Poison, by Lan Chan is part one of the Wind Dancer series. In Poison, Rory is a young girl whose entire life was taken from her by the seeders. She lives by the motto that the only good seeder is a dead seeder.
Poison is set in post-apocalyptic Australia. After tragedy strikes, Rory goes on a trip towards the Citadel, hoping that she will be able to plead her case. Unfortunately her trip goes awry and her arrival at the Citadel goes from salvation to her people to their demise, and she is once again being asked to dance upon the wind in the Citadel’s circus.
As I was reading Poison, I kept thinking about the meaning of poison. While there is the typical toxic application, poison can also be used in relationships, in opinions, in nature. In Poison we see all of this and more as Rory tries to carve out an existence in the Citadel and questions all she thought that she knew.
If you are looking for a good dystopian story, Poison has promise. For a great story and unexpected twists, I am giving Poison 5/5 stars.
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
