Everyone knows the legends about the cursed girl, Isabel. They say she has green skin and she feeds on the poisonous plants that fill her family's Caribbean island garden. Some say she can grant wishes; some say her touch can kill. Seventeen-year-old Lucas has grown up hearing stories about the cursed girl. But time is running out for the girl filled with poison, and the more entangled Lucas becomes with Isabel, the less certain he is of escaping with his own life.
Legends collide with reality when a boy is swept into the magical, dangerous world of a girl filled with poison.
A Fierce and Subtle Poison beautifully blends magical realism with a gripping mystery and a dark, star-crossed romance - all delivered in lush, urgent prose.
"[Mabry] steeps her debut novel in compelling Caribbean folklore and a lush, evocative setting.... Fans of open-ended, atmospheric stories will enjoy the chilling suspense." (
