Series: The Arcana Chronicles: Poison Princess (1)
Synopsis: 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…
Review: I have been a long time fan of Kresley Cole, her adult IAD series of course. I have read her other adult series but I didn't care for it much. This book, however, I was sure would be amazing. I also didn't care much for this one.
I have to give props for her amazing world building and ideas...she is top notch when it comes to breaking the mold. Her main character is normal and a normal person can relate to her, well, mostly. I like the fact that she makes her characters flawed and she has no problems putting them through hell.
I didn't care for this book because I couldn't get in to it. That may have been my fault, I could have been in a rush, I don't know but with the way the book opened I just wasn't grabbed by it. I hope you will give this book, or her IAD series a shot though, Ms. Cole is an amazing author!
