Poison Review

Title: Poison

Author: Bridget Zinn

Pages: 276

Rating: 4.5/5

The book Poison was written by Bridget Zinn who died shortly after the book was published. It is a great book that is up there on my list of must reads.
Kara is a brilliant potioner. Her life has been pretty normal till the day she tries to kill her best friend, the princess. As she tries to avoid being captured she has to turn to an unexpected ally. Can he be trusted though? She is forced to travel with a piglet (Rosie) who can lead her to the princess, who has disappeared. On her hunt for her friend she meets up with a handsome man and his dog.
Fred is a fun-loving guy who is quick to make a joke. He is the kind of guy who would do anything to make his friends laugh. He meets Kara quite by accident and continues to stick with her as they travel.
As secrets are discovered and monsters are uncovered Kara and Fred must fight to prevent the death of the kingdom. Who can they trust? What's Fred hiding? Does Kara have a secret too?
Don't worry I'm not telling you anything that will ruin the book. I will say it does seem to be written for kids but it is good I promise! The only bad thing about it is that since the author is dead she won't be able to write another book which is sad since she left the ending open for another one.
I can tell you that there is a surprise towards the end! Some might guess it but I didn't! ME! I usually come up with all kinds of twists! I NEVER suspected!
Everyone that loves adventure must read! It is different! I've never read anything like this before! Read this book!

About The Author

Bridget grew up in Wisconsin. She went to the county fair where she met the love of her life, Barrett Dowell. They got married right before she went in for exploratory surgery which revealed she had colon cancer. They christened that summer the "summer of love" and the two celebrated with several more weddings. Bridget continued to read and write until the day she died. Her last tweet was "Sunshine and a brand new book. Perfect."
Bridget wanted to make people laugh and hoped readers would enjoy spending time with the characters she created. As a librarian/writer she loved books with strong young women with aspirations. She also felt teens needed more humorous reads. She really wanted to write a book with pockets of warmth and happiness and hoped that her readers' copies would show the watermarks of many bath time reads.
When not writing young adult masterpieces or working on world domination, I spend my time cooking, traveling, making films and taking my ball gown out for trips around town.
My current secret lair resides somewhere in (shhh...) Portland, OR where I plot daring adventures with my husband and two cats.
