Published 2nd October 2012 by Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

She could save the world—or destroy it.

Sixteen year old Evangeline “Evie” Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future—and they’re still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux.

But she can’t do either alone.

With his mile-long rap sheet, wicked grin, and bad attitude, Jack is like no boy Evie has ever known. Even though he once scorned her and everything she represented, he agrees to protect Evie on her quest. She knows she can’t totally depend on Jack. If he ever cast that wicked grin her way, could she possibly resist him?

Who can Evie trust?

As Jack and Evie race to find the source of her visions, they meet others who have gotten the same call. An ancient prophesy is being played out, and Evie is not the only one with special powers. A group of twenty-two teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side….

Book Review: 1/5 stars

I am really surprised that I didn’t enjoy this book, because have you read the synopsis? Its sounded amazing. This is a very brief review, because I don’t need to rant. I just didn’t like it.

To be honest, it just didn’t feel like I was reading anything new. The characters were your typical run of the mill YA characters, they just lacked depth. The beginning was incredibly drawn out with the apocalypse not happening until 30 or so pages in. Which sucked, because when the synopsis says there is an apocalypse coming you sort of want it to happen rather quickly. Not for it to be drawn out when you are desperately waiting for the event.

I just didn’t connect with anything that was going on. Evie annoyed me, Jack seemed unrealistic…and the picture of him on the front is so hot. so hot. I’m disappointed.
