Book for February


This month we will be reading Poison Study by Maria Snyder. Here is a little synopsis from Amazon: 


"Shivers, obsession, sleepless nights—these are the results not of one of the milder poisons that novice food-taster Yelena must learn during her harrowing job training. Through a stroke of luck, Yelena escapes execution in exchange for tasting the food of the Commander, ruler of Ixia. Though confined to a dank prison cell and doomed to a painful death, Yelena slowly blooms again, caught up in castle politics. But some people are too impatient to wait for poison to finish off Yelena. With the help of Valek, her steely-nerved, cool-eyed boss and the Commander's head of security, she soon discovers that she has a starring role to play in Ixia's future—a role that could lead to her being put to death as a budding magician even if she hits each cue perfectly."

We will be meeting on Thursday, February 26th at 7pm. This book can be found at the library or any book store. Happy reading!!

Liz, I tried to reserve it but they didn't have any. When you're done can I borrow it. I'll even return it to the library for you if you would like.
