One of my favourite reads of the year so far, Poison Study is a breath-taking blend of the beautiful and the deadly - which is almost a perfect description of both main characters. About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered a reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace, and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia. And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster. But the chief of security, leaving nothing to chance, deliberately feeds her Butterfly's Dust, and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonizing death from the poison.

As Yelena tries to escape her dilemma, disasters keep mounting. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and she develops magical powers she can't control. Her life's at stake again and choices must be made. But this time the outcomes aren't so clear.

Prepare to be swept away by this novel - the most un-putdownable of the year.

And, just as an added bonus, the enchanting cover makes it an aesthetic choice for any bookshelf! Later in the year, also look out for the next in the series, Magic Study and Fire Study.

    Comments about Poison Study:

    Maria V Snyder has always been a great writer and for a twenty year old (me) and forty year old (my mum) to both fall in love with the poison study series really says something. Highly recommend this as well as the healer series and her glass series. Great reads awesome stories never get old.

        Maria V. Snyder

        Meteorologist turned novelist, Maria's been writing fantasy and science fiction since she was bored at work and needed something creative to do. A dozen novels and numerous short stories later, Maria's learned a thing or three about writing. She’s been on the New York Times bestseller list, won a half-dozen awards, and has earned her MA degree in Writing from Seton Hill University where she's been happily sharing her knowledge with the current crop of MFA students.

        She also enjoys creating new worlds where horses and swords rule, 'cause let's face it, they're cool, although she's been known to trap her poor characters in a giant metal cube and let them figure out how to get out.
