The Jack is the second book in The Immortal Series by M.K Harkins. This is an extremely good New Adult fantasy- full of action mystery, suspense, danger, secrets, emotion, intrigue, and romance. Although you could read this book as a standalone, I really recommend reading The Reader before setting off on this adventure. The Reader is where we meet Archer and what happens in that book really sets the tone and direction of Archer’s story, so having all that information would be highly benef

I have dishes stacked in the sink, a load of laundry sitting in the washer, beds not made, floors not washed and a pot of coffee that has mysteriously disappeared. Why am I telling this to you, you ask? I have spent the past few hours with my nose in my laptop screen, reading "The Jack" I sat down to start reading it and was so into it, NOTHING got accomplished today, except reading "The JACK" and drinking an entire pot of coffee.
I have always wanted to give my opinion to/on an author, and now
The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two) by M.K. Harkins was a entertaining engaging read that had my hooked.

Not my first read by this author or in this series, and though this book takes place two years after The Reader ends, this is still a continuation series so I suggest reading the first book before this one, as it will give you much needed info on the character's backstory and, the even that takes place before The Jack.

I have to say, that this book was a tad bit better than the first, the

Please read THE READER (Book 1 of The Immortal Series) first. THE JACK (Book 2 of the series) is an amazingly fantastically layered story and it is my opinion that it will be a much more satisfying read if read in order. There are a lot of nuances and characters for which the groundwork is layed in the first book.

Ok, now my review... Today was an incredibly busy day being an adult. After finally getting home at 7pm, I started reading THE JACK and realized this was a book that deserved a pleasant

After reading book 1 in the series, I was looking forward to The Jack and wasn’t disappointed. It was abound with romantic tension, suspenseful action and surprise twist and turns that blew my mind.
Archer is of mixed blood, first he betrayed people who trusted him, now he’s attempting to help them. He’s really in a quandary though, he has many choices he can choose from, but each has it’s own consequences, which will have the best outcome for them all? Which will Archer choose?
An exciting, edge

Loved the story. All the twists and turns, all the romantic tension, all the action! Harkins proves to be an excellent storyteller, engaging the reader and taking them on a thrilling ride. Don’t miss out on this series, and be sure to check out her other books, perfect reads.
Oh and Archer is really, really hot! Enjoy.

This author has come a long way since releasing her first book, but I've been a fan since then. Hard to pick a favorite series, and PNR isn't a genre I read a lot of, but both The Reader and The Jack were immensely enjoyable, quick and easy to read, and thrilling to the end.

What I liked most about The Jack is Archer. *swoon* I prefer the bad boy, and Archer fits the bill, but not overly so. He's a misfit who's lost his way among other things, like the woman he loved, but then Sadie comes along

I loved this story! Great continuation of characters and the pace was just right for all the action. Not steamy and not lame, I think I'm over the overly sexual books. I love her writing style and voice.
As soon as this book came on my radar I knew that I had to read it. Having not read the first book, The Reader, I immediately went and one-clicked it, tore through it, and then sat in anxious anticipation for The Jack to release!

I knew this one was going to have me gripping the pages because I fell hard and fast for Archer in the first book and wow the way things went out in The Reader I wasn't quite sure where his story was going to go, although I knew he would be redeemed I was totally unsure

Picking up where the last book left off The Jack follows Archer on his road to redemption. What’s so lovely about redemption stories is that we get to see the complications that come with wanting to redeem one’s self. Archer was a minor character in the previous novel, and now he finally gets to shine. He seems so different than he was in the previous novel because two years have passed, allowing him to think on all the lies that led to his betrayal, lies he thought of as truth, forcing him now ...more

Standalone, Excellent Editing, Entertaining, Highly Recommend.

This book and the first one in the series, ‘The Reader’ were excellent paranormal romances. ‘The Jack’ is the second standalone book in the series that has continuing characters and an overarching storyline. ‘The Reader’ had a satisfying and natural conclusion, and this volume, ‘Jack’, picked up with the same characters, as well as new ones, two years after the conclusion of ‘The Reader ‘.

*This review may contain spoilers from book 1.*

Archer just exists now. His once best friends hate him. The woman of his dreams is in love with the man he considered like a brother. He cannot move on. But when a woman warns him that his friends are in danger, he cannot only not get her out of his head, he thinks she might be of a race thought to be long gone. Does he warn these people who now hate him?

The Jack is the exciting second book in M.K. Harkins’ The Immortals series. It picks up a couple of years after the first book, The Reader, ended with the extinction of (nearly) all of the Jacks – a race of immortals who bring terror and death to the world.
I’m glad there was a chance for Archer to develop more as a character, following the events of the previous book. It was also great to get to know Sadie – I really liked her as a character (and Eve!). The way she’d struggled over the years wit

The Jack was a great 5 star read and book 2 in The Immortal Series.
I was excited to get started on this read to see where the series was going next with Archer.

We get pulled in right from the beginning when Archer is sitting on the beach watching the one woman he loved but would never have because of choices that were made years before. When Sadie sits down next to him, something happens that causes him to make a choice.

By warning Archer, Sadie has revealed her true self, she panics and takes o

The Jack is book 2 and should be read after book one called The Reader. This series is off to a fantastic, adventurous start. I enjoyed reading this book and learning about the newest characters. Some characters return from book one and others are new to us.

The bottom line is essentially the same as book one. Good versus evil. There were three groups unknown to humans, trying to make the world a better place. One group, The Jacks, decided to turn away from good, while the Readers and the Seers

Archer has had a difficult life. Being raised by Readers for most of his life he had everything. Good friends and a happy life. Outside of his father hating him he had everything he ever wanted. Then he found out he was half-Jack and has spent the last two years alone after betraying his family. When a girl comes up to him and tells him

The Jack, The Immortal Series Book Two, by M.K. Harkins is a contemporary fantasy novel. I highly recommend reading the series in order so that you learn back history on several of the characters that are paramount, front and center in The Jack. The Jack is the follow-up story to The Reader. In The Jack, Asher takes the stage either to surpass all expectations or to fall into the depths everyone believes he belongs within.

What an amazing second book of the Immortal Series, the Jack. I really like MK Harkins and she does an amazing job writing for the YA audience. The YA audience needs specialized talent to write a book and not lose their interest with in the first couple of pages. To be real I was hooked with in the first couple of paragraphs.

I knew it would be, because I LOVED “The Reader” and this series is blowing my mind how good it is! “The Jack” gives us a different perspective than “The Reader” but with the same main characters, plus the lovely addition of Sadie.

Poor Archer! Talk about having the weight of the world on your shoulders... or in this case humanity.

This is the first book I have read by M. K. Harkins.

The Jack was a twisty, suspense-filled read. The romance is great, not too angsty and fairly tame. This is because, while the romantic aspect plays a big part in the story, it isn't the entire story. There are many twists and turns throughout the book that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Difficult choices must be made. Consequ

I was so excited when I found out that there was going to be a second book to after M.K. Harkins’s, The Reader. I had enjoyed that one but, felt it was a tad rushed and needed more or at least had more to give. I would recommend reading the first book before you jump into this one. It would set up the world and explain things a bit for you.

That all said this is the story of Archer and Sadie. I really enjoyed these two. Archer is stuck between a rock and a hard place really. He has had been both

Years before, Archer betrays the Readers and ever since has been living alone and filled with unrequited love.
