War returns to Malzaria in this epic conclusion to The Skullborn Trilogy.  Deep in the wastes called the Bonelands, rival crime guilds and renegade Bloodspeakers battle through the ruined streets of Corinth.  At the heart of the doomed city lies a magical portal which grants access to the dark citadel of Chul Gaerog, wherein lie the secrets of the long dead Blood Queen.
  Armies amass to the south as powerful forces from the Jlantrian and Den'nari Empires make ready to clash with the monstrous Black Army and its frightful leader, the black giant called Ghul, agent of the Cabal and ally of the dreaded Iron Count.
  And deep in the heart of the black tower, the dream witch Ijanna Taivorkan comes face-to-face with the dark angel Calladar, once guardian to the Blood Queen and self-appointed master of the citadel.  Only the fallen knight Azander Dane can help her survive her trials, but first he must face the demons of his past, as well as a merciless squad of Jlantrian hunters sent to destroy the woman he's sworn to protect...

My Review~

It's here. It's finally here. I finally got the answer to my prayers and was given more of the superlicious Jaxen Gramm. Okay, I wanted more of the amazing story too, but we all know that the reason we are reading this series is for more Jaxen Gramm, the great story that lies within the pages is just a great added bonus. 

Before I continue to obsess over Jaxen let me obsess over the story. Evernight starts right where Everlasting left off with lots of what the hell's and this can't be good. And it pretty much continued on like that for most of the book. I was constantly yelling and cursing. This book definitely frazzled my nerves. I was totally bipolar reading this book. One minute I was happy and ah-ing and the next I was yelling or saying what the hell. I can't tell you how many times I asked the question, "Can't they just catch a freaking break?" And then this amazing thing happened where... um, wait, I can't tell you that. But trust me when I say that this moment was HUGE and made me squeal like a little girl. I may have danced a little too. Anyway, the story of Faye is definitely explosive. 

But it's not only the story that makes this an excellent read, the characters are what really sell's it. Candace Knoebel manages to create characters that make you feel like you have known them forever. Every character plays a key role in developing the story. No character is useless. I can honestly say I love every character in this series. The main character Faye is one of my favorite female characters. Strong, funny, a warrior, determined, loyal, and can hold her own against any force, Faye is definitely a strong female lead. Then there is Weldon, the dark, witty, sarcastic half demon that adds the perfect balance to Jaxen's dark and brooding demeanor. Did someone say Jaxen??? Yes let's talk about Jaxen. In Evernight we really get to see more of Jaxen and what makes him tick and we get to see a side of him that I really didn't think I would ever see. And did I mention how amazing he is in a fight? No, my bad, he is. Really Jaxen is the best and is the perfect pairing for Faye. Her equal in every aspect. These two make the perfect team.

Evernight is a story full of action, incredible characters, twists and turns, magic, and comedy. There wasn't a second where I wanted to put this book down. I got everything I wanted in this book with Jaxen, Jaxen, Jaxen!


"He's a perfect storm... a force that can't be contained - that should never be contained."

The best description of Jaxen ever!

What comes next, once your happily ever after has been written?
  Real life.
  Nicole and Alec are doing their best to live the HEA she's been dreaming for and writing about in her books. The problem is she's been coping with her newly achieved success as an author and the responsibilities that are transitioning her away from the introverted life she prefers. He's neck deep in medical school and stuck at the hospital almost every waking hour.
  Something's got to give.
  Sometimes, what looks like happily ever after from the start can become something entirely different on the other side.  Finding time together can be a challenge, but Nicole and Alec seem to have things figured out. That is, until Nicole's publisher sends her on an extended book tour for her upcoming release, putting an unexpected strain on their relationship. When Alec begins hanging out with his ex, who also happens to be the mother of his little girl, Nicole can't help feeling that maybe her ever after is about to turn into a never mind.
  Things turn from bad to worse when Nicole is faced with what she perceives as betrayal, leaving the door open to Greg, her new public relations rep who is more than willing to offer up a shoulder to dump her woes on. Betrayal can be a two-way street and Nicole must now decide which way the story goes from here.
  Writing a happily ever after was so much easier than actually living one
