The story/plot was fabulously original... LOVED THIS BOOK! I love the girl's voice, but it would slip in and out of the southern accent. Otherwise, everything about this story was AMAZING. One of my faves for the year =)
Kresley Cole is a true storyteller. I loved that every character has mystery about them. From start to finish this book had me at the edge of my seat. The narrators did an amazing job.
I LOVED the audio on this book! I haven't read the print version, although I usually do prefer print to audio. This time I loved the audio!!! The two narrators did such a fantastic job, they really brought the story to life, Very well done.
iI did laugh out loud a few times which I very rarely do! there was a bit of romantic angst too =)
If you like Kresley Cole, Do yourself a favour and try this audio book. I found it soooo much more enjoyable than her hunger like no other (immortals after darl) audio books!
I loved this audio book, I think I would love the printed version just as much!
Jack, because he is dark and brooding and you never know what he is really feeling or thinking.
I have not! But I am going to be looking them up, to see what else they've done.
This book was one of the best books I've listened to in a very long time! I did give a sigh of frustration when it it ended, because of the wait for the next book. I want to know what happens next. It gave me butterflies in my stomach through out the whole story. I loved the relationship with the characters. Just amazing!
I absolutely LOVED this book. I actually read it and then decided I wanted to hear it too. It was that good. Girl is considered nuts but is actually seeing the future, tied into tarot cards she is one of the good cards and to save the world must find the other cards (people) and destroy them. It did get a little slow and repetitive at times but it's all building to a huge tie in. Unfortunatley there are going to be sequels to wait impatiently for but if the author continues as strong as this first book it will be well worth it.
Listening to audio books whenever I am not around humans. Which is actually very very often.
intriguing, entangling.. adventure!
My boy Jack Deveaux. I loved his character development, his rage and passion had me constantly awaiting his next response... plus his observative nature and obsession with puzzles is swoon worthy. GUSH
Both readers led me to create characters I felt connected to and understood well, they painted a great picture of the story in my mind.
yes yes yes.
There were many elements to this book (and the next) that I wanted to constantly sink my teeth into. I enjoyed the small amounts of passion between Evie and Jack, i REALLY loved hearing them fight then finally spill their actual feelings and the relief that both of them never really understand one another. I felt magic for the entire duration of this book!
I loved how unique the story was (using the tarot). I loved Evie and Jack and to what extent the characters were fleshed out and given personalities making them seem real. I enjoyed this book more than any of Kresley Cole's other works of fiction (and believe me I'm a huge fan). I'm not sure if it is because she wrote this in the first person (i.e. being told primarily from Evie's point of view) that helped me connect to the storey more and get completely ENGROSSED to the extent that the world faded away around me! She should always write in the first person - she is very good at it!!OR perhaps it is the narrator that made the difference. Don't get me wrong, I like Robert Petkoff (who usually narrates Kresley's books) but, being a woman, I always prefer the voices of the female leads being read by women. It makes them seems more relatable for me. Emma Galvin was the absolute best, BEST, best narrator they could have chosen for this book. Her voice sounds young and realistic for Evie and she is one of my favourite narrators. She always brings a level of realism to the characters she reads and I really hope they DO NOT CHANGE the narrator. She IS Evie!!!!
Evie, even though she has way weird abilities, she still seemed real and her character grows from being scared and weak to being strong and self-possessed. I really liked that.AND Jack...... who would not love Jack..... le sigh. He is hunkalicious! He was a good mix between bad boy and hero and I liked that he got things wrong in his efforts to seduce Evie. It made him seem more real. He also brought a delicious sense of humour. I so loved his Cajun French ascent which was different and fresh!
Emma made Evie come to life for me. I also enjoyed her portrayal of Jack and the other characters. She is simply phenomenal.
Hmmm, not sure. Tag lines aren't really my thing.
Well worth the credit. One of the best books of 2012 (if not the best) in my opinion.
I am in love with pararomance and am always trying to find new series with a great story and sizzling hot spots!
It is right up there with every Kresley book I have read/listened to.
This book is so different, so unique. The complex situations and world she created is so amazing.
The ending was great....
I did not, more like.... HOLY CRAP!
A perfect blend of Fantasy, Romance and Action. Poison Princess is an amazing start to what will likely end up an amazing series. I was hooked from the very beginning and by the end of the book I was craving for more. Narrator Emma Galvin did an excellent job as Evie, as well as giving voices to all the other characters. I will certainly not miss out on the next installment.
I enjoy the occasional YA novel, but usually prefer more adult material like Kresley's IAD series. This story, however, completely blew me away! I didn't want to stop listening & whenever I had to I would find excuses to plug my headphones back in. Kresley Cole did another outstanding job with plot & character development. She really draws you in and you find yourself even caring about what happens to the not so nice people. I can't wait for Endless Knight to come out... I hope they keep Emma Galvin as the performer!
