I really really loved POISON by Bridget Zinn. Like, a lot. I don’t really know how to put all my loviness into a comprehensive review. So I thought instead I’d make you a list. Here are the Top 5 Things I Love About POISON:
1. The protagonist, Kyra, has a companion animal. And it’s not a horse or a fierce werewolf or a clever cat. It’s a pig. A magical pig. A PIG.
2. My favorite series as a young reader was the ENCHANTED FOREST CHRONICLES by Patricia C. Wrede. Kyra would so get along with Wrede’s heroine, Cimorene.
3. Pie. Kyra loves pie. I love pie. Pie.
4. This heroine is a scientist. She makes potions, and, yes, poisons. She is really really good at it, too, which is part of what got her in trouble.~ read more ~
