District City is full of monsters. Not the kind that appear particularly vile from the outside. The kind who murder innocent people for no apparent reason. Abandoned houses are haunted by wayward spirits. Leaders of rival Colors clash over the secrets of a brutal past.

After the Plague thinned out the population, Rin Morana figured people would have stopped killing each

“The world is built of dualities of mutual destruction.”
“This will kill that…“


The old regime is dying, and revolution is on the horizon. This Will Kill That is Danielle K. Roux’s debut New Adult Science Fiction/Fantasy blend that immediately drew me in, and has left me desperately needing more. This is a tale of a younger generation fighting to undo the sins of those that came before, hoping to make the world a better place for all, regardless of their lots in life. It’s also a beautifully

This Will Kill That is a fast-paced adventure featuring a fantastic ensemble of LGBTQ+ characters, fun chapter titles, and a nonlinear story structure that works so well.

The story grabbed me instantly from the shocking first chapter, and the fascinating Rin and Amaya kept me engaged in the story. I also adore Alan and Kazuki, but my love for them could be another post all its own.

The world-building is divine in this post-Plague era where eggs (and chickens) are scarce and people are divided into

I received this ARC from Parliament House Press in exchange for an honest review. This rated a 3.75 for me (I really wish Goodreads had mid-level ratings). This is a dystopian type novel where society is torn apart by a Plague. Those who are left end up with an aura-like Color that becomes almost like a faction. Each Color is out to segregate and/or kill the other. This book is fast paced with what I perceived to be multiple plots occurring simultaneously. The characters are witty and flow well ...more

Opinions: I have lots of mixed emotions about This Will Kill That. On one hand, it is an exciting, fast-paced, engaging read that I would suggest to all of my teenage readers. On the other hand, there are lots of improvements to be made regarding the writing style and plot. If you were to ask me what the main storyline of this book was, I couldn't tell you confidently. Not only are there multiple plots happening at once, but the

I received a copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

This story had it all! Plus it’s also LGBTQ which is even more amazing

The world building was immersive, the characters were intriguing and exciting (Rin was my favourite), and the writing style was just the kind of style I was looking for- fast paced, enjoyable, and easy to get into.

I really enjoyed this novel and I look forward to reading more from this author!



*Will have a review up tomorrow on my Instagram account*

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I did enjoy the book to a point, but I did have some issues with it. I did like how it was a fast-paced book and grabbed my attention right away. On the other hand, I couldn’t tell what the plot of the story was. I felt like it wasn’t told the right way. It was just all jumbled, that’s why I was confused reading it.
Maybe some one else would have a better time reading it, just this one wasn’t for me.

I received an ARC from Parliament Press for an honest review. This story is set in a really complex world with deeply developed, modern characters. The morals and ethics the characters face trying to understand and control the politics of their world drive the story. I’ll admit there were times I wasn’t quite sure what was happening because of the time shifts and paranormal aspects but it all came together with quite the ending. It was refreshing to see modern LGBTQI characters well represented ...more

With the death of her parents, Rin wants to see change in the world, she wants to see people stop killing each other based on their Color. Amaya has been raised in isolation, getting daily shots at the hands of her father. When she's finally had enough, she realizes those shots were more than just keeping her safe, and an entirely new world of abilities opens up for her.

This Will Kill That is a YA dystopian adventure that sorts people by Colors, and certain Colors are superior to others. With a

This was a good book, a bit confusing at times but it straightens itself out in the end. I will read the rest of the series.

This Will Kill That is a stylish, layered and fast-paced read. After the plague, what is left of humanity is broken into feuding factions, sorted by color. Hostile regimes clash over violent pasts. Haunted houses and characters like Rin and Amaya make this an even more interesting story. I really liked the way each chapter was another piece of the puzzle. Even the chapter titles rocked.

Many thanks to the publisher, Parliament House Press, for providing me with an E-ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.


Unfortunately this book just wasn’t really for me. Although I think the story was fast paced and interesting (which is exactly how I like my books) it was almost too fast paced. I was so confused about what was going on and the backstory of how it all fit together, that I couldn’t quite connect to the characters and narrative. I kept wishing it would all slow down

Danielle has been writing fiction since she was nine, after getting tired of reading from the perspective of white, straight male characters in fantasy novels. Her first written story involved a group of middle school girls who find necklaces used by a dead witch that give them supernatural powers. It was written in notebooks in purple and green gel pens that are currently housed in a box in her ...more
