Sixteen-year-old Evie Greene thought her horrific apocalyptic hallucinations were a sign that she was slowly losing her mind. But when her visions come true, decimating the world around her and killing everyone she loves, Evie is forced to accept that she was seeing the future.

Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she turns to wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate, the gorgeous and dangerous Jackson Deveaux for help. As Jackson and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have got the same call and discover that Evie is not the only one with special powers. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and as the battle between good and evil intensifies, it is not always clear who is on which side… (Goodreads)

This book sounds amazing! I love books of this type.  I have not read anything by Kresley Cole before, and I think this would be a great place to start. I'm really looking forward to checking this out. :)

What are you Waiting for this week???

  1. Oh yes, I'm definitely looking forward to this one as well. It sounds really awesome. Great pick, my dear! :)

  2. I'm pretty curious about this one. I always wanted to read her adult series and never got around to it.

  3. Seeing a lot of this going around! It looks pretty interesting too!

    Here's my WoW

    Have a GREAT day!

  4. I have not read anything by her either. Very excited to start my copy of this though, it does sound really good. Great choice Christy!

  5. I need this book! It sounds amazing and it will be my first Kresley Cole read as well. Great pick! :)
    My W.O.W.

  6. I really love the title for this book; that's what is keeping me interested as I'm not totally certain I'm interested in the plot.

  7. LOVED THIS BOOK!!! And I want to read it again! Kresley Cole writes great adult and she brings that talent to YA dystopian. You're going to love it!

  8. Poison Princess is pretty good. The love interest is dreamy, and he's got a Cajun accent. Plus, it's more Post-Apocalyptic than Dystopian--which I like. KC's a great author, but you never know how great authors will make the transition to YA. I'd say she did a great job.

  9. I'm looking forward to this one too! I'm trying to work out how the title ties in with the synopsis, it's really intriguing. Great pick :).

  10. This would be my first Cole book, too. Like you, I think it a good place to start. I'm loving the Louisiana setting and I really hope I get to read this one!

    My WOW

  11. I love the name Jackson, so bonus there! Gorgeous summary and an intriguing plot make this one an easy pick for my TBR pile though!

    My WoW

  12. This one does sound pretty good and who can pass up a dreamy guy? Great pick, here's my WoW:

  13. I got this early but haven't gotten to it. It does look really good though. Nice choice.
