#BookReview: Toxic by Lydia Kang #Netgalley

About the Book:

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.

Genre: Science Fiction/Horror, Romance, 

My Review: This one although it was pretty good I felt that the romance took over the story.  I would have liked this one more if the romance would have been toned down.  The story for this one is more of a scifi horror which worked out well. I really enjoyed that the author didn't shy away from the gruesome deaths that were in this story.  I will say that made this one for higher teens though becuase of it.  My other issue with this one was that the voice at parts felt more middle grade vs. the situation which is more adult.  The plot itself felt a lot like The 100 in the fact that this girl Hana was hiding. I just think that this one needed some more thought at least from my POV.
