The Jack (The Immortal Series Book 2) by M.K. Harkins

Four Star
The Jack by MK Harkins was a good change from what I normally read. In a world where Readers and Seers think that all the Jack’s are dead. But one remains and he risks everything to save the woman he still loves and her husband who use to be his best friend. Archer is very interesting character. He was betrayed by the ones held close. Everyone saw him as a traitor. I loved Sadie. She was super fun I loved her personality. I definitely took issues with how every one treated Archer. It’s not his fault who his mother was. Plus they grew up with him they should’ve understood what was happening to him. Most especially Devon. The author dis a great job putting this story together. I was a little lost at first but it quickly come together. The thing I love most about reading is stepping into a world someone else has created. This author did great taking me away fro m my surroundings and being completely focused on this book.

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two) by M.K. Harkins — Review by Cynthia Ayala

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two)The Jack by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Picking up where the last book left off The Jack follows Archer on his road to redemption. What’s so lovely about redemption stories is that we get to see the complications that come with wanting to redeem one’s self. Archer was a minor character in the previous novel, and now he finally gets to shine. He seems so different than he was in the previous novel because two years have passed, allowing him to think on all the lies that led to his betrayal, lies he thought of as truth, forcing him now to come to terms with his actions and the consequences. It is very nice to see his character grow. In the previous novel, again, he was a minor character and very flat, static. That was okay because the story was not about him and he was, very much, a plot device. Everything is different now. Now he has a chance to shine, and he has that chance to shine. Archer is far more enigmatic in this novel than he was not a previous novel his narrative the description of his little twitches, quirks, and personality make him jump off the pages.

He is not the only character that gets to shine. Their’s Sadie who is the last Seer. Sadie has lived her life and isolation because the Jacks killed all the other Seers. So naturally, she harbors this resentment and hatred toward all things Jack including Archer understandably even though he is only half, Jack. Ultimately the fact that the story goes between Archer and Sadie makes the story thrive. It is a very different formula than the previous novel that only followed one person’s perspective, but now the story goes back and forth between the male perspective in a female perspective and two characters who have similar common denominators as far as their lives are concerned.

Both characters are very different than what Harkins has given readers in the previous novel. They have different dynamics that make the story flow. Their romance is also very different than the previous novel, and both characters have such defining qualities that make them likable to the reader.

It is an entertaining story, and much like its predecessor, its fast pace it keeps moving it is honestly novel one could probably read one day because it just moves so quickly. However, there’s also a lot going on in the story. Some scenes just like in the previous novel do seem a little rushed, but they do not hinder the story or distracted reader. However there’s still so much history that could be explored, there’s so much in the backstory that could make this novel have a higher level of depth than it already has.

Ultimately at the end of the day, it is an excellent novel to rain because it just moves very quickly, keeps the readers on their toes and has fantastic character development.

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book 2) by M.K. Harkins – Review by Jenni Bishop

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two)The Jack by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book 2) M.K. Harkins is another example of why she is an excellent storyteller. I have read the first book, The Reader and really really enjoyed that one but this one went the extra mile. I loved all the angst and suspense, the action and all of the surprise twists and turns and lets not forget the romantic tension between our main characters. This story is enthralling and engaging and I was unable to put it down. Being the number one suspect and being separated from those he loves leaves Archer with conflicting feelings when faced between helping them or not. But is he really who they think he is? This story is well written and will take you on a ride to remember.

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book 2)
By M.K. Harkins
Rated 5 stars!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. This is a great sequel!! It blends well with the first one (The Reader). The beginning starts out two years after the ending of all Jacks. Archer is living a life he doesn’t want. He secretly watches Ann and her family from afar. Since he is supposed to have perished and possibly committed murder he can not approach or he will be committed to prison after Devon works him over. So when a slip of a girl approaches Archer to warn of impending doom for Ann and her family. What will Archer do? Give himself up for Ann again? Or let her perish? What a great start right?!

I enjoy hanging out with these characters. It started in The Reader and it continues here in The Jack. We still get to see Devon and Ann but we are able to learn more about Archer (yes!) and Lucy. Lucy is a force to be reckoned with..I can’t wait to get her story (Hopefully). Archer…..well he can’t catch a break! He seems to be in the same position as the last book. Love triangle! Grrr! That poor boy! He has skills and is cute with his blond looks. He is fun and that smile is charming. When it isn’t covered by sadness and guilt.

There are new characters (good and bad) that we meet. They all add some fun and adventure to the story. A few we get more insight as they have a more active role. My favorite was Sadie. She has some fire and stubbornness to her. Plus she is a forward thinker which will help out the main crew. Her and Archer are kinda like oil and water….at first.

The story drew me in and kept my interest. I loved the idea of the Readers, Jacks and Seers. Plus they live in a mountain! Seriously how ingenious! The gadgets they have are so cool! It’s a fascinating world these people live in. The story moves forward nicely and I struggled to figure out who the bad people were. Which was awesome! I enjoy stories that intrigue me and keep me guessing. Ha ha that’s what makes me speed through….so I can figure it out. The author keeps me interested by giving information out but not too much. Very well done!

This is easily a favorite series and I look forward to reading more. I can’t wait to see how Archer, Sadie, Devon and Ann fare in future stories. Oh and I don’t want to forget Lucy!

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two)The Jack by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I give The Jack (The Immortal Series Book 2) by M.K. Harkins, 4 stars.
*This review may contain spoilers from book 1.*

Archer just exists now. His once best friends hate him. The woman of his dreams is in love with the man he considered like a brother. He cannot move on. But when a woman warns him that his friends are in danger, he cannot only not get her out of his head, he thinks she might be of a race thought to be long gone. Does he warn these people who now hate him?

Sadie is the last seer, and it has been foretold that she is to kill the last Jack. They are an evil race and must be permanently eradicated. But then she starts events that have her surrounded by Archer and the Readers. The more she gets to know Archer, the more she feels for him. Are they sure he is the last Jack? Can she go through with it?

This is such a great book. It has been a while since since I read book 1, and it took a little bit for me to get back into it, but once I did I could not put it down. There is so much going on and so many twists and turns that you will never see what happens next. Incredible writing makes this story even more interesting. Sadie is a great new character and I like how she interacts with the others while keeping her secret to herself.

I recommend reading book one first, but I highly recommend this book and series for lovers of fantasy with some suspense thrown in for good measure.

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book #2) by M.K. Harkins – Review by Angela Hayes

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two)The Jack by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 

The Jack is the second book in The Immortal Series by M.K. Harkins. This is an extremely good New Adult fantasy- full of action mystery, suspense, danger, secrets, emotion, intrigue, and romance. Although you could read this book as a standalone, I really recommend reading The Reader before setting off on this adventure. The Reader is where we meet Archer and what happens in that book really sets the tone and direction of Archer’s story, so having all that information would be highly beneficial, and allow you to fully comprehend the situation, character, motivation, and back story.
I must admit that I was quite interested to see how this story would unfold, especially considering the events in the previous book. I had several scenarios and directions that I thought the story might take. BUT……THERE WAS NO WAY THAT I COULD HAVE EVER PREDICTED ANY OF THE EVENTS IN THIS BRILLIANT STORY!!! WOW!!! My mind is still reeling with it all. I’m still thinking about it several days later. A sure sign of a really great story! Fantastic!
There is quite a lot going on between the covers of this book, and I enjoyed following along as everything played out. I can always rely on Ms. Harkins to deliver a captivating story, no matter the genre, and this story/series is testament to that. It’s been two years since The Reader, but within minutes it was all coming back to me, and I was once more fully immersed in the fantastic world that Ms. Harkins created. Ms. Harkins uses her wonderful word-smithing capabilities to craft interesting and unforgettable characters, as well as an extraordinary world in which her characters, and story, come to life. Her attention to detail, intricately woven plot, descriptive language and phrases, are fantastic- painting my mind with vivid images. Then there were the twists and turns that left me quite speechless- she’s such a clever storyteller!!!!! These incredibly surprising developments really had me in a flipping frenzy, devouring the pages to find out what happens and how it all works out. I was definitely hooked from the very beginning and didn’t set it down until I had consumed the whole thing- reading it in one sitting. That ending! OMG- I wasn’t ready to leave! I need to know more! Please let there be another instalment in the works!!!
As always, I am looking forward to Ms. Harkin’s next book- whatever it may be.

Thank you, Ms. Harkins!

The Jack by M.K. Harkins – Review by Moriah Venable

]The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two)The Jack by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Jack is the second novel in the Immortal series by M. K. Harkins. This is my third novel by this author.

A half breed, Archer, is torn between two races, The Jacks which are a race who kill for sports and The Readers, a race that is trying to save mankind.

Years before, Archer betrays the Readers and ever since has been living alone and filled with unrequited love.

But when Archer becomes drawna to Sadie who is not only a Seer but has been given the task of killing him, which side will win? Will Sadie be able to kill him or will her heart sway her from her mission?

I really enjoyed this novel. I love novels where people have forbidden love and are able to overcome the obstacles to finally be happy with someone.

Even though it’s set two years after the first book, I really didn’t feel lost at while reading and was very engaged in the plot.

I liked Archer’s characters who is trying to seek redemption and I loved his journey and really felt for him.

I hope we get another book in the series.

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book 2)
By M.K. Harkins

The Jack is the second book in the Immortal series by M.K. Harkins. This series is off to an awesome start and can’t wait to see what happens in following books. I love the writing style of this series so far and I really hope the writing style continues throughout the series. It’s the exciting carry on from the reader, which I would highly recommend that you read first. With the Jack we get taken a couple of years in the future, where at the end of the Reader we saw the Jacks were just about made extinct. What I found in the Jack was the characters growth, which makes for an even better book. You will love this book especially if you like all the drama, the suspense and of course what is a book with out some romance thrown in to. I seriously recommend that this series is read, you will love it.

The Jack (The Immortal Series Book Two)The Jack by M.K. Harkins
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Jack is book two in The Immortal Series written by M.K. Harkins. This story is part two following The Readers. In book one you met a lot of the characters and they are also in The Jack’s however this story focuses more on Archer and the Jack’s. There are new characters introduced and you feel the change coming in the story you just aren’t sure which way it will go yet. With Archer back home with the Readers can he prove his Innocence with the help of his friends and an unlikely seer. Or will the Jack’s come out of hiding and finish what they started with the War..and then there is the Reader who has betrayed everyone…if only they could figure it out before it’s too late…
