Bestseller Books Poison What a strange and cool book. It starts out sounding like so many other fairy tales, with a younger sibling kidnapped by fairies. (In this book, Wooding calls them phaeries. I honestly don't think I can keep that up, so I'm not going to try.) Purely as a fairy story, it absolutely hits the mark. Wooding is drawing heavily from the concept of fairies as malevolent, and it works quite well. There's some excellently creepy imagery, particularly in the Bone Witch chapters.About halfway through the book, the story takes a serious turn for the meta. It is hinted at fairly early on, but it eventually becomes a driving force of the book. I'm kind of into this sort of thing, but it does make it a very different sort of book than it starts out being. Not everybody is going to like that. I especially liked that Poison's primary motivation throughout is her little sister, Azalea. Which is good, because she's kind of unlikable at first. But she grows throughout the story, and by the end I was surprised by how fond I'd become of her. Her story doesn't have the happiest possible ending, but it is a good ending, bittersweet though it is.
