In preparation of the fourth Arcana Cronicles installment, I decided to read the previous ones. And now I did it, I realized I never published my thoughts on this one. Strange because this one ends with a massive cliffhanger. I won’t spoil it for you, but if you haven’t read it yet, wait until the 4th book is out so you can continue in peace. Which is August 15 (4 days from now).
What can I say, this installment is tense, we learn a lot about the Lovers card and a new Arcana comes into play.
I grew to like Evie (a.k.a. The Poison Princess) – she was a bit ‘stupid’ in the beginning, what with the naive thinking and getting angry at all the wrong things. But she’s 16 when all hell breaks loose, so I understand that it’s not easy to grow into seriousness and mature in a short space of time. But she managed it and it becomes apparent in this book.
I can’t wait to see if she’ll manage to stop the game and keep all of her newfound friends alive. I certainly hope so.
I’m not so happy about her being in love with two guys. Actually, that doesn’t bother me exactly, what bothers me that she has to choose. Why not keep them both?! 😉 She loves them both.
And, to finish this, I do hope Jack turns out to be Arcana as well, but so far nothing. There is only one card inactivated and I still hope it will be him – but chances are slim…
