“Poison” By Chris Wooding

Poison is a two hundred seventy-three page novel by Chris Wooding, a highly acclaimed, award-winning author who, in my opinion, did a superb  job with this novel!

This novel’s protagonist, Poison, is a sarcastic, stubborn, but mostly determined, sixteen year old of a gloomy place called the Black Marshes in which the citizens who hide there waste away and never venture into more of their realm, the Realm of Man, fearing that the dreaded phaeries, who invaded their realm centuries before, would find and kill them.  The only one courageous and adventurous enough to embark on a journey of a lifetime through the Black Marshes, into several realms, and who ultimately gains longlasting friends along the way is Poison, herself, when the Phaery Lord kidnaps her 2 year old sister.

I like the book because it is extremely imaginative and unique; there are plot twists every step of the way and the different Realms and their Lords are highly believable despite their incredibility.  This is a must read!
