When a Six saved Kale's life the night of Sumrun, she warned there would be consequences. A trade-off. Something taken for the life they gained. But Dez never imagined she'd lose the one thing she'd give anything to keep... And as if it's not enough Dez finds her immunity to Kale fading, the Six brought in to help Kale learn to control his killer touch starts drooling on him the moment they meet. Worse than that? Jade can touch Kale. But bimbo Barbie is the least of Dez's problems.
After Dez and Kale got away at Sumrun, her father lost not only his most powerful weapon but an important piece of the Supremacy project. Forced by Denazen to remedy the situation, he poisons Dez and offers her a choice--surrender to Denazen for the cure...or die. Determined to find a solution that doesn't involve being bagged and tagged--or losing someone she loves--Dez keeps the poison a secret. But when a rash of Denazen attacks hit a little too close to home, Dez is convinced there's a traitor among them. Jade.
Sacrifices, broken promises, and secrets. Dez will have to lay it all on the line if there's any hope of proving Jade's guilt before they all end up Residents of Denazen. Or worse, dead...
This is book two in the Denazen series and I have to say it was a brilliant addition. Oh my, what a rollercoaster of a story, I was on the edge of my seat reading this.
Lots of new characters added and also some old faces to add to the mix. I really do love Dez and Kale they are two most amazing characters. There is another character to add to my favourites and that's Jade, she is feisty and such a colourful person. I loved the tension between her and Dez, sometimes you could really see the sparks flying. It was lovely to find out a bit more about the characters and see each one progress. I want another book NOW!
I'm not going to give too much away about the plot as I don't believe in spoiling it for people who haven't read Touch. And if you haven't picked up Touch then I seriously beg you too, this book seriously is unique and pretty damn amazing.
I really do love Jus's writing style, it feels like a comfy pair of trainers that you can slip into with ease. Sometimes you hit a writer that you instantly click with and Jus Accardo is one of these.
Loved, loved, loved this and it gets another top mark from me.
My Thoughts on the Cover:
I do love this cover, it goes really well with the other covers in the series. The girl on the front, Dez, stands out so much and is very eye catching. The background goes with the feel of the name Toxic, because it looks so well......toxic! I would pick this up in the bookshop.
