Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Family betrayal, a power-mad serial killer and a potential diplomatic crisis threaten the independent-minded heroine of Snyder's fine sequel to Poison Study (2005). With the overthrow of the royal family of Ixia, 20-year-old Yelena Zaltana, who was kidnapped as a child by the evil magician Mogkan, is now free to return home to Sitia. Her reunion with the family she hasn't seen in 14 years palls when her brother spreads rumors she's actually a spy from Ixia. At the Magician's Citadel, where Yelena enrolls to hone her prodigious magical talents, her powers raise concern that she might be a rare, powerful Soulfinder. Then a string of ugly murders reveals the presence of a rogue magician in the area. As Yelena joins the hunt for the killer, complications grow with the arrival of a diplomatic mission from Ixia-including her lover, Valek, a notorious spy and assassin, sure to be executed if anyone sees through his disguise. Snyder's lively, charming mix of romance and fantasy is sure to gain her new fans. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

No longer an indentured poison taster to her late, hated master, Yelena is now ready to start her training in her newly discovered magical powers. Reunited with her brother, she finds to her chagrin that he despises her bloody past and, in fact, seems to wish her dead. This sequel to Poison Study continues the tale of a young woman condemned to death unless she can learn to control her power. Suitable for large fantasy collections and libraries where paranormal romances and this author are popular. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
