Review in 75 Words or Less: Poison Study is beautiful in its simplicity. The world... the characters... the plot... all of it ties together to compliment each other in a way that is ingenious. Yelena is the type of character that only comes around every so often. Brave, smart, courageous... there are too many words that come to mind when thinking of her. And Valek... only one word is needed... yum. Seriously, where can I find a guy that like? Final Verdict: Amazing novel! If you have not read Poison Study yet, you need to fix that immediately. The novel combines outstanding characters that will stay with you long after you finish that last page with a breathtaking world.
