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!
I just loved this book! It's excellent. Author balances the elements artfully - story, danger, romance, reality. It's very cleverly executed with some surprises.
The performance, especially our hero's accent, is swoon-worthy.
So glad I don't have to wait a year for the next one!
I read this book in one day it was that good. Yes there were times when it frustrated me to no end and I wanted to smack Evie, ...... I'm in love with Jackson, and I found myself swooning every time he spoke cajun french to her. He was a strong and loyal character and someone you really wanted on your side in a post-apocolyptic world. I'm eager to see how everything unfolds with him after the cliffhanger.
The Empress doesn't get collared, or caged, or tortured. How artfully she beckons, how perfectly she punishes...."
Come, touch.... but you'll pay a price"
"Evie, I've wanted you from the first time I saw you. Even when I hated you, I wanted you." He raked his fingers through his hair. "I got it bad, me."
My heart felt like it'd stopped--so that I could hear him better.
"For as long as you've been looking down your nose at me, I've been craving you, an envie like I've never known."
I'm all about challenging myself lately so I'm using books to do that. They inspire & engage me so I can see what works. Reading is my life.
YES!!!! The performances were so good, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.
Evie, she has so much power but she is so scared. It shows that she might appreciate her power more.
When she finally takes charge. Stops being a scared little girl and hunts.
I love the author Kresley Cole and I have read almost every single book she has out so I thought I would give this book a chance. Honestly, I didn't expect much from it but I had a free credit and boy was I suprised. This book is action packed, romance packed, and follows this girl who stops using other people to define her and starts defining herself! I wish the ending wasn't such a cliff-hanger but...that's part of the fun right?
Not losing interest or being able to find a good stopping place because it just kept drawing me in without yawn breaks.
The near end...for spoiler purposes, I'll leave it at that.
Yes! I split it in two days though.
One of the best YA books I've ever read/listened to. I am eager to see where this series goes! Definitely not the same take on other common post-apocalyptic storylines. Refreshing in that sense and just very well written and performed!

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I was going to. I'm generally not a huge fan of apocalyptic scenarios, and it definitely felt like a young adult book, but it really kept me engaged. I enjoyed the theme of the Tarot, the spunk of the heroine, the twisty storyline and the focus on Cajun culture via the hero. This was also a particularly good book to listen to on audio -- I have no idea how accurate narrator Emma Galvin's Cajun accent is, but it was certainly sexy and added a lot to Jackson's character. The book ended on a pretty hefty cliffhanger, so I'll probably check out the next book in the series when it comes out.
