Wow, I really loved this. Totally couldn't put down. And the next one in the series will come out in October... Oh, well... I think I might need to check out the adult series by the same writer (although usually when I like the YA books of an author, I don't like their adult books, but we'll see). I might put this up there with the Hunger Games. ( )

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. My thoughts and opinions are my own. Any quotes I use are from an unpublished copy and may not reflect the finished product.

I really, really wanted to like this one. The tarot card element was unique and fascinating, but underdeveloped. I wish the author had focused more on the cards and how they related to specific people, since that was what initially drew me to the book. Instead, we're stuck with an obnoxious and whiny main character that shows very little growth and suffers from Me Me Me Syndrome.

Evie survives an apocalypse, yet her personality leaves a lot to be desired. I was willing to overlook her bratty behavior before, but not after. Small spoiler: Her mother was seriously injured -- likely bleeding internally -- and Evie thought protein was the answer. Her attempts to grow food nearly killed her, and she used certain talents without fully understanding them or their implications.

Jackson is supposed to be the sexy bad boy, but he's equally annoying and a pig. He toyed with Evie whenever they were together, and his motives remained unclear. Did he like her? Did he enjoy making her uncomfortable? Was he just an asshole? I didn't know, and I really didn't care. His interactions with Evie were aggressive, he's drunk most of the time, and all he cared about was getting into Evie's pants (or any girl's pants for that matter). The hate-to-love angle failed to hit its mark, and I honestly didn't care what happened to either of them.

The audio also wasn't a win for me, so I tried switching to a physical copy to see if that made the experience better -- it didn't. The creepy guy at the start of the book made my skin crawl, and I hope something terrible happened to him before the book's conclusion. Unfortunately, the rest of the book was so uninteresting and frustrating, that I felt like skimming to the end would've been a waste of time and energy.

There's also very little world-building, which was super disappointing. Again, an apocalyptic event happened, but there are very few descriptions of the world after the Flash. Honestly, there were hardly any details about the world before the Flash, so I guess I shouldn't've been so surprised.

I thought Poison Princess had a lot of potential, but it's a series I will not be continuing. The characters were terrible people, the world-building left a lot to the imagination, and I felt like the story was lacking substance.

Listened via audio book, really great oration by Emma Galvin. Relationship between these two is complicated and challenging. Will make you want to reread or relisten to the story. Keeps you guessing until the very end.

Want to know if the whole series is worth reading? Read my overall review of the whole series at seriesousbookreviews.com! Spoiler Free!

This book bored me to tears! It was so slow and Evie was extremely annoying to me.

I felt like nothing happened for a good majority of this book. I was into the exposition but the entire novel just seemed to one extended exposition. It's a shame because there are so many interesting elements that are at play and I wish they were used. Like the supernatural elements--they hardly have any role in this book until the very end and that was a huge disappointment to me.

I also didn't like the romance. Jack just didn't win me over so that didn't help my reading mood.

Overall, I was very disappointed in this book :(
