After the riveting—and romantic—events of Legacy, Katy has won Peter’s heart and is now claiming her place in the magical world. Though half the students at her boarding school come from witching lines, the use of magic is expressly forbidden at Ainsworth, so as to keep the witching world hidden from the blue-blooded preppies, aka Muffies, who also walk the halls.
But the Muffies have at least a notion of magic, because Katy catches them staging a made-up ritual—and to her astonishment, the girls collapse at Katy’s feet and fall into comas. When Katy is blamed, she becomes desperate to clear her name and finds herself battling all odds to harness her growing magical powers in order to save the Muffies and dispel the Darkness once more.

I have to begin by saying how much I LOVE the cover for Poison! I always feel right at home in a library and this cover just rocks!
Now I have not read Legacy yet and I always have to wonder when I read books out of order if I have missed any crucial moments or introductions. But with that said I can still tell you that I really enjoyed Poison. The writing was swift and flowed nicely. The characters were fun and entertaining whether good or bad even the Muffies! They were a fine piece of work!
As much as I enjoy just witch stories in general, I do believe the section in this story that I found the most interesting was the added storyline of King Arthur.
I think most anybody that has an interest in adventure mixed with a little witchy/paranormal in it would like reading this and I do recommend it to all.
