Sixteen-year-old Evie Greene thought her horrific apocalyptic hallucinations were a sign that she was slowly losing her mind. But when her visions come true, decimating the world around her and killing everyone she loves, Evie is forced to accept that she was seeing the future.
Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she turns to wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate, the gorgeous and dangerous Jackson Deveaux for help. As Jackson and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have got the same call and discover that Evie is not the only one with special powers. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and as the battle between good and evil intensifies, it is not always clear who is on which side…
Kresley Cole brilliantly balances a disturbing post-apocalyptic world that with authentic and charismatic characters. The story opens with a highly compelling and intriguing scene of Evangeline (Evie) asking for shelter at Arthur's home (who is a complete mystery). This scene is actually the present of the story and from this moment, Evie starts telling her story to Arthur through long flashbacks that don't disrupt the flow of the story. I love how smart Kresley Cole was with this detail and she definitely kept me turning pages at record speed. Then, once I got back to the present from the flashback, it was just to make everything even better! The story is built in such a wonderful way that I was felt enthralled during the whole read! Long flashbacks and mysterious present scenes were definitely well played!
Poison Princess' post-apocalyptic world is definitely something to fear of! The world has been consume by flames, and soon after, the little surviving population is no more than a bunch of cruel men and zombie-like creatures. I also loved the particular and unique concept about the Major Arcana tarot cards being actual characters in the story. Miss Cole has created a whole world with ancient wars and powerful characters that will haunt readers after long they turned the last page. In addition, I love the sensual creativity that Kresley Cole delivers in her writing. Evie and Jack's electrifying connection is just to die for! Oh! and did I mention that Jack is the ultimate post-apocalyptic badass hero? =9 Wait no more and go discover this delicious character by yourself!
Brutally amazing and and highly provocative, Poison Princess is a dark tale of love and survival in a devastated world that will seduce and haunt readers even long after you turned the last page. The merciless and terrific cliffhanger alone will leave readers speechless, hurting, and yet craving for more! Oh yes, more!
