I loved this book. I loved the heroine; stubborn, tenacious, determined. I loved the world that Snyder created. I loved loved LOVED the main love interest, Velek, stoic assassin? Check.
If you loved the Throne of Glass series, this book is a MUST read! - Catherine (QBD)
I loved everything about this book, and series, but nothing made my love it more than the wonderful cast of characters. Flawed, jaded, and forced to bend to world that has been changed by a war she was too young to really remember, Yelena fights to keep her head above water the entire way through this book. Such a satisfying book, you'll be rushing to buy the next one immediately! - Jillian (QBD)
This book overlapped in mystery and then intertwined friendship and politics until it fell together into a finished puzzle that gripped me the whole way through. It is the first young adult fantasy novel I have read that held so much diversity and offered important perspectives for young adults.If you like books with kick-ass, strong female protagonists and beautiful battle scenes, Poison Study has a whole lot of that too! I can't wait to read the rest of this series. - Dana (QBD)
Sentenced to death for murder Yelena is astonished when given the chance to live - the only drawback, she must become the commander's new food taster. Yelena accepts the offer and is introduced to a world full of politics, attempted poisonings, an unexpected love interest and even a little magic. Poison Study is a staple amoung fans of YA fantasy and for a good reason, Synder's writing keeps you on edge throughout the entire book as you slowly piece together Yelena's past and her future. - Grace (QBD)
A gripping story and an un-put-down-able book. I was compelled from page 1. The story is not like any other that I have read [it seems everything is vampires lately]. At the end of the book, I couldn't wait to start Magic Study.
An absolute must-read for bookies who love to lose themselves in harmless escapism for a while!
