Once, only her own life hung in the balance…

When Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. She 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, dissent is rising. And Valek’s job—and his life—are in danger.

As Yelena tries to uncover her enemies, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked. And now she must find a way to keep not only herself but all that she holds dear alive.

My Thoughts

Maria V Snyder is one of my favourite authors as Poison Study, Magic Study and Fire Study are my favourites of all her books. I was incredibly happy to hear that she would be going back the main characters from those for some more books! The synopsis of Shadow Study sounds amazing so I cannot wait for the release.

What are you waiting for this week?
