The Kinder Poison Blog Tour

Perfect for fans of Victoria Aveyard and Holly Black, this enthralling fantasy adventure follows a teenage girl chosen to be the human sacrifice in a deadly game between three heirs who will do anything for the crown.

Zahru has long dreamed of leaving the kingdom of Orkena and having the kinds of adventures she’s only ever heard about in stories. But as a lowly Whisperer, her power to commune with animals means that her place is serving in the royal stables until the day her magic runs dry.

All that changes when the ailing ruler invokes the Crossing: a death-defying race across the desert, in which the first of his heirs to finish—and take the life of a human sacrifice at the journey’s end—will ascend to the throne and be granted unparalleled abilities.

With all of the kingdom abuzz, Zahru leaps at the chance to change her fate if just for a night by sneaking into the palace for a taste of the revelry. But the minor indiscretion turns into a deadly mistake when she gets caught up in a feud between the heirs and is forced to become the Crossing’s human sacrifice. Zahru is left with only one hope for survival: somehow.

The Kinder Poison (The Kinder Poison #1)
by Natalie Mae
Publisher: Razorbill
Release Date: June 16th 2020
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy



The Kinder Poison by Natalie Mae is an exciting new fantasy. This books is a young adult fantasy with a bit of a romance. The Kinder Poison has some great characters. Zahru has grown up in the Kingdom of Orkena. 

In Orkena, you either have to be gifted with magic or you get banished and then based on the type of magic you have is where you are placed in the Kingdom. Zahru has the ability to speak with animals, so her magic is considered to be a lesser magic. One day Zahru ends up in the palace and part of a competition of the royal heirs.

Lets talk about the romance for a moment. The romance in this big is a very slow burn. There is a bit of a triangle going on as well. I feel like Mae did a good job with the world building in this book. IT was easy to imagine the world in my head and what is going on.

About the Author:

Natalie Mae is an ex-programmer, dessert enthusiast, and author of young adult novels. She has also been a freelance editor and Pitch Wars mentor, and feels it notable to mention she once held a job where she had to feed spiders.

She now writes full-time at home with a bag of dark chocolates in one hand and a leopard cat on her lap. She is most definitely not checking Instagram right now.
