    1. 11 Oct. '14For those who have read the 2nd book and can confirm things for me, here are my predictions on Endless Knight.19 Oct. '12Be forewarned! There shall be a lot of cussing and angriness and bitch-slapping in this review. If you are a fan of this book/author, or/and not a fan of cuss words in reviews, I highly advise you not to read as I do not want to offend anyone.**********Like an old, dying, rheumatic ox plowing through a field of mud and shit. All for the promises of a harvest of fres [...]

    2. Unpopular opinion review time!You know how it goes: you loved this book, I didn’t. I’m actually very much dismayed by that, because I stepped into this apocalyptic world with such an overall optimistic state of mind – hell, I expected my first book by Kresley Cole, a New York Times bestseller, to be a winner!Oh boy. My state of mind shifted quickly enough and darkened considerably. Basically, I didn’t like anything about this book. It’s a huge “It’s not you; it’s me’’ case, s [...]

    3. “If you touch me like that again, Evangeline,” he began in a husky tone, dropping to his seat once more, “in the space of a heartbeat, I will have you off this bike and onto the closest horizontal surface. And I woan be picky, no.” Oh for the love of all things holy, this book is amazing! This was my first book by author Kresley Cole and honestly she couldn't have done it any better. She had me compelled from the very first page with her amazing talent for storytelling and also for her i [...]

    4. Young Adult???? Are Kresley Cole follow her dear friend's path, Gena Showalter to write YA? Ugh, less smex scenes! *shakesfist*And I want Thad! Please continue writing Immortals After Dark, rather than start new series.Please, I beg you :'(

    5. SpoilersI couldn't be bothered writing a review, so you'll have to make do with this nonsensical rubbish:Evie: Woe is me. I have harrowing visions about the apocalypse. Woe is me. I had to spend my summer in a mental hospital. Woe is me. I hope my friends don't know about what a ghastly time I've had lately. Woe is me. I am so rich, popular and beautiful. Woe is me. I am dating the most perfect guy. Woe is me. By jove, who on earth is that new fellow on the motorcycle? Oh my, just one glance at [...]

    6. This is a tough book to review because there is a lot to like here. The concept behind the book is great, and I loved watching the puzzle pieces unfold, guessing who was who, seeing their powers in action, taking note of the symbolism, etc. But there are definitely some big problems with the book, which make it hard for me to recommend it.The first chapter is intriguing, but then we're subjected to many boring pages of life before the Flash. The apocalyptic event mentioned on the back of the boo [...]

    7. Rating: A+ Heat: SweetI was nervous and anxious and a tad apprehensive to read this book. Kresley Cole is one of my ABSOLUTE favorite authors. If she writes it, I will read it. As proven by the fact that the moment this was available to preorder – I did. And yet, as excessively excited as I was, I also worried. Needlessly, let me tell you. It rocked. It rolled. It annihilated my expectations. And reaffirmed exactly why Miz Cole is an auto-buy author for me.Poison Princess is not the same ol [...]

    8. I did not finish this bookere were several things towards the beginning of the story that just had me laughing, it was so ludicrous. For example, the Big Bad Cajun Motorcycle Gang (also known as the Sharks and the Jetsoh, wrong story). They speak in heavily-accented Cajun patois, they have bikes with stolen, mismatched parts! They wear motorcycle jackets, their hair falls in greasy locks over their eyes! They rumble up to their new school in a crowd of big, bad, wolfery and start chatting up and [...]

    9. I can see why others might like this series, but it’s definitely not for me. It’s just a series of YA tropes and total "wtf" scenes. MINOR SPOILERS:The story starts out told through the POV of what seems like the world’s creepiest serial killer or something. Then Evie starts to tell him the story of how she survived the apocalypse and made it to his house. At the beginning of her story, Evie has started to hallucinate weird things like burning people and Death calling her “Empress” and [...]

    10. This review is also available over at my blog.________________________Actual rating is 2.5 stars. Or 2.75, not sure. Just lower than 3.For the first time ever, I might just only be talking about the love interest in this review. Because I have so much to say about him. Well, maybe I'll talk about him 98% of the time or so, but believe you me, I will rip this guy apart and say everything that's on my mind about him, so prepare yourselves.So, Jackson Deveaux. Ladies and gentleman, the unthinkable [...]

    11. Actual Rating:2.5Did I like it? NoDid I hate it? NoSo what is it? No ideaI'm going out to the beach for the holidays and will think more about it lol And while I'm out, HAPPY EASTER GUYS!!!! Or not But it's a great time to eat chocolate ;D

    12. Buddy read with the wonderful, Brittany DNF @ 30%Looking at other people’s reviews has me very concerned . . . are we reading the same book or ??? Poison Princessis about sixteen year old Evie Greene and her abilities in a post-apocalyptic world? I dunno, The plot is kinda hazy in my head. Instead, I was more focused on the characters and their douchebag qualities. Allow me to elaborate.Note: Evie is recounting her story to a literal psychopath –she doesn’t know –so she’s telling about [...]

    13. Litchick's internal monologue while reading this bookThe Prologue: "No fecking way! First person POV of a serial killer? Neato, I can totally get down with that. Errwith the book. Not with the serial killer. That'd be weird. And judging by his thoughts, painful."Thirty pages later: "Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"

    14. Oh my gosh!!! That was the most incredible pararomance I've read in a long time. What a wild ride! And now I'm wishing I would have waited until close to the 2nd book's release to read it because I want to still be in this story world seeing what will happen next! I love how we got to see Evie's world before the Apocalypse and after. I just really can't gush enough, and I can't find anything to complain about with this story. It was right down my alley and exactly what I needed.But I'll warn you [...]

    15. This review can also be found on my blog, Dana and the Books.Poison Princess surprised me.  I was expecting a decent and entertaining apocalypse story to keep me busy for a few evenings. I was not expecting to love it as much as I did or devour it as fast.The story started out with an insanely creepy prologue setting a dark tone from the start. Putting this at the start of the book was a smart move because the next 10% of the book is actually the worst part of the story. Evie is the stereotyp [...]

    16. PJV Quickie: Holy Mother of YA Goodness…did Kresley Cole write a book! I’m still getting the chills thinking about this ‘Poison Princess!’Original Review posted here.Review:Can I just say that I love Kresley Cole? I think I need to elevate her as my new favorite author. Her writing makes me happy and wiggly and I ponder it for days afterwards. I want to roll around in her words and fall in love with her main characters. Her latest adult addition to the Immortals After Dark series had me [...]

    17. What the actual fuck was this book? It was awful. The beginning dragged on and I was honestly waiting for Jackson to become nice. But the entire time he was a jackass. A rude, drunk, mean, horny jackass. And Evie actually cared about him??!!! I'd have let him rot for what he did and said. I never read such crap before. I have never hated a love interest before but Jackson changed that pretty quickly. Evie is also very annoying. I was waiting for her to toughen up a bit but dear God she was so un [...]

    18. "The Empress doesn't get collared, or caged, or tortured. How artfully she beckons, how perfectly she punishes."The Poison Princess is set in a post-apocolyptic world, where after a Flash of light that has wiped out most of the human race, turned others into blood-sucking zombies, cannibals and women raping militia, 22 children are chosen to re-enact a war that has been playing out since the dawn of time. Each a card in the Major Arcana, the trump cards in a Tarot deck, they must battle to the d [...]

    19. 1.5 stars‘Poison Princess’ was very strange from the beginning, and it doesn’t help that none of the main characters were very likeable. The main character, Evie, was really bland, and despite all her freak outs I never really felt the depth of her emotions. Meanwhile, Jack, the “love interest”, is a lecherous drunk who talks about himself in the third person. There are some tiny hints of goodness in him, but he’s never really a reformed bad boy - he’s just plain bad. He supposedly [...]

    20. DNF 66%I think the main reason I kept reading this book, and ignored all the red flags was because of Jackson Deveaux.Jackson Deveaux, I love you.But Evie, was one of the stupidest, weakest and most annoying heroines I have ever read. Aside from that, I actually didn't get the point of the entire book. So it's the apocalypse and they're looking for Evie's Gran. Evie's disjointed visions got annoying. I don't know what else to say, I wasn't impressed I guess.

    21. Posted on Under the CoversI should never have doubted Kresley Cole. To tell you the truth, I was worried in the beginning. I adore Cole’s Immortals After Dark series so I wondered how she would fare writing a YA novel. The opening chapter had me lost because it is a complete 360 to what I am used to from her. But I kept with it and found that KC puts a lot of effort into her debut YA novel. She makes use of the frame narrative where there is a story within a story and I found that it works ver [...]

    22. WHAT! THE! HELL! 4.5 - Bouncing between 4 and 5. Have to give it some thought.Okay, so I was a little hasty about the rating right after I finished the book. The prologue was definitely a hooker. And the end was so explosive that it made me literally yell out, "What?!? I can't believe that was the end!!!" To the point that I had forgotten that I DID have problems with this book early on.So my true verdict a week later? Maybe 3 for the first half, and 5 for the last part. My review IS long, so if [...]

    23. Review posted on Demon Lover's books & MoreI don’t usually read YA, but for Kresley Cole, I made an exception. Not only is she one of my all-time favorite authors, I love her rich world-building and swoon-worthy heroes. Her sense of humor is the icing on the cake! Pay attention to the tarot cards.I LOVE the idea of each major player in the series identifying with a tarot card. I love that it’s very much like those old Highlander TV show/movies from the 90s-the whole There Can be Only One [...]

    24. The CONCEPT of this book captured me more than the actual book, but if you like YA novels and interesting world-building, then you will definitely get into it. Tarot cards embody the main characters of this post-apocalyptic world. I liked everything but the main characters, actually. The main dude in particular I wasn't drawn to, but the plot was SUPER interesting and concept really strong. I really want to see where this goes! Read this for Vaginal Fantasy.

    25. DNF @ 1015?% Okay kids, its time I sit my ass down and write this reviewI'm not procrastinating on my Chem homework, what are you talking about? I haveneverDNF-ed a book this fast just so you know, I try to get to the 50% or 25% mark atleast, but then everything changedwhen the fire nation attackedwhen this book happened.First things first, I don't evenknowwhy I picked this book up, the synopsis sounds like every other cliche YA fantasy trope mixed into one book, bad boy, good girl, unknown powe [...]

    26. The Arcana Stupid Chronicles #1: quando il becero diventa apocalitticoCome è proibito il plagio, dovrebbero proibire la pubblicazione di idiozie simili, per la tutela e la salvaguardia del lettore!!BIG NO per me, rivoglio indietro i miei due giorni che ho impiegato a leggere 'sta robaccia (spinta da "Dai che ora migliora. Dai che la Cole è come un diesel, ingrana lentamente" Ma dove, è un catorcio punto e basta!!)La cosa più drammatica dell'intera faccenda è come la Cole sia partita da elem [...]

    27. To see the full review click visit YAL Book BriefsI blame my love for awful disaster movies for this book. I wouldn't have read it if I didn't like laughing at the absolute ridiculousness of 2012 or Independence Day. But here's the thing at least in the movies you have the bad special affects and acting to keep your interest (and sometimes if you're lucky, some fantastic abs too), but in bookst so much. It also doesn't help, well, let's talk about it. Shall we:Oh, God.This is going to be brutal. [...]

    28. Amazing World Building, Spine Tingling, Pulse Pounding Action, Intense, Dark and Sexy, Wow!This is my first Kresley Cole novel ever and I absolutely loved it. I cannot wait to read her IAD series. She is an amazing storyteller. She is just fantastic with her world building. I felt like I was right there with the characters. This is by far one of the BEST YA novels I have ever read. She is incredibly talented. This was one of the most unique stories I have read as the characters represent the Maj [...]
