Book Review: Poison





Poison (Wind Dancer #1)
by Lan Chan

Since the night her mother was murdered, sixteen-year-old Rory Gray has known one truth: There are no good Seeders.

In post-apocalyptic Australia, the scientists known as Seeders have built a Citadel surrounded by food-producing regions and populated with refugees from the wars and famine. To maintain their control, the Seeders poisoned the land and outlawed the saving of seeds.

It’s been six years since Rory graced the Seeders’ circus stage as the Wind Dancer and still the scars on her body haven’t healed. Even worse are the scars on her heart, left by a Seeder boy who promised to protect her.

Now the Seeders are withholding supplies from Rory’s region for perceived disobedience. Utilising the Wanderer knowledge she received from her mother, Rory must journey to the Citadel through uninhabitable terrain to plead for mercy.

However, the Citadel isn’t as Rory remembered. The chief plant geneticist is dying and rumours fly that the store of viable seed is dwindling. The Seeders are desperate to find a seed bank they believe Rory can locate, and they will stop at nothing to get it.

To defy the Seeders means death. But Rory has been close to death before--this time she’s learned the value of poison.

Recommended for fans of The Hunger Games, strong protagonists, circuses and nature!

Lori's thoughts: **ARC received in exchange for an honest review**

I hate getting free books and then having to review them less than favorably. I love YA dystopian novels. And this one sounded very interesting. I had a hard time keeping track of what was going on with this story. I couldn't connect with the characters, either. With all the Hunger Games comparisons, I figured I would love it. The book just didn't quite make it for me. But don't take my word for it. Give it a try on your own. It did get some really great reviews.
