The opening and closing tableau of POISON PRINCESS was so powerful, it dwarfs the rest of the book in my memory. ENDLESS KNIGHT, to it’s credit, is more about the overall high than any one, single moment. Evie survives danger after danger, interwoven with the strategy necessary to survive the Arcana, and unflinchingly faces the legacy of her card without surrendering agency or control of her current choices.
As with any Immortals after Dark book, MACRIEVE offers romance, violence, and slap stick comedy. In addition to this tried and true receipt, however, is a blend of gender politics and psychological scarring that may have less universal appeal. Chloe Todd’s transition from cut-throat, professional athlete to Lorean mate is a high point, and Cole did a great job blending the skills and mentality of a top athlete with the grit necessary to survive in the supernatural world.
Evie and Jack reminded me a lot of a teenage Mackayla and Jericho from Karen Marie Moning’s Fever series. A lot. Evie starts out as this Southern beauty with a sweet if superficial disposition who begins seeing things that can’t be real–terrifying things. Jack is the wordly wise bad boy without an inch of softness. He’s ruthless and hard and he forces Evie to survive in the new world they find themselves in.
DREAMS OF A DARK WARRIOR is a fast paced, violent, smoking hot thrill-ride of a book, and I loved every minute of it. From the moment twelve-year-old Reginleit the Radiant walks into a mead hall filled with wenching berserkers (yeah, I did a double take at the number “twelve”, too), this story breaks the humdrum expectations of a “soul mate” driven paranormal romance.
