Toxic by Lydia Kang
Expected publication: November 6th 2018
Cyclo, the first and largest biological ship of its kind, is dying. A small crew of mercenaries have handed over the rights to their life to document the death of the ship, but the abandoned ship is anything but abandoned—one girl has been left behind.
Hana has known nothing but the isolation of a single room and the secret that has kept her there for seventeen years. When she meets Fennec, the boy assigned to watch her, she realizes that there is a world she has yet to experience but she is doomed to never meet.
When crew members begin mysteriously dying, Hana and Fenn realize that they are racing against the death of the ship to find a way to survive—unless someone kills them even before Hana’s truly had a chance to live.
This is an Asian inspired story and I only tend to read those if they’re fantasy and this is Sci-Fi. While I did originally not like the look of this one, I read the description a few times and thought of the Windup Girl which was an Asian dystopia that I absolutely adored and thought maybe it’s time to try something a bit different. This also had trigger warnings of violence from other reviewers which as those who know me know only attracts me to the book even more 😉 My excitement of this book has gone from mild interest to burning desire in the past weeks since I first read about it, and I definitely do plan on reading this authors previous books too which have mixed reviews but all so exciting descriptions! If /when I have my library TBR under control I will order these books 🙂
