Book Review

Genre: Fantasy, General Fantasy

RT Rating

This second book in the series lives up to the first, Poison Study. Snyder's clear, straightforward, yet beautifully descriptive style is refreshing, while the story itself is completely engrossing. New readers may be a little lost at first, but will soon want to acquire Snyder's first book while eagerly awaiting the next.

Former poison taster
Yelena journeys to her former home and is reunited with her parents and distrustful brother after being abducted
14 years ago.
Too soon, Yelena reports to the Citadel to begin magic study to control her wild talents. Her propensity for
trouble, however, entangles her with
a displaced king, jealous students and
a gluttonous horse. Then a serial killer surfaces and Yelena uses her magical skill and newfound friends to find him before he strikes again. (LUNA, Oct.,
