ENDLESS KNIGHT is for readers who has a vast imagination, love dramatics and enjoy being blindsided every once in awhile. You can be sure that you won’t be bored while reading a Kresley Cole book.

In the second book of the Arcana Chronicles, Cole further explores the dystopian world that she has expertly built but this time, readers are in the front seat and we get a whole new experience as the player’s powers manifest. I would probably read the first book of the series before you read this one. A lot of the worldbuilding is introduced in the first book and now with this book, the game is in play. Cole doesn’t really wait around very much but instead drives you deep into the action and the tricks. For new readers, I would definitely think you’d be lost if you didn’t read Poison Princess first.

Jackson and Evie have this mounting tension that continues to rise and rise until you wonder whenever is it going to finally erupt! As a romance author, Cole excels are writing sexual tension so it’s really no wonder how that made it into this series. For fans of her adult books, I would say that there is a big chance you’d enjoy this series as well. I don’t think Cole tones down her writing style or her complex world and plot. Cole is a mastermind when it comes to writing so that will always be in her books regardless of what genre she writes. This series is a little more sexier than most YA and for me, that’s always a fantastic thing.

One thing I was very impressed about is Cole’s imagination. She constantly surprises readers with unique, original ideas and with this series, you can tell that she had had a lot of creative freedom to explore what’s in her mind. Intricate details are revealed, further making this series one to come back to again and again.

About Kresley Cole

Kresley Cole is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the electrifying Immortals After Dark paranormal series and the young adult Arcana Chronicles. She has also written five award-winning historical romances.

Since her first novel was released in 2003, Kresley has published nineteen books with Simon & Schuster and has seen her releases translated into more than eighteen foreign languages. She has traveled over much of the world and draws from those experiences to create her memorable characters and settings. Two of her favorite places to visit include the rain forests of Central America and the Queensland area of Australia.

Cole’s trademark action, sensuality, and humor are exemplified in her popular Immortals After Dark Series, which revolves around the Lore, a secret stratum of hundreds of immortal creatures--ranging from Vampires to Lykae, Furies to Shifters, and Fey to Valkyrie--that each have their strengths, weaknesses, and age old prejudices against the others. Though they secretly live among humans, they constantly war among themselves, which gives her a lot of material.

In 2007, Kresley won the prestigious Romance Writers of America RITA award for best paranormal for her novel A Hunger Like No Other, and in January 2009, she became a #1 New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller with her sixth IAD installment, Kiss of a Demon King. In 2010, Kiss of a Demon King earned Kresley her second RITA award. 2011 brought Cole her second #1 NYT bestseller with Dreams of a Dark Warrior.

She lives in Florida with her husband and far too many animals. She spends any free time traveling and enjoys all things related to boats and water.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I completely agree with you, Ann!
I don’t know many authors who can world-build like KC. 🙂
There were some serious surprises in this one (in my opinion). I cannot wait for the next one!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
