It starts with poisonous herbs under the cradle. Then under the sheets. And inside the clothes. Even mixed in the milk that they feed the newborn. This way the child gradually gets used to poisons and becomes the perfect assassination tool—the "Poison Princess" whose every kiss, tear, and even touch bring death. Her only chance of survival is to fulfill her duty as an assassin and find a way to live on in the enemy land she is sent to...if her heart is strong enough.

A girl who could never be free, a boy who was crazy, a boy who was perfect, and a protector.
The first chapter was confusing but it get's better around the third. It was sad, sweet, romantic, dark and just radiated hope.
Through the whole story you find yourself debating who your routing for. An incredible story of love and pain.

King Glandol had three children,
The useless child
The protecting child
The perfect child
Yet it is said that one among them will bring the kingdom to absolute destruction.

Lycoris is a princess from a kingdom with an evil queen who used to make what is pretty much called a poison princess (dokuhime) which are later sent to other kingdoms to destroy them.
Lycoris was sent to the kingdom of Glandol where the story takes place.

This romantic yet tragic story is really exciting to read, the victorian age never failed to make a good story, once you finish a chapter you can't stop reading. I like the characters a read more

Dokuhime is such an extremely underrated manga for the pure quality it displays in itself throughout the entire story.

The story of a Princess of Death, 3 sons of a mighty king, with a war approaching because of the absence of said king.

What could possibly go wrong? Well.... A lot of sad things can make this go wrong, and I'm here to tell you about them.

The plot-line I could feel was very certain of itself, and always keeps you reading. At every intense moment in the manga, I found myself staying up til' the late hours of the night flicking to the next page. I received read more

Dokuhime is a story, staged at a fantasy setting, and it's starring classical type of characters from setting like that, mostly focusing at the nobility. As the name of it suggest, we do follow through the story of one particular girl, which is a poison princess and we come to understand the gravity of this title in this world.

The story at the beginning is being added with lush strokes, and in wide perspective, although it does straighten up and focuses a small cast of characters later on. While I do appreciate the effort to weave and create complex read more
