Waiting on Wednesday #52

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by, Breaking the Spine, which spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on! 

Title: Poison
Author: Bridget Zinn
Release Date: March 12th, 2013
Publisher: Disney Hyperion

Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction--which means she's the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom's future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend. But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart...misses. Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king's army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she's not alone. She's armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can't stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her?

After featuring Poison in last week's IMM post, I was shocked to find out that the author had actually passed away last year.  Since acquiring that information (I must have been under a rock), I haven't been able to get Bridget out of my mind.  It makes me incredibly sad that she's no longer around to see her first book published, yet thankful that she was able to leave a large part of herself with us.

What awesome title are you waiting for this Wednesday?

  3. I'm definitely excited about Poison, too. Yes, the author's story just breaks my heart. :(

  6. Thi sounds really interesting. I have to say that the first time I saw that, I thought it was a book based on Snow White and the Huntsman since it looks a lot like the movie poster. Great pick!
