Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.
But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses.
Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her?
Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she’s certainly no damsel-in-distress—she’s the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.
A book for all ages – Poison is an amazing debut. Continue reading
Featuring: Favorite Fictional Females
This one was difficult for me because I don’t really have favorites. There are those that I tend to really like, but as far as favorites go, it’s always a tough choice. So I took the easy way out and just chose a book on my re-read list (because I love the book and must read it again). I chose Poison by Bridget Zinn, which is a really GOOD book. And for my creative output, I thought of just doing a short bio for her. I cannot really give an actress for her because I’m not that updated with film or television. I don’t know a lot of celebrities. The cover makes a good picture anyway. Although she reminds me of Liv Tyler – a younger version maybe. A lot of details were omitted to avoid spoilers~ Anyway, here goes…
