Wow, wow, wow!! Absolutely amazing! I was riveted to this story from the beginning. The world building is exceptional; the characters unique, as well as the whole premise for the novel. So
Poison Princess is set in a future apocalyptic world. The apocalypse is relatively new and things are settling into a “new” world. Evie has been pretty much protected by her mother and is truly a babe in the forest. Jack is an old soul in a young man’s body. He has seen too much and been through too much, even before the apocalypse. Evie and Jack initially met in high school and their very dissimilar worlds is a hugh barrier initially, but an apocalypse has a way of changing things and Evie struggles to reconcile what used to be with what is.
I’m going to say very little about the storyline here, mainly because anything I write will just ruin it. Needless to say, Evie’s and Jack’s relationship and struggles are intense and emotional and they are left at the end of Poison Princess with a wider bridge between them, than when they were in high school.
I’ve already ordered my copy of Endless Knight, the next book in the series. No release date for it yet, but I just do not want to miss any of this series.
