Genres: New Adult, Science Fiction

What if the next new drug was you? Raleigh’s body produces a drug that could define the future of medicine if the dangerous world surrounding it doesn’t kill her first.

Eighteen-year old Raleigh Groves can sense disease in others and is suffering from her own unexplained illness as well. After years and dozens of doctor visits, she has given up hope of ever finding a cure, let alone a diagnosis. Then she meets a man who explains that her talent and curse are linked. Her body produces a drug, Lucidin, which allows her to sense others. She’s rare, and the drug she makes is coveted.

Rho has spent the last few years on the run. The Lucidin that is racing through his system makes him a target. Surrounded by addicts and dealers on one side and scientists and doctors on the other, he has to rely on his wits and his team to stay one step ahead. So far he has stayed afloat, but some of his brothers haven’t been as lucky.

As Rho and Raleigh collide they must face the perilous world of Lucidin together. Nothing is black-and-white and Raleigh must decide where her alliances lie. Sometimes the hardest heart to sense is your own.

     I truly have to commend Kate Tailor the author, for taking the time and effort to write such a detailed novel. The reader is definitely up for a challenge when it comes to the terminology used in this book, yet it is very believable and the author defines everything. The definitions will surely help those that do not have a medical background. On the other hand Tailor also gives her readers a look at different points of view and I do love this style of writing. This gives the reader a deeper opportunity at understanding the characters and their position within the novel. Tailor also keeps the readers eyes peeled and surely the beginning of the novel is the start of it! 

I give this book a rating of FIVE stars and I am so glad that I had the chance to give my honest opinion as well. I recommend to those that love a sci fi tale that intrigues them at every level!
