Synopsis - Divider

#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 Derveaux.

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 - Divider

This fantastic book is very much praise-worthy! Everything I’ve been looking for a book was here.

All this time, I’ve been dreaming or day-dreaming for a character that looks and has the same kind of Evie’s adventure and life. I guess I’ve found my book – my book friend. How I wished I’d read this long before when my sister had grabbed this on a bookstore’s sale.

The plot is very amazing. The way how Evie’s life would go before and after the Flash will surely make you go on an emotional coaster ride. You will be scared, angered, mystified and even feel the romantic connection between Evie and Jack.

The plot started with an epilogue where a guy was the one speaking here then it goes back on the day before the Flash and from here, it was told from Evie’s view.

I loved how the author wrote this novel. Poison Princess is very engrossing, absorbing and addictive. I was very compelled on reading this book until I reached the end part. Imagine me starting reading this by 7 pm and ending up still awake at 6 am, it’s that good!

The cover is also pretty but I don’t choose to read this because of the cover but because of the synopsis that looks promising of a good story and that’s what I’d read – a very unputdownable book!

The characters are very cool! You’ll get excited to know them all especially those tarot characters as you read each chapter!

Overall, I am in love with the book and the series. This is much recommended!

  1. I’d never thought I’ll love it since it was my sister who just picked it out somewhere on a bookstore I’d brought her in. 😀


  2. The synopsis is very interesting. I’m envying you so much for finding such a great read. Now, I need to find a way to get my hands on this book.
