Poison by Bridget Zinn

Kyra is an excellent potions master, but she's more than that.  She doesn't want to admit it and doesn't let anyone else know about it.  You can only hide things so long.

Disney Book Group and Net Galley allowed me to download an ebook of this story for review (thank you).  It will be published March 12th, so make a note on your TBR list to pick up then.

Kyra knows the kingdom she grew up in is in danger.  She sees death in the future.  To save her people, she must kill her best friend.  The princess has changed and she's the vessel of destruction.  Kyra has no choice, even if it hurts her heart.  But when she tries, she misses!  She never misses.  And, in this case, she didn't miss either.

The young adult characters in this story are strong, self-sufficient, and willing to fight for what they believe in.  I found myself entwined with Kyra and the princess and the young man named Fred she met while hiding out.  They were so easy to relate to, there was humor in their antics, and it's a very good adventure.  There are a lot of secrets in the story and that's what makes it good fun to read.

In fact, I enjoyed this one enough I have preordered the book so I'll be sure to get a copy for my library.  The tale tantalized me and I want to read it again.  It's one of those books you can pick up and read over and over and it won't get old.  Why don't you get a copy and check it out?  

Happy reading.
