I finished reading Kresley Cole’s Endless Knight last night, Peeps, and let me tell you – it Rocks! I could hardly sleep after closing the book as I keep thinking about the storyline and running scenarios over in my head, trying to figure out what certain characters are going to do.
I’ve always had a bit of a fascination with tarot cards, having had several readings in the past that turned out to be scarily accurate. Now I see the tarot in an entirely different light however, and I can’t wait to go out and purchase a deck of my own, just so I can see the details that Kresley mentions in Endless Knight. I’ll be searching for some good background books on the tarot as well. I want to know if they do actually tell a story on their own. I may never have the ability to read cards for others but that doesn’t mean that I can’t enjoy them for their own sake, lol.
Anyway, I digress… I have posted my review of Endless Knight and I strongly encourage you to pick up the series. It’s a supernatural Hunger Games that will appeal to teens and adult readers alike. It’s got action, horror, intrigue, the paranormal, and romance – something for almost every reader. Grab your copy today!
Endless Knight Review
If you are new to the series, you can also read my review of the previous book, Poison Princess.

Book 13 of Nalini Singh’s Psy-Changeling series will be titled Shield of Winter and will be releasing in June 2014. Nalini shared the back cover blurb in her latest newsletter:
“The alpha author of paranormal romance” (Booklist) draws us back into her extraordinary Psy-Changeling world, a world torn between violence and peace, passion and ice…”
Assassin. Soldier. Arrow. That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of all he’s done, he exists in the shadows, far from the hope his people can almost touch—if only they do not first drown in the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life.
For if the Psy race is to survive, the empaths must wake…
Having rebuilt her life after medical “treatment” that violated her mind and sought to stifle her abilities, Ivy should have run from the black-clad Arrow with eyes of winter frost. But Ivy Jane has never done what she should. Now, she’ll fight for her people, and for this Arrow who stands as her living shield, yet believes he is beyond redemption. But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy’s fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness…

The official book trailer for Kresley Cole’s Endless Knight has finally been posted on youtube so I can share it here – yay!
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.
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…

Sex has always been deadly for incubus Asher Chain. How far will he go to spare the life of the woman he loves?
WILD HYACINTHE, the new, spicy Crimson Romance title by Nola Sarina and Emily Faith comes out November 4th.
A deadly lover. His perfect mate. Asher is everything Aria’s never dared to imagine: sexy, confident, and rich. But if she convinces him to take her to his bed… her first time may be her last.
Incubus Asher Chain seduces every woman he meets whether he wants to or not, and refuses to let anyone grow close to him. Until the alluring, tattooed waitress Aria Hyacinthe admits she’s been living in her car. Enthralled by her unusual beauty—and terrified he’ll succumb to his deadly, incubus needs—Asher offers her a place to stay.
Living in Asher’s loft above his gym, Aria’s desire for his body is growing more urgent with every touch. Used to being the backward, shy one, in his presence she becomes fierce, captivating, and breaks down Asher’s walls against all his attempts to keep his distance. She has no clue that if he gives in to her passionate pleas, she won’t survive the night, just like all the other women who have fallen victim to his charms.
But the deeper Asher and Aria fall in love, the harder he must fight the incubus in his soul, demanding her life.
WILD HYACINTHE is Nola Sarina & Emily Faith’s spicy, paranormal romance title from Crimson Romance. Represented by Michelle Johnson of Inklings Literary Agency, Nola and Emily have been friends for years and appreciate all things music, art, and romance. Nola’s VESPER titles are available on Amazon.
In WILD HYACINTHE, sexy incubus Asher Chain will sweep you off your feet, toss you in bed and leave you reeling for more.
