The Prison Healer
The Prison Healer | Lynette Noni
Seventeen-year-old Kiva Meridan has spent the last ten years fighting for survival in the notorious death prison, Zalindov, working as the prison healer. When the Rebel Queen is captured, Kiva is charged with keeping the terminally ill woman alive long enough for her to undergo the Trial by Ordeal: a series of elemental challenges against the torments of air, fire, water, and earth, assigned to only the most dangerous of criminals. Then a coded message from Kivas family arrives, containing a single order: Dont let her die. We are coming. Aware that the Trials will kill the sickly queen, Kiva risks her own life to volunteer in her place. If she succeeds, both she and the queen will be granted their freedom. But no one has ever survived. With an incurable plague sweeping Zalindov, a mysterious new inmate fighting for Kivas heart, and a prison rebellion brewing, Kiva cant escape the terrible feeling that her trials have only just begun. From bestselling author Lynette Noni comes a dark, thrilling YA fantasy perfect for fans of Sarah J. Maas, and Sabaa Tahir.

Well that twist was certainly a twist. Admittedly a bit of a slow starter but still. Well done

Read first days of August-YA fantasy but so good. Not much to say because the story has many twits and that ending😱so good. Kiva has a complicated family and she is living in a world where you can go to prison for any kind of treason to the royal family. But why she was incarcerated during her childhood? Why nobody rescued her? How was her life in prison? Who are her family? Can she ever leave prison? Fast pace read. 3.8/4 ⭐️

Often, people view rereads as boring since they already know what‘s going to happen. I am not one of those people however because, oh my god, I love this book. The characters! The storyline! The quotes! And I have to say that this being a reread did not stop me from shedding tears. Also, the ending, never loses its impact!

“If you weren‘t getting information,” Kiva croaked out, “and you were never a real prisoner, then why didn‘t you just leave?”
His blue-gold gaze locked on hers. “Because I found a reason to stay.”

“What‘s your secret? To surviving, I mean?”
She considered her words carefully before answering, “It helps if you have something to live for. To fight for. It grounds you, gives you a reason to get up every morning. It gives you a reason to want to survive. And sometimes, it‘s the wanting that makes all the difference. Because once you give up in here”—she pointed to her heart—“then you‘re already as good as dead.”

What a fun book! Loved the setting. The surprise reveals were a bit cheap but they didn‘t detract from my overall enjoyment of the book. I‘m looking forward to reading the next in the series.

I finished this book 4-5 days ago, I‘ve just been procrastinating against writing this review but here I am. This was a really good book, but after reading so many books I practically predicted the last quarter of the book. Maybe if I hadn‘t investigated so much, I would have enjoyed it more. Nonetheless, I would recommend this to anyone! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5

I only read this because it was sitting in the kindle, and I was in the mood for more YA fantasy after reading vespertine. It was AMAZING. Loved it. The lives of the characters are pretty grim, it is a prison, and an awful one. It gave me Ember in the ashes vibes, in that regard. Can‘t wait to read book 2.

I am posting one book per day from my to-be-read collection. No description and providing no reason for wanting to read it, I just do. Some will be old, some will be new - don‘t judge me I have a lot of books.
Join the fun if you want. This is day 357.

Yikes, not sure if I can say I "enjoyed" this one cause I found it a bit nerve wracking with the constant threat of danger. It was very good though and I pretty much have to read the next one ? ⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book was SO FUN! I enjoyed trying to figure out what was really going on and it was fast paced to keep me hooked. Very light romance, YA appropriate. Glad I have book 2 ready because of THAT ENDING!

“For ten years, Kiva had followed her coded orders. But for the first time ever, she had no idea how to do what she was told. Because even if she could save Tilda from her Illness, there was no way to keep her from her fate.
Her death was coming, one way or another. And there was nothing Kiva could do about it”

BookBelle84 I loved this book! Already pre-ordered the next one 1y

Kiva is a likeable character almost because of her tendency to close herself off from others. It‘s clear that she cares about people, (she‘s the healer and takes that seriously + her relationship to Tipp) but she desperately tries to keep her emotions in check in order to survive. It‘s endearing in a way and makes her an interesting, atypical protagonist, especially because her role as the warden‘s spy blurs her morality. I need the next book ASAP

Such a pretty copy of this new YA fantasy from Aussie author Lynette Noni in last months Fairyloot box. I really like the stencilled edges but it‘s the foiled cover that I absolutely love. Plus the art on the reversible cover. They‘ve been doing them a lot lately & they look beautiful on the shelf. If you get these boxes, do you turn the covers around?

Cathythoughts A very pretty copy 💜 2y
