Overview


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 series just seems to get better and better with each book, and in saying that the endings are becoming more nail-biting and the suspense is going to kill me by having to wait for the next book.
    Now I don't want to give away too much of what happened in this book because I want people to read it themselves and experience the twists and turns as they go along, so I'll give a brief summary.
    After the ending in Touch where Kale's life was saved, Dez knew that there would be a consequence, and she finds that out towards the very start of the book and it's something that she would give anything to change, although she realises it could be worse and Kale could have died.
    Denazen is still after Kale and her, and after an incident where Dez is lethally poisoned she decides to keep it to herself, Jade another Six is found to help Kale with his ability but when Jade tries to put the moves on Kale, Dez's jealous streak hit's an all time high, but then they discover that there is a traitor amongst them, but will Dez figure out who it is before it's too late?




    I really do love this series, and I'll be counting the days to the next book, highly recommended, check it out.

    Toxic, book two in the Denazen Series, begins much the same as b

    Toxic, book two in the Denazen Series, begins much the same as book one - with heroine Dez on the verge of pulling off a crazy dangerous stunt. That aspect to the series, the fearlessness, particularly on Dez's part, is what makes it stand apart from the rest.

    Amid the action, we have Dez dealing with an uncertain future, and the question of her own sanity. Combine that with a power hunger father who will kill to get what he wants, and a hot, new chick who can touch Kale and live to gloat about it, and you can see why Dez is a little on edge these days. But, the girl always manages to hang tough. I admire that about her.

    In all this, we still have Kale, who is adapting well to life on the outside. I really enjoyed his and Dez's interactions at the beginning of Toxic. Their chemistry was smokin' and I could really see myself getting behind what a lot of other readers see in him. What keeps me from truly loving Kale is his personality, or lack thereof. This makes me a big meanie because his naive, unsure personality is well-explained and makes perfect sense. I just prefer my leading men with a ton of personality. Still, though, I do like him. His sense of loyalty and kindness is admirable.

    I felt that Toxic got off to a really great start. Kale and Dez are in a great place, the development that forces them to take a step back made sense. I get really antsy, though, when a third character is brought into the fold who, for some reason, has a special connection to one or the other. Then, the odd man (or girl) odd has to sit there and take it, because of the connection. (For example, Kaylee/Nash/Sabine) So in this case, we have Kale and Dez as the couple. Then, Jade comes in and gets in between the two because she can touch Kale without becoming ill, or dying. This is a very logical conflict, and I completely get why it is employed. But, it is one conflict that makes me a little crazy.

    Despite my gripe, I did enjoy Toxic. With its crazy, action-packed plot and a heroine who can kick some tail, the Denazen Series is one that many fans of Paranormal Young Adult will enjoy.

    Just Read It!

    The second book was no disappointment! It held the same quality as the first one. Full of fast-paced action, suspense, unbridled love, and betrayal. This book pulls you right in by making you feel the full gammet of emotions of the characters, especially Dez. I love that about a book. And Dez is no damsel in distress, she a bad-ass rebel with a purpose. Her purpose...Kale. I couldn't put the series down. I was glad to have read two books back-to-back, but I'm really disappointed I have to wait for the third book. I highly recommend this series for the sci-fi enthusiast!
