"The Scargill Cove Casefiles" was an amusing little treat for those who are already familiar with the Arcane Society and Fallon Jones. I can understand why those not familiar with the series gave it bad reviews, because it does really work best for those who already know the story line and characters. For those of us already addicted to the Arcane Society, it was a nice bonus. For anyone else, this is not the best introduction to Krentz's excellent work. Start with one of the earliest full-length books to capture the flavor of this exceptionally good series.
A freebie for avid Arcane Society fans who might have missed this in it's previous incarnation, this is the first time published but the content is not new. The Scargill Cove Case Files is a collection of Twitter tweets for Fallon Jones - yes, Fallon Jones (Arcane Society) has his own Twitter account (lest you think me an extreme fan girl I stumbled on this during the marketing campaign for In Too Deep: Book One of the Looking Glass Trilogy (An Arcane Society Novel) there is another set of Tweets to go with that book).
Scargill Cove Case Files - not surprisingly - read like a bunch of tweets, the result was choppy and consequently it was not very engaging - so personally, I thought that this was more on the ok side. For those readers who aren't already familiar with Krentz' psychic paranormal romances looking to give the Arcane Society series a try, there really isn't enough here to get a feel for the series written by Krentz and her two alter egos (Krentz writes Arcane Society present, but also writes as Arcane society Past as Amanda Quick, and Arcane Society Future as Jayne Ann Castle.) But since these tweets are set right before Running Hot (Arcane Society, Book 5), fans with a good memory might get a kick out of the references to events from that book and the price was right.
Here's how it breaks down. I’ll give it both as page turns on the cloud reader with the middle (default) font size and the margins spread as far apart as they’ll go far right setting), which may vary by the size of your type and what reader you’re using and as location “loc” which will remain constant. It has an estimated 44 pages. First there's the cover (loc 1) and the title page (loc 2). The Table of Contents is next (loc 4) but we’re not at the beginning of the story yet. Next is a list of other titles, for four “pages” (locs 8,12,17,21). Next comes two copyright pages, for this story and the two teasers (locs 25 & 37). On the next page the story begins (loc 48 ). The following page it goes to double spaced (loc 57). There are 14 pages of double spaced text and a brief page that’s single spaced. The next page is blank (loc 268). There’s a one page epilogue (loc 269). Then the advertisements for two other books begin and we go back to single spaced lines. There’s an introductory page for “In Too Deep” with just a banner at the top (loc 279). The preview starts on the next page (loc 282). There are 11 pages (ends at loc 512). Following this there’s another banner page showing that we’re starting “Copper Beach” (loc 534). That story begins on the next page (loc 537).Read more ›

I would recommend this to anyone who reads this author. I liked it because I know the characters. I don't think it would make much sense to anyone who has not read her books.Published 1 month ago by Benny Madrigal
Love everything Jayne Krentz writes especially her Arcane series. This book was not as good as some that I have read, a little short but it is just a novella. Read morePublished 2 months ago by freckles
