“With threats lurking around every corner, Evie is forced to trust her newfound alliance. Together they must fight not only other Arcana, but also Bagmen zombies, post-apocalyptic storms, and cannibals.”
This was a good continuation of this series. I continue to enjoy this YA post-apocalyptic series where certain teens end up representing tarot cards and end up developing special powers to represent these tarot cards in a game to save or end the world.
I listened to this on audiobook and the audiobook is well done. I think the narrator does a good job with different voices and conveys emotion well.
This book focused less on what is happening in this post-apocalyptic world and more on the interactions between Death and Evie. We also meet a number of other Arcana which was interesting.
I am a bit worried that this series is turning into your typical YA love triangle type of deal. I am not a huge fan of love triangles. I plan on reading the third book and seeing where the story goes, but I am a bit leery because of where this book ends up.
Overall this was a good continuation of the Arcana Chronicles series. I enjoyed some of the new Arcana we meet and enjoyed the action scenes. I was a bit disappointed by the introduction of a love triangle of sorts. However, I am intrigued enough by the tarot card theme that I will read the third book and then decide whether or not to continue the series.
