WoW: A Little Taste of Poison

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


Let's take a moment to stare in awe at the beautiful cover.

The city of Tarreton is powered by magic, from simple tablets that light lamps to advanced Sagery that can murder a man from afar. Isaveth has a talent for spell-making, but as a girl from a poor neighborhood she never dreamed she could study at the most exclusive magical school in the city. So when she’s offered a chance to attend, she eagerly accepts.

The school is wonderful, but old and new enemies confront Isaveth at every turn, and she begins to suspect her scholarship might be more a trap than a gift. Even her secret meetings with Esmond, her best friend and partner in crime-solving, prove risky—especially once he hatches a plan to sneak her into the biggest society event of the season. It’s their last chance to catch the corrupt politician who once framed her father for murder. How can Isaveth refuse?


A Little Taste of Poison is the sequel to my favorite MG read of last year, A Pocket Full of Murder. Mystery, magic, politics, and romance combine to make this series something special and I can't wait for the release of the second book on September 27, 2016.

    1. R.J. has lucked out with the cover designs for this series! If you like mystery, you should like this. (And if you've read Dorothy Sayers, these books will be an extra treat.)
