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.

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 am in love with pararomance and am always trying to find new series with a great story and sizzling hot spots!
I love the history between The Empress and Death, finding this out was awesome!
This series really stands out from any other series I have read, one of a kind for sure! Kresley Cole is amazing, and this world she created is so awesome.
I honestly can't pick just one.
I relly don't want to give anything away here, but when Evie found out what Jack did....
This is a young adults book, but honestly I wouldn't let my child under 18 read it... although nothing in this book would probably be a shock to most teenagers these days, there are some pretty steamy parts.
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!
If the story was any good at all; I thought it was going to be a Kresley Cole masterpiece, this time she let me down
I don't think that she should be delving into children's books; this is what that felt like
She was ok, It took me some time to adjust to her way of telling a story
HOW DEATH REALLY JUST WANTED TO BE LOVED
WHEN DEATH TOLD HER THEY WERE MARRIED IN PREVIOUS LIFE
I LISTEN TO ALL THE BOOKS SHE READS
This book was a wild, bumpy, tense, romantic, angst-y ride. I took one star away because I really get annoyed when all the characters are so full of pride that they can't be real with each other. It was in book 1 as well, but the tension and romance made it worth it. But now, with Death and Evie (and everyone else for that matter), the pride thing is getting old. It seems like writers are just lacking imagination when they create characters that thrive on their stubborn pride. I think there are ways you can still create tension without doing that or with keeping it to a minimum.
In this book I liked the way the story unfolded with the other Arcana characters and how you learn more about their past lives. I can't wait for book 3 and can't believe I have to wait so long for it! Ahh!
I like how the author reveals bits of past history with the characters in previous games. I have come to love Death's character very much in book 2, but somehow feel that maybe our hot cajun love interest has just an interesting a story that is yet to be revealed.
The problem I had with the performance is my own. Emma Galvin is usually really good, but I just couldn't forget her as Tris (Divergent;) and therefore she didn't really step into the role of Evie for me. This is not usually a problem I have with good narrators. In fact, sometimes I even seek out other books done by the same narrator, when they are awesome performers, but Emma just didn't pull it off this time. I did quit listening by the 4th chapter and went to the library and rented the book.
My extreme reaction was that I actually liked both love interests even though I usually detest the "love triangle" ploy. Shame on me!
I would not consider this YA book appropriate for younger teens. I am not a prude, but there is sex and oral sex that seem to fit into the storyline but I personally would not want my 13 year old son to read it or listen to it.
I believe a story should be interesting enough to absorb me, not bore me. I live reality daily. And many times reality is brutal. So I look for a book that makes me forget. It has to absorb me into the pages. Kind of like going on a mini vacation. I like stories that make me laugh. I like stories that make me look for the next episode.
I had no ideal I would be lost, if I didn't buy the first book. So I have to get it before I can honestly decide whether this is good or not. The narrator's voice is so squeaky, I'm not sure I can stand it. At first I thought I was listening to a teenage boy whose voice was changing, but no I think that a girl, just a really, really nasal and squeaky voice. This one may be going back . . .
I think Poison Princess help my attention a bit more but I am still very curious to see what book 3 brings. I am still very much so interested in this series. I think book 2 took a very different turn than I expected so that is a great thing.
Listening the book brought moments of irritation (when I thought: "why I'm listening this book?"), anda moments wjere I really pay attetion..
In some moments the book is too slow.
Annoying, boring, tjresome
