Endless Knight by Kresley Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

In this seductive follow-up to Poison Princess, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole takes us deeper into the dark world of the Arcana Chronicles.

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

 REVIEW

What can I say about the sequel of "Poison Princess"? That there's is unstoppable action? That romance blooms between Evie and Jack in the most romantic way? Well, I did enjoy the book mostly in its first part since later it becomes a little...awkward for me.

Evie, Jack and gang continue to travel across apocalyptic America in search for Evie's grandmother. But many obstacles stand in their way: bagmen, cannibals, other Arcana and the worst of them all: Death.
When a series of events causes Evie to be caught by Death, imprisoned in his estate, she will try to free herself in order to go back to Jack.



Without wanting to spoiler you, I will mention some issues in this book. Despite its amazing world-building, character develpoment and romance, this book felt like it was the beginning of a love triangle, which I don't like.



Evie gets to know Death and although he did kidnap her and tortured her, she STILL grew feelings for him. (Stockholm Syndrome maybe???) Ew
Jack is absent in the second part of the book and only through Mathew we get some glimpses. And although the author tries to explain the reasons behins Death's attitude, I still didn't like how Evie grew fond of Death.
The book ends in yet another cliffhanger and I seriously want a better ending on book three (since I am reading it now).
