Review by

In the second book of The Poison Diaries, Nightshade, Jessamine is under the Prince of Poisons influence, and will do anything he says if it will lead her to beloved, Weed...even murder.I liked the first book well enough to see what was in store for the two lovers, but for me, Nightshade was a disappointment. Jessamine becomes so flawed that she is weak and unlikeable, while, thankfully, Weed's character improves. This sequel, though sensuous, is all doom and gloom.
