Leigh Morgan has known that magic existed ever since an unearthly monster abducted her sister. It’s why she’s in Otherworld now, posing as a servant in its dark, decadent palace. She’s gathering intelligence and working with a small band of allies to bring down the Others and free their human captives. Her mission depends on blending in, so the last thing she wants is to attract the attention of a sly, handsome prince.
Dredarion Rath wants one thing: to disgrace his idiot older brother and prove himself the worthier heir to the throne. And out of all the servants in the palace, he chooses Leigh to help him. Just her luck. Now she has to keep her work a secret from a bewitching man who sees right through her—and who’s not nearly as cold and inhuman as he seems.
To keep her cover, Leigh has to help Dredarion with his coup, all the while preparing for her team’s attack on the palace. She can’t screw this up, or the humans forced into servitude will never go home. But juggling two conspiracies at once, it’s only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down and the man she’s falling for has her executed for her betrayal . . .

Magic comes in many forms, sometimes you’re lucky and it’s a dark heir to the throne. Wait . . .

Poison and Honey is a fast read that piques the reader’s curiosity with some enchanting—yet dangerous and scary—creatures, and two main characters on different missions. Which one would you side with? You might think the answer is easy, but it actually becomes a bit of a dilemma when you start getting attached to the enemy . . . Right, Leigh? Although I would have preferred a slower pace at times, especially when it comes to the relationship building between Leigh and Dredarion, I still enjoyed every minute of it. And just like their chemistry made me turn the pages, doubts and questions about motives and characters kept my attention alive from beginning to end.

An alluring prince, a feisty human, and an intriguing world-building filled with discoveries (yet) to make. Do you have what it takes to survive explore the Dark and Otherworldy?

    • I know how you feel Stephanie! I really love urban fantasy, but it’s been a while since I read one . . . I’m glad I didn’t pass on this one, though 😀
