I like some of her other books better but this one had interesting characters and an interesting conflict.
Elise Scanlan
The characters were sypmathetic, diverse, and still strong, understandable individuals with their own goals and motives.

I don't even know where to start with this review. My head is all over the place and I desperately want more! I have read all of Amelia Atwater-Rhodes' books to date and while I love all of her stories, there are always going to be the ones that are my favorites and Poison Tree has definitely fought its way into the top three in that list.

This is the first book that has focused on SingleEarth as the main part of the story. Yes, it's true SingleEarth or a mention of it usually makes its way into every book, but it was nice to actually see inside of the organization and how things are run. It was also nice to see all kinds of characters in this book.

So much was explored and tossed out to readers at such a fast pace. We had humans, vampires, shifters, and witches. Plus there were a few returning characters from other books, which always makes me grin. That's another thing that I love about Rhodes's books, though they can all be read as standalones, the world encompasses all the books she's written and so sometimes characters cross paths.

And if you love them as much as I do seeing them pop up in new books makes you grin like a dope because it's like an extra special treat. I will not tell you who pops up, but I will say there's someone from Midnight Predator and someone from Persistence of Memory.

The best part of Poison Tree was absolutely by far the plot. I was slightly confused in the very beginning, but once we came back to present time things got clearer and as the story unfolded I was amazed how everyone who was running from something turned out to be intertwined.

I'm a long time fan of Amelia Atwater-Rhodes (since I got her very first book in Middle School!). I have since grown past the age that's technically supposed to be the target audience for the YA genre, but I don't care because Amelia's been my favorite author and continues to be my favorite author! Anyway, I was thrilled as usual to see a new release and I grabbed it up immediately! Strangely, though, I didn't actually read the book until several weeks later. Go figure.

All of Amelia's books (except for the Keishara series) feature a poem at the beginning (usually gleamed from some famous poet). This time it's "Poison Tree" by William Blake. How fitting. I know it's a tiny detail, but I love reading the poem in the beginning of each of her books.

Poison Tree follows two main characters this time (Sarik and Alysia), whom are both trying to escape their unpleasant pasts by joining an organization called SingleEarth (more on that later). Someone, though, seems to be trying to shatter the peace they've found there. Without spoiling too much, I'll just say that the plot is nicely suspense-filled as it keeps you guessing as to what's going on at all times. It's quite an enjoyable ride all the way through.

The focus on two main characters instead of just one had me a little bit worried, though, because her last book (All Just Glass) had way too many characters in it and was a bit hard to follow. Thankfully, with just two, she keeps the narrative tight enough to be understandable this time. The plot can get a bit confusing with all the inter-character misunderstandings going on, but it's not too bad so long as you pay attention.

Now let's talk about "SingleEarth".

While a long-term fan of Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, I was nervous about this book. It has a lot of character perspectives, a complicated plotline, and involves a lot of people and places we have seen or heard of in previous books. There were a lot of ways for this story to go wrong, and it didn't.

The characters were sypmathetic, diverse, and still strong, understandable individuals with their own goals and motives. The pace was blistering in a good way - once I got started going, I couldn't stop. The whole thing tips like dominoes, with tension that starts high and stays there, despite a few laugh-out-loud moments of funny.

This book isn't afraid to go geeky, but never to the exclusion of non-geek-types. Probably the tightest plot-wise we've seen from Amelia. Glad to see she's still writing and still pushing herself to be even better, despite her success!

I gave it a 5/5 for making me laugh, for surprising me, and for making me forget the world for a while. I highly recommend giving this book a chance.

Amelia Atwater-Rhodes is my wifes favorite author. Her books could be longer & she could release books faster. So really the only 'complaint' we have about an author is that we want more...

Great addition to Amelia`s collection. It was an easy, fast-paced read that took you to a world with great characters; each having there own weaknesses and conflicts to overcome. I have read all of her books since she first started writing and I have to say that this is one of my favorites!
