SYNOPSIS:
The power of pleasure…
Gabriel Miller took everything from me. My family. My innocence. My home. The only thing I have left is the determination to get back what’s mine.
He thinks he’s beaten me. He thinks he’s won. What he doesn’t realize is that every pawn has the chance to become a queen.
And the game has only just begun.
THE KNIGHT is book two in the Endgame series from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren about revenge and seduction in the game of love.

"A puzzle needs to be solved. A game needs to be played. 
A house of cards needs to come crashing down."

In The Knight, Skye Warren toys with her reader the way Gabriel Miller toys with Avery St. James. She gives a little and then snatches it away. Whether it's a hint or a clue or a glimpse of vulnerability, a modicum of emotion, she dangles the treat before us just before pulling it away, locking it up. Gabriel Miller is just the same, showing crumbs of affection, granting moments of kindness, allowing brief bits of truth to surface before guarding himself again, putting the shields firmly in place. As the reader, we are Avery. Vulnerable to whatever pain might come next. Completely in the dark about the truths of the past. Grasping for straws as we're taken along through this labyrinth of secrets and heartbreak.

"He toys with me, letting me run only to pick me up by my tail. It’s a twisted game, meant to amuse him, meant to scare me."

The Knight picks up just where The Pawn left us but it evolves into a story with a much different feel to it. This book follows Avery and Gabriel as they navigate the rest of their arrangement. But more, it's Avery's journey toward uncovering the secrets of her family and her vain attempt to hold on to the remnants of her past. Secrets are unearthed, questions are raised, a whodunit mystery unravels, and while so much from the first book feels resolved, an entirely new subplot emerges.

Skye Warren's writing is just breathtaking and her storytelling is as dark and delicious as ever in The Knight. The twists and turns in this installment never cease, the games of seduction and submission kept me riveted. While I didn't love this book in quite the same way I loved The Pawn (one of my absolute FAVORITE books of 2016!) this was a satisfying follow-up. I'm addicted. It's been a good long while since I read a trilogy, and this series reminded me of all the reasons I enjoy them. I can't wait to see how this story wraps up in the last book.
