Product Description

New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder brings her Poison Study series to its exhilarating conclusion

Despite the odds, Yelena and Valek have forged an irrevocable bond—and a family—that transcends borders. Now, when their two homelands stand on the brink of war, they must fight with magic and cunning to thwart an Ixian plot to invade Sitia.

Yelena seeks to break the hold of the insidious Theobroma that destroys a persons resistance to magical persuasion. But the Cartel is determined to keep influential citizens and Sitian diplomats in thrall—and Yelena at bay. With every bounty hunter after her, Yelena is forced to make a dangerous deal.

With might and magic, Valek peels back the layers of betrayal surrounding the Commander. At its rotten core lies a powerful magician…and his latest discovery. The fate of all rests upon two unlikely weapons. One may turn the tide. The other could spell the end of everything.

Uber-talented Snyder continues to build an amazing world where loyalties are increasingly suspect and trusts may be broken. When it comes to unforgettable fantasy adventure, no one does it better! —RT Book Reviews, Top Pick!, on Night Study

Praise for DAWN STUDY:

‘What a fantastic ending to the Soulfinders series! I have loved each journey that I have been on in this world, and Dawn Study was a well crafted and epic conclusion, to this particular series, that will stay with me for a while to come. ’ — Naomi Hopkins (Netgalley)

‘It's a well crafted and epic conclusion to an incredible series that has kept me engaged throughout. It's easy to become completely immersed in her world full of spies and espionage, intrigue and mystery and this one had me sitting on the edge of my seat as all the threads of previous books came together.’ — Diana Hewlett (Netgalley)

'I very much enjoyed this book and know it will satisfy everyone who has followed Yelena and Valek to this point. Recommended for readers who love their fantasy, with strong world-building, and brave, resilient characters. The relationships are adult, but there is a positive range of ages, from young children through to grandparents who are all determined to do their bit. The banter is snarky, the characters depict diversity, and Snyder affirms that family are chosen as well as determined through blood.' — Trish Buckley (Netgalley)

Feel like this should have been titled - The Kidnapped Club. This was a running theme in this part two trilogy in the series. The author got herself into a rut and never got out of it - bad stuff happening, divide into groups, one group gets kidnapped, Yelena or Valek believe the other is dead and wring their hands, find out otherwise, plan a daring escape, rescue, night of love, must divide into groups, one group gets kidnapped..... and again and again... and again.
Every time I picked up this book it was a struggle to remember which group was currently kidnapped and why. It made the plot a little plodding, a lot predictable and more than a little tiresome as I rolled my eyes yet again as the plan went haywire and someone just got themselves kidnapped - really surprised I didn't give myself eye strain.
Sigh - whilst this world is interesting the author isn't bringing enough depth or imagination to the plot anymore.

3.0 out of 5 stars ReadingBifrost Review 27 April 2017
By Reading Bifrost - Published on

“Because now the baby was tangible. Not just a concept or a belief. Real. Excitement mixed with fear, and the desire to protect crashed through him like a burning hot wave. He staggered to his knees under the weight.”

Unfortunately I have to say I was disappointed with the final book in one of my most loved series. It did not live up to the exciting, magical, assassin, butt-kicking book I’ve loved in the past.

To start the review, a look at Valek an Yelena. Their voices and mannerisms in the book have changed, but that didn’t bother me much at all. Valek the Assassin is slowly turning into Papa-Valek, and Yelena has when she calls “baby-brain”. Where Valek was more trusting of Yelena to handle herself, he seems to worry more for her safety and doesn’t approve of her putting herself in danger, and vice-versa with Yelena. Out little couple is growing up and worrying about their future as a family.

What really threw this book off was the entire plot line. It seemed to be bouncing around everywhere. In other book in the series, groups would split and every other chapter or so would update on one group or the other. In Dawn Study, however, there were so many separate groups by the time one rolled around the reader would have forgotten what that group was up to in the first place!

There were also more than a believable number of kidnappings/captures in this book, even for a romantic fantasy! Every other chapter one of the characters was in need of rescue, which is disappointing for this series because I loved how the characters were mostly self reliant or always had each other to get out of the tough situations.

I did love that Fisk and his Helper’s Guild had a major roll in this book. His little guild of street kids has almost grown into an army of their own, and they the ins and outs almost as well as any trained man of Valek’s. It’s great is see what started as a insignificant character in one book grow to become so important over the series.

Overall, Dawn Study was good. It defiantly wasn’t what I was hoping for in the last book of the series, but it was good. Now I’m just left with my fingers cross for a Janco/Ari/Onora spinoff.

Love this book. It's a real page turner. This whole series was excellent. Hard to find good books to read when you've read thousands. And all of those reads are in the Fantasy category so finding great books in that vein is increasingly difficult! Read this in 2 days. Had to finish it!

I loved following Yelena and Valek through this journey of protecting their countries, building bonds with friends and family, discovering their own strengths, weaknesses, uniqueness, and understanding of themselves. Maria V. Snyder has a unique ability to describe our human nature and teach the reader how to cope with problems and loss without losing hope and trust in those in "our herd". I will be reading the entire series multiple times, it's my favorite series to date.

I have followed these books since the first (Poison Study). I have laughed, cried, had my stomach in knots and watched as each of these characters came into their own. I loved when I found out she continued the series with a second trilogy! I did of course guess one of the biggest surprises in the book, but that was only because I hang on everyone that I read of Maria Snyders!

Very disappointed. Her first books in the Study series were amazing. The last 2 went round and round, repetitive and predictable. I had hoped for a bit more, but still enjoyed knowing what became of the characters. I don't know what Night and dawn had to do with the Study.Just seemed random names compared to poison, fire or magic study.
