Overview

Choose: A quick death or slow poison... On the eve of her execution for murder, Yelena Zaltana is offered an incredible reprieve - on the condition that she becomes the food taster for the military leader of Ixia, Commander Ambrose. Avoiding poison is the least of her troubles, however General Brazell, father of the man she killed, has vowed bloody revenge; she's beginning to have feelings for her captor, Valek; and someone is plotting the downfall of the current regime. In a desperate race against time, Yelena must learn to control the growing magical talent within her and master the demons of her past. The Commander's life, the future of Ixia and all those she loves depend on it.

Mischa writes: Yelena has been given a choice. About to be executed for murder she is given the opportunity to live. But there's a catch...She has to take on the risky job of being the Commander of Ixia's food taster. <br />While studying poisons and dealing with her unyielding boss - Ixia's chief of security Valek - she finds that there are even worse challenges to face. Like the fact that the man she murdered still haunts her and now his loyal followers have found her and want to see her dead. And the fact that Valek has fed her Butterfly Dust, a slow effecting poison, to prevent her escape; if she doesn't have the antidote everyday, she will die. And what's the secret reason Yelena was really given the chance to live? And why does Valek always seem to come to her rescue whether it be from deadly poisons or from her armed enemies? <br />However, when Iris, a woman who has travelled all the way from the Illiais Jungle to see Yelena, shows up at the Commander's castle more questions begin to arise, only this time about her mysterious past. <br />There was never a dull moment in this thrilling magical tale. I have never fallen in love with a set of characters so deeply amazing before, and I sometimes had to remind myself that I didn't live in the beautiful snow of Ixia or the mysterious Illiais Jungle where Yelena travels on her courageous journeys.
