Arcana means secrets, and these Arcana Chronicles short stories from #1 New York Times bestseller Kresley Cole are filled with them. Experience firsthand the beginning of the end and behold the apocalypse through the eyes of characters you only thought you knew.
Ashes to ashes . . .Evie Greene's story of the Flash is just one of many. All over the world, those connected in some way to the lethal Arcana game--like Death, Jack, and Fortune--must first survive a horrifying night of blood and screams.
We all fall down.Some will have to grapple with new powers; all will be damned to a hellish new existence of plague, brutality, desolation, and cannibalism. Find out who they lost, why they endure, and what they sacrificed in order to live past Day Zero. . . .
This is a perfect novella if you’re a fan of the Arcana Chronicles. It gives us a look into what each of the major players were doing on Day Zero.
I loved seeing how these characters were before they had to start playing the game. Some of them were not like how they are now. And I liked seeing that shift. Also, Jack’s experience was terrifying. I love Jack, and I can’t imagine going through what he did. But it’s the same for all the characters. They were living their lives, well some of them were, and bam! Everything changes.
Definitely pick this novella up if you want a deeper look into this series and its characters.
