Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up—A mash-up of supernatural romnance, Tarot mysticism, horror, and a dash of dystopia, this is a melodramatic gumbo that will divide teen readers into Team Jack or Team Death (the heroine's two beguiling paramours). Fans of the previous two books will be ravenous to get their hands on this latest installment.

Review

PRAISE FOR POISON PRINCESS

“An electrifying mix of page-turning, post-apocalyptic adventure and sizzling romance. The Arcana Chronicles will blow you away!” (P.C. Cast )

“The prose crackles with energy and interest, the content is on target in terms of current demand, and this could be the next Twilight.” (Booklist)

"A juicy cliff-hanger ending will amp up their appetites for further tarot-based adventures." (Booklist)

The Empress’ fragile alliance among the Major Arcana appears to hold together, which is good since her energies are focused on rescuing an ally from the deadly Lovers. She is joined on the quest by Death as well as her mortal boyfriend, Jack, both pressing her to make a choice between them. Gory at times and touched with humor, this engaging entry in the Arcana Chronicles gallops between postapocalyptic chase and rescue scenes while also occasionally pausing to explore the dual nature of love, filled as it is with both joy and torment. Read Poison Princess (2012) and Endless Knight (2013) first, and prepare yourself for a zinger of a cliff-hanger! (Booklist Online January 12, 2015)

Evie has finally escaped Death’s clutches and is on the run towards safety and towards formulating a plan to save Jack from Vincent and Violet, aka The Lovers. Or has she really? When Evie is back among her fellow Arcana, she is ridiculed and hated by most, and has lost the trust of her closet friends. Evie must once again prove her friendship and rescue the love of her life, Jack, before The Lovers torture his mind beyond repair. It is only with help from an unlikely source, as well as the growth in understanding her powers and the confidence to use them safely, that Evie will succeed in her mission to save Jack. While Evie is trying to come to grips with her love life, she starts to see that sometimes love is not always what it seems.

Cole does a great job interweaving the complexities of love and how it relates, in an allegorical sense, to The Lovers card. Evie’s character remains stagnant throughout this third book of The Arcana Chronicles; however, Cole always keeps the reader intrigued with a hint that The Red Witch is always lurking in the shadows, waiting to make her appearance known. It is the addition and evolvement of secondary characters that make this novel so appealing and aid in establishing plot set-ups for future books. This fast and exciting read is most suitable for those in upper high school, and would make an excellent classroom book for discussions on subjects such as symbolism and allegory. (VOYA Magazine, *STARRED REVIEW April 2015)
