Waiting on Wednesday: Arcana Rising by Kresley Cole

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

This week, what's really got my pages in a twist is...

Arcana Rising
(Arcana Chronicles #4)
Publication Date: August 15, 2016
Paperback, Valkyrie Press
Genres: YA, Dystopian, Paranormal

Losses mount and deadly new threats converge in this fourth action-packed tale of the Arcana Chronicles by #1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole.

When the battle is done . . .
The Emperor unleashed hell and annihilated an army, jeopardizing the future of mankind--but Circe struck back. The epic clash between them devastates the Arcana world and nearly kills Evie, separating her from her allies.

And all hope is lost . . .
With Aric missing and no sign that Jack and Selena escaped Richter's reach, Evie turns more and more to the darkness lurking inside her. Two Arcana emerge as game changers: one who could be her salvation, the other her worst nightmare.

Vengeance becomes everything.
To take on Richter, Evie must reunite with Death and mend their broken bond. But as she learns more about her role in the future--and her chilling past--will she become a monster like the Emperor? Or can Evie and her allies rise up from Richter's ashes, stronger than ever before?

My Thoughts

This book. Ugh. I didn’t even think we were going to get a fourth Arcana book this year considering there was no news for months upon months, even when it was well into 2016. Additionally, book three, Dead of Winter, released in winter of 2015, but this one isn’t getting released until August of 2016.

So. Much. Frustration.

After where the third one left off, I’m past ready to pick this book up. #TeamJackFTW

What book are you waiting for this Wednesday?


  1. I really need to read a book by this author as she is going to be at the NOLA StoryCon in September that I'm going to get to meet her. Great pick!
    Check out my WOW

    1. Soooo lucky! I would love to meet Kresley! XD

  2. Ha! Team Arin. ;) I saw this - and the novella - up on Amazon! It's interesting to see that Simon & Schuster are no longer publishing the rest of the series. I'm looking forward to reading this one. I think. I HATE love triangles, but I need to know. :D I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

    Have a fabulous week, Rachelle. :)

    Check out my WoW post!

    1. No! Not Team Arin! lol.

      Yeah, I thought that the publisher thing was odd too, especially with the movie/TV deal that was announced earlier. Oh well...


I LOVE your comments! And I do read all of them so keep at it! Thanks for visiting!
