Summary

"A delicious high-stakes adventure." (People magazine)

Perfect for fans of Victoria Aveyard and Holly Black, The Kinder Poison is an enthralling fantasy adventure that follows a teenage girl chosen to be the human sacrifice in a deadly game between three heirs who will do anything for the crown.

Zahru has long dreamed of leaving the kingdom of Orkena and having the kinds of adventures she's only ever heard about in stories. But as a lowly Whisperer, her power to commune with animals means that her place is serving in the royal stables until the day her magic runs dry.

All that changes when the ailing ruler invokes the Crossing. A death-defying race across the desert, in which the first of his heirs to finish - and take the life of a human sacrifice at the journey's end - will ascend to the throne. With all of the kingdom abuzz, Zahru leaps at the chance to change her fate if just for a night by sneaking into the palace for a taste of the revelry. But the minor indiscretion turns into a deadly mistake when she gets caught up in a feud between the heirs and is forced to become the Crossing's human sacrifice.

Now Zahru's only hope for survival hinges on the impossible: somehow figuring out how to overcome the most dangerous people in the world.

One of my all time favorites


I feel so lucky to have found this book. It is nonstop action from start to finish and
the characters are written beautifully complex and feel so real.

Jesse Vilinsky is a phenomenal narrator who really brings the story to life.

I am someone who is very sensitive and it can often feel overwhelming and even like a weakness, but Zahru was the main character that I really needed.

This book is very underrated and I would recommend it on all regards. :)

Wow! Different!

Great story and a little different from the usual books in this genre. I definitely think a little more background and world building would have been helpful. I’m going straight into book 2

Great read!

I highly recommend this book. This book has it all adventure, action, and even a little romance. This story has a strong storyline and great characters that you can relate to her. The main character is a strong heroin who doesn’t play damsel in distress the entire book. Narrator also does a really good job.
