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…
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The fate of the world hinges on a magical teenage girl in this young adult thriller, which will appeal to fans of TV's The Walking Dead. After Evie Greene’s dreams of a deadly global cataclysm come true, she and a handsome high school rebel are thrust into the ultimate struggle against evil. Full of action, humour and romance, Poison Princess is a spellbinding kick-off to paranormal fiction author Kresley Cole’s Arcana Chronicles series.
In Louisiana, there s every kind of crazy. There s the crazy of a grandmother locked up in the madhouse. There s the crazy of the seething Cajun boy, Jackson, with bandaged knuckles, a drinking problem, and nightmares. And there s the crazy of 16-year-old Evie, who sees hallucinations that have bloody and all-too-real effects in the real world. In the days before the Flash, a disaster that decimates the planet, Evie is mostly concerned with dodging her boyfriend s plans for her virginity and surviving the last two years of high school. Her visions of writhing vines and a savagely murderous red witch are just something she has to deal with. After the Flash, Evie faces a whole new reality: she s not crazy. The hallucinations were true. Adult romance author Cole moves past apocalypse into pure horror as she launches her first series for teens: bracketing Evie s narrative of self-discovery is her chilling encounter with a serial killer who keeps girls and bodies in the basement. For fans of Freddie and Jason, Cole s tarot-themed supernatural thriller will hold a similarly lurid fascination. Ages 14 up.
