Description -
Sixteen-year-old Kyra, a highly-skilled potions master, is the only one who knows her kingdom is on the verge of destruction—which means she’s the only one who can save it. Faced with no other choice, Kyra decides to do what she does best: poison the kingdom’s future ruler, who also happens to be her former best friend.

But, for the first time ever, her poisoned dart . . . misses.

Now a fugitive instead of a hero, Kyra is caught in a game of hide-and-seek with the king’s army and her potioner ex-boyfriend, Hal. At least she’s not alone. She’s armed with her vital potions, a too-cute pig, and Fred, the charming adventurer she can’t stop thinking about. Kyra is determined to get herself a second chance (at murder), but will she be able to find and defeat the princess before Hal and the army find her?

Kyra is not your typical murderer, and she’s certainly no damsel-in-distress—she’s the lovable and quick-witted hero of this romantic novel that has all the right ingredients to make teen girls swoon.

My Rating:5+stars

What to say about this book? There is a reason I haven't reviewed this before, after the first time I read it, I tried, I really did but I couldn't form coherent thoughts about this book, I just love it, okay? It's a fun whimsical fantasy adventure and it's just epic, okay?
This book follows the adventures of Kyra a master potioner on the run from the Kingdom for trying to kill the princess...and missing, now she must finish the job, of killing the princess, before she gets captured by the guards or worse her ex-business partners. There's also an adorable pig called Rosie, a handsome Prince in disguise, a hilarious princess...oh and evil munchkins, not to mention the gypsies and witches, see this book has it all!

A few of my favorite things -
  Kyra - She is badass, hilarious and, dude, she's freaking a potions master that's just all around awesome. The last thing in the world that she wants to do is kill her best friend, the princess, but she knows it's the only way to save the kingdom, also she acquires an adorable pig which is just the best.
  Rosie - The adorable pig...nuff said.
  Ariana - The princess she is the best kind of princess, think Merida from Brave but funnier almost like Rapunzel from Tangled.
  Fred - Fred is funny and sweet and everything one could want in a book boyfriend, also of course he's gorgeous.
  The world - I love the fantasy world in this so much, it has the things a good fantasy world needs including evil munchkins!
  Potioners - I just love the whole potion aspect, I love that the main character fights with the potions and poisons as her main weapon and it's just really cool.

Overall - I could continue gushing over this book or you could just read it yourself!
