Poison Princess by Kresley Cole

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, killing everyone she loves, 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 trust 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 teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it's not always clear who is on which side...

In Poison Princess, New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole introduces a dark and intriguing world, full of unspeakable danger and irresistible romance.

Loriidae Maybe. I am in the minority, but I didn't like Immortals after Dark.

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments I only read the prologue last night. It was scary. And I think we have to wait for the end of the book to see what happens?
Did you start?

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments I’m rereading and IMO the beginning was a bit slow...

I'm on chapter 3, I won't have much time for reading today but I'll read more on Sunday.

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments Finished chapter 6

That nightmare was very scary. I have so many questions.
Empress? Death with the armer? The sugar cane trying to protect her? End what? The hunchback boy? Does Jackson knows something too? What did her grandmother knew? Where is she?
....
I hope I'll get my answers soon.

I agree it was scary but what worries me the most is what she said: “What I believe happened might not be what actually took place.”

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments There was a lot of character build up for her boyfriend and best friend. I'm surprised they died! Is it possible that they are alive?


message 17: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments It could be but I don’t think so. They would have gone to her house to check on her or she would have seen them when she went raiding with her mom. Which leads me to wonder what was the point of all those chapters before the flash...


message 18: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments Then again, Evie has already established herself as an unreliable narrator so... *shrugs* could be they are somewhere out there. It does make me wonder what part of what she’s saying is not true.

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments Huh, this is darker than I remember.

I don't think she's too off the mark about what happened.
I'm on chapter 20

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments Oh well I was wrong but I had the right idea it was just a bit off.


message 33: by ShoSho , Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments I'm done. I really liked it. If it wasn't for a the pointless first few chapters and a couple of others things, I would have given it 5 stars.


message 34: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments I agree, I’m raising my initial 3 stars to 4. Those first few chapters were so pointless. I would’ve preferred to get more of her life right after the Flash. How long did she wait before going to look for her friends? Stuff like that instead of the minutiae of her week before the Flash.

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments I wish the ending wasn't so abrupt.
And yes I would loved more details about after the Flash.

Questions to ponder:
Does she have to kill ALL the cards now? why? Why not just the bad ones? Are there more than one set of cards alive? Or death is only alive because he has killed all the ones from his original set? What happened to the red witch from his original set?
Selena, what does she know? How does she know it?
Is the grandmother alive?

BTW what happens to the girls she rescued? Are they going to protect them or just leave them on their own?


message 36: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments I don’t know! LOL Also, why did Matthew warn her about the rain? What’s so terrible about it?

Do you want to wait till next month to read the next one? I mean it’s just us so... :D


message 37: by Gisela, Moderator (new) - rated it 4 stars

Gisela (chicadorlando) | 4022 comments I hope the grandmother is alive. Maybe she’ll give us answers! At first I thought Jackson was one of the Arcana, but Matthew said he’s not. He’s something though, there were several veiled references to his strength and he seems to have a strong sixth sense. Maybe his bloodline is like Evie’s grandmother, except that his father thought that Jack’s brother inherited special abilities and doted on him not realizing Jack was the gifted one?
