Now in My Bookbag: Toxic Part Two (Celestra Series 7.5) by Addison Moore

“They say death comes for you once and no more, and then you dissolve to bones, disintegrate from the memory of the world and cease to exist forever.” (Skyla Messenger, Toxic Part Two by Addison Moore)

This is a story about love, loss, destiny and death. Only one who is brave, strong, committed and pure as gold can face the fire. Only true love lends the willingness to sacrifice everything. Skyla’s life is very complicated and becoming more so as the series progresses. Her home life is crazy and produces some laugh out loud humor.

Although Moore crafts an intricate love life for Skyla, the level of angst is almost too much. I also feel that the amount of descriptive prose is lengthy enough to need additional editing. With an eye for paring down to the essential descriptions, Toxic can, I believe, be edited to one book.

Having said all of that, I did enjoy the ideas, the action, the humor, the concept of destiny and the heart of acceptance.

“This is the moment in my life for love and for death.” (Skyla Messenger)

    It’s interesting what you say about the level of angst being too high. I think some authors think you’ve got to do that to push the story along. But you need light and shade!
