Tremble by Jus Accardo

Dez Cross has problems. She’s almost eighteen and on the verge of losing her mind thanks to the drug Denazen used to enhance her abilities. People close to her have turned their back on the underground and are now fighting for the wrong side. And then there’s Kale... Things couldn’t get any worse.

Until of course, they do. Denazen is about to start a new trial, this one called Domination, and it works. But that means out with the old and in with the new. The order has been given to terminate all remnants of the second trial... Including Dez. The good news is that there’s a survivor from the original trial. A woman who’s blood may hold the cure for the second generation of Supremacy kid’s defect. But the underground Sixes aren’t the only ones who know about her….

Cross is willing to throw everything he has to keep Dez from getting the cure, including the one thing that might tear her apart from the inside out.

It's been months since Dez has seen or heard from Kale, after sacrificing himself and returning to Denazen, in exchange to save Dez's life. He's been living with the confines of the corporation, but he isn't the same Kale any more.

Confusion and madness is toying with the sixes that are almost of age, an illness that eventually leads to a painful and psychotic death. There is a cure, but those underground that need to destroy the Denazen corporation, need to find the remaining sixes that not yet been captured... Or killed. On a mission to retrieve a Six, Dez finds Kale and step sister Kiernan, together, both working for Denazen.

Kale has no idea who Dez is, only that she seems familiar. His memories have been stolen, he has been brainwashed into believing that Dez is the enemy. It's a race against time to find the list if sixes and bring them back to safety, only Kale and Denezen are doing the same. Kale is now cold, calculated and compliant. Earning the titles if The Reaper, as seen in the visions.

Many sixes are now hallucinating, extreme bouts of paranoia and incoherent tirades are symptoms of the progression of the illness, Dez included. Her only hope? That she can see Kale, her Kale, returning to her.

With little chance at finding the cure or the blood of the six that can save her generation, will Dez be able to help Kale to remember... Before it's too late?

The Denazen series is essentially teens who have been modified from the womb. Telekinesis, mimicking, healing, poisoning, Denazen had thought if everything. But foremost, it's a fun and very entertaining young adult series, and Tremble is no exception. Unfortunately, it felt as though Tremble was repetitive and only rehashed the same story, although with a slightly different twist.

It would have fared differently if Tremble had been released as a novella, cut out the filler scenes and get to the point. Having said that, I still enjoyed it.
