Toxic by Lydia Kang Review and Giveaway
Toxic by Lydia Kang
Genre: YA Scifi
Release date: 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.

What a high paced sci-fi read! The story is filled to the brim of adventure and unexpected plot twits that will have readers at the edge of their seats. This is the first work I read by Lydia Kang and I thoroughly enjoyed her construction Cyclo. Toxic was a very immersive experience where readers follow the intricacies and unveil the secrets of Hana's existence.
Due to some tropes I'd rate this a solid 3 star read!
