Jill @ Breaking the Spine hosts this weekly meme where we can share a book that we are so excited for and are anxiously awaiting their upcoming release!
This week my WoW pick is...
Poison by Bridget Zinn! Release Date ~ March 12, 2013 from Disney Hyperion
I think by this point it's no secret that I LOVE fantasy, so I was pretty much hooked at the first mention of "kingdom" in the synopsis. Plus it sounds like there are a whole bunch of rather complicated relationships going on, and I adore this cover to pieces!
Update: While looking up more info on Poison, I discovered that Bridget Zinn passed away in 2011. I'm looking forward even more to reading this book that clearly meant so much to her, and for the opportunity to get to see a little piece of her.
Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend. But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses. Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her? What about you? What amazing upcoming release are you waiting on today? :)
