Summary: Thrilling and epic, the Arcana Chronicles mix magic, romance, and a ruinous, deadly battle for survival in a postapocalyptic world that reminds me of Hunger Games in some ways, but has a unique and darkly horrible ambiance all of its own.
Kresley Cole’s Arcana Chronicles is the first series in a long time that’s hooked my attention. In fact, after racing through the available books, months later I couldn’t get it out of my head.
So I was thrilled when new book came out – I didn’t realize immediately that Day Zero was actually bonus content: the backstory of the characters during the apocalyptic event that begins the new games. But it was a smart way to boost awareness and get people ready for Book 5 of the series (Day Zero is being called the 4th book; Arcana Rising the 5th book.)
I haven’t finished reading yet but I’ll post a full review in a day or two!
