Review: Poison Tree


By - Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Publication - July 10, 2012

This world is not our world.  Inside this story the reader will find SingleEarth, vampires, shapeshifters, Tristes and the Bruja Guilds.  Although each group may work with other groups, cooperation is the exception, not the norm.  Sarik is a shapeshifting tiger that left her clan after her human sister was brutally murdered and became a mediator for SingleEarth, an organization that helps supernatural creatures.  Alysia is a human with a checkered past in the Bruja Guilds, groups of assassins that have a mixed up honor system, who has found satisfaction working for SingleEarth.  When an attack occurs at SingleEarth, both women must face the past they left and rediscover who can be really trusted.  Can either woman survive the personal and political issues they thought they left behind?
Most of the main characters are introduced in the prologue and then their stories split before reuniting halfway through the book.  The book is of a moderate length that made for a quick read, but the writing is stunted and the storyline varies from confusing to very simple.  The book would have been a better read if the length was stretched and more detail was applied to the characters and storyline.  Goodreads Book Information
