Waiting on Wednesday (#80): Dead of Winter by Kresley Cole


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:


Dead of Winter by Kresley Cole
Book Three of the Arcana Chronicles
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers
Publication Date: January 6, 2015

Summary (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?



Ahhh, I can't wait to read this final novel! ARIC! Read my review of Poison Princess, or of Endless Knight, if you're interested!

    1. YAY! I hope you love it when you read it, Jessica! And seriously - I dislike the new covers. I have original hardcover editions for books one and two, and now book three won't match! D:

    1. Ha! You do! :D :D :D :D Thank you, Rachel!

      (Also, my review of the first book was written SO LONG AGO. It's uber short and I dislike it very much. I'm not sure it will convince anyone! Try book two's review, it's more recent and snazzy, heh).

    1. Yes yes yes yes! This is her YA series, but she also has many adult books. It IS a trilogy! Dead of Winter is the final book. Binge-read, Cyn!
