptionI LOVE this cover. It is nice to see a romance book once in awhile have a creative cover that doesn't involve half naked people. This one is a fantastic representation of the story found within. The author has a theme that continues through all three covers. So nice unity within the series. The typography is eye-catching and interesting. That said he loses a star for the author's name being larger than the title.description

An unforgettable dark masterpiece. I literally couldn't put this down. Everything about this series is perfect!!!! The hot scenes, the mystery, the violence.

In this final book, Gabriel tries to protect his queen by keeping her in his castle surrounded by guards. She's in great danger, and Gabriel does everything in his power to destroy the threat. But there is a problem. How do you catch

The Castle by Skye Warren is the third installment in The Endgame Series.
This is not a stand-alone and I recommend to read the other books in this series: The Pawn and The Knight, first.
Avery James is safe in the house Gabriel Miller settled her in. But she doesn´t know anymore if this is a castle or a cage. She feels and is trapped.
This book is written in dual POV. The Cover is to die for and the plot and characters are a 5 from 5.
There is scorching hot sex, twists and turns I never- Never had

This was my favorite book in the series. Skye Warren outdid herself with this book. It is safe to say that The Castle is her best work up to date. For me at least. The writing is so expressive, rich and vibrant that you get hooked from the first page.

If you follow my reviews, it is no mystery that Skye Warren's 'Endgame' series has become my latest addiction. There was something about Gabriel and Avery's story that drew me in, right from the start. What can I say...I love an uber-Alpha a$$hole! Gabriel Miller did not disappoint in that regard.

After the way 'The Pawn' ended, is it any wonder I was hooked? It blew me away! For me, this series is about as addictive as crack cocaine. I can't wait to get my next fix and when I get my next "hit"

A Love Letter to Skye Warren…..Maybe more like a Crazy Fan-Girl Letter….Same thing.

Ok, this should be a book review for The Castle. But let’s be honest. Everyone KNOWS The Castle was brilliant, and if you don’t, then you should obviously read it (After The Pawn & The Knight). But what I really want to do is write a love letter to Skye Warren. Because I’m in luuuurve with her. Ok, not really….Well, maybe a little.

True story. And usually the mere thought of a trilogy is enough to make me break out in hives. Why? Because I'll usually find book two to be more filler, and I'm pretty much bored and uninterested by book three. So you may be asking yourself, why on earth did this crazy heife

I'm high on adrenaline right now! What a series Skye Warren has created. The Castle was spectacular just like it's two predecessors. I won't give any of the plot away because you simple have to read it from the beginning The Pawn to truly appreciate what a fabulous story this is.
The Castle picks up right where The Knight ended and what can I say? These characters have come so far and still I got to see and experience so much from Avery and Gabriel. He's her protector but also the only one she so

A sexy, sophisticated, and intoxicating romance that blends passion, eroticism, and suspense in a spellbinding and visceral manner. Skye Warren continues to have me mesmerized as she layers the The Endgame Series with so much intrigue, grit, and mystery. As each layer of secrets are unraveled and revealed, Warren has readers like myself begging for more and not wanting the game of Gabriel and Avery to end.

3 - 3.5 for this book...4 for the entire series...

This last installment lost a little steam, sadly.


The urgency and excitement more present in the previous books was missing here...not to mention the fact that the supposed "reason" for this whole shebang - which was finally introduced in the last book - was further...explored in this book - and it was just as underwhelming as I had expected it to be following its big "reveal."

What a fantastic end to a fabulous series!

I can always tell Skye Warren’s writing. It has a wicked and dangerous quality that draws in the reader and immerses them in a world of depravity and desperation. Where men are gods of the underworld and rule by might alone. Where only women who are smart and tenacious survive. Her writing pulls me under and wraps me in a blanket of darkness that I welcome.

The Castle had all of these fantastic qualities and was the perfect finale to Gabriel and Avery’s

The moment that I started reading the first book in the Endgame series I was hooked. I have loved every single thing in this series and was not disappointed with the Castle as Skye Warren has once again managed to blow me away with how much I loved her book.

Firstly the Prologue gives us more of the night of Avery's 18th birthday and it helped me return to this world of many games being played.

The Castle was breathtaking and brilliant and when Avery finally makes all the connections in her memory from her childhood it created that moment in books where you take a breathe. As a reader you knew major secrets were hidden but there trying to be revealed - just fantastic. This instalment is fast paced and you will be constantly on guard with Avery waitin

I was a little worried going into this book, I mean, I loved the previous two, so would this one live up? Yeah, that wasn't a problem, this was a fantastic conclusion to the journey for Avery and Gabriel. Whereas the first book had the dark, and the second the suspense, this one has both of those, but it has the emotion, the heart, and I am in a serious book hangover this morning from it!

We get to know the people that Avery and Gabriel are, together. This is clear coupledom, but neither is fully

You can always tell when you are reading a Skye Warren novel… from the cover art to the dark and wickedly spellbinding stories she writes. Here we have another hit as The Endgame Series comes to a close. This series has packed quite a punch with so much drama, suspense, intrigue, mystery and a heap of sex- sexual tension and steamy sex.

The endgame of all endgames! I can't believe the game is over! Helluva way to go out in any event, however!

Avery. Gabriel. Castle. Cage. Secrets. Castle, the explosive conclusion, is dark, twisted, and incredibly yummy! I am in awe of Gabriel's technique to take something as sexist as "settling Avery in" (read the story) and make it seem totally normal! I feel as if I'm deprived and missed out because I haven't experienced those tactics. Kudos to Warren for an A-1 imagination!

...and the conclusion of the Gabriel and Avery's story

I really do not want to say anything about how the story of Gabriel and Avery continues in this third book. Whatever I say, it will be a spoiler.

But there are so many unexpected twists. Good and seriously bad ones.

And the feelings. There are so many amazing feelings. I just want to share my favorite passage from the book.

I finished re-reading The Castle two minutes ago. It’s the first time I ended a book and jumped back to the first page again. I literally couldn’t let go.

I’m so amazed by how brilliantly Skye managed to wrap up this trilogy! I really liked The Pawn and The Knight and I was a little worried because we all know the final book can make or break an entire trilogy. The Castle didn’t just make the trilogy, it skyrocketed it. Absolutely mind blowing!

As a chess-player and a smut queen, there was no way I couldn't buy this series. I mean, it combines two things that I love in a weird and unexpected way - like a peanut butter and pickle sandwich (no, okay, this is actually a thing and you should try it). THE PAWN, the first book in the series, lived up to my smutty expectations with its "dangerous" hero, virginity auction, revenge subplots, and utterly depraved cast of characters. THE

An amazing ending to an exciting, suspenseful, and sexy trilogy! I'm so happy I read this trilogy, and I'm very eager to read Damon and Penny's story!!

What an insane ride for Endgame trilogy. The Castle is the conclusion to Avery and Gabriel's story. This book holds the last piece of the puzzle about the antagonist darkest secret that almost break Avery. Out of the three books, this was the most creative and has the best plot twist. It was unpredictable, dark and sickening.

While the antagonist is on the loose. Gabriel ensures Avery's safety by not letting her out of his sight. She stays in his home like a princess trapped in a fortress. His o
