Teaser Tuesday: Poison Princess by Kresley Cole

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Poison Princess by Kresley Cole.

Poison Princess –
Simon & Schuster

I didn’t remember all I needed to know. If I believed in Gran, then that meant I wouldn’t do just fine.
Nothing would be just fine. Unless I remembered.
— Chapter 6

This morning Jackson had told Matthew, “You mention death one more time, and I’ll knock you into next week. Comprends?”
“Already been there,” Matthew had answered.
— Chapter 33

Would you like some game to the death and Tarot magic to go with your apocalypse? Maybe also a dash of not completely plausible, but hey end of the world, opposites attract romance? If the answer is yes, then have a look at this series ... I’m fashionably late to the party but that means that I get to read three books without the wait. And there are supposed to be four with a cliff-hanger ending after book three. Of course, why not add a little reader torture? But until then I’m enjoying the scenario and the banter. And the protagonist growing into her power. The sympathy level was quite low at the beginning with the rich, slightly racist, goody two shoes, clueless, and a bit whiny cheerleader, but she’s grown on me. I look forward to meeting the other character whom I suppose will be the potentially awkward second angle in that love-interest structure.

I’m considering picking up a few notes on Tarot as it seems that there are quite a few books featuring the cards ... which book has last challenged you to acquire some extra knowledge to gain a better understanding? Let’s hear from you in the comments!
