Evie and Death who'd have thunk it! I'm all for Death, though I love Jack. So I was as torn as Evie when reading the books. Though i'm pretty sure how the author is going to end this series. Phawww, those who love this series are in for a treat an half if you haven't read it yet! For those of you who haven't EVEN read the first book, they are very addictive. It's an original story with twists and turns, and they are fast reads. I read one and end up reading them all, one after the other!
Plot for Arcana Rising, more Arcana are rising out of the shadows after The Flash. New alliances, friendships and deaths make this book one of the best of this series (though my favourite is Endless Knight). It's a harsh/wild ride with steam! A lof of steam - that can melt ice! Especially towards the end. If you're team Death, you'll love this book.
Spoiler: Though i'll try not to spoil it too much!
We see Evie get split from Death in an horrific attempt to escape another Arcana; and she's get captured and tormented by that said Arcana. When she gets rescued, that's when things get hot. Evie is fighting through the loss of Jack and her feelings for Death - still. If by this point, you've rolled you eyes, keep reading.
Matthew (The Fool) has gone on silent running, but something is going on. He's still playing, just hiding in the shadows of her mind! Manipulating is the right word I'm looking for, Her and the game.
When Death gives Evie her gift, the gift he told her he had and safe guarded at the end of Dead of Winter, she is out cold and needing to regenerate or she'll die. When she comes round, the gifthorse is biting Aric/Death in the arse and trying to explain to Evie she will have to kill him to win the game. In response, Death moves out of the castle, Evie in a way freaks and goes to find him, telling him her Grandma can think what she wants. Evie doesn't want to hurt Aric. By this point of the book, Evie has a strong connection to Aric, she feels married to him - it's all explained in the book, but basically she is remember their past. Also, it's almost as if she feels his pain and loss. She's empathetic.
By the end of book 5, you will want the next one due out early next year, 2017. PRE-ORDER, as these books run out fast!
Completely original, genius story, totally addictive and I was literally on then edge of my seat frantically reading what will happen next. I gotta read this whole series again as I am now suffering from Arcana withdrawal!
The Empress is my favourite character of all time, just adore Evie and I can't get enough of Death the chemistry between these two is scorching. Hilarious, believable and such loveable characters so well written. Can't recommend enough, you have to read this series.
You will have to read all the others in this series first to understand what is happening but I love it and have read the series 2-3 times!
