Free read Poison Study ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Free download Poison Study Condannata a morte per omicidio Yelena ha un'unica possibilità diventare l'assaggiatore ufficiale del Comandante Ambrose Ma le torture subite sembrano averle rubato l'anima facendo di lei un simulacro vuot I finished this book on Friday and I took all weekend to decide what I wanted to say in my review Let me start by saying that Poison Study is written in a very elemental fashion If you are a reader who likes flowery descriptive writing this might throw you for a loop initially The story is told inelaborately and there is no hesitation in describing the ugliness of Yelena s situation When I met Yelena she was taken out of her prison cell where she had languished for the better part of a year and was prepared to meet the executioner I can t say I ve read too many books that started this way I was hooked right then and there Instead of seeing Yelena get executed she is taken to the office of the man who will cause a profound change in her life Valek Yelena was offered the opportunity to escape a uick execution She could undertake the training as a food taster which was not without risk and if she survived she would spend her life risking death on a regular basis Typically the life of a food taster is very short But it s a lot longer than instant death Yelena thought things through and decided she d rather take her chances as a food tasterFrom the beginning I was interested in Yelena s story She was a young woman who had ended up in a very dire situation not all of her making but was willing to own up to the life she d taken She never made excuses for her actions although the reasons were valid With the murder she committed she felt as though her soul had been lost And yet some part of her refused to give up This book brings to mind the aphorism that Justice is Blind More and I wonder if justice really should be blind Those who enforce the law make their verdicts on cases based on the evidence presented Yet they don t always consider the underlying reasons why a person commits a crime In the eyes of an omniscient diety this makes perfect sense because that Supreme Being sees all things But humans don t have that all seeing perception Is it fair for a woman to be sentenced to death for trying to protect herself and her loved ones for killing a man who brutally tortured and raped her According to the strict laws of Ixia murder outside of war is considered a capital offense From the moment that Yelena took the life of the son of General Brazell her life was forfeit I believe in second chances I just do I know that we all fall and fail and while I think some crimes are extremely heinous I cannot let go of my belief that everyone deserves the right to make amends I was happy that Valek gave Yelena the opportunity to live Yet Yelena will face trials with her second chance And she is put in a position to save the Commander who she serves as food taster and to prevent Ixia from falling prey to a conspiracy that involves key members of the governmentPoison Study was a very readable fascinating enjoyable adventure I loved seeing Yelena come into her own It was clear that she d always been a strong person and her strength of character and will is what allowed herself to emerge from the fires that had potential to destroy her Instead she was honed by those fires and made stronger I m not very good at political stuff I have my own way of looking at things and it makes my interpretation of political stances parties affiliations and governmental structures very against type I think it was interesting to see the inner workings of the system that the Commander had set up through Yelena s eyes In many ways going from a monarchy to what appeared to be a dictatorship was an improvement However there were many restrictions imposed on the people as a result of that same government Opportunities were open that weren t before The government was set up to encourage fairness and to discourage waste The downside was anytime you have people in a system it s going to be flawed because people are flawed So this system was not perfect Through Yelena s eyes I was able to see this all playing out I started this review by saying that this book was written with a simple use of language I found that this narrative style was a bit deceptive You might think this story is basic on first glance but that s far from the truth There is a lot going on here I liked that Ms Snyder left it up to the reader to interpret the events through her own eyes I like how she slowly reveals aspects of the characters until the fullest picture comes to mind That was the best way to write about a character like Valek When he comes on the scene he doesn t seem that grand He seems like a puppet in the political structure of Ixia But if I had continued to see him that way I would have been missing out on a lot You see Valek is not the puppet He s the puppetmaster He is an extremely intelligent and cunning spymaster a swordsman without eual and a deadly assassin He s so matter of fact and without flare so you don t see him truly unless you look deeper He holds his allegiance to Commander Ambrose very sacredly but that doesn t mean he doesn t always agree with the rules that the Commander has instituted That he cannot see justice done in his own way Through Yelena s eyes we see how the perception of Valek expands to show who and what he really is I fell in love with him as Yelena didI m a romantic at heart and I will always be I loved the burgeoning relationship between Yelena and Valek How they slowly worked their way into each others hearts through proximity and the fact that they saw something in each other that resulted in an irresistible draw to each other It s clear from the beginning through the eyes of others around Yelena and Valek and through Valek s actions that he cherishes Yelena It s a subtle but at the same time pretty obvious thing In my opinion it took a lot of writing skill to convey this to the reader and Ms Snyder did an excellent jobPoison Study was a grand adventure in the style of the classic adventure novels The fight scenes are well written and the danger elements are exciting and involving Being Yelena is a dangerous proposition because Brazell is determined to see her dead for killing his son and continually uses underhanded methods to do it Also because she lives in dangerous times and in an environment fraught with intrigue I liked that Valek saved Yelena several times because it showed the intensity of his regard for her but I also liked that many other times Yelena was able to save herself through her intelligence uick thinking and through her developing skills at self defense Yelena views herself as a small person in the scheme of things but she had an important role in preventing a very ugly conspiracy from coming to fruition She effects change by doing what she feels is right and because of that she gains the respect of those who had previously viewed her as a cold blooded murderess Her actions don t occur in a vacuum and they often result in helpingprotecting others in various ways The fantastic elements are subtle but integral I liked how Yelena s magic was instrinsic to her a part of her that was dormant emerging when she needs it I loved seeing her become a capable and deadly fighter She hates the idea of killing but killing is necessary in the dangerous world she lives in She had to come to realize this or she couldn t love Valek a man who kills for a living and must do it without letting remorse weigh him downPoison Study was a book that I thoroughly enjoyed Like many unexpected favorites it snuck in there on me But

cuore della fanciulla e l'antidoto al veleno mortale che le ha somministrato a tradimen 122917 ON SALE for 199 by Rabid Reads45 starsI ve been wanting to reread this series for like two years No lie It s been 6 or 8 years since the last time I read it and I remembered really liking it but not much else But guess what NEW BOOK So yeah just prior to the release of Shadow Study seemed like an excellent time to get my reread on and guys it was even better than I remembered it That Has NEVER HappenedYelena a self confessed murderer is spared from hanging when the Commander of the military governed nation she lives in needs a new food taster The last one died of poisoning Go figure Valek the head of the Commander s security offers her the position and when she accepts Yelena discovers that he will also be responsible for her training BUT his training methods can best be described as trial by fire I believe he says something like if you can survive this nothing else will accidentally kill you and you won t be a waste of my valuable time and effort just before dosing her with the moste potente poison he has availableNice guy that Valek But Yelena is both stronger and smarter than she appears and she not only survives the poisoning but thrives under Valek s tutelage And if that was all there was well that would be boringBut that s not all Yelena has secrets Like the reason why she killed the only son of her benefactor one of the eight Generals directly under the Commander in rank A General who is distinctly unhappy about her avoiding the noose Yelena is also unsurprisingly world weary BUT Despite her best efforts she s unable to snuff out the fragile flame of hope that burns inside of her Hope for a better life Hope for someone to trust Hope for something as simple yet previously as unattainable as a friend In Poison Study you grow with Yelena as she grows begin to trust as she trusts feel the bitter disappointment of betrayal when she is betrayed and barely dare to allow yourself to hope as something than friendship begins to blossom Don t ask me with whom bc I won t tell you but it is lovelyShe picks up a few allies along the way as well and a pair of soldiers in particular Janco and Ari are simply fantastic Ari adopts the role of protective older brother while Janco fills the prankster brother position exceptionally well and you feel that in your gut too bc Yelena is an orphan And all of this is happening within the unfolding mystery that s detailed uite nicely in the blurb so I won t rehash itOn the surface Poison Study probably looks a lot like every other YA fantasy out there and it admittedly doesn t stray far from the standard and acceptable elements But Snyder has created a world with characters who make you FEEL what they FEEL who you want to triumph and fear for when failure seems imminent I ve never denied being a character driven reader and Poison Study is a marvelous example of the kind of book that really really makes me happy Highly recommended The Complete Excuses Handbook The Definitive Guide to Avoiding Blame and Shirking Responsibility for All Your Own Miserable Failings and Sloppy Mistakes under Valek s
