    It only takes a drop to change a world. It only takes a kiss to change a lifetime. Poison is a beautiful retelling of the Snow White story which takes all the elements of the classic fairy-tale that we love (the handsome prince, the jealous queen, the beautiful girl and, of course, the poisoning) and puts a modern spin on the characters, their motives and their desires. It's fun, contemporary, sexy, and perfect for fans of Once Upon a Time, Grimm, Snow White and The Huntsman and more.

    Cinderella with a touch of Angela Carter

    I was glad I read Poison first as whilst the story is Cinderella, it does carry on from the previous book. This is definitely a series where you need ..Show More »
