Poison Princess, book 1, was so intriguing and awesome and Endless Knight was even better!
Evie is so much more badass in this installment. She has learned to embrace her powers and not to shy away from them, but she still remembers who she is. She is still kind and sweet and only uses her powers against the baddies. Sometimes she doesn’t have a choice to use her powers, and I totally respect her.
Death…his name totally creeps me out but he as a person does not. I was very wary about people falling in love with him but now I totally get it! He seriously surprised me time and time again and he isn’t at all like what I thought he would be like. He is a scary, scary man, but not with Evie. He definitely has a soft spot for her and he allowed her to pull back his layers and I loved him!
But I definitely also love Jack too. He’s my sexy Cajun man. He is the greatest dirty talker I’ve ever come across in YA books. I don’t know how I feel about him right now but he hasn’t had a chance to defend his case, so I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt. I have faith that he’ll come through for Evie.
The plot is so unique and fun to read about. I’ve never read a book about the Tarot cards and I completely love the series. The writing is addicting. Cole seriously has a gift! The romance is a dreaded love triangle. I’m having a hard time picking my team now, but I’m leaning towards Death. He has a slightly Warner-ish (from the Shatter Me series) vibe and y’all know I adore him!
I can’t wait for the conclusion of this awesome series!
Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: Then his lips were on mine, scalding in the rain, covering, claiming. His tongue swept in, demanding more, more. For someone so out of practice, his kiss was perfection – but savage too, as if it was the last one he would ever have. Surrendering to it, I threw my arms around his neck. Just like in my dream. Better than. Incredibly hotter.
