Synopsis:Can Evie convince her rival loves to work together? Their survival depends on it in this third book of #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole’s Arcana Chronicles, a nonstop action tale of rescue, redemption, and a revenge most wicked.

Heartbreaking decisions
Evie was almost seduced by the life of comfort that Death offered her—until Jack was threatened by two of the most horrific Arcana, The Lovers. She will do anything to save him, even escape Death’s uncanny prison, full of beautiful objects, material comforts…and stolen glances from a former love.

Uncertain victory
Despite leaving a part of her heart behind with Death, Evie sets out into a frozen and perilous post-apocalyptic wasteland to meet up with her allies and launch an attack on The Lovers and the vast army they command. Such formidable enemies require a battle plan, and the only way to kill them once and for all may mean Evie, Jack, and Death allying. Evie doesn’t know what will prove more impossible: surviving slavers, plague, Bagmen and other Arcana—or convincing Jack and Death to work together.

Two heroes returned
There’s a thin line between love and hate, and Evie just doesn’t know where she stands with either Jack or Death. Will this unlikely trio be able to defeat The Lovers without killing one another first?

 
Review:
This book was on the top of my birthday/Christmas list, this entire series has actually made it into my top favorite must have sections and I find that I will always recommend it when someone asks me for something new to read.

Not only did I order the print copy of this book but I found that I could not wait for it to arrive in my mail box and went ahead and ordered the e-book just so I could go ahead and sink my claws into the next part of Evie's story.

In Endless night we learned quite a bit about our mysterious would be villain who is not so bad as he seems. And lets face it, after learning the truth about Death and the trials he has face when it came to life and the fact that no matter what she did, or who he was  he always fell for The Emperess, I found myself firmly on team Death's side. This book only strengthened my resolve. Seriously I wanted to shake some sense into Evie as she struggle with her choice of men.

Don't get me wrong I love the cajun but my love for Death is much more. The fact that he comes for Evie, lowers his walls and takes up arms with a man he despises all for her makes me want to just throw myself at him.

More arcana reveal themselves in this book, some of them fall, some of them disappear, and of course our heroes are forced with obstacles and choices that you cannot even begin to imagine. Kresley Cole takes you on a roller coaster ride that leaves you breathless and has your stomach churning after wards.

Evie is also recovering more of her memories of her past life and the atrocities she committed as she comes face to face with the Lovers and learns more truths then one could possibly bare.

I was dying to see how they rescued Jack and even Selena in this book. Kresley Cole provides enough love and action that I read through this book in five hours. You get just about everything you could ever want in this book and then some, from gore to love, horror's to inspiration. I was riveted and as I found myself coming to the end I wanted to scream.



I literally posted over social media my annoyance that I had to wait for another book because if you thought Endless Knight left off on a cliff hanger, honey you haven't seen anything yet to this whopper of an ending.

This was money well spent and all I can say is "PLEASE RELEASE #4 NOW!"
