This month I picked Poison's Kiss by Breeana Shields!
Genre: YA Fantasy
Publisher: Random House Books for Young Readers
Expected Publication Date: January 10, 2017
A teenage assassin kills with a single kiss until she is ordered to kill the one boy she loves. This commercial YA fantasy is romantic and addictive—like a poison kiss—and will thrill fans of Sarah J. Maas and Victoria Aveyard.
Marinda has kissed dozens of boys. They all die afterward. It's a miserable life, but being a visha kanya—a poison maiden—is what she was created to do. Marinda serves the Raja by dispatching his enemies with only her lips as a weapon.
Until now, the men she was ordered to kiss have been strangers, enemies of the kingdom. Then she receives orders to kiss Deven, a boy she knows too well to be convinced he needs to die. She begins to question who she's really working for. And that is a thread that, once pulled, will unravel more than she can afford to lose.
This rich, surprising, and accessible debut is based in Indian folklore and delivers a story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
I just love this whole premise! I'm a sucker for YA fantasy; it has become my favorite genre. I like the idea that this girl can kill anyone she kills. It is bound to make the romance really interesting! Plus, I absolutely love political intrigue and this seems to have a chockful! I'm remaining hopeful about this one. The reviews from those who got that ARC are all really positive, so I have pretty high expectations.
Are you looking forward to Poison's Kiss?
Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!
