In a world teetering on the edge . . . When Evie receives life-changing—and possibly game-changing—news, she has trouble believing it. Why doesn’t she feel any different? Is it possible someone she trusts might be lying?

With enemies at every turn . . . Tensions seethe inside the castle of lost time as Evie starts to doubt her own sanity. Answers can be found outside their stronghold, but will Death help her find them—or prevent her from learning the truth about her future and Jack’s possible survival?

Darkness beckons. A mysterious, sinister power begins to affect the Arcana in its path. Forced out into the wasteland alone, Evie must depend on unexpected allies. But as a battle with Richter looms, can her new alliance defeat the Dark Calling before hell reigns on earth?

Readers note: this review contains spoilers to those who have not read any of the previous instalments to The Arcana Chronicles series.

The Dark Calling with enthral you to the very end and leave you wanting so much more.

The previous book, Arcana Rising, left us on a shocking cliffhanger but they don't stop there. The Dark Calling is filled with dark twists and turns, ups and downs. Although this instalment lacked the chaotic war zone the other books were full of, it wasn't any less interesting. 

Evie's life is shaken. Bonds of trust are broken. Relationships are cracked. Evie finds herself fleeing for her life after the deepest betrayal sends her running from the only luxury she had post-flash. And Jack is back and just as badass, although we still don't know what Jack is but I suspect that all will be revealed very soon and let me tell you, I'm dying to know everything.

Jack and Aric's unconventional friendship got reunited, we got to explore other arcana and understand more of the game. The end is coming. It was building up and it sent my mind in to overdrive. Where's Matthew? Will the gods make an appearance? And most of all, who will win the endgame?

If you know me then you will know the extent of my love (borderline obsession, maybe?) for The Arcana Chronicles. My paperbacks are well worn and many, many hours have been spent listening to the audio books. I would highly recommend The Arcana Chronicles audiobooks if you haven't already listened to them. Not only is Kresley Cole awesome but Emma Galvin, the narrator, is amazing and adds so much more personality to the stories.
