“Wickedly brilliant, dark and addictive!” – Jodi Ellen Malpas, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“You know that feeling you get when you don’t want a book to end? Every one of Skye Warren’s books is like that for me. The Knight is no different. Masterful story-weaving pulls you in but it’s the characters that truly hold you captive. Intriguing and page-turning, the Knight delivers with a powerful punch.” – K.L. Kreig, USA TODAY bestselling author--This text refers to the paperback edition.

First off. The description for The Knight is so deceptive, because it gives the impression that the female lead - Avery James has finally grown some “back bone”, and has stopped being “a pawn” (nothing could be more further from the truth). The very least I was hoping for was the reason why Gabriel threw her out after taking her virginity at the end of Book 1, but NO. I guess the Author wants the reader to use their imagination and fill in the blanks. It seems to be the theme of this whole POINTLESS series of books, plots and twists that arises, but goes nowhere, just leaves more questions unanswered and me wondering “WTF is going on”.
Two books down and I’m no better off knowing what the hell is going on in this series. I’ve wasted £3.99 on this dud and now I’m holding out hope that the Author will somehow get it together, stop the unnecessary Avery James ramblings and tie up all the loose ends that been created since the first book. Oh well, on to the next book, in for a penny in for a pound.
Avery finds the diary of her dead mother and so sets off a chain of events in motion. Secrets, lies all start to spill out. We are still left waiting for the biggest secret of all to be revealed... How did her father lose the family fortune. We still know much about the father and this is going to be the pinnacle of the story as events begin to unfold.
I am actually starting to fall in love with Gabriel and this book sees a more caring side to him. He's not just the hard faced business man that every is scared of but respects. I just love the way Gabriel calls Avery "little virgin"; Gabriel is very cryptic in some of his responses to Avery. We know he is trying to protect her... but from what?!?
Some questions have been answered but there a still a whole more to come. With every answer comes another 2 or 3 questions. The suspense is actually killing me know. I am so desperate to read The Castle it's not even funny! You need to read this series!
We’ve all been in situations where knowing something, doesn’t mean you make wise choices. Which to me seems to be the theme of this book. Avery is like a moth drawn to the flame, and she can’t turn her back on Gabriel for good. As the story progresses we, as readers learn, that there’s a lot going on underneath the surface. And I have a feeling we’ve barely scratched said surface so far.
Just as with the first book, for every new thing Skye reveals, there’s at least just as many things that we do not know yet.
Overall I’d say that I did enjoy this second book. But I missed the many references to Greek Mythology, that Skye used in Pawn. There’s still some in this book, but not as many which means it does seem a bit like they’re just there to keep the theme going. As opposed to being as clever and awesome, as they were in the first book. The biggest reference we get here, is that Avery’s mom, Helen, was a beautiful as Helen of Troy. I mean, that part is just so overused by now. How many women are casually mentioned to be as beautiful as the woman that launched a thousand ships? This year alone, I think I’ve read at least 5 books where that’s used as a description of someones beauty. And personally, I think I’m just over it. Mostly because that kind of beauty should be unique. But it really isn’t anymore.
However, the real reason that the book has lost 1 heart rating, is because of the lack of originality and because of Avery. The more I read this book, the more it seemed like its inspired by the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy. I know that the alpha male and innocent virgin concept isn’t exactly new, and I know it’ll be used many times again in the future. And I’m okay with that! But when there’s first a scene of Avery kneeling for Gabriel, after he commands her. And later on, where he kneels for her, after she commands him… well I just about thought I was reading about Christian Grey instead of Gabriel Miller.
I know there’s symbolism to be found in the surrender you display by kneeling, but still! The way it was done was a little too close for me to find it original, new or even different. But that’s not even the worst part. To me Avery becomes more of an indecisive cry baby in this book. She keeps blaming Gabriel for just about any and every ailment in the world. Even when she learns that there’s so much more going on, in her head she keeps reverting back to blaming him. For me that became too much and I felt like screaming: “make up your bloody mind”. Because all her backwards and forwards made me so impatient!
I know it by now must sound like I disliked the book. But I didn’t! And I’m still going to continue with the series!
Gabriel fights how he feels, but he still has an air of ruthlessness when it comes to Avery.
As pieces begin to fall into place, more revelations bring more questions and each answer only adds more confusion and deception.
The suspense never let up throughout the book. With each page, I was waiting with baited breath for answers.
I have enjoyed how these two characters have evolved and I cannot wait to see how their story ends in The Castle. Avery has grown into quite a formidable character, who is more than a match for Gabriel Miller.
I haven't been able to put this series down. 5 stars all the way so far, can't wait to start The Castle
