When the battle is done . . .
The Emperor unleashes hell and annihilates an army, jeopardizing the future of mankind--but Circe strikes back. The epic clash between them devastates the Arcana world and nearly kills Evie ...more
Let's talk about flight jitters? I mean that feeling when the plane takes off or has turbulence? Now imagine that happening with the mixed excitement of a book, something similar to a heart attack, no?
That's exactly what happened, read the book and endured the turbulence. This book was good, not the ultimate excellence that the ones before it were, but enough to add to flight anxiety.
Although the idea and plots were the same, and it was ...more
Seriously, this better not end badly for Aric. I will freak out and do my ugly cry if I don't get my way.
I also think it's pretty obvious that Jackson is Major Arcana. My money is on the Sun card. There is some serious foreshadowing and light/dark/day/night imagery going on in the last book, Dead of Winter.
Aric gazed down at me. "Your dance studio will always be lit, as will your art studio. The libraries, of course. The pool will be heated as long ...more
Aric please. He's the only reason I'm going to read this book.
I don't want Jack dead. If he's dead and Evie ended up with Death, that wouldn't really be her choice you know. I want her to choose Death out of her own will. (I don't care about her going after Jack in the last book. I won't accept it.)
Update : WTF? Aric missing? Reunite with Death? I've no word for this. No word. Give me the freaking book already.
Don't worry. I won't write any spoiler without warnin ...more
Life and Death.
With his forehead resting against mine, he bit out, “We might be going . . . to hell for this.” But that wasn’t stopping him; pressure grew as he pushed deeper.
I gasped. “Then we’ll rule it together.”
His lips parted. “Es tevi mīlu.” I love you.
For an instant, I saw Jack above me. A moment of time. . . .
I blinked, and I was staring into starry amber eyes again. “I love you too.”
I am still not sure where the games between Evie, Jack and Aric will ...more
I truly believe that each book in this series just gets better! Kresley has an amazing way of sucking me right back into this world and crushing me ...more
Now for spoilers(view spoiler)[: I wondered what Gran had done but was still shocked over the pregnancy. Of course, it does guarantee Evie will strive to survive. Well played, Tarasova. Aric will certainly be willing to protect her at all cost now, even though he was already there. I'm still worried how in the heck Cole will resolve this love triangle. I'll be honest, if Evie spend ...more
If you haven't read the first three books, you are likely to think me crazy for typing this.
Whether Evie ended up with the Cajun or Death, Death is still my favorite book boyfriend in this series<33
Can't wait to read other Arcanas kick ass!!
Review after reading:
Honestly, I've prepared my heart (well, I would still cry a river inside) for my favorite knight to die. In the last few chapters before the book ended when Fortune confronted Evie and the group, I thought for ...more
At the end of Dead of Winter, Richter had just set off a massive earthquake with lava spewing everywhere along with battling Circe and her water tsunami. This causes everyone to scramble and unfortunately some don't scramble successfully.
Evie barely manages to pull herself up and brush herself off. In trying to get back to Fort Arcana, she stumbles upon Sol and his minions. At a disadvantage since Matthew has shut down the voices, she's not sure if Sol knows who she is. But she's tired an ...more
Girl, Evie, why? Why couldn't you hold out for the hottie? What is it about Angsty-Aric that turned you on? The fact he was always crying in his rooms, or crying in the rain, or sulking around, or being scared of what Granny says? There were maybe a combined 5 pages where he was awesome and I thought I could get on board, but every other word out of his mouth was like some bad emo poetry th ...more
PS: I don’t do book summaries since so many other reviewers do.
•Evie kicks ass in the beginning of the book and isn’t depending on others. I loved this turn for her.
•There are some beautiful and heartbreaking moments in this book. The scene juxtaposed between Evie and Jack in the snow where she lets hi ...more
At this point I just want to smack Aric, Evie and (view spoiler)[Jack (*deadened voice* woo hoo he survives....at the cost of killing a well-developed female character....forgive me if I'm not ecstatic about this....) (hide spoiler)] upside their heads and put them in the doghouse because they're driving me up the wall. Aric's a boohoo-you-friendzoned-my-ass mess despite me being #teamAric.

When I heard the news that the ARCANA CHRONICLES were going to stretch two books longer than originally planned I feared that Kresley Cole’s sensational Young Adult trilogy was going to lose some of its shine. Listening to ARCANA RISING cured any doubts that I may have had about the author’s ability to prolong Evie Greene’s story while maintaining the same caliber of writing that I’ve come to expect from this series.
DEAD OF WINTER left fans in the lurch over many things, ...more
#TeamJack !!! ALL THE FUCKING WAY. My delicious cajun boy ;)
AND... #TeamAric... In another life perhaps.
NO NO NO NO

After I read that awful cliffhanger at the end of Dead of Winter, I was feeling rather...
I still believe that there's no way in hell that Jack's really dead so
But, since the original fourth book in the series (recently titled Day Zero) that was supposed to be released this summer was demoted to a novella, this new (and FARTHER AWAY) release date is highly upsetting!
In this fourth novel, fifth book, of the Arcana Chronicles, Kresley Cole drops one motherfucking, huge-ass plunge into book-insanity. And I loved every single moment of it.
It would be a crime to say this book wasn't full of surprises, titillating scenes (with quite some tit-bouncing, too, might I say), but the real winner for me?
(view spoiler)[Aric and Evie get it on. Again and again and again. (hide spoi ...more
But here we are in book 4 and honestly, this book was kind of boring. The first half draggggeeedddddd and n ...more
ARCANA RISING picks up where DEAD OF WINTER left off and that is a world of heartbreak and despair. I will try to make this review completely spoiler free just in case you haven't read the series yet, in which case you need to move your butt and get started. Now lets get into what I really liked about this book.
ARCANA RISING will make your heart race. It's packed with enough action and desolate settings to keep you on the edge of your seat and lets not mistake this for just another young adu
For some reason, unknown to me, I did not read this book when it was realised. Dont get me wrong - I was excited. I would finally be able to see what happened to Eve. What about Aric? Who survived? Who didnt? It was time to start reading and ... I couldnt.
"He drew my hand from him. “Armor or no, I’ve got your dagger in my chest. You love to twist it.”
So I waited. And waited. And than some more. In one moment I was thinking what I want to eat and in next "Give me Arcana Rising".
No amount ...more
Well, great. As per usual, I waited almost two years for this book and read it in less than five hours. Much like some of the Arcana *cough* Richter *cough* this book takes no prisoners, instead going straight for the kill. At the end, I was as stunned as if I had been hit with one of Joules’s bolts, feeling as unlucky as someone touched by Zara… ok, ok. I’ll stop now.
Let me first start by saying that I am amazed by how far this series has come. Book one, frankly, wasn’t great. But there was th ...more
