ALA Best Book for Teens recipient Chris Wooding delivers “a twisted fairytale fantasy” (Wooding) sprinkled with marvelous characters and seasoned with incredible plot twists. In the rotting stilt-village of Gull just above the foul-smelling Black Swamp, sixteen-year-old Poison vows to rescue her kidnapped sister from the phaeries. A wise friend reluctantly provides the money, directions, and ancient lore necessary for her journey. Poison soon encounters the treacherous phaerie lord, the terrifying bone witch, and the deceptive spider queen. But when her reality is completely upended, Poison questions whether she can save anyone.

    " After her baby sister is kidnapped by a henchman of the faerie lord, Poison leaves the marsh where she has lived for her entire life in a bid to get her back. A new take on fairy tales for YA's, with a surprise twist towards the end. If you like: The Neverending Story, The Golden Compass "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daria | 1/24/2014

    " Definitely not one of my favorite books of all time, but it does prove an engaging, haunting changeling/faeire story. A bit slow paced. I very much enjoyed Wooding's Storm Thief, which I think is better work from someone who usually writes action novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/18/2014

    " This book is fairly dark and mind-bending. If you like fairy tales with happy endings, this may not be the book for you. It was fun to read something off the beaten path. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vanessa | 1/17/2014

    " I looooove this book im not really a reader but this book had my attention from the very begining. I wish theyd make a movie!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bonnie | 12/29/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. It is a fairy tale, with a dark edge. Poisen is the kind of female character I enjoy. She is strong, and smart. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bexemail | 12/12/2013

    " this is a great book! i really loved it because of the themes and morals in it. it is a must read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Traci | 12/6/2013

    " It was interesting but there were a few things in the story that didn't seem to add up in my mind. The story really kept me interested and I wanted to know what was going to happen next. I'll probably re-read the book to see if I like it better the second time around (that happens on occasion). =) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tina | 11/11/2013

    " I realised that some books can seem more like a horror film than a novel. As I remember, it was eerie and I fell in love with it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 TMJ Jennings | 9/8/2013

    " "This ain't no fairytale." Clever and daring. Delivers action packed thrills and self-referentiality that ultimately turns the story on its head. A tour de force from a cracking writer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angel | 8/20/2013

    " amazzzzziiiinnngggggggg <3333 "

    " Not too bad, but not amazing. Some witty lines thrown in and some cool characters; again, not bad. "
