Title: Shadow Study (Soulfinders #1)
Author: Maria V. Snyder
Publisher: Mira (Harlequin)
Release Date: February 24, 2015
Once, only her own life hung in the balance.
Oddly enough, when Yelena was a poison taster, her life was simpler. But she'd survived to become a vital part of the balance of power between rival countries Ixia and Sitia. Now she uses her magic to keep the peace in both lands and protect her relationship with Valek.
Suddenly, though, they are beset on all sides by those vying for power through politics and intrigue. Valek's job - and his life - are in danger. As Yelena tries to uncover the scope of these plots, she faces a new challenge: her magic is blocked. She must keep that a secret - or her enemies will discover just how vulnerable she really is - while searching for who or what is responsible for neutralizing her powers.
Yes, the days of tasting poisons were much simpler. And certainly not as dangerous
Poison Study is one of my all-time favorite fantasy books. The trilogy kind of went a little crazy with book three, but I have high hopes for this new series. Plus, I get more Yelena and Valek, one of my all-time favorite couples! YES!! It's not available for pre-order on Audible yet, but I'm hoping it will be available on release day.
