New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder's powerful, compelling, fiery Poison Study novels have sparked the imaginations of legions of fans...
Her enemies are multiplying...
Yelena's magical powers are unusual--and people are growing uneasy. As the Council of Magicians debates her fate, she receives a disturbing message: an old enemy has arisen.
Though told to await the council's decision, Yelena cannot let the murderous sorcerer who nearly defeated her once go free. Still learning about her abilities, she must push her magic to the limits as she calls on all her allies, enemies, family and friends. The fate of all is in her hands--if she can choose wisely...

"Doing full justice to the plot of this original and entertaining epic fantasy is impossible. Suffice it to say that the action is nonstop...riveting."

Maria V. Snyder

When Maria V. Snyder was younger, she aspired to be a storm chaser in the American Midwest so she attended Pennsylvania State University and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology. Much to her chagrin, forecasting the weather wasn't in her skill set so she spent a number of years as an environmental meteorologist, which is not all.

Bored at work and needing a creative outlet, she started writing fantasy and science fiction stories. Over a dozen novels and numerous short stories later, Maria's learned a thing or three about writing. She's been on the New York Times bestseller list, won a half-dozen awards, and has earned her Masters of Arts degree in Writing from Seton Hill University, where she is now a faculty member. Her favorite color is red.

She loves dogs, but is allergic, instead she has a big black tom cat named...Kitty (apparently naming cats isn't in her skill set either). Maria also has a husband and two children who are an inspiration for her writing when they aren't being a distraction. Note that she mentions her cat before her family.

When she's not writing she's either playing volleyball, traveling, or taking pictures. Being a writer, though, is a ton of fun. Where else can you take fencing lessons, learn how to ride a horse, study martial arts, learn how to pick a lock, take glass blowing classes and attend Astronomy Camp and call it research?

Maria will be the first one to tell you it's not working as a meteorologist. Readers are welcome to check out her website for book excerpts, free short stories, maps, blog, and her schedule at You can also follow Maria on Facebook and Goodreads.
