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?
Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she's certainly no damsel-in-distress—she's the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.

                                   My Review:




First and Foremost I want to take a minute to honor the author that wrote this book and passed away before it was released. Your memory will live on!



This book was VERY HARD for me to rate and review! While it was a very adorable read and had very cute parts in it, it was a big let down. The reason I say that is because I thought it was going to be a dark twist type of fairytale. But it wasn't, it was actually the totally opposite. While that's okay, I probably would of read it anyway. But it was a disappointment when I started to read it and it became more of a lighthearted, sweet fairytale mix! Not what I was expecting!


Okay, Now that being said, after I got over the fact that it was not the book I thought it was, I decided to read it anyway because I bought the book and I wanted to honor the author, plus it wasn't a bad start to a book!



This book was an enjoyable light read. Very Cute and age appropriate for kids probably over 12. It had fun parts that made the story come alive on different levels then I'm use to! And one of those parts was when a cute little pig named Rosie came into the picture. She was a tracker pig...lol! Yeah, you heard it right! You put a basket around Rosie's neck, with an item of the person your trying to find and she'll lead you right to them! Such a cute little piggy.


Okay, Here's the Plot:


A potioner named Kyra or Kitty as they call her is on the mission to save their kingdom. She seen what the future holds if not alerted, but the bad part about it is that she has to be the one to change the future! But what Kara has to do is far more then she would of ever of imagined. She has to kill the princess to stop her vision from coming true! But that's not the worst part of it. The worst part of it is that the Princess she has to kill isn't just any princess, she's her best friend the Princess and soon to be queen of their kingdom!


How can Kara kill her best friend, really she's her only friend! But if she doesn't their kingdom will turn evil! How can Kara do nothing when she knows it is her that must stop the princess and save the kingdom from evil taking it over! She can't! So that's when Kara's journey starts!




When the book starts off it's after she tried to kill the princess and failed! She is a trained potioner and NEVER misses her poison darts from their targets! But she misses for the first time ever! And now she's a fugitive on the run from the Queens guards, while also searching for the princess again to get the next poison dart right! She meets a very interesting man on her journeys that just keeps popping up everywhere Kara goes. Who is he and what does he want??? And will Kara be able to stop the princess in time to save their kingdom or will the princess evade Kara and succeed in destroying the kingdom??? Well if you want those answers and more then you'll have to read and find out!



This was a very different type of book then I'm use to, but still very enjoyable. If you like sweet, cute fairytales then this is for you! Overall, I finally decided that I would give this book a 4 stars rating!

  1. Dark and creepy and twisted are usually the stories that I want to read. Devour, more like it. But there are times when cute and sweet is exactly the type of story that I want. Poison sounds like it would be the perfect read for one of those times. Especially because of Rosie! I mean, a tracker pig. Too cool! It breaks my heart that the author passed away before she could see what a success her story became...
