Dead of Winter by Kresley Cole may be the most exhilarating installment of the Arcana Chronicles to date, with the stakes higher than ever, and Evie’s heart torn between two lovers in one impossible choice.
Can Evie convince her rival loves to work together? Their survival depends on it in this third book of #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole’s Arcana Chronicles, a nonstop action tale of rescue, redemption, and a revenge most wicked.
Evie was almost seduced by the life of comfort that Death offered her, until Jack was threatened by two of the most horrific Arcana, The Lovers. She will do anything to save him, even escape Death’s uncanny prison, full of beautiful objects, material comforts and stolen glances from a former love.
Despite leaving a part of her heart behind with Death, Evie sets out into a frozen and perilous post-apocalyptic wasteland to meet up with her allies and launch an attack on The Lovers and the vast army they command. Such formidable enemies require a battle plan, and the only way to kill them once and for all may mean Evie, Jack, and Death allying. Evie doesn’t know what will prove more impossible: surviving slavers, plague, Bagmen and other Arcana or convincing Jack and Death to work together.
Two heroes returned
There’s a thin line between love and hate, and Evie just doesn’t know where she stands with either Jack or Death. Will this unlikely trio be able to defeat The Lovers without killing one another first?
There’s nothing like a love triangle in a post-apocalyptic world, amidst a battle between teenagers imbued with magical powers inspired by the Major Arcana of the Tarot. This latest installment of the Arcana Chronicles is bigger and grander than anything that’s come before. With Dead of Winter, Cole’s story takes on an epic scale — and it’s a breathtaking, roller-coaster ride for both the characters and readers alike.
The romantic tension between Evie and her two paramours is palpable — with both Death and Jack offering plenty to entice her heart (and readers’ hearts, too). Cole does an excellent job of deftly balancing the romantic aspect of the story, while still propelling the war between the Arcana forward, along with Evie’s quest to end the cycle once and for all.
Smart, sexy, and un-put-downable … Dead of Winter is in stores January 6th, and should NOT be missed.
