Poison Study, by Maria V. Snyder

Genre: Fantasy
Spoiler free description: Yelena is given a choice - become a food taster/poison detector for the Commander, or be hung. She chooses to become a poison taster and the adventure begins. It's got a dark tone to it. Intrigue and mystery. And as the story moves forward you learn more and more about Yelena's past and her trainer, Valek.
The best: Great story! A real page turner to see what twist will happen next.
The worst: Somewhat open ended. The "romance" line didn't have the tension I love.
Grade B
