On My Wishlist #1

I remember reading about this book for the first time when I was browsing The Book Muncher's page and it was like a love at the first sight. The cover really attracts me and as soon as I read the book description, I know in an instant that I'll love it. Since my birthday will be next month, I'm thinking of buying this and its second installment as a gift for myself! The details of the book is as the following:

Book title: Poison Study (#1)
Author: Maria V. Snyder
Series: Study Series
Format: Paperback
Pages: 416 pages
Genre: Speculative Fiction - Fantasy
Book Description (taken from Amazon):
Choose: A quick death...or a slow poison...About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace - and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia. And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster. But the chief of security, leaving nothing to chance, deliberately feeds her Butterfly's Dust - and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonising death from the poison. As Yelena tries to escape her new dilemma, disasters keep mounting. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and Yelena develops magical powers she can't control. Her life is threatened again and choices must be made. But this time the outcomes aren't so clear...
