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?
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?
Game set match
I had to wait a little longer for the audiobook on this one, but it was well worth it.
In the Dark Calling, the un-activated Card is revealed, and I was honestly surprised who it was. I thought it was going to be Jack. Nope. Evie is given the shock of a lifetime, and when she thinks she is secure in her place with Death everything turns upside down, and she is forced to flee into the ash.
At first, I thought Evie was acting like a “B” because she wasn’t getting her way. It turns out her thoughts and feelings were very much founded. I veered more towards Team Jack in this book where all other books I didn’t like either Death or Jack. Jack stepped up in this one. However, I still don’t understand why she can’t have both? Oh right because this is YA. LOL
The battle is set, and the lines are drawn, it is a matter of who will be the ultimate victor in this game of the gods.
I am giving The Dark Calling 5 boundless Stars; it is another perfect addition to this fantastic series. That I honestly want to see brought to the big or small screen.
