YA Review: Dead of Winter (The Arcana Chronicles)

I've finished "Dead of Winter" the 3rd book in her Arcana Chronicles Series by Kresley Cole.

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 perilous post-apocalyptic wasteland to meet up with her allies and launch an attack on The Lovers. Such formidable enemies require a battle plan, and the only way to kill them 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?

My Review:

I really enjoyed the jealous and one upmanship between Jack and Aric because it was funny and hilarious.  I was eagerly waiting for their next sniping scenes.

I wish there were more scenes between Evie and Jack because she needs to tell him what she is feeling and solve the conflict between them.

That ending I hated my favorite Cajun can't be dead!  I won't believe it!
