    "Thrilling!"

    Well Kresley Cole does it again! Another thrilling, sexy, fun, romantic adventure and one outstanding sequel. I never thought the 2nd book would ever come close to Poison Princess but much like her IAD series they just keep getting better and better. This story has so many twists and turns and “I didn’t see that coming” moments. I was literally on the edge of my seat for the entire listen.

    The world building, character development and plot twists are pure genius. Nothing feels contrived or forced just to move the plot along. Endless Knight has a lot more action and is a little darker than the first book. The Arcana are starting to form alliances as battle lines are drawn in a fight to the death. Throw in some bagmen, militia and cannibals and you have a non-stop, thrilling adventure.

    Definitely a 5 star listen!

    Story
    "Fast-paced and sexy! Can't wait for the next book!"
    If you could sum up Endless Knight in three words, what would they be?

    Nail-biter (that's one word, right?), steamy, surprising. Or maybe "Your Death awaits"?


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Endless Knight?

    There are so many...I can't narrow it down to just one! Endless Knight is cover-to-cover action. Without giving any spoilers, my favourite moment comes towards the end of the book, when Evie learns just how skilled Death really is. Wow. In fact, I loved almost all of the interaction between Evie and Death in the second half of the book.

    Other memorable moments include meeting new Arcana (both friend and foe), Evie going hardcore Empress and coming into her powers, and Jack and Evie "checking the perimeter".


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Emma Galvin is one of my favourite narrators. I wouldn't have discovered Poison Princess (the predecessor to Endless Knight) if I hadn't been so impressed with her other audio performances and sought out audiobooks narrated by her. She makes the story come alive.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes! I nearly did too.


    Any additional comments?

    The world that Kresley Cole has built for Endless Knight (and the first book in the series, Poison Princess), from the tarot card players (Arcana) to the post-apocalyptic world, is fascinating.

    I would have given the story five stars but the cliffhanger ending was too abrupt for my liking. I like suspense and I understand that it builds anticipation for the next book, but it left me feeling like the book was unfinished.

    And for adults wondering if Endless Knight is age-appropriate, other than the ages of the main characters, I wouldn't even classify this as young adult. There's way more sexual content than I'd feel comfortable letting my teen read, but I loved it. Is it hot in here?

    ***NO SPOILERS***

    I've waited a year for this book to get here and now I am riding a high of many emotions. Kresley threw us a curveball with this book. There were at least 3 times, maybe more, that I had to stop and say "OMG, SERIOUSLY??" And then rewind and listen again.
    Emma does an amazing job narrating and this book is perfection. This is definitely a book you will have to read.
    Do I have to wait another year for the last book???
    HAPPY LISTENING

    Story
    "Team Death all the way!"

    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 these teenagers fool you, this is grown up YA at its best. The author does such an amazing job of making readers dislike Death that when the love triangle began to develop I was convinced that nothing could sway me from Team Deveaux. Well, now I’m eating crow because Aric was so skillfully fleshed out that the Cajun is just a distant memory. Jackson who?

    For a girl that doesn’t want to play the game, Evie sure is racking up Arcana symbols! I love how far she’s come from that scared young woman refusing to accept her new, albeit harsh reality, to the ring leader of an unlikely alliance of Arcana. Greene shows mercy when the situation calls for it, and still believes that more than one power card can survive the coming battle, but when he friends’ lives are on the line, she doesn’t hesitate to do what must be done. I enjoyed witnessing the Empress embrace her powers in ENDLESS KNIGHT; her abilities may be the complete opposite of Death’s, however life can, and does annihilate just as easily. Evie continues to surprise me at every turn from how she deals with the teeth (carnivores), to certain characters’ two-facedness, to Aric’s unexpected past. The Red Queen is no pushover!

    Coles’ dystopian world-building marched forward in this installment with the Hierophant, Devil, Tower, Strength, Judgment, and World cards. I liked learning more about their tableaux, calls, and powers as well as the characters that they represent. I also developed a soft spot for Scarface, Cyclops, and Maneater—Lark’s wolves. The plot line was uncomplicated: escape Death, and when that fails, survive him. I enjoyed the showdown leading up to Evie’s capture, and her time with Aric was enlightening to say the least. I was happy that Jackson was finally clued in to the game and ecstatic when he and Evie found a brief respite in each other’s arms. But of course, just when Greene decides to trust him his deception comes to light.

    This novel took so many turns that I did not see coming, and oddly enough, I found myself rooting for the bad guy! Like most other readers, love triangles are the bane of my existence, but the one in ENDLESS KNIGHT is so far removed from what is typical of this trope that I wasn’t the least bit upset by it when it eventually surfaced. I’d mentioned in my review of book 1 that Emma Galvin’s narration carried that installment, so I was relieved to see her flying solo this time around. I’m not knocking Keith Nobbs’ delivery, but I prefer to give credit where it’s due. Galvin excels at bringing THE ARCANA CHRONICLES’ dark tone to life while still doing the youthful characters justice with a YA authenticity that so many performers in this genre lack.

    ENDLESS KNIGHT concluded with one heck of a cliffhanger, but that’s a recipe for success as far as pre-orders of DEAD OF WINTER go because you can bet I’ll be glued to my earbuds come hell or high water on January 6th, 2015.

    Story
    "Cole is a master!"

    First Impression:
    Cole is a master at delivering a dark and interesting dystopian world and I can’t get enough of it.

    Favorite Line/Quote(s):
    “Cannibals need love too.”
    “Death wants to gank me. Must be Tuesday.”

    The Narration:
    Emma Galvin has the prefect voice for this series. She has a young and smokey voice that allows her to pull of both the female and male characters.

    What I liked:
    I’m not a huge YA reader and one of the things I love about Endless Knight is that it doesn’t feel like YA. Cole weaves a very compelling story of romance, action and mythology around the arcana to satisfy even non YA readers. Even though this world Cole has build is very dark she lightens it with great secondary characters and their snarky humor and she pulls off the YA romance without all the angst you get with some YA books. Sure there is a love triangle forming in Endless Knight but it’s a believable one that you would find in an adult novel.

    Cole also does an amazing job with making me fall in love with the “evil” guy. And that’s hard to take a character that is seen as evil and turn him around to where you sympathize with him and want him to have a HEA.

    The Arcana game is in full swing and Cole imagination is limitless and I’m in awe of the world and characters she has crafted.

    What I didn’t like:
    Having to wait for the next book.

    Lasting Impression:
    I’ll still be thinking about this book for a few more weeks.

    Will I continue this series: Yes. A thousand times yes!

    Would I read this author again:
    YES! I love her adult PNR series, Immortals After Dark and now this series. I will read ANYTHING that has Cole’s name on it!

    "So Good!"

    Loved Poison Princess, and this book is better. It has more action and more characters. I listened to it in two days. And now I am pissed because I have to wait forever for book 3. I love the twists and turns that take place with Jack and Evie, and then with Death and Evie. It definitely goes in a direction I wasn't expecting - but I loved it! Love love love Emma Galvin too.

    If you could sum up Endless Knight in three words, what would they be?

    Oh My God


    What other book might you compare Endless Knight to and why?

    Endless Knight stands alone. Kresley Cole played with all my emotions and I loved it.


    What does Emma Galvin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Ms. Galvin brought the book to life. Evie and Jack were so amazing.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love, Hate and Tears...


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend Endless Knight.

    "Nice Sequel"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Endless Knight to be better than the print version?

    No, I actually read most of the book. I'm not sure if it's because the previous audiobooks I listened to (Susan Ericksen in the In Death series) are excellent hence the comparison and I found the narration for this book lacking.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I couldn't distinguish who is speaking, when Evie is thinking or speaking aloud. So to give justice to the book I had to read it instead.

    "Oh The Ending!"
    What did you love best about Endless Knight?

    I love the history between The Empress and Death, finding this out was awesome!


    What other book might you compare Endless Knight to and why?

    This series really stands out from any other series I have read, one of a kind for sure! Kresley Cole is amazing, and this world she created is so awesome.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I honestly can't pick just one.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I relly don't want to give anything away here, but when Evie found out what Jack did....


    Any additional comments?

    This is a young adults book, but honestly I wouldn't let my child under 18 read it... although nothing in this book would probably be a shock to most teenagers these days, there are some pretty steamy parts.

    "AWESOME!!!! AWESOME!!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Endless Knight the most enjoyable?

    I love the characters, action and imagination.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Evie of course!


    What about Emma Galvin’s performance did you like?

    I don't think this book could have been performed by any other than Emma. She is a one of a kind!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was a bit taken back that this book was for young readers. It was a bit steamy in parts that I thought was not suited for young ears. I am so torn between the two guys!!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Ended with a torn emotions!!!! What a cliff hanger. Can't wait for the next book!!!!!!
