Waterstones Says

A condemned prisoner receives an unexpected reprieve, a dangerous job, and a sizzling – but potentially lethal – proposition from an alluring assassin in Snyder's scintillating romantasy.

Choose: A quick death or a slow poison.

Found guilty of murder, Yelena Zaltana faces the ultimate punishment – execution. Imprisoned deep in the castle's dungeon, she awaits her fate until Valek, the security chief and assassin, offers her a reprieve. For a price.

As the Commander's new food taster, she must risk death, on a daily basis, by the most gruesome poisons. With no other options, she’d be a fool to refuse. And despite the constant danger, the more time she spends with Valek, the closer they grow.

But the new-found attraction between them is heating to a dangerous level, because Yelena is hiding a lethal secret. She's developed magical powers that she can't control. And the penalty for magic is death…
