I have a curse
I have a gift

I am a monster
I’m more than human

My touch is lethal
My touch is power

I am their weapon
I will fight back

Juliette hasn’t touched anyone in exactly 264 days.

The last time she did, it was an accident, but The Reestablishment locked her up for murder. No one knows why Juliette’s touch is fatal. As long as she doesn’t hurt anyone else, no one really cares. The world is too busy crumbling to pieces to pay attention to a 17-year-old girl. Diseases are destroying the population, food is hard to find, birds don’t fly anymore, and the clouds are the wrong color.

The Reestablishment said their way was the only way to fix things, so they threw Juliette in a cell. Now so many people are dead that the survivors are whispering war – and The Reestablishment has changed its mind. Maybe Juliette is more than a tortured soul stuffed into a poisonous body. Maybe she’s exactly what they need right now.

Juliette has to make a choice: Be a weapon. Or be a warrior.

Why Do I Want to Read It?

I won a giveaway on Instagram, (one of those giveaways where you get to choose which book you want under a certain price range) and was fortunate enough to get a first edition of this book (because I am a snob when it comes to my books.)

I originally wanted it because one of my favorite BookTubers (Whittynovels) constantly raved about this series but the more I researched it the more interested I became with it. I liked the scratched out sentences and the overall idea of a character whose touch was lethal.
