This is a weekly meme, hosted at Breaking the Spine, spotlighting upcoming releases that we’re anticipating.

Title: Poison
Author: Bridget Zinn
Release Date: March 12th, 2013
Publisher: Disney Hyperion
Pages: 288
Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.

But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses.

Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her?

Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she’s certainly no damsel-in-distress—she’s the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon. Goodreads

I love a good high fantasy, and this one’s stand alone! I like the idea of not having to add another series to my list. Anyway, this sounds like a strong female character which I always enjoy. One of my most anticipated 2013 debuts.

    • I know right??? I’m being swamped with series and lately I find myself more and more looking for stand alones. But there’s quite a few 2013 stand alone releases that I think sound awesome! It’s almost like the industry knows we’re getting tired of it as well, haha.

    • Geez, what are you waiting for?? Seriously get on that. I wish I had an ARC. I’ll be excited to hear your thoughts though!

    • Haha, you really are all about the fairytales huh? But yeah, I can imagine this one would fall under the same kind of style. I’m excited!!
