#1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole introduces The Arcana Chronicles, post-apocalyptic tales filled with riveting action, the dark mysticism of Tarot cards, and breathtaking romance.
She could save the world—or destroy it.
Sixteen year old Evangeline “Evie” Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future—and they’re still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.
But she can’t do either alone.
With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can’t totally depend on Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?
Who can Evie trust?
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. A group of twenty-two teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side….
This book had be reading til 3 am!!! That's not the record but that's pretty close :O
Poison Princess is a very promising book with the concept of the Arcanas. I've never really studied or known much about Tarot cards so this one was really interesting for me.
Anyways, I feel Evie is this spoiled brat, but I think she gets better throughout the book. And Jack Deveaux, the love interest. Ugh.. I think he only wants Evie for sex at first ('cause the woman population went down dramatically), and he even admits it (that bastard)! He may seem like a dick with his mood swings and all that but I think he has his heart in a good place and really wants the best for Evie.
I also like the Arcanas have super powers! I don't know why, but I love books with people who have super powers!! It's just so cool :)
The only reason I'm giving this a four stars is because of Jack. He is just too rude of a character. And everyone is like, swooning (which I must admit I did) for him. I just don't get him as a character all right?
