Review: Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles #1) by Kresley Cole


Goodreads Summary:

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. 

My Review

Well I said I would reread the first two books in The Arcana Chronicles before reading the third book, and I finally am!! Of course this is way overdue, because I’ve been dying to read book three for months, but when I set my mind to something I gotta follow through! I’m definitely glad I reread it; it was a beautiful refresher, and renewed my love for this series!

Evie is your typical popular blondie, she’s a cheerleader dating the captain of the football team and has the world at her disposal. That is until “The Flash” happens, and suddenly the world is a barren wasteland devoid of most life and crawling with zombielike creatures known as Bagmen. On top of that, Evie’s graphic visions grow worse by the day, and she begins to develop more powers that she can’t explain all the while the voices in her head grow louder. Her only ally in the apocalypse is the gorgeous yet frustrating bad boy Cajun, Jackson Deveaux.

Poison Princess is bound to be unlike any book you’ve ever read before!!! It easily finds a way to be an apocalyptic-supernatural-horror-romance all in one! Kresley Cole really has developed a story of such unique proportions that you will never know what to expect when reading this story! Evie is a badass heroin who is full of surprises, and Jackson is bound to be your next heartthrob. Although, their relationship is super rough throughout the book, behind all the arguing and insults, there are true feelings there that neither can deny. The entire plot is so precarious throughout, there is no easy way of putting this book down to take a break from the content. New information is constantly revealed that will leave you reeling and ready for more! I’m currently rereading book two (my favorite of the two) and can’t wait to finally experience Dead of Winter (#3).  If you haven’t picked up this series yet, I seriously recommend you start!!

Buy Poison Princess on Amazon here or anywhere else that sells books!
