A Magic Steeped in Poison

Like the finest tea prepared by a practiced shénnóng-shi, Judy I. Lin’s debut—the first in a YA fantasy duology—engulfs the reader in a swirl of Chinese folklore, familial ties, and dangerous secrets. After her mother’s death by poisoned tea, Ning leaves her home village and heads to the capital to participate in a competition that could save her sister’s life. Relying upon the skills she inherited from her mother, Ning must prove herself a talented healer in order to be granted a lifesaving favor by the Princess. Meanwhile, as political unrest has everyone on edge, will the mysterious boy she meets in the capital lead her towards life or death? Recommended by Mary
