I am enamored with ‘Poison’.
I haven’t felt so wonderful reading a novel in ages. Finally twists I don’t see coming, adventure that swept me off my feet and a girl as stubborn and pig headed as I am. How could I not fall in love? Plus, did I mention there is a pig in this, poison throwing darts, crazy witches and royalty? I kid you not, no matter what is released later this year, this book will be my most beloved novel of 2013.
Have you ever read a book that brings back that first sense of adventure you had when you started reading? This did that for me. I was swept off my feet and by the time I looked back up again hours had passed. I am a huge fan of ‘literary Easter eggs’ as plot tools and this book was bubbling to the brim with them, Bridget Zinn really knows how to write.
Yes, to all of you readers who are fed up with series-
This is a stand alone novel.
One that actually ties up all of the lose ends into a magnificent bow at the end leaving you feeling like you just just read the most fulfilling novel and adventure you can imagine. I absolutely fell in love with this novel.
You know those review that say, everything you want in a book you will find in __________.
Yeah, in this case it is actually true.
Adventure, romance, humor, fantastic characters who show real growth, excellent pacing, non-stop action but with attention to details and world building and a story you won’t forget.
I may be addicted to e-books but I am definitely going out and getting a hardback copy of this book to keep on my desk right next to ‘The Fault in our Stars’ to remind me why I write.
Poison is simply prefect.
