POISON, by Bridget Zinn


The story: Master Potion-maker Kyra is on the run. She’s just tried to kill princess Ariana (who also happens to be her best friend)–but somehow her usually perfect aim failed, and she missed. Now, along with trying to evade the King’s guards, she’s also got to keep a hand on her tracking pig, keep the local witches and criminals from guessing her true powers, and–most annoying of all–try to keep one step ahead of Fred, the handsomest guy (and best cook) she’s met  in a long time. Can she do it? One wrong step would be her last!

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: I thought this was a really fun story, and was sad to find out that author Bridget Zinn died very young, just after it was published. If you like a magical adventure with a bit of romance, this is a great choice!
