That Maryrose decided to opt for this new, wickedly provocative and no-longer innocent girl, for me, shows that she's an author that's not afraid to take her characters completely out of their and the reader's comfort zone. And I, as weird as it may sound, was completely enthralled by Jessamine's drastic metamorphoses.
There's a new and deliberate suggestiveness to her actions that speaks of someone who is focused on doing whatever it takes to get what she wants. She's bold, reckless, and very intense. Most of her actions throughout the novel are certainly not something that we as readers would condone, and yet, for all that, she retains an innate inner goodness that still shines through and - at the end of the day - still had me rooting for her.
I have to say though, that as much as I love the sensitive and incredibly devoted Weed with his strange gift of talking to plants, the male character who really stole the show here, was Oleander, Prince of Poisons.
Weed, The Poison Diaries by Jane Northumberland | | Booktopia
Perhaps the fact that I love this villain, speaks of my strange preference for seductive, broody characters with a bad-to-the-bone streak. Whatever the case may be, Oleander's supernatural, mostly disembodied presence Jessamine, for the most part, hears him in her mind , was a tangible, wickedly magnetic and deadly force that kept me captivated throughout the entire novel. The influence he exerts over Jessamine is palpable and is a feeling that literally seeps into your own veins; making you feel as if you yourself were caught up in his lethal game.
It was case of her being the butterfly being trapped in the spider's web, and a case of me thinking: " Ok, I have to say that at this point, I'm seriously beginning to worry that I like Oleander's character so much. He's the puppet master holding all the strings, and she, fuelled by her desire to be reunited with Weed, is seduced into being a willing participant in his twisted game. And herein lies the heart of this novel.
Nightshade (The Poison Diaries, #2)
It's not just an off-kilter story featuring murder, and romance, but it's a story that speaks of the very nature of humans and about what they are capable of doing when circumstances propel the person in question to act. Often, when you see crime stories on TV, the murderer usually ends up being the neighbour who wouldn't dare hurt a fly. Nightshade doesn't outright express this sentiment, but it does show that the old adage, "never say never", definitely applies here.
My review wouldn't be complete if I didn't mention Weed and the plants. His relationship with the plants have always fascinated me and what I really loved is that we really get a glimpse into his thoughts and the way he communicates with them from his perspective. I complained that in The Poison Diaries, we weren't given much chance to get to know him, but Nightshade certainly made up for that in more than a few spades. Weed is as dashing as he is honourable and I, while mostly caught up in Oleander's spell, couldn't help but love him too.
His devotion to Jessamine is incredible and the lengths which he goes to in order to try find and save her, will have every single reader wishing for a boyfriend like him. And the talking plants?
That's something special you can only experience while reading the book. No amount of description can capture just how intriguing the plants are in their capacity to heal or kill given the right dosage and their ability to communicate with Weed, in a book review.
The Poison Diaries: Nightshade
To sum it up: Nightshade is a book of shadows and mystery, and one of murder and romance. It's a tangled weave of sweet and sinister, and a highly concentrated dose of venomous plants and sinful seduction.
