I am so excited to be a part of the blog tour for POISON by Molly Cochran hosted by Readergirl Reviews a Teen Book and A Life Bound By Books.
When I took a look at the description for this second book in the series and saw that the story was a mix of Arthurian Legend and witchcraft I couldn’t wait to be a part of the tour. And I couldn’t wait to add both LEGACY and POISON to my collection.
This second book in the series promises magic, mystery and romance. And with a boarding school setting where magic is forbidden, this sequel sound every bit as exciting as the first.
But if you haven’t yet met Katy, you’ll get to learn just a little bit about her as she interviews her author, Molly Cochran, for today’s stop on the tour. And if you already know you want to meet her, be sure to enter the giveaway below for a chance to win a copy of the first two books in this series as well as an advance copy of the upcoming third book.
And if you haven’t yet met Author Molly Cochran, you’ll learn quite a bit about her in the interview, such as whether she’s been burned at the stake, is able to fling 500 pound tables and just how she feels about writing “the end.” Oh, and there’s also a bio and links to places you can find her online if you want to know just a little bit more.
While I love my post for the tour, I’m not the only stop on the tour today with an awesome post. So be sure to check out all today’s stops to learn more about Molly Cochran and her awesome Legacy series.

POISON (Legacy #2) by Molly Cochran
After the riveting—and romantic—events of Legacy, Katy has won Peter’s heart and is nowclaiming her place in the magical world. Though half the students at her boarding school come from witching lines, the use of magic is expressly forbidden at Ainsworth, so as to keep the witching world hidden from the blue-blooded preppies, aka Muffies, who also walk the halls.
But the Muffies have at least a notion of magic, because Katy catches them staging a made-up ritual—and to her astonishment, the girls collapse at Katy’s feet and fall into comas. When Katy is blamed, she becomes desperate to clear her name and finds herself battling all odds to harness her growing magical powers in order to save the Muffies and dispel the Darkness once more.

Katy: Hi, Molly.
Molly: Hi, Katy.
Katy: This is the first time we’ve talked.
Molly: I didn’t think you knew I existed.
Katy: I didn’t. Well, sometimes I got the feeling that I was being watched.
Molly: I’m not just watching you. I created you.
Katy: Whoa, creep alert!
Molly: Sorry. So what did you want to ask me? Anything. I’ll answer.
Katy: Okay. What makes you think you know me?
Molly: I am you. That is to say, I’ve been through all the things you go through—
Katy: Hah! I suppose you’ve almost been burned at the stake!
Molly: No, but at times I’ve felt like everyone was against me… that no matter what I said, I couldn’t get anyone to understand me. Wasn’t that what the burning-at-the-stake business was really about?
Katy: I’ll bet you never flung a five-hundred-pound table at anyone, either.
Molly: Correct. But I’ve wanted to. You were the vehicle I used to get even with all the nasty people I’ve ever wanted to lash out at but was too powerless to try.
Katy: What a loser.
Molly: Maybe. Everybody feels like a loser sometimes. But if you think about why you feel like a loser, that changes everything. You go from being a loser to being a thinker. All writers start out as thinkers.
Katy: Whatever. Let me look at my notes. Oh, right. If you were an insect, what would you be?
Molly: A Katydid!
Katy: God, just how lame are you?
Molly: If you’re calling me God, I am. I’m your god. I can do anything I want with your life.
Katy: Is that why you write? To feel power?
Molly: No. I write because I have to. When I don’t write I begin to feel weird. Trapped.
Molly: This is how it is with me: Basically I feel like I was born in a cinderblock cell with no windows or doors. It’s gray and cold and the air is stale. All I have with me is a bottle of bubble juice.
So I blow a bubble, and . . . voila, I can see a universe inside! The bubble grows bigger and bigger, until it’s big enough for me to walk into it. And when I do, I find that suddenly I’m in Camelot. Or a monastery in Tibet. Or Atlantis . . .
Katy: Or Whitfield, Massachusetts, home to more witches than any other town in America?
Molly: Exactly. I get to live there for months, and sometimes years, getting to know the people who belong there and having adventures with them.
Katy: And then it’s over.
Molly: Alas. Those words “The End” are always the hardest goodbye. That’s when the bubble fades and vanishes, and everything inside it goes away.
Katy: Except for the book.
Molly: Yes. That’s my record of having been there. My souvenir.
Katy: So why did you choose this life? Why be a writer?
Molly: Because it’s the only way I can get inside that bubble.
Katy: Wow. And I live there all the time!
Molly: Lucky you.
Katy (checks notes again): If you died and got reincarnated, what would you like to come back as?
Molly: A fictional character. Preferably a major one who doesn’t get killed off in the early chapters.
Katy: A witch, maybe?
Molly: Definitely a witch, Katy.
