    The most interesting character is the ship. I still don't quite understand the architecture of Cyclo or the science of her matrix, but she's by far the most complex and intriguing character. The story itself is quite exciting once the first death occurs. I was all set to rate this four...

    Ranconi and Vikas Adam! What could go wrong? Yes I only chose this book cos f them. Poor Hana, she spent 17 years in one room. Hidden from everyone. Because if they found out she would have been killed. Only those meant to be born are born, and she was not meant to. But she has her ...

    A fast-paced action-packed, romantic, sci-fi adventure that grabs hold of you and does not let go. Characters: Hana Fenn Cyclo Portia Gammand Miki Fenn & Hanna Their relationship moved pretty quick, but considering they're in a life or death situation I suppose that's...

    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. This is kind of a sci-fi, ...

    Many thanks to Entangled Teen for providing me with this E-Arc of Toxic in exchange for an honest review. Life on the ship Cyclo is closely monitored and the population is capped at 1000. Unknown to the rest of the crew, there is a 1001st member. That person is Hana. Hidden by her m...

    3.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/11/25/... When it comes to science fiction, there are few things more irresistible to me than a story about killer robots or rogue AI. This is the premise behind Toxic, a young adult space adventure set aboard Cyclo,...

    I couldn?t help thinking of Kass Morgan?s The 100 when I first saw the description of this book. That?s not a bad thing as I?m a big fan of both the book series and the TV adaptation although they bear only a moderate resemblance to each other, as you might expect. At any rate,...

    Hannah has been asleep for an entire week on the Cyclo?s matrix. When she wakes, Hannah realizes her mother is gone and she is all alone on a deserted ship. No one on the ship besides her mother and Cyclo even knew of Hannah?s existence. She was never allowed to leave her room on C...

    "Toxic" is a creative YA sci-fi that primarily takes place on the ship, Cyclo. Cyclo is actually a living organism which is designed to work like a machine. However, Cyclo is dying, and things are changing. Hana was born on Cyclo and has only known the ship. Her mother, Dr. Um, is the ...

    You can find the full review and all the fancy and/or randomness that accompanies it at It Starts at Midnight I have read a few books about sentient spaceships, and my favorite thing about this is that it seemed like afresh take on sentient ships. Our girl Hana wakes up to find t...

    I found Toxic to be a really unique experience: a mish-mash of multiple genres that when put together for me just flowed. I would describe this if I had to clarify as a Romantic sci-fi YA with elements of horror. Set in space on an organic ship it was the original premise put for...

    How many time can I say I love Science Fiction? LOL. This book was light fast paced read about a girl who was only starting to live in a dying world. Unlike a lot of heroines in other YA books where it's already book 3 and they are still whining, I loved how fast Hana learned who she w...

    TOXIC by Lydia Kang is an exciting new standalone, science fiction for young adults readers with a strong dose of romance. This is space thriller filled with plenty of action and danger to keep things moving while a mystery keeps you guessing. It takes place in space on a sentient ship...

    This was a very unique book with a very unique setting, that is both a place and a character, and hero and a villain. I agree with other reviews that have said the ship was the most interesting character in the story. It was both something I couldn't completely grasp because it's so ou...

    The ending of Toxic was more gripping than the beginning, but the story didn?t manage to really suck me in. Toxic is a YA science fiction novel following two teens aboard the dying biological space-habitat Cyclo. Hana was created in secret by her mother in violation of the communi...

    ARC received in exchange for an honest review - thank you! I didn't think, when I first started this book, it was going to be a 4.5 star read. The cover makes it look like a light YA sci-fi romance; instead, it's a delightfully dark, horror-filled space thriller. Requesting t...

    Read my NetGalley eARC. Opinions are my own Did you love Annihilation and wish it took place on the Nostromo? This book was written specifically for you. Seventeen-year-old Hana has lived on a bioship named Cyclo until a crew of criminals shows up to do some research. Cyclo is dying...

    In TOXIC, an artificially created girl gets abandoned on a sentient spaceship and falls for the mercenary who has to make sure it gets destroyed if he wants to save his sister. So, I'm in love. TOXIC is exactly the kind of light sci-fi I love and cherish. A little bit of aliens,...

    Toxic by Lydia Kang is a young adult standalone romantic science fiction fantasy read that has maybe just a touch of horror to it too. When finished with this one it was one of those wow, I didn?t expect THAT moments, but in a good way of course. Seventeen year old Hana awakens ab...

    Toxic reminds me of a cross between The 100 and Passengers. It's a survival story which belongs in the horror genre. It's also a romance read. It's fast-paced and written well. I'm not really a fan of horror and that's probably why I didn't like this more. For the right reader, you wil...

    2.75? She wasn?t supposed to exist so when they left her on the ship they left for dead. His team wasn?t supposed to be on the ship but it was supposed to be abandoned. There starts a romance and basically thats all that happens after that. They start to fall in love and b...

    DNF @ 30% This book was ok. As I have very little time for reading lately, I don't want to spend it on a book I know I won't feel strongly about. I think my main problem with this book, if one can really call it that, is that I'm not the target audience. I feel like I've outgrow...

    4 stars One of the most notable things about Toxic was how readable and gripping it was. I started it (unwisely) on a school night, hoping to read a few chapters before setting it down and going to bed, but I ended up binging the majority of this book very late at night when I defin...
