POISON by Chris Wooding
Poison has always been a wilful, contrary girl, prone to being argumentative and stubborn. So when she discovers that her younger sister has been snatched by the phaeries, she decides to seek out the Phaerie Lord herself to get her back. But
finding him is not easy, and he’s a little preoccupied when she does.
Poison has stepped into a murderous world of intrigue, where the Lords of the Realms, a sinister pantheon of demi-gods, conspire and plot to overthrow the Hierophant-the most powerful lord of all. For the Hierophant is writing again, and his pen will decide their fates…With only her wits and her friends to aid her, Poison must survive the lethal attentions of the Phaerie Lord, rescue her sister and thwart a plot that could mean the end of her people. What awaits her is beyond anything she can imagine…
I actually read POISON when I was in secondary school, but I can’t really remember what happens – only that I really enjoyed it. I must find time to revisit it again soon.
