Preview- Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles) by Kresley Cole
Kresley Cole has a new series being released in October, 2012 called The Arcana Chronicles.
Being a favorite author of mine I was excited to hear of a new series, however, these will be Young Adult books and it’s also in the 1st person, going by the excerpt. Both of these things work against this book for me, I rarely read Young Adult and I don’t like books in the 1st person.
This is Kresley Cole so I will give it a go but Young Adult in the 1st person it’s going to have to be something extra special for me to get into. One thing in this series favor is that it’s Paranormal.
In her young adult debut, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole introduces a dark and intriguing world, full of unspeakable danger and irresistible romance.
22 Arcana cards. 22 young assassins. May the best hand live.
Sixteen-year-old Evie Greene’s horrific hallucinations predicted the apocalypse, and the end of the world brought her all sorts of new powers. With the earth scorched and few survivors, Evie teams up with handsome and dangerous Jack Deveaux in a race to find answers. They discover that that an ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of teens have been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side…
Sounds like it could be good, hope so, anyway something to look forward, I guess.
Have to say I’m a bit disappointed she is going down this route.
But I probably should be grateful she isn’t writing gay romances, which seem to be coming more and more popular – “Not that there’s anything wrong with that!” it’s just not what I want to read, so wouldn’t even attempt the book if that were the case.
Thanks for reading my romance book review blog.
