Poison Princess: Arcana Chronicles, Book 1
UNABRIDGED
By Kresley Cole
Narrated by Emma Galvin, Keith Nobbs
Length: 12 hrs and 36 mins
Release Date: 10-02-12






22 Arcana cards. 22 young assassins. May the best hand live.

She could save the world - or destroy it. 

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 ii's not always clear who is on which side....

  1. I've never listened to an audio book before, so this comes from an amateur . . .

    The reader isn't bad, and made necessary emphasis points where they should be made so my brain would kind of spark whenever I hear it c: Love the storyline already, and yes, I NEED to read Poison Princess!

  3. "22 Arcana cards. 22 young assassins. May the best hand live."

    That line sounds very similar to the Hunger Games.

  7. I love audiobooks. I like the reader, she sounds convincing. I will have to see if I can find a clip with the male reader. I really like when there is a male and female if the book switches POV's (like the Legend audiobook, that's one of my favorites!) This book sounds really good and I think the audio of it would be really awesome!

  9. I like how the narrator captures a touch of teen angst but can also shift into practical needs of getting out of the situation without keeping the angry teen voice.

  10. This narrator does sound a lot like the Hunger Games narrator. That is a good thing to me that is. I have already added this audiobook to my Audible.com wish-list last week! I can't wait to get it!

  16. I just finished reading Poison Princess yesterday, and I was just thinking how awesome it would be to listen to the audiobook because of the cajun accents!

  17. Sadly, I can't get the audio clip to come up so I can listen to it. I have a blank white space where it should be, and refreshing the page doesn't help. I would love to win these so I could listen to them. I haven't read any of them yet.

  22. Love me some Emma Galvin!! I knew this was her before I even looked; very distinct voice, she did the narration for Divergent & Insurgent. The story sounds intriguing; that combined with other reviews that I've read pretty much guarantee that I'm going to read this book.

    On the other hand, Emma G could read almost anything & I'd listen, lol.

  28. Is the character supposed to have a southern accent? If so, this is great. The narrator does sound nasally but her emphasis is right on.
