The Queen's Poisoner - Jeff Wheeler
The Queen's Poisoner is the first novel in the Kingfountain series. This book is available through kindleunlimited.King Severn Argentine is a ruthless ruler. He's been know to take his noble's children as hostages against their loyalty. The Duke of Kiskaddon thought King Severn was fighting a losing battle, and failed to ride to his aid fast enough. His oldest son was executed for his lapse. Now eight year old Owen, the youngest Kiskaddon heir, has become the new hostage. Owen has to find a way to survive in the king's castle, and his unlikely allies are the cook, an eight year old girl, and the queen's poisoner. This is a great tale with great characters, and a bittersweet but great ending. Very highly recommended.
