4.75 stars (allllmost perfect!)

There is a real benefit to reading the books later in a series, besides having more information at the reader's disposal. For the most part, each of these books are tied together by world only, the lands of each book separated by country, culture, and geography. Each book has a whole new set of characters. With these later books that means that the newly restored gods from previous books can make a timely reappearance. The best...more
I've been greatly enjoying this Lost Gods series and was looking forward to reading this one. At the end of the last book, we had been told that the Faerie Queen of Verde was possibly the one who supplied the poison to kill the god of death, so that immediately gives the reader a clue that all is not well in Verde. At the end of book 2, Prince Ailill, who was on a quest to retrieve precious objects for the Queen, had been poisoned and returned to Verde to recover. This book picks up almost a yea...more
I am going to call this one and say this series is turning out to be my fave this year. There is so much to love about the Lost Gods; I believe it should be on everyone's radar (if you love a good fantasy series). Though, Poison isn’t a fave of mine it’s still an excellent read, which should tell you a lot about the other books that came before this one.

Poison brings the return of Aillill who we first met in Treasure, and then in book two, Burning Bright where he was poisoned (tada) while on a m...more

See that title? "Poison". Well, this book is just that. Poison. That will burn at your soul and heart, make you want to cry and laugh, and will take away all the hours of sleep you should have gotten but didn't because it is an addictive poison at that. Read at your own risk.
Ailill and Ivan are my new favorite couple in this series! I'd been looking forward to reading the rest of their story ever since book 2, and I love how it turned out. I adored how they didn't betray their tough-guy-ness that had been built up so fantastically well in book 2 and suddenly go all mushy in this one. And yet, their scenes--especially near the end--are some of the most romantic in the series.

The other couple in this book, however, frustrated me. Noire was whiny to the point I wanted...more

Nine Gods ruled the world in peace until betrayal caused their destruction. Now the world is slowly dying, and the only way for it to survive is to restore the Lost Gods to their former glory. The country of Verde is ruled by three of the Lost Gods, the Faerie Queen Etain, the Pegasus Freddie, and the Unicorn Gael. Slain nine centuries earlier, they must die every 100 years only to relive their lives once again until the cycle can be broken. Each time they die, Verde dies a little more...more
At first I had some difficulties with this book because it has an element I really don't like in my M/M books and that is M/F (or in this case M/F/F). I just prefer my M/M books being M/M. But after reading further I realised the neccessity of this constellation so it was ok (and luckily there was no sex-scene). It took me not too long to suspect the culprit of the poisonings (yay, me! ^^) and as far as the storyline is concerned this book was really awesome.
It would have been 5 stars if not for...more

Megan's ability to interconnect the lands in this series by their reactions to their Lost Gods amazes me, because they're all so very different. Their strategies concerning their gods are so very different from each other, that it's fascinating watching to see how each dilemma will be resolved.
This is the fourth book in the series, and I've pre-ordered the fifth, as it's not possible to stop reading at this point.
Excellent series that everyone who like m/m stories, especially fantasy, should rea...more
this I think was my favorite of the series so far.
Aillil and Ivan are my favorite couple in this series!
