You know your life is bad when you miss your days as a poison taster . . . With her greatest enemy dead, and on her way to be reunited with the family she'd been stolen from long ago, Yelena should be pleased. But though she has gained her freedom, she can't help feeling isolated in Sitia. Her Ixian background has changed her in many ways -- and her newfound friends and relatives don't think it's for the better . . . Despite the turmoil, she's eager to start her magic training -- especially as she's been given one year to harness her power or be put to death. But her plans take a radical turn when she becomes involved with a plot to reclaim Ixia's throne for a lost prince -- and gets entangled in powerful rivalries with her fellow magicians. If that wasn't bad enough, it appears her brother would love to see her dead. Luckily, Yelena has some old friends to help her with all her new enemies . . .… (more)

3.5 stars.

This magic system is so cool and I can't wait to find out even more! I'm sometimes struggling to follow why Yelena throws herself into danger the way she does (and I gotta admit it's not my favorite plot type) but it's still overall very enjoyable. The character motivations and politics are so interesting, too. ( )
