    Poison is an adorable novel with a lot of heart and packed full

    Poison is an adorable novel with a lot of heart and packed full of action.  Did I mention there is a cute little pig too?  I love it!
    I can appreciate Rosie, our sweet piglet, because I used to have a baby pig when I was younger.  And yes they are very smart animals.  Of course, mine couldn't find people but it did have some other traits.    So yes I was definitely sold on Rosie.  
    Poison reminds me of a fairy tale-yes, I know Kyra is a poison expert and trained killer-but besides those points, everything has the makings of it being a great fairy tale.   I, for one, enjoy the female heroine to be tough, smart, and likable.  
    Poison is simply a fun book to read, whether you be eight years old or thirty something or another (hehehehe).  The plot line isn't very heavy but it has the feel of a good vs. evil outline, with the hero trying to save the kingdom from impending doom.  
    The characters aren't so full of angst, but they do have this "coming to terms" with their past, if you will, that helps us enjoy the fact that they are not very complex.  But remember it is a children's fiction, so I don't fault it for the lack of complexity.  
    But don't think this book is a bore; it is quite the opposite.  It has this huge twist that definitely made me say out loud, " What the fudge sundae?"  
    I really truly loved this story.  It was such a fun read that went by very fast.  Too fast. 
    Ms. Zinn, Rest in Peace, has created a wonderful story that will live forever delighting children and grown ups, alike with the love and friendship it offers in its pages.  
    Five hearts indeed.

    Refreshling Sweet

    I am in love with this charming little book. It's fantasy, romance, comedy and mystery all in one. I would've finished it all in one sitting if the other duties of life hadn't needed to butt in from time to time. If you are in need of a light and fun fantasy read, you need to own this book.

    First and Foremost I want to take a minute to honor the author that wrote this book and passed away before it was released. Your memory will live on!



    This book was VERY HARD for me to rate and review! While it was a very adorable read and had very cute parts in it, it was a big let down. The reason I say that is because I thought it was going to be a dark twist type of fairytale. But it wasn't, it was actually the totally opposite. While that's okay, I probably would of read it anyway. But it was a disappointment when I started to read it and it became more of a lighthearted, sweet fairytale mix! Not what I was expecting!


    Okay, Now that being said, after I got over the fact that it was not the book I thought it was, I decided to read it anyway because I bought the book and I wanted to honor the author, plus it wasn't a bad start to a book!



    This book was an enjoyable light read. Very Cute and age appropriate for kids probably over 12. It had fun parts that made the story come alive on different levels then I'm use to! And one of those parts was when a cute little pig named Rosie came into the picture. She was a tracker pig...lol! Yeah, you heard it right! You put a basket around Rosie's neck, with an item of the person your trying to find and she'll lead you right to them! Such a cute little piggy.


    Okay, Here's the Plot:


    A potioner named Kyra or Kitty as they call her is on the mission to save their kingdom. She seen what the future holds if not alerted, but the bad part about it is that she has to be the one to change the future! But what Kara has to do is far more then she would of ever of imagined. She has to kill the princess to stop her vision from coming true! But that's not the worst part of it. The worst part of it is that the Princess she has to kill isn't just any princess, she's her best friend the Princess and soon to be queen of their kingdom!


    How can Kara kill her best friend, really she's her only friend! But if she doesn't their kingdom will turn evil! How can Kara do nothing when she knows it is her that must stop the princess and save the kingdom from evil taking it over! She can't! So that's when Kara's journey starts!




    When the book starts off it's after she tried to kill the princess and failed! She is a trained potioner and NEVER misses her poison darts from their targets! But she misses for the first time ever! And now she's a fugitive on the run from the Queens guards, while also searching for the princess again to get the next poison dart right! She meets a very interesting man on her journeys that just keeps popping up everywhere Kara goes. Who is he and what does he want??? And will Kara be able to stop the princess in time to save their kingdom or will the princess evade Kara and succeed in destroying the kingdom??? Well if you want those answers and more then you'll have to read and find out!



    This was a very different type of book then I'm use to, but still very enjoyable. If you like sweet, cute fairytales then this is for you! Overall, I finally decided that I would give this book a 4 stars rating!

    One of my favorites

    It has beautiful charecters, plot, and humor. You just have to read it! Altogether close to perfect.

    Quirky and Delightful! 
    This is a bitter sweet review because my boys and I desperately want more books by Bridget Zinn and it hurts my heart to know we can't have them. POISON was a delight--so different than everything else on the shelves--from it's cover, to it's plot, all the way down to it's delightfully quirky cast of characters. There are a million heartfelt reasons why you should buy and read this book, but ultimately you shouldn't miss it, because it's just that good. Thank you, Bridget. <3
