This was supposed to be written last week but I've been so busy that I forgot.I already gave an introduction in the last post so I'll skip that for the rest of the posts.Hence,if you have no idea what I'm talking about,check out my last post.
So here it is,my thoughts on chapter 9-17 of poison study.

The chapter starts with Yelena moving into Valek's rooms where she finds a message which calls her a murderer.It spooks her a little but she doesn't obsess over it and moves on,this I liked about her.We get to know more about Ixia and its working e.g the uniforms.
One thing I was pretty confused about was why Yelena constantly called a rat?Aren't rats basically spies?But Yelena didn't sell information,she murdered someone.
I don't like Margg even though throughout the book most people have said how loyal she is.
The story Dilana told about Margg and her was pretty entertaining.entertaining. Yelena is chosen for a special assignment and she admittedly does great in it and we can see her innovative and clever thinking. Valek still doesn't trust Yelena but he's getting there.The encounter with the magician got me thinking and left me with a lot of questions.We also meet Ari and Janco and get to see more of Valek's skills.No wonder he's feared.
Yelena makes a new enemy and some friends who now agree to train her.Not bad for 8 chapters.As usual I loved these and I couldn't stop reading.

Choose: A quick death . . . or slow poison.
About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She’ll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace—and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia.
And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster. But the chief of security, leaving nothing to chance, deliberately feeds her Butterfly’s Dust—and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonizing death from the poison.
As Yelena tries to escape her new dilemma, disasters keep mounting. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and Yelena develops magical powers she can’t control. Her life is threatened again and choices must be made. But this time the outcomes aren’t so clear. . . .
