Waiting on Wednesday (12)

Esta semana voltamos aos livros YA. Este é de uma autora bem conhecida no género do romance paranormal, que, como tantas outras, decidiu lançar um livro direccionado para o público "young adult". "Poison Princess" é o primeiro livro de uma nova série pós-apocalíptica, e parece-me bastante interessante (se bem que confesso ter algum medo que acabe por resvalar para os clichés habituais do romance instantâneo e o foco na relação adolescente).

Poison Princess - Kresley Cole
Editora: Simon & Schuster
Data de Publicação: 2 de Outubro 2012
Páginas: 384
Idioma: Inglês
Descrição (GR): "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…" 
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.
