WINNER OF THE 2018 ONE BOOK, ONE COMMUNITY
Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder. Thank you to readers who voted during August, 2017.
Poison Study is a rollicking, exciting fantasy novel with a strong, intelligent female protagonist, Yelena. Her world is authoritarian and rigid with strict laws. Yelena is offered a choice between death and becoming the leader’s poison taster. “Sieges weather, fight together, friends forever” is a quote from the book that encapsulates Yelena’s adventures as she learns to adapt to and change her world. On one level, this is a wonderful fantasy novel, but the deeper themes stay with readers for years.
Copies coming to Hershey Public Library in the near future.
