Audiobook review:Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles #1) by Kresley Cole

An apocalyptic event has destroyed Evie’s hometown and killed her mother. What makes it worse? Evie’s prophetic visions predicted it all—but she wrote it off as one of her freakish dreams. Now Evie teams up with a wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. They are forced to leave town on a road trip heading to meet Evie’s maternal grandmother. Meanwhile, Evie is coming to terms with the fact that she has special powers—powers that have revealed themselves to her slowly.
The mythology of the story is inspired by Tarot cards. Evie is the personification of the Empress Tarot card, the genesis of her abilities. Along the way, she and Jack meet teens who have taken on the powers of other Tarot characters. It seems an ancient prophesy is being played out, and these teens have been tapped to reenact the battle.
When i first started this audio book it was slow starting out. When i was done there were more questions like what caused the Apocalypse? The concept behind the book is awesome. Jackson has some issues that i hope he works out in the next book. The story line was slow at times. The characters were weak but I had no problem getting to know them. the narrater did an awesome job. The voice is so easy to listen to. I am hopin that the author answers so of my questins in book 2. I did (outside of the slow parts) enjoy the book. and  will be getting part two.
