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 Deveaux.
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….
The Arcana Chronicles is based on the Major Arcana, with each of the cards being a real character. (Watch Kresley Cole talk about her inspiration here!) She mentions The Moon being a huntress with glowing red skin! Um, what?! That is SO COOL! The interesting thing is that I’ve often toyed with the idea of writing a story about the cards of the major arcana because they would easily be able to be brought to life. I am SO stoked to see how Cole interprets each of the cards and the characters she creates from them!
So what do you think about this series? Do you think you’ll read it; why/why not?
