Kyra is on the run. She tried and failed to kill the princess who is also her best friend and cousin. With the dubious help of a piglet and the charismatic Fred, Kyra aims to get it right this time.
What I thought: Interesting from beginning to end with many plot twists and turns. It's easy to get into. Poison is both a fantasy and a mystery. The books contains humor to keep it from being too dark. I like Bridget Zinn almost as much as Patricia C. Wrede. I didn't even guess at all the revelations toward the end. That's a mark of good writing--don't be predictable. I was very sad to discover that Bridget Zinn has passed away and Poison is her only novel. Well worth reading.
