    [Poison Study] Free × Maria V. Snyder In my personal opinionthis is what Throne of Glass published seven years after this should have been Poison Study is easily one of the best written and underrated high fantasy young adult series that I’ve come across and I’m so happy that I FINALLY gave this a go as it’s been collecting dust on my TBR for YEARS After a while YA high fantasy tends to become oversaturated with similar storylines but this was SO ORIGINAL and

Poison Study characters Ï 107 review Ý eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Õ Maria V. Snyder Condannata a morte per omicidio Yelena ha un'unica possibilità diventare l'assaggiatore ufficiale del Comandante Ambrose Ma le torture subite sembrano averle rubato l'anima facendo di lei un simulacro vuot. I finished this book on Friday and I took all weekend to decide what I wanted to say in my review Let me start by saying that Poison Study is written in a very elemental fashion If you are a reader who likes flowery descriptive writing this might throw you for a loop initially The story is told inelaborately and there is no hesitation in describing the ugliness of Yelena s situation When I met Yelena she was taken out of her prison cell where she had languished for the better part of a year and was prepared to meet the executioner I can t say I ve read too many books that started this way I was hooked right then and there Instead of seeing Yelena get executed she is taken to the office of the man who will cause a profound change in her life Valek Yelena was offered the opportunity to escape a uick execution She could undertake the training as a food taster which was not without risk and if she survived she would spend her life risking death on a regular basis Typically the life of a food taster is very short But it s a lot longer than instant death Yelena thought things through and decided she d rather take her chances as a food tasterFrom the beginning I was interested in Yelena s story She was a young woman who had ended up in a very dire situation not all of her making but was willing to own up to the life she d taken She never made excuses for her actions although the reasons were valid With the murder she committed she felt as though her soul had been lost And yet some part of her refused to give up This book brings to mind the aphorism that Justice is Blind More and I wonder if justice really should be blind Those who enforce the law make their verdicts on cases based on the evidence presented Yet they don t always consider the underlying reasons why a person commits a crime In the eyes of an omniscient diety this makes perfect sense because that Supreme Being sees all things But humans don t have that all seeing perception Is it fair for a woman to be sentenced to death for trying to protect herself and her loved ones for killing a man who brutally tortured and raped her According to the strict laws of Ixia murder outside of war is considered a capital offense From the moment that Yelena took the life of the son of General Brazell her life was forfeit I believe in second chances I just do I know that we all fall and fail and while I think some crimes are extremely heinous I cannot let go of my belief that everyone deserves the right to make amends I was happy that Valek gave Yelena the opportunity to live Yet Yelena will face trials with her second chance And she is put in a position to save the Commander who she serves as food taster and to prevent Ixia from falling prey to a conspiracy that involves key members of the governmentPoison Study was a very readable fascinating enjoyable adventure I loved seeing Yelena come into her own It was clear that she d always been a strong person and her strength of character and will is what allowed herself to emerge from the fires that had potential to destroy her Instead she was honed by those fires and made stronger I m not very good at political stuff I have my own way of looking at things and it makes my interpretation of political stances parties affiliations and governmental structures very against type I think it was interesting to see the inner workings of the system that the Commander had set up through Yelena s eyes In many ways going from a monarchy to what appeared to be a dictatorship was an improvement However there were many restrictions imposed on the people as a result of that same government Opportunities were open that weren t before The government was set up to encourage fairness and to discourage waste The downside was anytime you have people in a system it s going to be flawed because people are flawed So this system was not perfect Through Yelena s eyes I was able to see this all playing out I started this review by saying that this book was written with a simple use of language I found that this narrative style was a bit deceptive You might think this story is basic on first glance but that s far from the truth There is a lot going on here I liked that Ms Snyder left it up to the reader to interpret the events through her own eyes I like how she slowly reveals aspects of the characters until the fullest picture comes to mind That was the best way to write about a character like Valek When he comes on the scene he doesn t seem that grand He seems like a puppet in the political structure of Ixia But if I had continued to see him that way I would have been missing out on a lot You see Valek is not the puppet He s the puppetmaster He is an extremely intelligent and cunning spymaster a swordsman without eual and a deadly assassin He s so matter of fact and without flare so you don t see him truly unless you look deeper He holds his allegiance to Commander Ambrose very sacredly but that doesn t mean he doesn t always agree with the rules that the Commander has instituted That he cannot see justice done in his own way Through Yelena s eyes we see how the perception of Valek expands to show who and what he really is I fell in love with him as Yelena didI m a romantic at heart and I will always be I loved the burgeoning relationship between Yelena and Valek How they slowly worked their way into each others hearts through proximity and the fact that they saw something in each other that resulted in an irresistible draw to each other It s clear from the beginning through the eyes of others around Yelena and Valek and through Valek s actions that he cherishes Yelena It s a subtle but at the same time pretty obvious thing In my opinion it took a lot of writing skill to convey this to the reader and Ms Snyder did an excellent jobPoison Study was a grand adventure in the style of the classic adventure novels The fight scenes are well written and the danger elements are exciting and involving Being Yelena is a dangerous proposition because Brazell is determined to see her dead for killing his son and continually uses underhanded methods to do it Also because she lives in dangerous times and in an environment fraught with intrigue I liked that Valek saved Yelena several times because it showed the intensity of his regard for her but I also liked that many other times Yelena was able to save herself through her intelligence uick thinking and through her developing skills at self defense Yelena views herself as a small person in the scheme of things but she had an important role in preventing a very ugly conspiracy from coming to fruition She effects change by doing what she feels is right and because of that she gains the respect of those who had previously viewed her as a cold blooded murderess Her actions don t occur in a vacuum and they often result in helpingprotecting others in various ways The fantastic elements are subtle but integral I liked how Yelena s magic was instrinsic to her a part of her that was dormant emerging when she needs it I loved seeing her become a capable and deadly fighter She hates the idea of killing but killing is necessary in the dangerous world she lives in She had to come to realize this or she couldn t love Valek a man who kills for a living and must do it without letting remorse weigh him downPoison Study was a book that I thoroughly enjoyed Like many unexpected favorites it snuck in there on me But when I finished this book I had a big smile on my face

Poison Study is easily one of the best young adult books I have read this year So far the genre has become increasingly disappointing to me and I was beginning to lose faith in novels marketed at older teens What I really don t understand though is why Snyder decided to make Poison Study a young adult book In my opinion even though it was good the book could have been even better if she d allowed for YelenaValek smut and instead marketed the book to a adult audience It s not even as if the subject matter was child friendly torture and rape loving villains aren t exactly what comes to mind when you re writing for a young audience It could have been sexier grittier and just all round better as an adult novelAs a welcome addition the fantasy genre I was also surprised at how much I enjoyed the story Fantasy tends to conjure up unwelcome memories of Tolkien and Pratchett not to mention the elves goblins and dwarves that often feature in the genre Never did it for me I m afraid The only fantasy books that have ever really impressed me are those by JK Rowling and Paul Stewart and they were focused on characters at least resembling humans for the most part as was Poison StudyI have to say that I loved Valek as a character and was pleasantly surprised to see how well the romance between him and Yelena worked It didn t even remotely occur to me at first that he would be the love interest of the novel because he was seemingly selfish violent and cruel And also coldly devoid of any redeeming emotion The way that turned around through the humour that came out in him as the novel progressed to the multiple times he risked himself to help Yelena and yet still didn t make her come across as the damsel in distress was told really well The rest of the novel aside he himself is one of the best parts of any book I ve read latelyWhat I didn t much care for was the drawn out plot with the Criollo it seemed to take too long to get around to something that wasn t particularly interesting but don t get me wrong plenty of other stuff is going on with Yelena overcoming her past trauma and the blooming attraction between her and Valek so that the story never really drags This is usually the part where I say So I will definitely be reading the next book in the series but I actually think I m going to leave Magic Study and Fire Study after acuiring advice from Tatiana s review and strangely a small lilac haired old woman at the libraryEDIT Tatiana has informed me that it wasn t Snyder s idea but her publishers my apologies Snyder Ascending Into Euphoria il cuore della fanciulla e l'antidoto al veleno mortale che le ha somministrato a tradimen.
