Don t let the rating fool you I liked this one It was just too short, and written as a case file from Fallon Jones point of view , and I didn t really know how to rate it, so I took the middle ground.It was great revisiting Fallon again, since I have a soft spot for this chaos theorist And for Scargill Cove where the man s hearth is.The narrative style offered a special glimpse into the man s psyche and thinking patterns he was a hoot in this one , we re presented with a small investigation in Scargill Cove during which we learn there are no coincidences, and in the end witness the first meeting of Fallon and Isabella from his point of view.Now I m itching to re read In Too Deep and get to see the two of them interact all over again. Free 06 16 15 Arcane Society short story I think even the Scholastic books I read as a kid were longer than this book Glad it was a freebie Extremely quick Arcane Society Scargill Cove read. This is a freebie.It s a short read about a case that Fallon Jones is working on This won t really be a good one to read unless you ve read a couple books in the series It fits between 41 pages Not worth the bother reading this. I remember loving this series when it first came out I don t know if its the short story or the report style but it didn t have the magic previous stories in the series have had for me It s still a good story it just didn t blow me away. It wasn t until I skimmed some of the other reviews that I realized this short story was supposedly a collection of Twitter messages, which really makes no sense considering how secretive JJ s case files are supposed to be Prior to this realization, I had been trying to figure out if this story was written as a jumbled, scattered, and rough stream of conscience in Fallon Jones s POV, or if it was maybe a case file journal he was keeping.It certainly didn t strike me as being a collection of Tweets not that I would know considering I don t even own a Twitter account.The story itself is a nice promotional piece to introduce Fallon Jones, and maybe insert someconspiracy theories into the already complicated web that has been building throughout the Arcane Society series It was just another murder mystery connected to a bigger plot, so I assume we ll maybe see , or get some references to this short story in the following Arcane book, In Too Deep. I ve read all the other Arcane books, but I just don t get the point of this I also don t get why the crystals were hidden in a book that was displayed as for sale at a book store What if a customer opened it up Chilling Paranormal Suspense In A Small California Town By The New York Times Bestselling Author Of The Arcane Society Novels As The Director At Jones Jones, A Psychical Investigation Agency, Fallon Jones Solves Crimes Of A Different Nature Jones S Latest Case Involves A Body Found In The Basement Vault Of A Local Bookstore, And Scratchings On The Inside Of The Door That Seem To Be A Coded Message, In This Novella By Jayne Ann Krentz, New York Times Bestselling Author Of In Too Deep And The Arcane Society Novels Clever Short Story of the Arcane SocietyNice little interstitial featuring Fallon Jones Cool to learn a bitabout Fallon in his own words Not really for first time readers of The Arcane Society, but very interesting if you re in the know.
