4 Hearts, Victoria Evers

Victoria Evers – The Marked Mage Chronicles #2 – Covetous

51FZrvvrkcLShe is marked. She is on the run. But can she really escape her fate, especially when so-called fate moves in next door?


Heaven Wants Me Dead. 
Hell Wants Me As Their Weapon. 
And I’m in Bed With A Devil. 

I was just your average seventeen-year-old girl, until I was Marked. Some may sell their souls; mine was taken. Not only are angelic hunters out to kill me, but Hell’s deadliest Mage—the devilishly charming Crown Prince of Lust—is just as desperate to get his hands on me…again. No, he doesn’t want me dead. This seductive trickster only has one thing on his mind: making me his new blushing bride. 

He can call me his “mate” all he wants. I’m not about ready to sign my soul away into eternal damnation, no matter how gorgeous he may be. But after two months on the run, I realize I can’t escape the ugly truth. If I wish to fight another day, I just may have to make a deal with the worst kind of devil. The kind that loves me. 

I thought I knew what rock bottom was, but this is only the beginning. As the great poet once said, “Hell is empty and all the devils are here.”


I awaited this book very much. I was just so curious about how this story continues. Kat escaped Blaine -but barely-, and now she starts to settle into her new life with her aunt. Her family gone, the only thing she can rely on is Reese and his visits. But they cannot be together really when Blaine looms in the darkness, closing in on her. Then he moves in next door and all Hell starts to break loose again.

I am totally cheering for Blaine and Kat. So my inner fangirl started screaming excitedly when Blaine moved in next door to Kat and started to appear more than Reese. He is not the so-called devil everyone seems to think. And this time, Kat starts to realize this also. I was so, soooo frustrated and angry that I had to wait until the end of the book for this. She starts to accept that she loves him, I think. But the ending.

God of all Cliff-Hangers… What did I ever do to you??? The ending was absolutely infuriating. I so hope Victoria does the right thing for them in the next book. I trust you, Victoria. But I am watching you. I hated Kat a little bit. She was slow and frustratingly stupid sometimes. And I have to be honest, I felt like the story is dragging a little bit. We found out some pieces of information here and there, especially about the parents of Kat, but we did not really delve into anything really. I would be more curious about them. Her legacy. What does this mean for her? What is the true fate of their mating? Because I think every piece of information that we get, every piece of little detail indicating that she will doom Earth or become evil is just bullshit. I would like to see it from Blaine´s side also because so far this mating does not seem so evil. And so does he. I think there is more to it, but we do not really get to know this.

I loved the book, great story and I am curious about the next step.
