Waiting on Wednesday: Toxic by Jus Accardo

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted over at Breaking the Spine, spotlighting books that have not yet been released but are being greatly anticipated. Today, my pick under the category "This book looks so fantastic it isn't even funny" is the sequel to the awesome Touch by Jus Accardo: Toxic.

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...  
I just read Touch the other day, and I absolutely LOVED it. I totally can't wait to see what happens next (both in Toxic and in the novella, Untouched) with Kale, Dez, and the Sixes. AND THAT SYNOPSIS! Eek. I'm already freaking out. It seems like bad is doomed to go to worse in this one!

Grr. This book is going to drive me crazy, I already know it.

What are you waiting on this week?
