Murder, mayhem and magic…
Locked in a coffin-like darkness, there is nothing to distract me from my memories of killing Reyad. He deserved to die—but according to the law, so do I. Here in Ixia, the punishment for murder is death. And now I wait for the hangman's noose.
But the same law that condemns me may also save me. Ixia's food taster—chosen to ensure that the Commander's food is not poisoned—has died. And by law, the next prisoner who is scheduled to be executed—me—must be offered the position
Poison Study is one of those popular books even the pickiest readers love. So, of course, I eventually had to read it. Unfortunately, I just never got to the point of loving anything about Poison Study.
It wasn’t bad at all. I couldn’t point out one thing wrong with the story. The whole reading experience was meh to me. Didn’t love or hate. Didn’t particularly feel anything for any of the characters. Yelena and Valek were okay. Wasn’t feeling the romance at all. Only really liked the cook, Ari, and Janco.
It’s telling I can’t think of anything of substance to say about this book. So, I don’t believe I will bother continuing the series.
