Rating: 3.5 My rating for this book is a 3.5 because the book is pretty slow at times. Even though it speeds back up it is enough to kill your mood for reading at times.

Summary: The Kinder Poison is a book about a teenage girl, Zahru. She can talk to animals but does not have any magical powers. She just wanted to see the royal palace but then ended up being a human sacrifice to the gods. She then has to get herself out of this while realizing that she is still powerful, magic or not.

Elantris, written by popular fantasy author Brandon Sanderson, tends to fall under the radar when talking about his best books considering it is a small standalone story while he has written massive series and 1000 page books. Despite this, and despite being his first book, it not only manages to hold up well, but it is an incredible book in its own right. Often, books in the fantasy genre feel boring and similar, and they often follow the same formula with the same menagerie.

All sixteen-year-old Siria has ever known is darkness. Years ago, the esteemed Queen Iyzabel veiled the kingdom of Terra-Volat in it because the light was too dangerous, becoming a hero to the people. Black hair and pale skin became the popular fashion, and even a slight curiosity in the old days of light is illegal. But Siria, with her flaming red hair and fascination with the sun, has always been considered an oddity, much to the dismay of her parents.
