What's New? Poison's Kiss by Breeana Shields


I hate snakes, but I seriously don't hate this cover! I just discovered this new book thanks to Roshani Chokshi, is based in Indian folklore and it sounds so amazing! Have you heard about it?
Check it out!

Expected publication: January 10th 2017 by Random House Books for Young Readers 

Marinda has kissed dozens of boys. They all die afterward. It s a miserable life, but being a visha kanya a poison maiden is what she was created to do. Marinda serves the Raja by dispatching his enemies with only her lips as a weapon.

Until now, the men she was ordered to kiss have been strangers, enemies of the kingdom. Then she receives orders to kiss Deven, a boy she knows too well to be convinced he needs to die. She begins to question who she s really working for. And that is a thread that, once pulled, will unravel more than she can afford to lose.

This rich, surprising, and accessible debut is based in Indian folklore and delivers a story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.
