Hardcover, 384 pages
Published October 2nd 2012 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

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 it’s not always clear who is on which side…

~ Why I love this cover: 

I have loved this cover ever since I laid eyes on it. The whole thing is just gorgeous! I don't know where to start with explaining what I love about it. First of all, the two people on the cover are so beautiful it almost hurts. The girl is gorgeous. I love her hair and beautiful dress. The guy is amazing too. Very sexy in black. And that intense gaze of his has the potential to turn me into goo. I love the way the both of them are standing on the cover. 
The background on this cover is very striking. The fire behind them, the darkness, the colors that are mostly brownish but so beautiful. 

I own this book, though I have not read it yet, but so I saw the guy, who I assume is Jack, is also pictured on there on a bike! Hot damn!
There's also a sort of mini blurb on;

The characters on Tarot cards are real. The Huntress, the Fool, Death, the Lovers... and eighteen other Major Arcana all exist.
The warriors, femme fatales, magicians, and devils each have uniquely lethal powers.
And they're coming for me.
To survive, I'll have to embrace my own terrifying abilities. But if Jack ever beholds what I truly am, will he abandon me to my fate?


  1. For having such muted colors, this is a gorgeous cover. Great pick!

    Thanks for stopping by :)


  2. Fantastic review. I've seen this around a lot recently, but haven't read any of Cole's other books, so was a little reluctant to get it. Will certainly be giving this one a go now though.
