In this seductive follow-up to Poison Princess, New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole takes us deeper into the dark world of the Arcana Chronicles.
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.

Not quite as fulfilling as the first book in the series but still worth while. The narrator still rocks!
Great story. Cole is an excellent writer and did a fabulous job of ushering the reader into an entirely new set of conflicts for the protagonist. Couldn't stop listening. . . and then came the end. The end was rushed, chaotic and conflicted with all of the carefully established character development just tossed out of the window for no reason, as far as I could tell. That being said, while the end was a let down, a big one, because I had become so invested in the outcome, the story is still worth a credit. If this were a stand-alone book, then I would say, save the credit. Fortunately, there is more to come for the characters; it is, therefore, to be hoped that the author won't get tired of developing conflict and forcing the protagonist through difficult decisions. I'm eager to see what comes next. I am also hopeful that the author will pull the protagonist back on track. Cole's writing is superior, so hopefully, all of that teenage angst stuff was just a momentary blip in a modern tale of fate gone awry.
This series is amazing....but a little upset that i gotta wait so long to listen to what is next.
What shall i do in the meantime but think about the possibilites of what will or may or could happen.
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
Please tell me I don't have to wait another year for the next book!!! Ends on a cliff hanger! not saying anything if your a Kresley Cole fan your getting the book anyways! ...And yes I am surprised what Kresley Cole got away with it the cave scene ;-) but appreciated anyways. Eagerly awaiting the next installment!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book starts right were the last book left off. I was so engrossed in the story I forgot to take my breaks at work, just continued to work and listen. In this book we get to find out more about Arik/Death and we discover there is so much more of him to like. Usually I'm not a fan of triangles but I like both of this men soooo much, I will take a sandwich please. So hard to pick which one I like better Jack or Arik. The world that Kresley Cole has created is amazing and so vivid to me, I want this to become a TV series. The use of Tarot cards are ingenious. I finally found another series that I'm super excited about, my only regret is that there is only three books out and that Kresley Cole doesn't write faster. Narrator does an excellent job and I am glad that only one was used in this book.

I love all things Kresley Cole and I have read almost all her books. The Arcana Chronicles is my favorite so far. Read this! I'm so excited that the third one is out!
I didn't think I would like it..but I got it anyways because I love k.cole. Once I got into it, again I am loving it just like her other books. I love the fact that you get pulled into the story sooo much that you don't want it to end. It's like loosing a friend. You get to know everyone in the book and get pulled into the story along with a great narrator, you can't put it down!
I loved how well each character is developed with very unique backgrounds that are revealed to the reader as they are revealed to the lead character Evie. The author did a great job pulling you in to feel the indecision Evie was going through. I found myself reacting to the new knowledge about characters just as Evie had. So it was an emotional ride, and very fun.
I really liked when Evie decided that not everyone was "good" or "bad." "Good - Bad - Good." The story gave the characters more than one dimension to their personalities and this author did that very well.
Emma is a fantastic narrator. Her different voices for each character were so real I would sometimes forget the story was being read by one person.
It made me want more!
I loved Poison Princess, and Endless Knight had a lot to live up to. For me it almost hit a home run with new characters, more action, and suspense, but I did feel the romance aspect of it lacking.
Endless Knight picks up right where the last book left off, our main character Evie has just made her first kill in a deadly game where 22 kids, each representing a tarot card, must fight to the death. So without spoiling anything the first half of the book reminded me why I feel in love with the series. Evie and her allies fight to stay alive in the twisted post apocalypse world while being hunt by the other assassins in the game. Evie and Jack romance hit a snag, now that Jack has seen Evie all Carrie-like.
The second half was slightly less enjoyable. Death romance is what i didn't enjoy. It creates a pointless love triangle. I mean a horrible secret sort of make Jack less likable, but the grudge death have against Evie is sort of childish. Let just say you can't stab someone, decide you in love with them, then be surprise when they stab you in the back.
Overall, I still loved it. The ending wasn't as strong a Poison Princess, but it set the third book up nicely. I will defiantly read this one again, maybe I'm judging death to harshly, but I can't wait for the next installment.
I love how Emma brings the passion and accents of the characters to life. I've never heard Cajun spoken before Poison Princess so hearing PP and EK read helped make that more real for me.
Jack, forever and always Jack. He is character is so rich and complex, his history is so perfect and mysterious. Kresley Cole did an outstanding job creating his character and bringing him to life in print. She's setting the stage for something that I believe will wow her readers over the next book or two. He's got a story that is twisted and in depth and it breaks my heart where she leaves him at the end of this book!
These books beg to be made into film! They have every element needed to be a huge hit! Romance triangle, action, adventure, angst, loss, passion, tension, not to mention that the apocalypse genre plus the supernatural genres are hot right now.
Twenty two people come into their powers and a new game begins, but one girl is about to turn the game on it's head, because she's not playing by the rules this time.
The end is about to begin; are YOU ready?
