Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.

But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart misses...

Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her?

The synopsis is slightly misleading I thought it was going to be all bad-ass and angst filled but it wasn't it was a fun adventure-fantasy with murder, intrigue, and potions.As if that wasn’t enough, there’s a sweet romance mixed in as well -without the cliche love triangle-and don’t forget about the adorable pig. Despite the fact that the story wasn't what I thought it would be I definitely enjoyed. 
 The story is about Kyra who is a member of  she is a master posineer who's on the run after trying to kill her based friend and Queen.

Kyra is the type of female main character that I adore she brave,snarky/hilarious and a good friend.What I really liked about her character was that she made mistakes and yeah at times she trusts the wrong people or doesn't trust the right ones but regardless she tried to do the right thing...even if the right think was killing her best friend.Then theres Fred the love interest who I started to like right away the romance between him and Kyra was cue and slow.It wasn't all in your face and unbelievable it was a shock from the usaul type of ya romance i read in adventure/fantasy stories.

I absolutly adored Rosie the pig at frist  i thought the pig aspect was going to be silly or annoying and a burden, but it wasn't like that at all.If only real pig were as likeable as Rosie.The story was filled with twist and turns and just when I though the plot reached the climaxt there were a few more twists that were no less shocking. The ending will surly surprise you.I'm glad i gave this book a chance and I suggest everyone else give it a try.3/5
