Sixteen-year-old Evie Greene thought her horrific apocalyptic hallucinations were a sign that she was slowly losing her mind. But when her visions come true, decimating the world around her and killing everyone she loves, Evie is forced to accept that she was seeing the future.

Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she turns to wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate, the gorgeous and dangerous Jackson Deveaux for help. As Jackson and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have got the same call and discover that Evie is not the only one with special powers. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and as the battle between good and evil intensifies, it is not always clear who is on which side...

Just inject this story into my veins.

Oh Kresley Cole, though I love your smut but I loved this. I could tell you wrote the book at certain sections, such as the main character being a confused girl with untapped power (check) and the allure of bad boys with attitude problems (check), but most the book seemed like it was written by a completely different author. Well done! That shows great skill to me. It was amazing to see how much you can focus on creating such a world and the people in it when you don't have to focus on other things.

Right from the get go I was snagged in the story. I loved the approach of slowly introducing everything and everyone in three different time frames. The 1st, the present after The Flash. Then through story telling the days before The Flash, and finally all the days after the end of pretty much everything, which leads to where our main character is at the beginning of the book. Though I was snagged from the beginning, the second I think I realised that the book was seriously going to hit me was before The Flash even happened. We are introduced to Evies best friend Mel at a number of points. After she did something that just made me love her character thinking My God I love Mel, straight after it was followed by holly hell and she is totally going to die in the next couple of pages That moment right there sealed the book for me. Its one thing to make me laugh (which it did), its another to make me sad. I was seriously depressed and completely heartbroken. There was also another point which nearly had me in tears.

I am never a fan of zombies, which seem to be completely unavoidable when it comes to post-apocalyptic stories, so that was a downfall for me. Though they didnt call them zombies and they didn't eat brains, they were pretty much the same. They were called Bagmen and they were gross slimy creatures that just want to suck up the remaining water from the earth and thusly attack people for the water in their bodies. However I really liked the idea of people embodying Coles interpretation of the Major Arcana Tarot Cards, and gaining power from them and engaging in epic battles that seem to repeat throughout the ages.

Be warned, the book ends on a major cliff hanger and many things go unanswered, and I dont know if this is an attempt by Cole to make people buy the next book or not, but I suggest having it handy so you don't have to wait to get more of the story!
