Endless Knight
The Arcana Chronicles #2
Author: Kresley Cole
Reading Level: Young Adult
Genre: Dystopia
Released: October 1st 2013
Review Source: Purchased

Shocking secrets. 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 reincarnated as the Tarot are in the throes of an epic battle. It's kill or be killed, and the future of mankind hangs in the balance.

Unexpected allies. With threats lurking around every corner, Evie is forced to trust her newfound alliance. Together they must fight not only other Arcana, but also Bagmen zombies, post-apocalyptic storms, and cannibals.

Gut-wrenching treachery. When Evie meets Death, things get even more complicated. Though falling for Jack, she's drawn to the dangerous Endless Knight as well. Somehow the Empress and Death share a history, one that Evie can't remember--but Death can't forget...

Not sure how it happened, but I fell in love with Kresley Cole even more after Endless Knight. She captivates my attention and the next thing I know hours have passed and the book is finished. Confession: I read Endless Knight the day it came out and since then I’ve listened to both audiobooks (Poison Princess and Endless Knight) at least 100 times. I could probably read you the book without looking at the pages. I’m addicted and not ashamed to admit it.

Jackson and Evie’s journey continues in Endless Knight. Despite some of the terrible things Jackson experienced in the past with his mother’s ill chosen boyfriends, he can’t wrap his head around the ‘new’ side of Evie. The sweet, innocent girl he knew came fully into her power as the Empress...powers Jackson didn't even knew she had. He saw the aftermath of her destruction and the look in her eyes. Can their love conquer or will the Dark Knight swoop in and change her course?

I knew going into Endless Knight that there was going to be a love triangle. Let me just say I hate them. 9/10 I will refuse a book because I can’t stand the overused eye rolling plot. Cole took the plot point I hate so much and made it pure gold. The triangle between Jack, Evie and Death hadn’t formed properly by the end of the book and I’m (surprisingly) looking forward to see how it turns out. But let me just say this: I am team Jack. Forever and always. Despite some revelations in Endless Knight—which I don’t agree with, by the way—I don’t want her to end up with Death, even though I love him too.

And I have so many questions. And theories. Having read the series so many time I pick up on little things each time. I’m hoping Dead of Winter (book 3 out January 6th 2015) will easy my mind slightly and have some answers because I don't think my mind could take more suspense, lol!

To sum it up, I adored this book. I loved everything about it. The characters are interesting and mysterious and Jackson is just utter perfection (I may have a crush on the Jackson cover model) and I've never fangirled so hard over a book in a long time. As well as reading and reviewing, I also write. I find Kresley Cole (and this series) to be a big inspiration.


  1. I've heard great things about this series. I've promised Carmel (@RabidReads) that I would try the series on audio next year.

    1. The audiobooks are great. I thought the narrator was a perfect fit and they're really enjoyable!
