By Breeana Shields
“A teenage assassin kills with a single kiss until she is ordered to kill the one boy she loves this YA fantasy is romantic and addictive like — a poison kiss — and will thrill fans of Sarah J. Maas and Victoria Aveyard.
Miranda has kissed a dozen boys. They all die afterward. It’s a miserable, but being a visha kanya, a poison maiden, is what she was created to do. Miranda serves the Raja by dispatching his enemies with only her lips as a weapon.
Until now, the men she as ordered to kiss have been strangers, enemies of the kingdom. Then she receives orders to kiss Deven, a boy she knows too well to be convinced he needs to die. She begins to question who she’s really working for. And that is a threat that, once pulled, will unravel more than she can afford to lose.
This rich, surprising, and accessible debut is based in Indian folklore and delivers a story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.”
