“Your sister is weak, but she is surviving on your strength. She has, at the most, four weeks to live. You will soon begin to feel some of her symptoms. If a cure cannot be found in those four weeks, you will both die!”

This was an okay YA fantasy story, but it was a little too much fantasy for me really.

I felt quite sorry for Sheysu, it was awful for her that her sister was so ill, and it was also awful the way the crimes of her ancestors were held against her.

The storyline in this revolved around Sheysu finding a cure for her dying twin sister, and there was some adventuring. Venom seemed to be the key to several parts of the storyline, and there was a very small amount of romance right at the end.

The ending to this was okay, and I was pleased that we got a happy ending, I didn’t love this one though.
