Over on her Facebook page, there is a Kresley Cole video in which she talks about the inspiration behind her upcoming YA series, The Arcana Chronicles. Stepping away from the immensely popular IAD series, it features 16 year old heroine Evie Greene facing a whole lot of trouble.
It does sound fun…and different. Not a were or vamp in sight (at least I don’t think so, anyways).

Winner to be chosen at random. Giveaway will close Sunday night at Midnight (my time). Good luck!

As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers.
