  book cover

New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder wowed readers with Poison Study, the unforgettable story of poison taster Yelena. Now she's back with a new tale of intrigue.

Once, only her own life hung in the balance...

Oddly enough, when Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. But she'd survived to become a vital part of the balance of power between rival countries Ixia and Sitia. Now she uses her magic to keep the peace in both lands—and protect her relationship with Valek.

Suddenly, though, they are beset on all sides by those vying for power through politics and intrigue. Valek's job—and his life—are in danger. As Yelena tries to uncover the scope of these plots, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked. She must keep that a secret—or her enemies will discover just how vulnerable she really is—while searching for who or what is responsible for neutralizing her powers.

Yes, the days of tasting poisons were much simpler. And certainly not as dangerous...


When I was hopping through WoW posts a couple of weeks ago, I was so excited when I came across Shadow Study – with a cover and release date! Yelena and Valek are back! Finally! Oh, and I’m also hoping there will be lots of Ari and Janco :D

I LOVED both Poison and Magic Study, but I wasn’t as keen on the last book, Fire Study. But, I’m still so excited that Yelena and Valek’s story will continue on, and hopefully Shadow Study will be just as amazing as Poison Study. But... February!? *pouts* I've read that this book is set after Spy Glass, which is the third book in the Glass series… and I haven’t read those books yet. Better get started on it ASAP!


What books are you anxiously waiting on this week?

  4. Ari and Janco! I cannot believe I forgot about them! I have to reread the book before this one's release date. You'd probably like the glass books. I don't love them like I love the study books, but they were pretty good too.

    1. I am a little concerned about not enjoying the Glass books as much - I didn't really connect with Opal too much in Fire Study, but we'll see what happens when she has her own book! Thanks for stopping by =)
