2017RC: Fire Study
As I look back on what I wrote for Poison Study, my reflections on Maria V. Snyder’s third installment in the Study Series, Fire Study, are sentimental, corrective, and tumultuous. I now understand more about the other books branching out in the world Maria V. Snyder has created, and know they cannot – well, should not – be read out of order.

2017RC: Magic Study
After finishing Poison Study for my Reading Challenge, I was able to get my hands on a copy of Magic Study pretty quickly, and will admit that I finished it in one day. As the second in Maria V.

This post is a short one, because in this second book there are a lot more world-related details, a lot more excitement, and for me, a little less reflection.
2017RC: Poison Study
After falling in love with Deborah Harkness’ The Book of Life series, I sought out other fantasy series to fill the void I was left with after completing her trilogy. For my 2017 Reading Challenge, I decided to include The Lord of the Rings as my “series pick,” but wanted to read an additional series I was not familiar with. So after reading countless blogs and scanning multiple BookRiot lists, I decided on Maria V. Snyder’s Poison Study series.
