The follow up to Poison Study sees the heroine, Yelena, discovering and developing her magical side. There are great new characters to keep the plot moving and the story is kept fresh with lots more information about Yelena’s background. Even if fantasy is not your usual genre of choice give this a try as it’s a great story.
With an execution order on her head, Yelena has no choice but to escape to Sitia, the land of her birth. With only a year to master her magic - or face death - Yelena must begin her apprenticeship and travels to the Four Towers of the Magician's Keep.
But nothing in Sitia is familiar. Not the family to whom she is a stranger. Not the unsettling new facets of her magic. Nor the brother who resents her return. As she struggles to understand where she belongs and how to control her rare powers, a rogue magician emerges - and Yelena catches his eye.
Suddenly she is embroiled in battle of good against evil. And once again it will be her magical abilities that will either save her life...or be her downfall.
"Be prepared for an exhilarating adventure...as our heroine battles for life against rebel forces and evil wizards." Dark Realms magazine
