Master of Poisons was a enjoyable read for me. This story revolves around two different characters tasked with massive tasks; both face challenges to achieve the goals set out for them. 

As far as character develop, I enjoyed both Djola and Awa on page. 
Djola whom even though exiled must still find a way to save his world from the poison that is quickly consuming it and Awa whom even though sold must focus on her training. The times she and Djola were on page as they connected through Smokeland was special. 

What works for Master of Poisons is the worldbuilding. Its fluid and strong. Andrea Hairston does an outstanding job of keeping readers invested in the worlds she created; real and spirit. With that said, there were times when I had to push through the book as the flow at times felt...contrived. 
I do feel like most readers and will state that this one will more than likely require a re-reading but still Master of Poisons is a story worth your reading time. 

At the end of it all, Masters of Poisons is properly listed as a epic high fantasy book and if you're a fan, I think you'll appreciate the telling of this tale Andrea Hairston has blessed us with. 

*Thank you to the publisher for the opportunity to read/review.
