Waiting on Wednesday: Poison by Bridget Zinn

Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 


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.

Coming out on March 12, 2013


  1. Great strong, smart female character.  This is exactly what YA and Adult readers need to see. 
  2. I see great potential from this synopsis.  i mean, who wouldn't want to read about a strong girl, a cute pig, and an adventurer running in the wilds avoiding armies and ex-boyfriends.  Great amount of drama to come, I'm sure
  3. Beautiful cover.  At first, I thought this was going to be a Fairy-tale retelling about Snow White, but covers can be deceiving.

So what are you waiting for?

Happy Reading!

  4. This one sounds excellent! For some reason the girl on the cover reminds me of Kristen Stewart from Snow White & The Huntsman. Great pick and I'm a new follower!
