Until he met Dez, Kale’s days were filled with violence and death. He was used as a weapon of destruction by the power hungry men of Denazen. He’s a Six. A person with an abnormal ability. Some people call them gifts, but not Kale. Kale’s touch means instant death.
But now there’s Dez, the girl he can touch, and they’re hunting down Sixes and warning them about Denazen. Kale is learning about the world outside captivity and trying to put his dark past behind him. But they underestimated how badly Denazen wanted him back.
When Dez sacrifices herself to save the new Six they’d rescued from falling into the corp’s hands, Kale is lost. Denazen has brought out its best to get the job done. Samsen, a nightmare from Kale’s past—the only person he’s ever truly feared—has come for them, and it soon becomes obvious he has his own twisted agenda.
Kale will need all his training to get Dez back and ensure they make it out, free—and alive. But will it be enough?

Yes! A novella from a male’s POV. You all know how I’m a sucker for that, lol. And this one was even better because it was told from Kale’s POV, which is very different because he wasn’t exposed to the “real world” until recently and is basically learning how society works through a fully cognitive mind, unlike how we would learn it growing up from babies. The way Kale views the world, how people act & what they say is so hilarious and I loved every minute of it. I especially love how he views Dez and their relationship, so cute. You can see how much he truly cares for her and how their relationship is slowly, but surely growing into something deep and meaningful.
You get to see two new characters in this installment, Keirnan and Samsen. Both play important roles, with one being from Kale’s past, and not in a good way either. I love how Jus plays with the idea of superhuman powers and gives Sixes these awesome abilities. Whether good or bad, Jus takes the power and adds her own creative element to it which makes it stand out.
Untouched is a great read and an excellent addition to the series. Kale is such an intriguing and lovable character, yet he’s also dangerous and powerful. Jus has got me hooked and I can’t wait to see what happens next!
