So Friday Book Beginnings you choose the book you are currently reading or the one that is closest to you and share the first few sentences. For the Friday 56 you simply turn to page 56 or 56% on your e-reader and share a sentence or two that you enjoy. Then just add maybe a synopsis about the book in case others are interested. That’s it!
Poison Princess by Kresley Cole
Published on: October 1st, 2012
Synopsis: 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 Derveaux.
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…
Beginning: She’s so lovely, so fragile. Those haunted eyes. Those rosebud lips… they’ll scream so prettily.
Page 56: “I’m a Tarasova, Evie, a chronicler of the Tarot, I know things that nobody on Earth knows. And you’re the Empress. Just like the card in my deck. One day you’ll control all things that root or bloom.”
Thoughts: This seems like it’ll be an interesting YA apocalyptic novel. It has great reviews on Goodreads. I’m excited to dive into this one when I have the time! Has anyone read this one or heard anything about it?
