Summary

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.

It really makes you think!

This is my favorite book that I have ever come across. This book has a certain way of making you face your fears and inner demons. It makes you want to take control of your life. The first time I ever heard the full book it left a imprint on me which I look back on for strength. It's amazing that a book could make you change your life in a positive way. Something I didn't expect was the way it made me really think about our role in life and how big it really is. If you think about it we are a tiny little thing in the never ending Universe. I actually tend to find it beautiful and humbling. It oureally is that good of a book.

one of my all-time favorites

I've been reading and re-reading this book several times a year ever since I first discovered it over 10 years ago. definitely in my all time top 5 favorite books, it's disappointing that audible doesn't have more books from this author. the haunting of alaizabel cray and tales of the Ketty Jay are excellent books as well from this author.
