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.

If I’m honest, I didn’t have a very good time with this novel, though that possibility is the result of my tastes and interests instead of something the novel did wrong. Being more interested in contemporary literature, I found it hard to find myself invested in what was going on. Though the plot was reasonably fast pasted, I found myself having to weigh through each page and my eyes kept darting to the page number at the bottom. I wasn’t invested in anything that was going on and I couldn’t find myself relating to the characters.

I did think the idea behind the novel was interesting and seemed like something that would appeal to many people. I’ve read reviews and many people seemed to enjoy the novel so I’m sure if sci-fi and space travel appeals to your taste - this book will be right for you.  

’Toxic’ may not have been the right book for me, but it did have really intense and interesting themes, that could be followed through. As someone who doesn’t read a lot of Sci-Fi, I don’t want to put anyone off :)
