Praise for Poison:
A frothy confection of a fairy tale featuring poisoners, princesses, perfumers and pigs, none of whom are exactly what they appear (except maybe the pigs) . Good silly funa refreshing antidote to a genre overflowing with grit and gloom. Kirkus Reviews
Extraordinary. Jennifer L. Holm, New York Times best-selling author
Bridget Zinn's POISON is an absolute charmer of a book, full of adventure and romance and fun. I give it five starswith an extra star for the cutest pig character you will ever meet. Sarah Prineas, author of The Magic Thief series and the Winterling trilogy
