Chapter Reveal + Giveaway: Dead of Winter by Kresley Cole

DEAD OF WINTER BANNER

When people ask me what is my most anticipated book of 2015, Dead of Winter comes to mind instantaneously. I was aching terribly for it when I finished book 2, Endless Knight, thinking of sneaky ways to make Kresley Cole my BFF so she can spill every secret that awaits! Lucky for me, and for all of you in the same predicament, we are nearing the release of this third book in the epic series, The Arcana Chronicles. A series that has you falling in love with one guy as you clutch your heart with equal parts dread and thrilling anticipation, only to have you ditch him the delicious moment you meet a dangerous adversary that challenges for the heroine’s heart. Someone that is utterly entrancing and intriguing—Death.

This series is one of my very favorites, for so many reasons. It’s a world that’s vividly developed, a story masterfully penned by Kresley Cole. It’s adventure. It’s romance. It’s suspense. It’s a dystopian story with a supernatural twist. It’s our favorite Cajun boy against the intensely alluring Death and it’s the reason why I can’t wait to devour this incredible story. And thus, I’m honored to have one of the five exclusive excerpts leading up to the release on January 6th.

Read my review of the first two books in the series ★
★ Order Books: Poison Princess | Endless Knight | Dead of Winter

Synopsis

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?

    These books mean so much to me that words cannot exactly explain how I feel for them! Yeah , I know to some people they are just books but TO ME they hold a very special place in my heart. 🙂

    The Arcana Chronicles aren’t just books you read and you’re done with it. No, they’re like this big puzzle filled with clues and when you finish any of the books you cant help but go back and try to puzzle the whole thing together. Its so much fun reading reviews on Goodreads, or anywhere, about these books and what theories people have come up with!

    20/20 stars! yes I said it! 😉

    DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THESE BOOKS! ITS A MUST! Cant wait for Dead of Winter!

    Team Jack all the way!! January seems so far away…I wish this book could be twice as long b/c there is never enough Jack! 🙂 Plus, I’m intrigued by what Jack has grown into while he’s been away from Evie! It looks like the tough bad boy has turned into a tough capable man!!!

    I love this series – the characters, the world, and the whole Arcana premise! It’s unique, complex, and so different from anything else I’ve read in a long time! I so hated the cliffie from Endless Knight! Waiting is NOT a virtue of mine!

    I also feel the need to say how sad I am that it’s ending, I’m always sad when one of my favorite series ends, no matter how much I need closure, there’s always that small part that wants my favorite characters to keep going for another 5-10 books 😉

    Fantastic Giveaway, thanks for hosting!
