22 Arcana cards. 22 young assassins. May the best hand live. Introducing The Arcana Chronicles from number one New York Times best-selling author 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, 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 depend on 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 twenty-two teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But ii's not always clear who is on which side....

I enjoyed listening to the book while doing other activities. On its own I'd probably have found the book a bit too boring.
The readers where alright, but again I've heard much better.
Generally I quite like this genre of books, but this one just did not impresse me that much. I doubt that I'll continue the series.
I enjoy the book it started a little slow in a little confusing but once I got past that I'm glad I continued listening already bought the next book looking forward to see how it continues
It took me about 3 chapters to get into this book. it was hard to get where the author was going. When I finally realized what was going on, I was hooked. The story is quite original. I thought the author's grasp of character building was paced perfectly. There was never a time that I thought one of the characters acted in a way a normal person wouldn't.
I've never listened to one of Emma Galvin's narrations before. For the first couple of chapters it took my awhile to get used to her voice, but now I am looking forward to hearing her rendition of the next book in this trilogy.
A must read/listen to book!
I love to read... love to listen while I walk my dog, Sally Jo.
2nd time with this book.... better each time. and it's not just for YA readers!
