Sep 16, Amy rated it it was amazing Shelves: On one side would be the first half, which built a nice foundation.
But alas, it just seems like this read wasn’t for me.
While parts of the story lost me, the end really pulled it all together. GothicHorrorTeenVampire. She arrives at Haven 4 with a price on her head, on the run and doing her best to start a new life. There was a point about two-thirds of the way through that I took a breather because I was so frustrated that I had a lot of unanswered questions.
I can’t even be sure if there was romance in it.
I would have liked a little more about the backgrounds of the four main characters and the guilds. In my honest opinion it’s not an improvement. From 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.
That is both a strength and a downfall for this. Also, the title is never made clear as the words: My non-writing hobbies are eclectic, and cover everything from rather domestic pastimes like cross-stitch and cooking to aquarium keeping, playing piano, gardening, carpentry, Harley-Davidsons, driving, and arguing- there are few things I enjoy more than a good debate with someone who knows how to argue, which might have something to do with a best friend who works in politics.
I love music, and I love to sing, and though I never had the courage or the talent to participate in any of the high school plays as a performer, I en I grew up in Concord, Massachusetts, where I matriculated through the public Concord-Carlisle school district from kindergarten until my graduation in Views Read Edit View history.

This book suffers from faux action girl syndrome, flat characters, lack of closure to character arcs and relationships, and plot twists that depend on view spoiler [omitting important details from characters’ introspection, which felt like an atwater-rhoses cheat hide spoiler ]. Most of the main characters ameoia introduced in the prologue and then their stories split before reuniting halfway through the book.
Next time she wants to write this complex of a story she should stretch it out into a 3 book trilogy. Aug 30, Marcey rated it liked it. Sarik’s vampire boyfriend Jason, the newest SingleEarth mediator Alysia, and Frost guild leader Christian, ties the story together but leaves it seemingly incomplete overall.
The rich stew of the author’s creations—SingleEarth, vampires, shapeshifters, Tristes, the Bruja Guilds—are at full boil here in the story of two ish young women trying to out run their very different pasts, and figure out where they fit in and who they might become. The story is told from various character POV’s with intertwining lives and common goals. This one just kinda happened and fizzled.
Once you start reading one of her books you form ties with the characters, be it bad or great. The best part of Poison Tree was absolutely by far the plot.
I liked the organization she created, called Ameoia Earth. Why were they let go in the prologue? The same goes for Jason and Christian, both men are likeable and they both have their histories mentioned but nothing is really explained in detail.
The world from what I saw of it was interesting, but there was too much going on at once.
