Bookologist Analysis: You never know who is whispering in your mind.
In this seductive follow-up to Poison Princess, #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole takes us deeper into the dark world of the Arcana Chronicles.
Evie has fully come into her powers as the Tarot Empress, and Jack was there to see it all. She now knows that the teens who’ve been reincarnated as the Tarot are in the throes of an epic battle. It’s kill or be killed, and the future of mankind hangs in the balance.
With threats lurking around every corner, Evie is forced to trust her newfound alliance. Together they must fight not only other Arcana, but also Bagmen zombies, post-apocalyptic storms, and cannibals.
When Evie meets Death, things get even more complicated. Though falling for Jack, she’s drawn to the dangerous Endless Knight as well. Somehow the Empress and Death share a history, one that Evie can’t remember—but Death can’t forget…
Some people say that life is a full circle and everything is black and white. The past doesn't leave, it lives on in the present. Some say that breaking the rules is bad no matter what. Truth and lies, deception and trust, love and hate, sadness and happiness walk the same path. This is what the story is about.
I fell in love with this dystopian fantasy when I first read Poison Princess. I'm happy that this trilogy is setting new bars and highs. Love runs deeper here, passion is more passionate, and defined lines are blurred. This book truly made cry at the end at the heart and gut wrenching end.
The book starts right where Poison Princess ended. The world has end do to some freak solar blast and the gang (Evie, Jack, Selene, Mattthew, and Michael) are running from Death. I love the place each character holds. Selene is the over obsessed snob, but you see that somethings are meant to be. The way Matthew is over analyzing and cryptic, annoys you till you see the way the puzzle is put together. Jack is a Cajun Catholic boy, the main love interest of Evie, till you see how he truly starts to grasp what Evie is and that affects him.
This book is not all about action. It has the part where you have quiet realizations and doubts. The line that allies and enemies are blurred. One ally backstabs the rest of the allies. Enemies in another life were your allies. Old promises are kept anew or destroyed. The amount of action is the best amount. Your on the edge of your seat biting you nails right down to the stubs. This is the book where deception happens quietly.
I'm a sucker for the romance. I'll admit it. Jack loves Evie you know it in the way he tells her. Evie loves Jack. What happens though when the boy you love starts rethinking this decision about what you are. Then the bad boy walks in. This bad boy is passionate, he is tired of waiting. This bad boy is out for revenge and he wants his lover back for real this time. This bad boy is Death. And he's tired of waiting for his girl,
