Series: Denazen #1
Published: November 1st 2011 by Entangled Publishing
When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.
Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized.
Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation—an organization devoted to collecting “special” kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons—his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they’re caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.
A secret Kale will kill to protect.
Down-right sexy, funny, fast-paced, exciting and touching.
Jus Accardo has created an effective characters and an amazing story, I was so absorbed by this book that made it hard to put down. The author’s writing and imagination was very impressive.
Our heroin- a young girl named Deznee who’s always game for pissing her Dad off whenever she can, bold and reckless, lively and has an attitude that I really like about her. And Kale, he’s a cute mysterious young guy who have never seen the outside world his whole life until the day he escaped and ran into Deznee And oh boy did they click together very well. I loved Kale so much, his innocence, his indomitable personality really intrigued me.
The romance scenes were so sensational and intense, and I mean really really intense. Reading Deznee’s mind was so wonderful, it was so realistic, the confused feelings towards her “first-love” e x-boyfriend and towards this new strange guy, her relationship with her father, and being a rebellious teenager. I know because I've been one when I was in high-school. One of the best part of the story was the love triangle, it was well executed, just like what Ive wanted.
The plot was moving; I felt the mixed feeling of excitement and nervousness of the events. It’s just awesome that I was deeply engrossed with this book. I am dying to read the second installment!
The Darkest Powers by Kelley Armstrong and Damage by Anya Parrish fans will surely enjoy this book. Atleast, that’s what I did. Recommended for paranormal romance fantasy lovers.
