My Rating:  5 stars

I read and finished this book while I was in New Orleans, while I got to meet the author even!  Here's my picture with her.

Once again I am so in love with this series!  I know a lot of people hate love triangles, but this one was okay, in fact I loved both guys, and can't decide who I want her to choose!  Well, I kind of know, maybe.  If you haven't read the first two books in the series, you probably ought to stop reading here.  Go back and read my reviews of the first two instead, Poison Princess and Endless Knight.  I won't be able to help any spoilers for those two books from here on out.

At the end of the last book, Evie had taken off, left Death in order to try to save Jack.  He's been taken by the Lovers, and the way that they "love" their prisoners is torture.  And most people don't survive the torture in one piece.  But her allies from before have joined up with an army, and are using it to protect themselves and others.  While in their search to not only save Jack, but also other people that the Lovers kidnap, Evie will run into other members of the Arcana, some foes, others that may become allies.  Death will return, and will decide to do what he can to convince Evie that she is meant to be his.  But Jack will do the same, that Evie is his.  

Evie must determine if one is really better for her, or if she is really right for that one, would Jack be better off with someone else? And can she trust Jack?  Is he still keeping things from her, like what actually happened with  her mother?  And then there is the Fool, who seems to be not so much on their side, but also still trying to help them when he can.  

So  many twists and turns in this.  I can't wait to read on!
