Ok so what started out as one of my favourite series is now becoming my worst. Skyla IS SO DAMN ANNOYING she's kissing Gage one minuet, Logan the next and then Marshall and now even Ellis. The ending was pretty good I think surprisingly, the book was quite good it's just the love quadruple is making me sick, it's boring and now just plain aggravating. She needs to choose cause honestly I have had enough.
I feel proud of my man Marshall in this, he's the only one you can always rely on and depend

Seriously??? This still isn't the end??? Ok, so I am sucked in but losing my interest so please, please, please Addison don't leave any questions unanswered in Elysian.

Why has she asked everyone not to let Chloe die?

How does she get out of her covenant with Marshall ... if she does?

Why was she dumped into this faction war with no training, no clues and no idea what is going on until the last few regions? If anyone has an opinion on this one I would love to hear it. I know she needed to 'learn

To sum up Skyla in one gif:

This book basically covered one topic: "Your Hormones And Why You Should Give Them Up ". It was like Skyla had a one-tracked mind, completely smitten with the three Greek-god-resembling males that have graced her life. Not one. Not two...but THREE men. This book made me want to gag at how Skyla (apparently the saviour and supposed key to winning the war) was

Falling in love is a lot like death. It chooses you, It decides the moment and the chain of events that will preclude the precise intersection of life in which it occurs. It uses you--treats you as though you were malleable in its warm hands. It doesn't bother to ask if you want it or need it, just fills the gaping hole of destiny's design.

First off this is probably the first series I have ever read that I disliked the main POV character soo much. Sykla is the most self centered, promiscuou

I absolutely, positively love this series and when book seven and a half came out I did the happy dance. For real. I danced around like a silly one. I was a bit concerned that splitting the book into two would be disjointed, but it lent itself perfectly to the split. Unlike the previous books in this series, I decided to read it a bit differently and only allow myself a few chapters a day instead of my typical "Addison Moore Release Day Readathon". I have to tell you that putting down the book e ...more
Talk about edge of your seat! Every time I turned a page, poor Skyla is either on the verge of being killed, hated, or in the arms of her true love, which depending on what page it is, could be Gage, the hot guy, Logan, the hot guy, or Marshall, the hot guy.

The war between the Celestras and the Countenance is raging on, thanks to Skyla's real mom. Each battle must be won in order to win the war for the world's souls. So far, Team Skyla is not doing too well, or should we say, nothing is going r
Wow, where do I begin??? I think the second part of Toxic was just as great if not better than the first part. I found myself no longer worried about "who" Skyla would choose. She made fun of the idea of their threesome/square, but I think you really recognize in Toxic how lucky Skyla is to have that much love and devotion. I think you also realize that she needs it! She has such a heavy burden on her head and more often than not she is the one who is mostly in the dark while those around her ho ...more

Well when I think I am ready for the series to be over Addison Moore draws me back in. This author really is quite amazing and weaves a tale that both young adult and old will enjoy.

Toxic Part 2 FINALLY gives us more of the war we've been waiting for. What does fate have in store for Skyla Messenger and the other characters? Will they all survive this war? Definitely questions that you take into the next book. Both bad and good this book has both kinds of characters . Skyla and her family scene

I love this series!!! Especially the end of book 7.5.
I am still reeling from stupid Chloe decapitating
Logan and skyla chopping Ellis in half! I don't like
That I have to wait for the last book Elysian! Here
Are some of my notes:
I want Skyla to be with Marshall, gage is untrustworthy, Ellis was dating Chloe?,
Skylas mom sucks, skyla and gage gave wings,
Logan, Kate, peirce, Holden, Emerson (again) and Ellis are dead, for now that is.
I loved the book!

Does Skyla finally get her revenge on Chloe? And who does she finally choose to spend her forever with:Logan, Gage, or Marshall? This book finally ties up all the questions that have plagued the readers since the first novel in a uniquely stunning bow that can be easily undone to allow for another spinoff series (my hope of all hopes) because I seriously need my Logan, Gage, and Marshal fix.

This was the worst book out of the entire series. I wish I could have skipped it. I feel like this series seriously devolved and I really hope the next series doesn't follow this ridiculous love triangle pattern that doesn't die. ...more

Toxic Part 2 Review

Wow, this was a heck of a ride, of emotions, action, some blood and gore (you know, the facton war) we get some major sadness in this one, and great losses too.

I don’t want to spoil anything, but will say, its amazing, these books just get better and better, but you need to read them all or you would be so lost, it’s an ongoing story for sure.
Skyla has some decisions to make and sacrifices too. I felt so connected too.

I still love Marshall, just can’t help it. To me he is the

I'm happy with the was a long time coming and written incredibly well. I am however beyond done with this series. While I love the main storyline, the constant going from guy to guy is slowly driving me insane. I know what it is to love someone, and when you truly love someone, there is no room in your heart for anyone else. Pick a side...I beg of you...before I consider throwing myself on a spirit sword! ...more

Toxic has lots of laughs and brings the action... but I only gave this book 3 stars because Skyla is starting to get a little frustrating for me to read.

The series started off great and I found the love story between Logan, Gage, Marshall and Skyla very interesting. Marshall is a hilarious and Gage makes me feel all weak in the knees imagining his raven hair and deep blue eyes. I would choose Gage any day! Logan I felt so sorry for considering all the bad things that happened to him and his fami

Oh, well crap now I feel a bit emotionally dead. First off I'm going to start with the things that ticked me off because there are far fewer of those than the things that I liked. First off they party hard! seriously it's like a bunch of hopped up monkeys! which is fine but then there's the fact that weird and almost unexplainable things happen at random and no one really questions it. I hate Chloe. Skyla needs to stop trusting Gage, I think it's funny that everyone practically gets their heads ...more

Right on the heels on “Expel”, we have Skyla and Logan thrust into the hands of the Countenance and of course, they survived or else there’s no story to tell. The war rages on, and the end is nowhere in sight.

Again, I do not see anywhere in these two “Toxic” books that convinces the reader why Logan, Gage and Marshall place Skyla on such a high pedestal of love and devotion. She manipulates them shamelessly, especially Marshall and takes the meaning of “triple-barrelled heart” to a whole new lev

“They say death comes for you once and no more, and then you dissolve to bones, disintegrate from the memory of the world and cease to exist forever.” (Skyla Messenger, Toxic Part Two by Addison Moore)

This is a story about love, loss, destiny and death. Only one who is brave, strong, committed and pure as gold can face the fire. Only true love lends the willingness to sacrifice everything. Skyla’s life is very complicated and becoming more so as the series progresses. Her home life is crazy and

I really enjoyed the first few books in this series...but my rating has decreased for subsequent novels because I have become increasingly annoyed with the main character. She declares her "forever" love for Logan on one page, then says the same about Gage on the next page and goes on about wanting to sleep with him, then kisses Marshall in the next paragraph (and on and on...). She has been going between these 3 guys for most of this series. Throw away the idea of a monogamous relationship. She ...more

Oh how I love this series... Even if this love quadrilateral drives me crazy! Also, can I just say that Addison Moore is so funny. I laughed out loud so much during this book. Tad's exclamations like "Sweet babe in a manger!" & "Judas Priest!" Were just some of the things that cracked me up, also Skyla's inner dialogue of talking about her mother & the crazy baby schemes she came up with we're awesome. On another unrelated note, there is a ton of beheadings in this series & in this particular

This series frustrates me to no end. I try to forgive her for being young and stupid, but it is a big reason why it has taken me years to finish this series. So much potential that gets ruined with every senseless twist.

It also gets a bit disgusting for a YA book (this is supposed to be a YA book right?). And I don't mean the three-some or more-some fantasies. These are supposed to be the offspring of celestial beings? I have a feeling in this world I'd be hanging with Lucifer.

Love the series, I really do, but seriously? ANOTHER book of her just kissing around. It's not even that I want her to pick one of them now, I just want her to stop kissing all of them! It's just been taken a little too far, I've gotten so confused. And the faction war is the most confusing parts, just a lot of things don't really get explained and I'm just like ok... just gotta go along with it!

3.75 stars! I continue to enjoy this series a lot but I found that Toxic Part 2 dragged a fair bit as taken with Toxic: 1 - it just became many,o. many pages of 'same old, same old'. Which is not to imply it was bad but relatively speaking my interest began to wane.

Also, is it just me? but I cant abide the author's use of viral in these books, firstly many, many things are viral. Maybe it particularly grates because I don't understand the context of it in almost every instance - with viral hatre

“You have me.” His serious eyes penetrate mine. “For the rest of your days, I will be here for you—someone to trust, to lean on—to have and to hold from this day on.” Marshall is a thing of beauty both inside and out. I reach up and touch my fingers to his lips. Somebody is going to be very lucky to love him fully one day. “Those sounded an awful lot like wedding vows,” I whisper. “You will be everything to me, Skyla. A lover…” He kisses a finger. “A friend…” He kisses the tip of another. “A spouse…” He pushes my finger into his hot mouth and I pluck it out. “Where shall we spend our honeymoon?” He goes right there without provocation. “No honeymoon—but, well…” I fold my arms across my chest. “I’m sort of not really seeing Gage, since I can’t trust him. Logan wants to wait until the end of the faction war before we see where our feelings lie, so I suppose I’m open.” “Open?” His head twitches to the side just so. “You know, for wooing—no kissing though. You’ll have to woo without lingual contact.” “No kissing.” His chest broadens under the guise of this new turn of events. “Fantastic.” He says it sharp as if this were a war and he just gained ground on the enemy. “What shall we do to commemorate our first day of coupledom?” 8 likes
