 Red Gray Goodreads Redcropped - backwards 2
Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction--which means she's the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom's future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend. But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart...misses. Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king's army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she's not alone. She's armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can't stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her? 

Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she's certainly no damsel-in-distress--she's the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.

Potions master?! It's like if Snape was a 16-year-old girl. YES!! I cannot wait for this one!

  1. Love that cover and I am LOVING the sound of this one. Very Graceling or Throne of Glass sounding and I loved those, so I must add this one to my TBR. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Haha! This is too funny. I was just about to pick Poison for my WoW today and then at the last minute I switched to Altered. I love Poison's synopsis - so intriguing. Although I love it I think the cover is very similar to the Snow White and the Huntsmen poster which makes me slightly like it less.

  5. Sounds good! The cover reminds me of the Snow White and the Huntsman poster though...it's basically a mirror image of it (weird!). Great pick :)

  7. Sounds interesting. Great pick, I'll have to check it out. I probably wouldn't have pick it out at the book store, as it really look like Snow White and the Huntsman, but now that I know what it is about, I'll have to check it out.
