Poison by Bridget Zinn, 288 pages, read by Angie, on 03/02/2013

Kyra is on the run. She tried to assassinate the princess and failed. Kyra is a master of potions and poisons. She had a thriving business with two other potion masters and was best friends with the princess. Then she had a vision of the land dying because of the princess and knew she had to be stopped. Only Kyra failed and now she has to find the princess and make sure she doesn’t destroy their home. She enlists the help of a notorious criminal who gives her a tracking pig. With Rosie’s (the pig) help Kyra must find the princess. Along the way she comes across Fred and his dog Langley and can’t seem to get away from them.

This was a fun, fast read. I love Kyra as a character; she is strong, smart and brave and she is a little stubborn. She is on a mission and nothing is going to stop her. I really enjoyed the romance with Fred. It wasn’t the central plot of the book, but it was nice and fun and they are really cute. I thought the mystery plot with the princess and the criminal Arlo was a good one and intriguing. I also loved the twist of Kyra’s background; I definitely didn’t see that one coming.
