The Dark Calling by Kresley Cole

New intrigues, adventures, and stunning revelations fill the penultimate installment of #1 New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole’s electrifying Arcana Chronicles.

In a world teetering on the edge . . .
When Evie receives life-changing—and possibly game-changing—news, she has trouble believing it. Why doesn’t she feel any different? Is it possible someone she trusts might be lying?

With enemies at every turn . . .
Tensions seethe inside the castle of lost time as Evie starts to doubt her own sanity. Answers can be found outside their stronghold, but will Death help her find them—or prevent her from learning the truth about her future and Jack’s possible survival?

Darkness beckons.
A mysterious, sinister power begins to affect the Arcana in its path. Forced out into the wasteland alone, Evie must depend on unexpected allies. But as a battle with Richter looms, can her new alliance defeat the Dark Calling before hell reigns on earth?

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments When was the last time Evie's version of things was different from Paul's?
Aric said 2 months ago

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments Ch. 2 There must be a reason why Evie remembers things differently than other people. Is someone tampering with her memories? Circe?

I'm starting chapter 5 and I don't like it either. To me it seems that she's going to have problems with Aric and this would give her some excuses to go to Jack! I'm pretty sure Aric will die at the end of the series :(

Is she really pregnant? Can Aric touch the baby without killing it if she is?

I knew Paul would play a big role but I had no idea he would be the inactive card. I was still thinking it's Jack. I still think Jack is something in the game. Maybe a Minor?

I..."

Paul is worse than I thought!

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments Also, I hate that Evie has basically been benched for the duration of the Game...

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments I'm worried about that vision from Matthew! Was it a lie or a possible or a definite future?

Yes she hasn't done much, specially in this book.

I HATE THIS! AHHH! And yes it’s cheating! She accepted the marriage and accepted Aric’s proposal to start over.

Yea that's be great!


message 34: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments Is it just the Empress and Death’s child or any child between Major Arcana that’s forbidden?


message 35: by ShoSho , Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments I'm thinking these 2 only. Death and life...


message 36: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments I’m guessing that the child is necessary to end the game and Matthew wants it to be born.


message 37: by ShoSho , Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments that's what I'm guessing too.

message 41: by ShoSho , Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments I think she needed the breakdown. She told him everything she was thinking about. The unloading was an essential thing.

message 43: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments It did and I agree, that was one of the best scenes in the series. It shows how much they have both changed and grown as characters. Too bad Evie is still so weak in comparison...

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments I'm done. I think I loved it? I don't know!!! let me think...

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments I knew there was a reason that I didn't like love triangles. No wonder really ...


message 46: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments I liked the ending but not that Jackson made the choice for her. And even then she is still thinking only of herself. She’s not thinking about how they feel and what they want. I also hated that Evie holds Aric to a different standard than Jackson or even the other Arcana. I was so glad when Jackson called her on it. She was being hypocritical when she expected people to get over what she did in past games but couldn’t get over what Aric did. Both Jackson and Aric saved this book. I wanted them to dump Evie in her tower with Circe and Lark for company, then go together on adventures... I still think one of the three will die. I’m hoping for Evie, then Aric and Jackson can raise the kid on their own without Evie’s drama.

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments Haahaa I love your solution.
when someone can't decide for themselves then it'll be done for them. At first I didn't like it but it was the best solution for the moment.
I'm sure there will be more drama about who she ends up with, I just hope that time it will be her choice.
This is AF, why can't she have both? It's obvious she wants to.


message 48: by ShoSho , Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments There's nothing about the next book anywhere, i hope it doesn't take 2 years to come out.

BTW did you think it was the best book she'd written?


message 49: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments She’s too much of a wimp to suggest it... but like you say they’ll end up making the choice for her, like Jack did. And I agree there will be more relationship drama in the next one.

I hope we don’t have to wait for too long, and no not her best work.

BTW did you notice the parallels between Evie+Aric and Wicked Abyss (Immortals After Dark, #18) by Kresley Cole ?
