Waiting on Wednesday: Dead of Winter

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where she spotlights upcoming releases.

This week I am waiting on...

Dead of Winter
(The Arcana Chronicles #3)
By:  Kresley Cole
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Release Date: January 6, 2015

I think I was quite heart-broken when I heard that Dead of Winter wasn't going to be released until early 2015.  Ugh!

The first two books in The Arcana Chronicles were so engrossing.  These were different...the characters of the tarot cards come to life in a post-apocalyptic world.

I've come to love Evie, our heroine...she's becoming stronger and more of a force to be reckoned with as the story evolves and she realizes her powers.  But she really had no choice.  Jackson toughened her up as their feelings for each other deepened and 'Ol' Jack' showed his vulnerabilities where she was concerned. And then in the second book, we got to know DEATH!  Wow!  More please!

Endless Knight ended on a bit of a cliffhanger with Jackson in a whole lot of trouble and Death determined to make Evie his...and Evie trying to save Jack while torn up about her new found feelings for Death.

I have a feeling that this third installment, as much as it pains me to admit with the extra lengthy time between releases, will be well worth the wait!

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.

Heartbreaking decisions
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.

Uncertain victory
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?


  1. YES!!! SOOOOOOOO cannot wait to read this one! Upset with the cover change to be honest, but regardless I need this one like months ago!

    Here's my WoW
