Sixteen year old Evangeline “Evie” Greene leads a charmed life—until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, killing everyone she loves, 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 trust 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 teens has been chosen to reenact the ultimate battle between good and evil. But it’s not always clear who is on which side…

This is one helluva action-packed adventure! The story is post-apocalyptic which I've really been digging lately. It also has a bit of romance which you get totally immersed into.
Jackson is one swoon-worthy guy! You can definitely see why Evie only has eyes for him. Can't blame her.
He is the type of guy that makes any girl's heart skip a beat.
The story also had a dark nature to it that I really liked. I wasn't expecting it so it was a pleasant surprise.
I look forward to the next book in the series. It ends in a spot where you'd rather it didn't, but that's they way most stories are....
Fantasy readers will really enjoy the paranormal aspect of the story while romance fans will love that part. Shows there is something for everyone!
