I really enjoyed reading it. It was so new and interesting and I absolutely loved the main characters.
Come, touch . . . but you’ll pay a price.
The book starts as your normal 'rich, good girl meets poor, bad boy'. Live is destined to get messy because these are very strong and stubborn characters. But you never imagine just how messy it'll get.
The beginning of the book showed us the 'Before' period where everything was pretty normal, well, as normal as it could be for a girl that sees the future.
Evie didn't know it at the time but those visions she had weren't just scary images her sick mind was conjuring out of nowhere. They were actually pictures, moments that are to come, and soon...
A big part of her life is a mystery, a blank in her memory, so that was her primary focus most of the time, well that and the new Cajun kids that just started visiting her high school, especially the very hot Cajun boy that keeps messing with her.
So anyway... As you can imagine, Evie wasn't all too concerned about those images she kept seeing, apart from the fact that they made her look crazy, because she zones out when she has one. She never thought that those horrific scenes were her own future. So it was somewhat of a shock when the apocalypse came and killed off the better part of the human population along with everything living like grass, trees, animals.. Everything that was directly under the sunlight turned to ashes.
That is when the real struggle began for Evie and Jack. Everything it different now...
Evie was about to set off in search of her grandmother but she couldn't very well do it all alone so that's when Jack reappeared in her life.
Their relationship was rocky even before the end of the world but now it's not safe to trust anyone but could she trust him?
I was truly surprised by this book. It was filled with very unexpected moments and it was so addictive. I couldn't get myself to stop reading it. I loved the was it was written ( I recently found out just how much that matters to me), and the story was very clever. The characters were amazing and they had such a chemistry between them.
“If you touch me like that again, Evangeline,” he began in a husky tone, dropping to his seat once more, “in the space of a heartbeat, I will have you off this bike and onto the closest horizontal surface. And I woan be picky, no.”
It was a love story buried deep in the ruins of our world and it was amazing.
The concept of the book the whole idea was very anything like it and I was truly fascinated by it and the creatures in it.
I enjoyed the conversations and the fights Evie and Jack always have. Whenever they were together there was this undeniable attraction that was so strong and it was very entertaining. And then there were these incredibly serious moments that can just break your heart.
"So you stay the hell alive! You don't do like Clotile, you doan take that way out. You and me can get through anything, just give me a chance."--his voice broke lower "just give me a chance to get to you." He buried his face in my hair, inhaling deeply. "There is nothing that can happen to you that we can't get past."
I loved the pace in which the book progressed and I loved it how in the end when the mystery from the very beginning of the book was solved it left us with more questions about the future of the story, rather than answers to the questions we already had.
“Remember my titles? I don't get poisoned, I do the poisoning. I'm the Princess of it”
It was a fantastic book and I'm so excited about book two. I really can't wait to see and read what happens next.
I give it:
Until the next time,
