Was glad that Jason showed up at the end for the challenge as it was his rightful place and put the priorities back in place for the pairs nicely.

Poison Tree

I found the emphasize on the brutality of the Mistari interesting, especially as they were the mediating clan for the Serpiente and Avian war, being the “neutral territory. And those side characters I mentioned before still seemed a little underdeveloped.

Atwater-Rhodes stated that Poison Tree was originally titled Tiger Risethat she had initially filmed it as a movie with her friends, and that the book took her a long time to write. One day, tech support is needed because of a computer glitch that occurs and a young man named Ben arrives to fix the problem.

I figured that Poison Tree was a good place to start since it seems to reference a lot of the same lore that can be found in her other books. She and Jason a vamp saved each other six years ago and have been in love ever since.

Sarik is becoming the runner of Haven 4, yet she still lives in terrible fear of the past – waiting on pins and needles atwqter-rhodes karma her father to come back and destroy her life.

Will becoming a member of SingleEarth allow her to finally put her past behind her? Hardcoverpages. It stopped the pacing of plot and jarred me out of the reading experience. The book starts off with a loison that introduces our main characters all at once – then they are separated for half the book until reuniting and not always recognizing one another.


The central story revolves around Sarik, the African-Asian tiger shifter, running away from an abusive home, then finding her way back home to stand up for herself. No money or favors were exchanged for this review. Starting over again with brand new characters might not have been a ameloa move.

There’s more beneath the surface of Poison Tree so hopefully there will be a companion novel to explore the hidden parts of this world. And both Sarik and Alysia must grapple with the impactand determine what price must be paid. Now on to the next book But the next book in the Den of Shadows series does not carry on with these characters. Everyone also seems disturbingly okay with underage mercenaries I would have expected SingleEarth and Sarik to have some not-so-positive things to say on that, really.

Then someone attempst to harm Alysia and she is forced back into the harsh world of pkison Bruja. Kenyon rated it liked it Shelves: Zmelia the author who brought two fantastic YA series to the fantasy world, this new tale is filled with the same creatures who have become beloved by millions.

Alysia is a former mercenary for the Bruja guilds. All in all it was a weak story made weaker by the inability for the reader to root for a clear hero or heroine. In trying to tell overly complicated stories for four separate characters, Atwater-Rhodes succeeded in making them all two-dimensional and superficial. This is classified as a YA book, although most of the action occurs when the characters are in their early twenties.
