Poison Study is an addicting novel featuring magic, food-tasting, love and of course poison. Yelena is about to be executed for murder when she is offered a reprieve but at a price. The commander needs a new food-taster and she can either choose death or the risk of assassination by anyone who wants the Commander dead. Yelena chooses to become the Commander’s new food taster. But the chief of security deliberately gives her Butterfly’s Dust and to live Yelena has to show up daily for her antidote or suffer an agonising death from this poison. Snyder does a fantastic job of getting the reader to associate with Yelena in her struggle to live. She does it so well that the reader is addicted right from the start and you’ll end up reading the entire book in one night. The next book in the series is Magic Study which is twice as good and twice as addicting as Poison Study. The third in the series is Fire Study which is set to come out in March and i’m annoyingly excited to read the next great novel by Maria V. Snyder.

Next in line to be executed for murder, Yelena is instead offered a chance to live – only by accepting the potentially lethal position as official food taster for the Commander of Ixia. Rather than face a more certain death, she opts for the only slightly less dangerous choice and begins her position recognition training under the tutelage of Valek, the Commander’s Second. She’s a quick study, but it becomes clear early on that someone is trying to get rid of her.

Although I enjoyed it, this book didn’t quite live up to the potential I thought the premise held. I still intend to read the sequel, though.
