A single kiss could kill. A single secret could save the kingdom.

Iyla and Marinda have killed many men together: Iyla as the seductress, Marinda as the final, poisonous kiss. Now they understand who the real enemy is—the Snake King—and together they can take him down. Both girls have felt as though they were living a lie in the past, so moving into the King's palace and pretending to serve him isn't as difficult as it sounds. But when you're a spy, even secrets between friends are dangerous. And each girl has something—or someone—to lose. Does every secret, every lie, bring them closer to the truth or . . . to a trap?


Helllllo emotional rollercoaster! I read Poison's Kiss and Poison's Cage back to back because after I read the first book, I just couldn't stand not knowing what would happen next! I absolutely loved this series and I thought it was incredibly unique and entertaining. I've read very mixed reviews, but I would highly recommend these novels. They are jam packed with action as well as romance, magic, and loooots of snakes! 

I loved all of the characters and really enjoyed how I felt like I wasn't sure who I could trust while reading. That aspect put a special twist on the novel that made me feel on the edge of my seat at all times. Marinda was definitely a hardcore character and I loved how she had good morals, but she would also do whatever it took to protect the ones she loved. 

All in all, Poison's Cage was everything I wanted and more! I loved the action, romance, and the fast paced plot. I would highly recommend both Poison's Kiss and Poison's Cage to readers who enjoy YA fantasy novels. It was a great read and I look forward to reading more from Shields in the future. Thank you to Penguin and NetGalley for sending this novel in exchange for an honest review. 

Rating 5/5
