meilufay’s #CBR4 review #63 Poison Study (Study #1) by Maria V. Snyder
Poison Study is the first book in a fantasy romance series written by Maria Snyder. It’s actually very similar to Master of Crows by Grace Draven. The main character, Yelena, is on death row and is offered a way out, she can become the food taster for the Commander of Ixia, tasting all his food before he does to make sure it’s not poisoned. Of course, there’s more to the story than that. There’s romance and intrigue and adventure. I enjoyed this book, but not enough to carry on with the series.
