As the Young Adult market continues to grow by leaps and bounds growing numbers of successful adult authors are trying their hand with a new, younger audience. A handful of my favourite authors have already successfully crossed over to the YA market – Gena Showalter, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Kelley Armstrong among others – and now I am happy to report that the fabulous Kresley Cole has joined their ranks with the first novel of her new Arcana Chronicles, Poison Princess.
The post-apocalyptic theme is very popular in YA books and Kresley not only masters it, but she also manages to add a unique paranormal and mythological twist by blending in the mysteries of the tarot and the will of gods. The result is a dark, sexy, fantastical, but all together realistic tale that readers won’t want to put down. And don’t be dissuaded by the YA categorization – current Cole fans are going to love this every bit as much as her Immortals After Dark series.
The review is posted in the Book Review section and you can read it here.
