About the Book:
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.
I cannot start this review without first saying, OMG. Yes, page after explosive page I found myself screaming OMG aloud and at the top of my lungs. I feel like I’ve been sent on a crashing plan ride and Jus didn’t even bother to warn her passengers about the dangers of flying on the Denazen airline. Just as I adored Touch the first book in the Series, I am also swooning over Tremble.
The story begins shortly after book two, Toxic ends. We’re introduced to a surly Dez reeling from Kale’s decision to sacrifice himself in order to save her life. Slowly dying because of the Six trials and emotionally beaten down by the loss of Kale, Dez’s life is quickly taking a nosedive into oblivion. *Cries Cries* Her friends attempt to loosen her up a bit and give her a night of fun. What should be a familiar trip back into old Dez territory, leads to a shocking sisterly reunion and a heartbreaking one when – OMG – Kale shows up at the party. Kale doesn’t realize who Dez is, or remember any of their time together. All he knows it that Kiernan (Dez’s sister) is the object of his affection and Dez (who in his mind is Kiernan) is someone he wants to hurt for destroying his entire world. Sounds a bit confusing eh? We’’ it’s not in the land of Supremacy.
Because of a Six’s ability, Kale’s memories have been rewritten so to speak and now everything he believes is a lie. The Kale we all fell in love with is now nothing more than a shell of a person full of hate with powers that are ready to kill anyone in his way. Unfortunately, Dez cannot do anything about Kale’s situation because as they quickly learn, his powers have grown and make him almost unstoppable. *tear* In the meantime to take her mind off her Kale problems, Dez works with the other members of the Underground to find other Supremacy kids and alert them to the coming danger. However, the Underground are not the only ones looking to get their hands on Sixes, Denazen is hot on their trail too.
The thing I love most about reading a Jus Accardo novel is the action. One emotional action packed moment is always followed by another, and another, and another, and another until all you have is an EPIC adventure cemented in angst, powerful writing, and characters you will hate to love, love to love, and love to hate! AH, I adore me some Dez. She is so raw and never deviates from her true self. Despite her hardships and everything she’s had to endure, she still remains the loyal, quick-witted, brave, spitfire girl from the first novel. Kale though, gosh I just wanted to cry during the first half of the book. He was pretty ruthless and dang near broke my heart with how awful he was being to Dez. Still though, I love him and was rooting for their relationship the entire time.
Overall, I can’t say much about the book without giving away spoilers so I will just end this review with nothing but the highest praise. If you haven’t had the chance to read Touch or Toxic, I suggest you do so before picking up Tremble because the emotional journey truly is EPIC and will probably give your heart palpitations late into the wee hours of the night.

COMING SOON FROM JUS ACCARDO!
Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course…
When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.
Seven deadly ones, in fact.
They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they’re recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing…
There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.
