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….
Poison Princess by Kresley Cole is the first book that I have had the pleasure of reading and I can say with 100 percent certainty that it will not be the last. The storyline of Poison Princess was incredibly fresh and I loved every single thing about it especially the role that the Tarot cards play throughout the book. Each of the characters had their own strong points and each had a significant role in the plot. I couldn’t get enough of Jack and Evie because despite their differences the attraction between the two was so strong. Poison Princess is without a doubt one of the best books that I have read in 2012 and I am already eager to read the next book in this wonderful new series.
