Poison Princess (Kresley Cole)

#1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole introduces The Arcana Chronicles, post-apocalyptic tales filled with riveting action, the dark mysticism of Tarot cards, and breathtaking romance.
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 it’s not always clear who is on which side…

I really did enjoy this book. It was quite different than anything I have ever read before. I wish I had researched Tarot cards before reading it and then I might have understood more. It is VERY fast-paced and I found myself unable to put it down with the last 100 pages. It is full of intense action and the romance is interesting as well. I like the addition of the characters through-out the book. It is more Sci-Fi than I had imagined and the "zombies" made minimal appearances..I found myself totally forgetting about the beginning of the book and the "high school" drama...I am not sure if that really had much affect on me...actually I probably could have done without it...Just start right out at "the Flash"....All in All I am looking forward to #2....
