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. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I really, really liked this book. The only thing I did find is there was a couple things that were so obvious it was frustrating that the characters didn't notice. But, all-in-all, this is an excellent book. If only certain things weren't made so obvious to the reader (might have just been me, I guess) this would have been given five stars. Definitely one of my favourite books! "

    " Super happy with this book! It seemed like it was going to be really boring at the start but the action started coming and I couldn't put it down. Loved the way everything played out in the end. It was expected but surprising in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista | 1/15/2014

    " I literally read this book in one night. From the first page I was drawn in by Yelena and her plight as a soon-to-be-executed prisoner and her choice of becoming a poison taster or hanging. Told in first person, the story moves along quickly as Yelena tries to learn to trust again and uncovers a potential conspiracy involving outlawed magic use in the military dictatorship that has overthrown the kingdom. The characters are likable and there were more than a few twists that keep me turning the page. "

    " Loved the book! I felt so bad because Yalena never really got much of a break throughout the book but it was beautiful none the less "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 1/7/2014

    " A very great main character. The unraveling of her history is well done and riveting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 MiniMe | 12/30/2013

    " Absolutely loved! I've read the whole series and I am about to read again once more! ***Spoiler*** Third book is very long and considering its the last in the trilogy it's a very good thing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Zaphoddent | 12/17/2013

    " The makings of an interesting idea were present but the delivery leaves a lot to be desired. The writing is very basic and lacks any kind of depth. Once you remove the stated opening premise, all that is left is just pure fluff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennah | 12/7/2013

    " A little predictable, but cute :) "

    " Will defs do a review for this, but a short-ish one where I can air out my thoughts on it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cory | 7/12/2013

    " There wasn't one dull moment in this story where I felt bored. Perfect amount of action and magic. The romance was realistic and left me actually wanting more. Great book, and I'm glad I picked it up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Enna Isilee (Squeaky Books) | 9/27/2012

    " Took this down to 4 stars just because there were SO many accents in this book. People from the same place talked in five different ways and I have no idea why. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie Alner | 7/19/2012

    " I loved this book! It was awesome. It did take me a while to get into it but once I did I was amazed. The story line was just great! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat | 3/23/2012

    " Tore through this book fast. It's a good one. The only vice was the inconsistencies in the lead male character. That was grating, particularly at the end. "

    " Poision Study was... 'unputdownable' to say the least. From the cover to the contents, there was nothing that I didn't like about this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 5/7/2011

    " I loved this and was thrilled when I found out it was a series. I read this on a whim looking for a fantasy themed story. The characters were well developed and the story not too deep. I was glad that there was not a lot of excess writing. "
