BOOK REVIEW: A Gift of Poison by Kate Avery Ellison


BLURB:


As the orphaned niece of a cruel lord, Briand is the scapegoat of the castle. She has few friends and even fewer options, and every day is a struggle to stay ahead of trouble caused by malicious guards and irritable castle servants.

Briand is set to be banished to the wildlands, a death sentence, when she accidentally unlocks a hidden power and involves herself in a rebel plot and her life abruptly changes.

Imprisoned in the company of a band of rebels, Briand must do what seems impossible: call up sleeping dragons in the north. But the fearsome Prince’s assassins called Seekers are looking for her, Briand doesn’t know if she can trust the mysterious, enigmatic rebel leader Kael, and there might be a traitor in the rebels’ midst.


REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 12 years, 11 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book was truly adventurous! 

My favorite character is Briand because she is daring, smart and brave. She runs away from her whole life to take on an army. 

My favorite part is when she is chased in the beginning because she keeps her wits about her even though she gets caught. 

I recommend this book for anyone who likes magic, war and beautiful adventures. 

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 12 and up.
