Review: Dead of Winter by Kresley Cole

Author: Kresley Cole
Publication Date: 01/06/2015
Audience: YA, NA
Genre: Fantasy, Post Apocalyptic, Romance

Dead of Winter is the third book in the Arcana Series.  If you haven't started this series yet I highly recommend you check out Poison Princess first!

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 perilous post-apocalyptic wasteland to meet up with her allies and launch an attack on the Lovers. Such formidable enemies require a battle plan, and the only way to kill them 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...?
Summary from Goodreads


Wow. So many feels were produced by this book.  I really need to know how long Kresley Cole plans on dragging this series out.  Not that I don't enjoy it, I'm just not sure I can survive many more books like Dead of Winter.

Dead of Winter sticks true to the rest of the Arcana Chronicles.  We pick up basically where we left off at the end of Endless Knight.  While there is plenty of action and suspense the thing that had me on the edge of my seat the most was the love triangle between Evie, Jack, and Aric.  I can't handle it.  I am completely a Team Jack girl ya'll, and the fact that Evie was even considering Aric had me mentally screaming!

One thing is for sure, the way Dead of Winter ended solidified the fact that I won't be rereading it until I have the next book in my hands.  I have never been so angry before.. well, there was the Great Allegiant Reading of 2014, but nothing can compare to that...
