Dez Cross has problems. She’s almost eighteen and on the verge of losing her mind thanks to the drug Denazen used to enhance her abilities. People close to her have turned their back on the underground and are now fighting for the wrong side. And then there’s Kale... Things couldn’t get any worse.

Until of course, they do. Denazen is about to start a new trial—this one called Domination—and it works. But that means out with the old and in with the new. The order has been given to terminate all remnants of the second trial—including Dez. The good news is that there’s a survivor from the original trial. A woman who’s blood may hold the cure for the second generation of Supremacy kid’s defect. But the underground Sixes aren’t the only ones who know about her….

Cross is willing to throw everything he has to keep Dez from getting the cure—including the one thing that might tear her apart from the inside out.
When we last saw them, Dez was being cured from a powerful touch that could have killed her, and for that cure, Kale sacrificed himself and was taken back to Denazen as their prisoner. A few months later and Dez still hasn't heard anything from Kale or Denazen but she hasn't stopped searching. When she finally sees Kale again, she can't believe what she sees. It isn't the Kale she knows. He's darker and scarier, and he wants to kill her! I was in just as much shock as Dez and it was hard for me to read! I am so invested in these characters and Dez and Kale's relationship, and this completely broke my heart. I also know that even though Kale has killed before, he isn't a cold blooded murderer. I didn't know what was going to happen to Kale and I was definitely worried.

Dez is also dealing with the effects of the Supremacy project. She is starting to a hallucinate, and if they don't find a cure soon, she knows she is going to die. Despite dealing with so much, she is still the same strong, funny, awesome Dez we know and love!

Jus Accardo is such a talented writer, especially in the way she can make you feel for her characters, even when they are doing bad things. They all have a certain quality about them that makes them original and realistic. Also, her stories are always intriguing and captivating. There is always something going on in the story and it is a nice balance between being too much, and not being enough.

I can't wait to find out what happens next! This is a series that should not be missed!
