Summary

There’s a fine line between a hero and a monster.

I'm not like you. Not good. Not human. They call me Oleander. Toxic and deadly. I killed my first human when I was nine years old...and I'll kill many more. Because, humans just won't leave me alone. 

I'm scared. 

I'm scared of their hate...scared of their ignorance. But most of all, I'm scared when they come with their guns and their armies...and they will come. I never wanted this dark power inside me. Never wanted to be anything more than good.  

I'm hiding now. 

Hiding with three just like me. Shadow, Tex, and Sixth. We're on the run because of what I've done - and what I am. 

They'll keep me safe

That's what they tell me. But Oleander isn't just deadly, it's noxious...growing and spreading poisoned roots through this world.

I want to believe I'm the good guy. 

But what if I'm not? What if humans are right? What...if I'm the monster?

Still confused!

I’m still not 100% on this storyline. I’m very confused as to what these characters are trying to do. It’s got good content and lots of action I’m hoping that in the last book everything will slot into place. Great narration

Fantastic

This was something a little bit unusual but I'm glad I decided to try it. I was immediately drawn into the story from the get-go and it never let up until I had finished it. Fantastic storyline. The narrator showed real empathy and invoked many feelings whilst listening to their voice.

Good YA fantasy

This is a good but dark fantasy. I really likes it, and the narrator did a great job bringing the story to life.
