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....

    "AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I don't usually write reviews but man was this book amazing. I loved it a lot I'm a big fan of Kresley Cole from this series since it was the first book of this author that I read and I couldn't put it down I found myself at home walking everywhere with my headphone in. It starts of a little teenagerish in the beginning but works it was up very fast. It was amazing and I would DEFINITELY recommend this book to anyone else. I ended up listening to all 3 books withing 2 days and am trying to patiently await the 4th book. It is a book that really reels you in straight from the beginning and keeps you there.From reading this book I ended up getting hooked into every book from this author. So far I have read at least a couple books from every series she has and find myself getting withdrawals every now and then if I stray a bit too long.

    Story
    "This is a must purchase!"

    I listened to all three stories in The Arcana Chronicles and the first is still My favorite. The author shows just how talented she is and her imagination truly shows in the creation of this story. The narrator did a magnificent job, especially with Jack's voice. I loved the accent that Jack has.

    Story
    "Enjoyable, but sometimes a bit boring"

    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.

    Story
    "So Utterly Impressed"

    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!
