April 2014 Book Club Selection: Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace—and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia.

And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster. But the chief of security, leaving nothing to chance, deliberately feeds her Butterfly's Dust—and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonizing death from the poison.

As Yelena tries to escape her new dilemma, disasters keep mounting. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and Yelena develops magical powers she can't control. Her life is threatened again and choices must be made. But this time the outcomes aren't so clear.

    That's awesome. If I can arrange sorting I may bring a guest. The man who turned me on to most of the fantasy that I have read

    It's so nice with this group how, even when not everyone is on the same page about how much they liked the book, there's still plenty of interesting (and humorous!) discussion about it.

    Mandi, please feel free to attend! Having finished (or even started) this month's title isn't a requirement.

    I will make it to one of these eventually! Unfortunately, this Friday just isn't going to happen. 'tis a shame, as I really enjoyed this book when I read it a few years ago.
