Zahru has long dreamed of leaving the kingdom of Orkena and having the kinds of adventures she’s only ever heard about in stories. But as a lowly Whisperer, her power to commune with animals means that her place is serving in the royal stables until the day her magic runs dry.
All that changes when the ailing ruler invokes the Crossing: a death-defying race across the desert, in which the first of his heirs to finish—and take the life of a human sacrifice at the journey’s end—will ascend to the throne and be granted unparalleled abilities.
With all of the kingdom abuzz, Zahru leaps at the chance to change her fate if just for a night by sneaking into the palace for a taste of the revelry. But the minor indiscretion turns into a deadly mistake when she gets caught up in a feud between the heirs and is forced to become the Crossing’s human sacrifice. Zahru is left with only one hope for survival: somehow figuring out how to overcome the most dangerous people in the world.
Zahru always wanted to see the world, but she gets caught up in a deadly race and sibling rivalry.
Zahru has the power to talk to animals. She is known as a whisper and help her father out with the animals. She longs for a life outside the vet life. One night her and her best friend sneaks in to see the crossing. A race with royal siblings complete for the throne. A mistaken identity leads Zahru onto the wrong path. She become a human sacrifice and caught up in a huge sibling rivalry.
This book was such a magical read. I really did love it. The storyline was breathe taking. The siblings are ruthless, and you have no clue who to trust. Zahru in the book is to kind to be caught up in between the fighting and saving her life. She must use her wits to save her life and maybe get through to the sibling on how they should rule.
Kinder Poison is pretty much action pack, ruthless and not sure who can trust. This book recently came out not to long ago. Looking for a new fantasy series, then your in for a treat.
