Description

ALA Best Book for Teens recipient Chris Wooding delivers "a twisted fairytale fantasy"(Wooding) sprinkled with marvelous characters and seasoned with incredible plot twists. In the rotting stilt-village of Gull just above the foul-smelling Black Swamp, 16-year-old Poison vows to rescue her kidnapped sister from the phaeries. A wise friend reluctantly provides the money, directions, and ancient lore necessary for her journey. Poison soon encounters the treacherous phaerie lord, the terrifying bone witch, and the deceptive spider queen. But when her reality is completely upended, Poison questions whether she can save anyone.

Professional reviews

"In the Realm of Phaerie, no one can be trusted--not creatures like Murk or the white-cowled coachman and certainly not the Spider Lady. Narrator Virginia Leishman takes listeners by the hand and expertly follows the quest of 16-year-old violet-eyed Poison, who leaves the squalid life of the "black marshes" to find her baby sister, who has been stolen from her crib. Two eccentric old men, a bobble-headed girl, and a mysterious cat join Poison to match wits with a variety of creatures. Each character is wonderfully drawn and portrayed, and Leishman nicely captures the subtext of independence and challenge that makes this appeal to teens. Vivid descriptions of colors and atmosphere are Leishman's forte, and POISON is a showcase of her talents. R.F.W. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
