Waiting on Wednesday: Poison Princess by Kresley Cole



I am super-duper excited about this book!

Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles, #1)

Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles #1) by Kresley Cole

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…

Check out the three chapter excerpt for Poison Princess.

Doesn’t this sound like it is going to be a wonderful book to read! The excerpt I read was so yummy and tempting. I cannot believe I have to wait another month to get my hands on it.

So what are you waiting for this Wednesday?

    I remember this one from the cover reveal (I think) but I had never checked out the description before. Big mistake! This one must go on the pile 🙂
    Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog!

    Great choice! I’ve had my eye on this one for a while! It’s not my favorite cover (neither of the characters seem really nice…), but it just sounds like it will be amazing! Thanks for checking out my WOW.

  3. Kayla B. says:

    I’ve heard great things about the author, but I’m not much for adult PNR. That being said, I’m much more likely to try this YA novel. I had completely forgotten that this was coming out.

    Thanks for sharing and visiting my WoW today! 🙂

    This looks great! I haven’t read anything by this author yet so maybe this will lead to a new author obsession 🙂 Excellent pick, thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for stopping by Book Cover Justice!

    *smacks forehead* I completely forgot about this book! I feel like such a bad fan *pout* I can’t wait for it too. I do love the cover though 😛
