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....

Love this YA Series!

Any additional comments?

I believe that this book is better than the Divergent trilogy, which Emma Galvin also narrates as Tris. I loved Poison Princess and the two follow ups were even better. The story continues to build and change. Kresley Cole is a great story teller and Emma Galvin does a great job bringing Evie to life. If you love other popular YA dystopian novels like Divergent Trilogy and Hunger Games Trilogy, I believe you will really like this series.

A ride!

Spellbinding writing, immerses the reader immediately, great performances by narrators.
Only don't use the characters as prototypes for real, healthy relationships-- some objectification as well. Main character is endearing, developed well. An exciting/entertaining read!

Listened to it in 2 days!

A well written and unique story . I enjoyed the female narrator much more than the male, but he only narrates a small portion of the book. Can't wait to check out the next in the series!

Great Start. Great End.

Book one seems to be a firm start for a series. I hope it lives up to its promise.

Fantastic!!

Excellent narration, loved the evil voice of Arthur, and the main voice of Evie was fantastic, and performed all of the different accents well.
Great story, have to admit I went into this blind, and was surprised. It was not what I expected. Dystopian. Post apocalyptic. Zombies (bagmen). Survival. Magic.
A great story, great world building, great character development.
