Perilous, dark and thrilling

Review

"Poison" by Chris Wooding is a twisted fairy tale fantasy about one girl's journey to reclaim her stolen baby sister, who has been kidnapped by the Phaeries.

To find and rescue her sister, the girl, named Poison, must enter a perilous world and speak with the Phaerie King. In this world, dangerous demigods scheme to overthrow each other, and someone plots to annihilate the human race altogether. Poison tries to stop that plan.

"Poison" is rather difficult to describe without giving too much of it away, but it is a fantastic book full of deception and suspense. It has an incredibly interesting plot, which makes the book hard to put down, and it kept me on my toes the whole time. Also, the dialogue in this story is great.

I definitely recommend "Poison" to anyone who likes great fantasy books. Chris Wooding has written numerous books, some which, including this one, are favorites of mine.
