I seriously thought this was going to be another trilogy and thus the end of the Arcana Chronicles. Despite the excruciating cliff-hanger ending I am so relieved that this series will continue on for at least another book (or hopefully more). I get utterly lost in this world that Ms. Cole has created. She is hands down my favorite author and she did not disappoint with this one. I will be holding my breath until the next book which undoubtedly will not come soon enough. Curse you Ms. Cole and your brilliant writing.

What made the experience of listening to Dead of Winter the most enjoyable?
Emma Galvin's performance, once again, made this a fantastic listen. I read the ebook while I listened to the audiobook and Emma Galvin's narration made the book even better. I am a big fan of Kresley Cole, but I found that (in Dead of Winter at least) she went a little overboard with her use of exclamation points! It gets distracting to read like that after a while! See what I mean!?! Emma Galvin softened those exclamations and put such life into the story.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I am firmly Team Death. He doesn't treat Evie like a fragile damsel in distress and, unlike Jack, Death is always honest with her.
Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, and she is one of my favourite narrators. I found Poison Princess (book one in the Arcana Chronicles) by searching for books narrated by Emma Galvin. Her voices for the main characters are consistent and distinct. If she could just differentiate the voices for the other characters a little bit more, this would have been a five-star performance.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The ending. Kresley Cole, you are killing me with these cliffhangers! I hate it when books end in such a harrowing cliffhanger, but it also brings a little hope for those who were wishing for a different outcome. With fifteen minutes left in the audiobook, I wasn't sure if I was happy about how the book was ending, but the conclusion was such a dramatic twist and it wiped out my theory as to where the next book is headed.

Would you consider the audio edition of Dead of Winter: Arcana Chronicles, Book 3 to be better than the print version?
I loved both. I love reading my books and then listening to its audiobook. This is is the 3rd book in the series and I must say the story is getting better and better. Emma Galvin does a brilliant job narrating this story.
What other book might you compare Dead of Winter: Arcana Chronicles, Book 3 to, and why?
This book is fantasy (mythology and tarot cards) Richelle Mead has a series called The Age of X with similar but I swear her series doesn't compare to this one or this book. I loved Dead of Winter. I can't wait to read the next instalment and more of Aric.
What about Emma Galvin’s performance did you like?
Oh I love Emma Galvin. She is really good. Poison Princess and Endless Knight were amazing too.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
More books. Queen of the Terling, Red Queen..The Winner's curse need to be in your list too.

Great read. Initially found the central concept of tarot representing kids a bit odd but series gets better and better.
The characters sounds pretty much the same. The only way I knew who spoke was either one said "cieva" or "me". Be prepared for this is YA novel. It has countless bouncing thoughts about both men, unable to make a decision.
Story has lots of action but that cliffhanger is just too sudden.
