Poison Study (Study #1) by Maria V. Snyder (Reivew)

   Simply enchanting. Poison Study was a captivating read starting from the get-go with interesting storytelling, setting the scene very well and informing the reader about the past while maintaining interest in the current story. In this story the strong main female lead character Yelena, is faced with a choice of becoming a poison tester for the Commander, or be hung for murder. Not much of a choice, Yelena joins the ranks of the kings staff under the eye of a handsome assassin, loyal to the Commander. In this heart stopping story, Maria (the author) constantly grows and develops not only Yelena, but those around her as well.
      Although it is not close to being the focal point of the story, the romance in between Yelena and... for the sake of spoilers I won't say, is very intense and well written. Ultimately I  really enjoyed this novel and give it the rating of FOUR OUT OF FIVE STARS!
