Publisher's Summary

A Chronicles of Ixia Novel featuring behind-the-scenes notes from the author, exclusive to the audio edition

Choose: a quick death…or slow poison…

Locked deep in the palace dungeon for killing her abuser, Yelena knows she’ll never be free again. The laws in Ixia are strict, and murderers must be executed, no matter the reason. But just as she’s resigned herself to her fate, she’s offered an extraordinary reprieve.

As the food taster, Yelena will eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace—and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia. To make matters worse, the chief of security deliberately feeds her Butterfly’s Dust, and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonizing death from the poison.

As Yelena tries to escape her new dilemma, disasters continue to mount. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and Yelena develops magical powers she can’t control. Her life is threatened again, and in order to survive, she must unravel the secrets behind the past she’s been running from.

One of my favourites

I love this story and end up rereading it every couple of years. Lots of great characters and a fantastic intelligent heroine. A huge fan of Maria V Snyders writing style.
Narration was excellent.
