Publisher's Summary

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....

    "Awesome!"

    I hate it when the heroine is a big whiny, crybaby but Evie blew my socks off at the end. She has to be the most BA literary character ever! Katniss wouldn't stand a chance.

    "entertaining story"

    i will get Book 2. i look forward to seeing where the story takes us,. I do hope more details are given regarding the Arcana, i do think certain story aspects ie, Evie not trusting Jack and constantly mulling it over ,were done to death, while the basis of the story the arcana was given in tiny bits only.

    "Amazing!"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is completely immersive, dense with epic world-building, and witty dialogue. I'm completely hooked on the story and on to the next book today.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Galvin and Keith Nobbs ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm in love with Emma's performance. Her acting and versatility is amazing. I'd give her a million stars if I could. And I'll be seeking out more books performed by her.

    "Wow! Amazing story."
    Would you listen to Poison Princess again? Why?

    Yes! The story is action-packed with great characters, great setting, and a well-crafted plot.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the main character, Evie. She's both strong and insecure. I liked Jack as well, although, he was a little too arrogant at the beginning. (But that's great for the story--not a fault.)


    Which character – as performed by Emma Galvin and Keith Nobbs – was your favorite?

    Evie performed by Emma Galvin--but Keith Nobbs is equally impressive. They're both so talented and great to listen to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    My extreme reaction? Addiction.


    Any additional comments?

    I've been telling all my friends about this series. Thank you for the masterfully crafted story and the gripping audio performance!

    "This is the kind of series I search for"
    If you could sum up Poison Princess in three words, what would they be?

    Mystery, Romance, and Thrilling Story


    What other book might you compare Poison Princess to and why?

    Vampire Academy Series. Because I can listen over and over. The story is just so interesting. It brings a new world to life for me.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Galvin and Keith Nobbs – was your favorite?

    Of course JD and Eve.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    MORE!
