I enjoyed reading The Queen’s Poisoner by Jeff Wheeler. This book was different from other fantasy novels I have read. The story followed an eight-year-old Owen taken away from his family to live at the castle with the king.
At first, I wasn’t sure about the novel, if I wanted a read about an eight-year-old boy, what he might have to endure without his parents. I am glad I did, for it was an excellent read.
The story opens where Owen’s parents made the wrong choice by going against the king. They lost one child because the King ordered his death. Owen fate was sealed, to be taken away and forced to live at the palace.
After that, Owen’s story started with the journey heading to the king’s castle. I could relate with Owen being terrified and dealing with the pain being separated from his parents.
