Poison by Bridget Zinn

Sixteen-year-old potions master Kyra is on the run after unsuccessfully trying to kill her best friend, the princess, and future ruler of the Kingdom of Mohr.

Kyra isn't an evil person, her potions are mostly used for putting people to sleep or glamours, but she must protect her kingdom from the dark future she has seen for it, and the only way to do that is to kill the princess this time around.

This is a fun straight adventure fantasy full of witches, goblins, potions and more.  Also, there is an adorable pig named Rosie.  I was really enchanted by this story, and read through it quickly.  The end did seem a bit rushed, and I thought for awhile that this might be the start of a series, or that there might be a follow-up, but the book can stand on its own.

While researching this review saw that the author of this novel has died.  This is her debut novel, and I am sorry that she will not be writing anymore.  I think the world could be expanded upon, and I would love to visit the characters from this book again.

-This review is based on an ARC.  I received no compensation or awesome swag for reviewing this book.
