Another great read, the second in the Dawn's End series. This time following Nicole's daughter into the fantasy world.

There is adventure and magic, love, loss and betrayal, where finely detailed characters battle for their futures. There are also lessons to be learned such as how to deal with grief and anger and the importance of forgiveness.

I don't give spoilers so I cannot say too much but for those who enjoy fantasy, this continuing tale is for you.

‘Poisoned’ is a YA fantasy featuring an independent, athletic 16-year-old girl who unwittingly falls into a parallel world rife with danger, adventure, and romance. Anastacia is well-drawn as a self-sufficient and sometimes precocious teen who has had to deal with many traumas in life, who learns how to cope over the course of the book. Her traveling companions are somewhat less complex, but the villains are unique and disgusting as well as evil. You want them to come to a bad end as Anastacia b ...more

Shelves: ya, fantasy-sci-fi
Although I hadn't read the first book in this series (Dawn's End) it sounded like this YA fantasy novel would stand well on its own. After her mother's death Anastacia travels abroad for a family wedding but stumbles into another world where she finds that she has grown up believing lies. There is a good reason that she has no photos of her father or a birth certificate. Dawn's End was a place of idyll but has been corrupted by negative influences from our world. Anastacia is seen by a small ban ...more
