In this seductive follow-up to Poison Princess, #1 New York Timesbestselling author Kresley Cole takes us deeper into the dark world of the Arcana Chronicles.
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.
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.
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.
Last year Poison Princess sparked an instant love for Kresley Cole and her writing. Once I devoured PP I started collecting her Immortals After Dark series, which I’ve been enjoying bit by bit.
KC’s idea for this series is amazing, and one that I’ve never read about before. She took a thriving genre and made it more. I’ve read and enjoyed numerous dystopian novels but hers going forward could easily top the list. I’m fascinated by the tarot aspect in the book, and I think it gives her an edge over the competition for having something more to her books.
Poison Princess leaves us with Evie unleashing her inner Empress to save herself from the Alchemist. And Jack doesn’t take it well, finding out his girlfriend is well…not entirely human. And in the start of Endless Knight, this doesn’t go over well with Evie.
We meet new allies and new enemies, we meet Death (new book boyfriend) and a slew of other Arcana. I also picked up on something in the book that I’m hoping will come out in the next book because it would be epic! I could be wrong, but I don’t think I am, also others that have read EK have hinted at the same thing.
We learned a lot of new information about Death in this book, and what I learned, I loved. He is such a complex character. He has his reasons for being the way he is and acting the way he does. Sadly, Jack falls out of favor. Nothing he did, just I like Death more. Think of Death like Warner in the Shatter Me series.
I loved this book, and it made it’s way onto my top ten for 2013. If you like post-apocalyptic / dystopian / zombie books, this is a series I would encourage reading. Even if you are a fan of Kresley Cole I think you would love it even though it’s different from her other series. This series brought me to KC and I will enjoy staying to see what else is in store for Evie and her gang. I can’t believe how KC left us AGAIN, at the end of Endless Knight it is going to be a long, long wait until the next Arcana novel comes out.
