Kelley Winslow is back and mourning the loss of Sonny who is off in Faerie chasing after the wild hunt that Kelley's mum, Mabh has released (or did she?); Unfortunately for Kelley her anonymity is no longer secure and she's being tracked by a crazy mugger (of all people!) With the help of Fennrys Wolf and Sonny's other Janus' crowd, Kelley will need to find out who is helping her and who is against her. But will she also be able to be reunited to the love of her life or will the knowledge she learns about his history tear them apart?
I really enjoyed this story. I love how Lesley weaves in Shakespearean lore and common day sensibilities. I particularly love the romance between Kelley and Sonny, it's real, not forced and you know they really care for each other. This book is a real treat.
Poison Study, Maria V. Snyder, (4 Bookmarks)
Yelena has confessed to murdering a General's son and has spent the last year in the dungeons underneath the Commander's Castle, when her number is up for the noose, she is spared by the Commander's second in command, Valek. Yelena is appointed the Royal Food Taster which could kill her anyway. But when her life is proven to be in danger time and time again, Valek takes an interest in keeping her alive.
I really, really enjoyed this book. I found Maria's writing to be refreshing and the storyline to be completely exciting! I couldn't wait to find out if there would be some romance between Valek and Yelena and the storyline with the Commander was bizarre, but brilliant! I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys fantasy, good storytelling and a book that you can't put down
