Quotes & Awards

  • “Lyrical and lovely, a fast-paced literary gem.”

    Ally Carter, New York Times bestselling author

  • “A passionate story…Wood does a marvelous job of creating heart-wrenching decisions for her characters and portraying a doomed romance reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “This intriguing fantasy has many tendrils to wrap around teen hearts. The haunting ending will leave readers wanting to talk about the themes of cruelty, honesty, and loyalty.” 


  • “Wood fashions a narrative whose conventions of gothic romance intertwine with, then utterly succumb to, the brutal forces of human obsession. Absorbing.”

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Julie Eshbaugh | 2/11/2014

    " I LOVED The Poison Diaries. It's a great historical paranormal romance that was incredibly original, and kept me guessing. Themes of human motives, passions, and loyalties all make this an incredible read. My only complaint is that it ends too abruptly... Bring on the sequel! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Gill | 2/3/2014

    " I didn't get on with this book. Although it is a quick read, there is no real development of the characters and I felt like there was something missing in the storyline. "
