A Touch of Poison now available for pre-order

It’s a busy summer here at Five Rivers, and we’re pleased to let our fans and readers know Aaron Kite’s Wattie Award-winning YA fantasy is now available for pre-order through Five Rivers’ website, as well as from online retailers globally.

Gwenwyn is the most miserable princess ever, and for good reason. Merely brushing up against her or touching her exposed skin is enough to cause painful burns, or worse. And if that wasn’t enough, she’s just discovered the singular reason for her existence: to act as the king’s secret assassin, murdering neighboring princes with nothing more than a simple kiss.

This is definitely a fantasy with a twist, and a surprise ending which completely hoodwinked editor and publisher, Lorina Stephens who often cries spoilers much to the chagrin of her friends of colleagues.
