    One thought on “Toxic”

    1. Originally reviewed at: oscarlettreviews/I picked this story up for free at least a year and a half ago. I sent it directly to my android app, since I loved the cover and thought the theme sounded intriguing. I gobbled down the introduction and first chapter or so, and then the POV changed to a completely different character who I didn't identify with so I put it down and read something else.Ever so often I would pull it back up and read another chapter, but for some reason, I couldn't connect [...]

    2. A lovely tale that follows 3 young heroes/heroin on a journey that tests their beliefs and skills. We meet a magical horse and are chased by some tough baddies. The characters were a little reminiscent of the children and the lion in the Witch and the Wardrobe. There are also a few religious connotations to the plot. My favourite character, if it was one, was the wind but I never quite understood it's role as it didn't seem to get involved in the unraveling plot. A beautifully Written tale thoug [...]

    3. At first I was a little hesitant in this book. Book the moment I opened this book, I was instantly captivated! Three teens are called to cleanse the river, poisoned by evil. But if they are ever going to suceed, they will need to learn to set aside their differences, to work together, and completely trust in the One True God. Throughout the story, I came to love Kai, Lizzy, and Taryn, and how each of them have their flaws as well as their stregnths. What stood out to me was that even though thro [...]

    4. At last someone has written a fantasy that can be viewed as light-hearted and at the same time meaningful, just like the Chronicles of Narnia! Three fascinating human beings join some delightful good characters plus some deadly fictional ones in a way that creates enjoyable, clean reading. Vicki Lucas demonstrates how riveting action can be written without the need for swearing, vivid gore, or any unnecessary focus on evil. Toxic would appeal to anyone from age 10-90 looking for a little "other- [...]

    5. I really want to praise this book, mainly because it was written by a Christian author, and I want to be the same. I don't want to be a discourager, but I see problems. Let me start with the strengths, first.The world building and characterization was good, and the description was often really fabulous. I reread some parts just because the imagery was so good. I think that will attract readers, and for good reason. The story idea was also good, although rather popular in the sword and sorcery su [...]

    6. This book was recommended to me by another author in the Indie Christian publishing circles, so I decided to take a chance.Plot – AThe plot of saving a dying world from an evil sorcerer may not be one of the most original in the range of fantasy plots, but I thought Lucas did a good job of making it her own. I didn’t feel that I was reading a rehash of a classic fantasy offering, which is always a good thing in my book. There was a distinct storyline that was completed in this book but the c [...]

    7. It’s been a long time since I flat-up enjoyed a book I was reading. But I’ve been totally basking in Toxic’s glow. In fact, although it’s a fluid, easy read and I read half of the narrative in a mere day, I found myself closing the book on purpose so that I could have some to enjoy the next day. The story picks up fast. The action scenes are riveting and edgy. The chapters are short enough to keep you saying, “Just one more!” The symbols before each character’s part really help in [...]

    8. I liked this book and give it 3.5 stars. It is a christian fiction sci-fi type adventure book. It is geared toward the YA audience but I enjoyed it just as much as an adult. It reminded me of a cross between "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" and "Harry Potter" mostly because of the 3 friends and their adventures. It was easy to relate to the characters and I loved the good vs evil. I would consider this an allegory with the Bible similarities. The adventure kept me captivated and the pages [...]

    9. This book was amazing! I've read it several times and would totally recommend it to really any age of a reader. I know that it is in the Christian Young Adult Fantasy genre but I'm 35 and it was a page turner for me.I'd consider it a little older than the Narnia series but with a bit of the Lord of the Rings tossed in.That's just my humble opinion, however, I've not heard anyone NOT like this book yet.

    10. I really liked this book and was held spellbound to the end! I was challenged to try and figure out who the characters were in the biblical perspective. I recommend this book to everyone and am definitely looking forward to her next book!
