In this seductive follow-up to Poison Princess, New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole takes us deeper into the dark world of the Arcana Chronicles.
With threats lurking around every corner, Evie is forced to trust her newfound alliance. Together they must fight not only other Arcana, but also Bagmen zombies, post-apocalyptic storms, and cannibals.

I love the characters, action and imagination.
Evie of course!
I don't think this book could have been performed by any other than Emma. She is a one of a kind!
I was a bit taken back that this book was for young readers. It was a bit steamy in parts that I thought was not suited for young ears. I am so torn between the two guys!!!!
Ended with a torn emotions!!!! What a cliff hanger. Can't wait for the next book!!!!!!
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
This book starts right were the last book left off. I was so engrossed in the story I forgot to take my breaks at work, just continued to work and listen. In this book we get to find out more about Arik/Death and we discover there is so much more of him to like. Usually I'm not a fan of triangles but I like both of this men soooo much, I will take a sandwich please. So hard to pick which one I like better Jack or Arik. The world that Kresley Cole has created is amazing and so vivid to me, I want this to become a TV series. The use of Tarot cards are ingenious. I finally found another series that I'm super excited about, my only regret is that there is only three books out and that Kresley Cole doesn't write faster. Narrator does an excellent job and I am glad that only one was used in this book.
Not quite as fulfilling as the first book in the series but still worth while. The narrator still rocks!
This series is amazing....but a little upset that i gotta wait so long to listen to what is next.
What shall i do in the meantime but think about the possibilites of what will or may or could happen.
I have 3 kids that occupy all the TV's in the house...enough said...addicted to audiobook ....shhhh don't tell my husband ;-)
Please tell me I don't have to wait another year for the next book!!! Ends on a cliff hanger! not saying anything if your a Kresley Cole fan your getting the book anyways! ...And yes I am surprised what Kresley Cole got away with it the cave scene ;-) but appreciated anyways. Eagerly awaiting the next installment!
Devourer of all books fantasy
This was a good continuation of this series. I continue to enjoy this YA post-apocalyptic series where certain teens end up representing tarot cards and end up developing special powers to represent these tarot cards in a game to save or end the world.
I listened to this on audiobook and the audiobook is well done. I think the narrator does a good job with different voices and conveys emotion well.
This book focused less on what is happening in this post-apocalyptic world and more on the interactions between Death and Evie. We also meet a number of other Arcana which was interesting.
I am a bit worried that this series is turning into your typical YA love triangle type of deal. I am not a huge fan of love triangles. I plan on reading the third book and seeing where the story goes, but I am a bit leery because of where this book ends up.
Overall this was a good continuation of the Arcana Chronicles series. I enjoyed some of the new Arcana we meet and enjoyed the action scenes. I was a bit disappointed by the introduction of a love triangle of sorts. However, I am intrigued enough by the tarot card theme that I will read the third book and then decide whether or not to continue the series.
I'm an avid reader/listener very eclectic in my books. From classics too erotica to young adult, I love paranormal, futuristic and fantasy.
wonderful, thrill ride
Darkest Powers series by Kelley Armstrong. There both about young adults finding out they have powers that scare them and coming to terms with them. The youths are running from someone in both series.
My favorite book I can't read it because I love to hear the way this person speaks or how they sound for each character and I just can't read the book I have to finish it on tape I love it it's very good can't wait to finish it

I very much enjoyed this second offering in the Arcana Chronicles. Cole ups the ante and brings in more layers of complexity. She has subtly lifted the veil to show that humans, even immortals, are rarely black and white, purely good or evil. It is this creation of a vibrant spectrum of beings that holds my interest and has me eager for the next book.
The one complaint I have is that the narrator does not always make the different voices easy to distinguish, resulting in a bit of confusion. However, her Evie voice seems spot on, vibrant and mesmerizing.
I had thought that Jack was a wonderful foil for Evie, and never expected the history of Aric and Evie to add such an intriguing vine of emotion.
