Book Club: Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

Jump to Comments

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder is the last Book Club selection for the summer session. Posion Study is the first in a three-part fantasy series; on Goodreads (a social network for book fans) readers (13,431 so far) give the book 4.41 stars.

The description from Goodreads:

Choose: A quick death…Or slow poison…

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…

Book Club meets Tuesday, July 19 @ 2 pm in C103 (the Midlothian Student Activities Office.)

As always, snacks and drinks will be provided. Read the book (or even just a part of the book), bring a friend–all students are welcome!
