Evie is hearing voices and having visions. She’s sent to a center where they pump her full of pills to counteract her crazy. However, when she returns to school, her best friend, her popular boyfriend and some new kids from the other side of town, everything falls apart. She starts being able to control plants and the visions are getting worse, then they start coming true. Light and death, fall onto the earth. It’s the end of the world! It withers crops, decimates water and turns people in the worst way. Now, Evie must deal with the visions, her weird powers, the end of the world, bagmen (Zombie like creatures) and oh yeah, the bad boy from school shows up. It figures he’d survive but maybe that’s not such a bad thing.
I’m totally freaking out right now. This book is phenomenal! It is so weird in an ‘can’t put this book down’ way. The plot is a twisting row of vines and prickly thorns much like the main character Evie. She’s not crazy, she’s one of the few who might be able to actually save the world. The problem is, the visions don’t make sense and the voices are all riddles. She’s also distracted by the whole end of the world thing and Jackson. The bad boy Cajun with the accent that has this girl swooning. Yeah, I said it. Nope, I don’t regret it. The book starts with Evie in a serial killer’s house, telling her story, being drugged. I did not like this first-person point of view jumping. It is really confusing but it is only three short chapters so I’m begging you to press on. This story is amazing! The further the plot progress the more intense and crazy good everything becomes. Evie is falling for Jackson but a new girl shows up who may or may not be like her. There’s a bit of romance. There are bagmen attacks (Zombie like creatures) and militia on the hunt for survivors. It’s like the people who survived the apocalypse turned hard and cold but can Evie stay sweet in such a place?
Wow, Poison Princess blew me away. Right out of my freaking seat (not literally but my mouth was definitely hanging open). I’ve already ordered the next two books. I have to read them. HAVE TO. RIGHT NOW! (Grumbles about shipping time).
If you only read one book this year, you have to read Poison Princess by Kresley Cole!
