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 it’s not always clear who is on which side.(Goodreads)
I wasn't sure what to expect form this book. From the synopsis it sounded really interesting. I have to say I was not disappointed. This book had a lot going on such as visions, an Apocalypse, magic, a touch of romance and of course lots of danger. Though there was a lot going on I wasn't ever really confused. I thought the story flowed really well. I was hooked from the first chapter and didn't want to put the book down until I was done reading. I liked the contrast of life before and after the apocalyptic event. I t was interesting to see just how much life had changed for Evie. Poison Princess is a great story full of complicated characters and an interesting mix of magic and danger with a few twists thrown in to make the story that much better.
I'm really liking this cover. I love the darkness and destruction in the background. It contrasts well with the the awesomely dressed characters on the cover.
