I’m sure we’d all love to catch a glimpse of the future (especially if it included tomorrow's winning lottery numbers—cha-ching!), but what if your visions showed an apocalypse? That’s exactly what happens in Kresley Cole’s YA debut, "Poison Princess."
The tale follows 16-year-old Evangeline "Evie" Greene. After a year of dark hallucinations, her Louisiana town is destroyed—just the way her visions predicted! With the help of the town’s Bayou bad boy, Jack, Evie discovers a group of teens sharing special powers and an ancient prophecy that leads to the ultimate battle of good versus evil.
Love the premise? Well you can thank a deck of cards for it.
"I couldn’t get this idea out of my head. [I] kept imagining what would happen if the 22 Major Arcana cards of a Tarot deck—like the Magician, Death or the Empress—were real kids," Kresley said in a statement about the inspiration for "The Arcana Chronicles."
Craving more? As a special treat to Hollywood Crush readers, Kresley and publisher Simon & Schuster are giving us our own glimpse of the future with a sneak peek of the dark and stormy cover for "Poison Princess."
Be sure to pick up a copy of "Poison Princess" when it hits shelves on October 2.
