Start your review of Covetous (The Marked Mage Chronicles, #2)
Hang on for a tale of tug-o-war with one girl’s heart, mind and soul as she fights with all she has to avoid becoming the bride of the Crown Prince of Lust, the dark mage, Blaine. It all started when Kat was “marked” by Blaine and it became open season on her life. Now, with the help of light mage, Reese, (who seems to have her romantic favor) and the professor, Kat attempts every spell they can find to remove the mark that acts as a homing beacon for Blaine. When he moves next door to her aunt’ ...more

Okay, I was not ready for that…
After reading the first book, I thought I knew what I was in for.


Not. At. All.

No sophomore slump here. Covetous is an electrifying urban fantasy with incredible characters that will stay with you long after you finish. The story begins a couple months after the events of the first book, where Kat Montgomery has settled in a new town and is now living with her aunt (because her parents are douches and left her! Yeah, they shouldn't be expecting Parent Of The Y

I absolutely adore this series so far! I couldn't stop turning the pages as new plot twists made it all the more interesting and unpredictable. I hope a third book will be coming out soon! This book is easily one of my new favorites and one I will definitely be recommending to others. ...more

Great read really looking forward to book three.

Better than the first one

Typically the first book in a series is one of the best, however this is not the case here. Pacing is great and the interactions between the characters aid this. Interesting story that keeps you drawn in the whole Time. The twists, while not all together super unpredictable, are well played. Definitely recommend.

3.5 mostly bc it took the h an age to show any growth Around any mate related topics... it grew incredibly tiresome.

Note to self wait until full series is published.

What a cliffhanger, and the next book isn’t out yet! Ugh! I’m liking the series pretty good. I waffled between 3 or 4 stars though. Mainly because the style of writing sometimes is a little confusing. The characters are referred to in different ways For example Mr. Reynolds, Nathan, Papa Bear, Adam’s Father are all used to refer to one character, and he’s not even a main character. It gets hard to keep them all straight in my head. Also, sometimes it feels like things are mentioned, or events oc ...more

Loved it!

Wow! I'm blown away. This book was amazing, yet left me needing to read the next in line immediately. C'mon author. Get it written.

Kat and Reese try feverently to break the hex that Blaine put on Kat. She tries to reverse the mating bond before it's too late and completely succumbs to Blaine's whim. Everyone's relationship in this books seems to evolve into so much more. Can't tell you more without ruining it. Just read it!

Even better the second time around. I'm totally in love with the bad guy! I need more Blaine.

What a shame, I thought, peering down at the striking young man beneath me, to be so beautiful on the outside, only to possess such a blackened heart.

“It may be black, love,” his voice purred inside my head. “But that doesn’t mean it still can’t be made of gold.”

I finished this book awhile back and forgot to write the review immediately. So, here I am trying to remember all the details. I know I liked this 2 book series. The pacing was good. This is definitely a love triangle, and I really liked the ending. I will most likely look for other books by this author.

I couldn't put it down! Some sequels fall flat but this one held its own. I hope the next one comes out soon.

I just finished reading and I'm literally speechless and have an extreme book hang over! Insidious put me in a book slump for weeks, I couldn't pick up another book. This sequel was action packed, easy to follow, and incredibly simple to get caught up in! I literally could not put it down! Well done Victoria on another fantastic book! I'm literally dying for book 3! I highly recommend this author and this series!

*Received an ARC for my honest opinion*

So happy that Insidious wasn't a fluke! Victoria Evers writing style shines through in total awesomeness.

This book was better than the first, holy hell talk about some plot twists!

Now I don't know who's team I am on now. Going to need to read both books again to make sure where I lay my loyalties at. To say the least I highly recommend this book if you read Insidious. If you not read Insidious, get on that so you can read Covetous!

Shelves: devoted-man
This book is very well written. Similar in some ways to "Shatter Me" by Mafi, it shatters your initial expectations and takes you down a new road entirely-but in a believable way. I was incredibly impressed by this series and am excited for the next book. As an avid reader, I would say I'm impressed by about 1 out of every 10 to 15 books I read. This one definitely impressed me. I hope the next book provides an incredible conclusion to this epic romance. Rarely do I anticipate the release of a b ...more

So was not expecting that wow

I'm really enjoying this new series and I personally find it really hard to find a decent demon series so when I read the description and it mentioned demons hell hounds and the Prince of lust I couldn't resist and the first book didn't disappoint literally read the book in a day couldn't put it down once I started great characters great plot but the mane reason I've given 4 stars not 5 is because of book 2 don't get me wrong the story is amazing how ever the leading

Just 'wow'. That was incredible. SOOOO much character growth. I have to say I always have a tendency to root for the bad guy. This book has me salivating for a Val spinoff series/book. But the amount that you learn about ALL the main characters in this book is crazy. SO much happens.

I love the growth of Kat and Reese. And Kat and Blaine. And Val.

I did kind of feel like Carly being drug along for the ride was a little 'just for a spinoff setup', because otherwise she didn't feel particularly

Wow! I love this book. Usually book 1 are always the best when it comes to a series, but not this one. This one was for sure a page turner and a whole lot entertaining. I hated Blaine in book 1, but I love him in book 2. Kat definitely turned into one strong heroine, with the help of Blaine. I love that I got to know more of Blaine in book 2 and he is so much more than meets the eye. Sure I am very fond of Reese and he is adorable, but he is not around enough for me to completely fall for him... ...more

I'm not one to write reviews often, I just enjoy reading and rating, but I just had to take a moment to say how much I really am enjoying this series. It is unique with character building to not only the reader understand more but it is placed so unobtrusive thru the story one doesn't question how they understand or misunderstood a character. You just enjoy the ride of the read. I have become invested in this series and also anxious to dive into the next stories in this world to follow. Thank

Loved it!

Heart pounding rapid action with our heroine fighting divided loyalties and attraction. The prince of hell turned out to be a totally different then previously implied. The good guys aren't good and the evil guys are not bad. The fights and narrow escapes, the sacrifices and the devotion are deeply affecting the arc of the story.

OMG!! Can I say I'm cheering for Blaine?? I love this bad boy!! He loves Kat so much!! I'm not a fan of Reece anymore... Sorry lol can't wait for book 3!! 5++++ stars!!
I Need It!

This series just keeps getting better and better... and I really only have one thing to say:

I need book 3 NOW!!

That is all.

Hm, I liked this one less.

Also, as a note, titles like "crown prince" aren't proper nouns so they aren't capitalized when they're not part of someone's name or being used in address in place of their name. What is it with YA novels trying to capitalize words like "prince" and "princess" even when they shouldn't?

A lot of the book didn't seem to have a clear objective, instead choosing to focus on Kat fighting with Blaine, and, like so many YA before it, it appears the love interest who wasn't re
