12 posts | 11 read | 4 to read
The fiercely-anticipated sequel to the #1 New York Times bestseller Once Upon a Broken Heart, starring Evangeline Fox and the Prince of Hearts on a new journey of magic, mystery, and heartbreak Not every love is meant to be. After Jacks, the Prince of Hearts, betrays her, Evangeline Fox swears she'll never trust him again. Now that shes discovered her own magic, Evangeline believes she can use it to restore the chance at happily ever after that Jacks stole away. But when a new terrifying curse is revealed, Evangeline finds herself entering into a tenuous partnership with the Prince of Hearts again. Only this time, the rules have changed. Jacks isnt the only force Evangeline needs to be wary of. In fact, he might be the only one she can trust, despite her desire to despise him. Instead of a love spell wreaking havoc on Evangelines life, a murderous spell has been cast. To break it, Evangeline and Jacks will have to do battle with old friends, new foes, and a magic that plays with heads and hearts. Evangeline has always trusted her heart, but this time shes not sure she can. . . .

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I was tempted to give this 3 stars. I loved the 1st, but felt the second started…off? It was a libby read, and as the return date loomed, I started to panic. Once I hit the last quarter of the story I was once again hooked! Ended on a terrible, dramatic cliffy!!! (cliffhanger. what? I‘m trying it out) so I will be waiting impatiently for the 3rd. I know some are put off by Garber‘s magical trill to her writing, but I love it. #fantasy

LazyLibrary I feel as though I had an issue with Evangeline‘s character in the first quarter of the book. I can‘t put my finger on what it was that was throwing me off. 3w
emz711 Can not wait for the third! I hope it all comes together 1w

The second installment of the continuing story between Evangeline Fox and Jacks, Prince of Hearts. It was a good read and look forward to the next book.

Easy pick for Sept as I didn‘t read that much with the beginning of the school year and all. I do have a huge stack lined up for Oct! I did devour Stephanie Garber‘s new release so that‘s what I‘m going with this month.

OMG I read it in 1 day today and I can't wait for the next one. YA fantasy about old North mythology is really getting me going.
Jacks is the worst.

Oooh sooo good. Picking up a few days after book 1, this one had it all. Evangeline is just trying to achieve her happily ever after as it is constantly just out of her reach and everyone keeps trying to take it from her. We got some questions answered and I can‘t wait to see what the next book brings. That ending though. #seriesread2022 @TheSpineView

TheSpineView Awesome! 2mo
KristiAhlers Right? I was no no no it‘s not ending like this! But, yup it ended like that! Next year is too far away. 2mo

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. I eagerly waited for this one to release this week! OMG ugly crying with a cliffhanger! I loved this continuation of this series and Jacks and Evangeline are characters that are complex and strong and frustrating but you still root for them! Super fast read.

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks So pretty 💜 2mo
KristiAhlers @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks it‘s pretty without its dust jacket too. I love how the covers are now just as much art at the story they contain. 2mo
Meshell1313 I literally *gasped* at that ending! Too good! How are we supposed to wait a year for the next one 😩 2mo
KristiAhlers @Meshell1313 right??? So not fair! 2mo
i.besteph Unpopular opinion but tbh the chemistry was getting a bit annoying halfway through. BUT THAT ENDING THO?!? I have a million different questions…. Do you think there will be a third book?? I hope so! (edited) 2mo

These two arrived yesterday, but sadly were overshadowed by Nona! 😅 I'm planning to start Silver Under Nightfall pretty soon since it's about vampires and therefore perfect for spooky season! 🎃🍁🍂🦇

And I don‘t usually do this but I opened it and the inside of the jacket is an art print, the 2 MC‘s! He‘s leaning against the fireplace and she‘s standing in front of a mirror.

And the book has pretty purple foiling on the front! (I took such a poor picture, sorry) … ok done … just another book mail day. OwlCrate …

Please be patient with me 😁 two more pictures for this book. If they still have some I totally recommend the book! It‘s also signed & a limited edition.

This is a pretty art card & bookmark that came with the book.

🎧 This is book 2. So if you haven‘t read book 1 then I suggest you turn around and go get it. If you‘ve read book 1 & are thinking about purchasing book 2 then I‘m here to say.

DOOOO IT!

This is a total guilty pleasure ... I loved the Caraval series and this set of books is destined to sit next to it on my shelves! It‘s YA, it‘s tropey … but Jacks!!

If you enjoyed book one, get this one!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 👇🏻

Twainy It‘s exactly what it says it is!

3 boys want Evangeline for different reasons … she loves them all for different reasons but we all know who she belongs with but will never fully admit or commit to.

I love Jacks (AKA the Prince of Hearts)! I can‘t wait for book 3! I already bought a SE of this book!! More Jacks!!

Meshell1313 Can‘t wait for this to come out in Sept! I‘m so jelly you got a sneak peak! 💖 4mo
Twainy @Meshell1313 i have a lower bar with YA as I realize the tropes are a given. I still enjoyed it & can‘t wait to see what the OwlCrate edition looks like in person. 4mo
