And the game has only just begun.

This book was absolutely fantastic! I loved the first book The Pawn but Skye Warren out did herself with this one! The Knight has a lot of suspense, twists and turns and the reader is left on the edge of their seat waiting and wanting to know what happens next. This book had so much depth and a well-developed plot. The characters were so dynamic I feel like I got to know so much more about them in this second installment. I stayed up all night to read this book and by the time I was done I could not even sleep because this story was so stuck in my mind. I spent hours trying to process all my emotions and my feelings for everything that occurred in this book.
The book picks up where The Pawn ended and we get to see so many new things with Avery and Gabriel. Avery is forced to grow up and has to learn to live on her own and to take her life into her own hands. She is given so many hard decisions to make and is abandoned by most of the people she has ever loved. We see her emotions and struggles in this book. We get to go deep into her soul about her life when she was a child and how she feels and reacts to her past in the present. I loved her character in this book! She was so strong willed and would never give up no matter how bad her life got, she would get back up and fight for whatever little dignity she had left.
Gabriel: "God, you really did forget. You thought I was your knight in **** armor, riding in to defend your castle."
Avery: "No," I whisper but I'm terrified he's right. I thought I had kept my guard up, but now I see how utterly defenseless I am. He's not going to save my castle. He's going to burn it down.
Gabriel was on fire in this installment! I hated him in The Pawn but Skye got me to love him so much in this book! We got to see so many different sides of Gabriel. We get to see inside his soul and into the depths of his heart. On the outside he is so hard and so put together but on the inside there is a broken man, a man dying to give his heart to someone, even though he would never show it. His filthy mouth and the way he revealed all his dynamic parts in this book set me on fire! I loved him more by the time the book was over.
Avery: "My fingertip touches each piece on the black side-king. queen. Knight. An unusual piece because of the way it moves. Forward and sideways. The only piece able to jump other pieces. Not the most powerful on the board, but the most dangerous in closed positions."
This book had so many twists and turns I was not expecting! One thing that is fascinating is how the plot turned from something so somber to something so intense that by the time I was done reading I needed a moment to catch my breath. Let's just say that all the characters in this book are hiding secrets. You think you may know them but wait until you read this book you will be left with your mouth open and wanting to read the next book as soon as possible. Skye Warren took me on a roller coaster of a ride. She took me to places I never could have imagined with the in depth plot and the well development of every character in the book. I cannot wait for The Castle I need more answers, more of this amazing story and more of the fantastic characters Skye was able to make come to life.

This book is strife with tension. There's lots of anger but it's clouded in vague innuendo. Even the sex is clouded in a game that Avery doesn't fully understand. Seeing as she sold her virginity to Gabriel and he is the only man she has ever been with. The End game series is very intriguing and I look forward to the installment.
Avery has found herself in a hard and dangerous game of chess. The question is if she will allow herself to be just a pawn or if she will make it her mission to win the game. She was such a strong heroine and probably one of my favorite Skye Warren characters. It was a joy being inside her head.
The author surprised me with this book. She took the storyline to places I didn't expect and it was such a joy to discover every secret and uncover every lie that hid among the pages.
Avery must now get back what's hers. She wants the house she grew up in and she will get it no matter the cost. She has already sacrificed herself and she won't let it be for nothing. She plays a game of push and pull with Gabriel but who will win and who is really her enemy? Read to find out!
I cannot wait for The Castle and see what the author has in store for us!
I highly recommend it. With Skye Warren you cannot go wrong. Expect darkness, passion and twists and turns that will have your head spinning! I loved it!

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!
I haven't been able to put this series down. 5 stars all the way so far, can't wait to start The Castle
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.
