Fans of Kresley Cole love her Immortals After Dark series for her strong heroines and their wacky wit and humor. Now Cole is getting ready to move into the YA niche with POISON PRINCESS (Arcana Chronicles), set to be released Oct. 2. (Where do they come up with these titles?!)

Here’s a description of the book from Amazon.com:

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.

On her website, Cole has more info about the YA novel and offers up an excerpt from the book HERE!!!

My question to you — are you reading more YA paranormal books now? I sort of have been leaning that way. Interesting to see which authors are switching demographics. Let me know what you think and drop me a line in the comments section when you have a chance!

(For fans of the IAD series, book No. 13 — SHADOW’S CLAIM — is coming out Nov. 27. It’s the story of Prince Trehan, “a master assassin who will do anything to possess Bettina, his beautiful Sorceress mate, even compete for her hand in a blood-sport tournament—to the death.”

I’m looking forward to reading this….sounds good. I’ve always read a lot of YA, but sometimes I will go in little spurts of a lot of YA and then back off a bit. It all really depends on what books from my TBR pile call out to me when I’m choosing my next book. I (finally) just blew through Lisa McMann’s WAKE trilogy – so good!

I liked the WAKE trilogy, too!!! I think I’ve read more YA lately. Not sure why. Maybe it’s the inner me yearning to be younger again! Although I don’t think I’d want to repeat my teen years. Blech.

I am a KC fan so I hope you read this and tell us about it bc I know I am not going to read it. I really hope it’s good bc I like her style and it would be interesting to see what she does with YA. For some reason I just cannot get into the genre. Hence the reason I have never read twilight or seen the movies.
