A Magic Steeped in Poison in set in a fictional Chinese province where Ning has recently lost her mother. Her sister is battling the poison from a cup of tea that Ning brewed and that killed her mother. When she receives an invitation to take her to the palace, where she might obtain a favor that could heal her sister, Ning jumps at the chance.

The writing is lyrical and beautiful, with interesting Chinese folk tales woven throughout. The jacket cover references Ning's family's tea brewing gifts and seems perfect for the story. Overall, this story has a great setting, an interesting subject matter, and will almost certainly make an engrossing story!
