Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder Audiobook {4.5 Stars}

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder is just as delightful a read as everyone promised it would be! I listened to Poison Study on audiobook and highly recommend it if you have been wanting to try an audio fantasy. I found myself making excuses to listen to more, including doing more cleaning :D. Yelena’s predicament and resulting adventure were refreshingly unique for this long time fantasy reader and I’m excited to see more of this magic in subsequent books!

Note: I listened to an audio version of Poison Study. This very much influences my reading experience.

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...
