The Designed by Kate Tailor
(The Designed Series #1)
Publication date: January 26th 2015
Genres: New Adult, Science Fiction

Synopsis:
What if the next new drug was you? Raleigh’s body produces a drug that could define the future of medicine if the dangerous world surrounding it doesn’t kill her first.

Eighteen-year old Raleigh Groves can sense disease in others and is suffering from her own unexplained illness as well. After years and dozens of doctor visits, she has given up hope of ever finding a cure, let alone a diagnosis. Then she meets a man who explains that her talent and curse are linked. Her body produces a drug, Lucidin, which allows her to sense others. She’s rare, and the drug she makes is coveted.

Rho has spent the last few years on the run. The Lucidin that is racing through his system makes him a target. Surrounded by addicts and dealers on one side and scientists and doctors on the other, he has to rely on his wits and his team to stay one step ahead. So far he has stayed afloat, but some of his brothers haven’t been as lucky.

As Rho and Raleigh collide they must face the perilous world of Lucidin together. Nothing is black-and-white and Raleigh must decide where her alliances lie. Sometimes the hardest heart to sense is your own.

I love this cover so much, it's what made me want to read the book and i was very excited to read it. I wasn't disappointed in a sense, i did enjoy the plot and writing but the characters i don't know i nether liked or hated them. i felt that everything happened to fast and when Raleigh gets the chance to go find the cure it was like " ok yes let's just go with a stranger i never met" and then realistically her parents would put up a fight refusing to let her go at first but that conflict was over so quickly.

This all reminds me of heroes in way, the way the sickness is in them. that's the only compliment i can give this, the meeting of rho and Raleigh made me so mad, i mean she quickly offered up her body to help him ( i mean it's nice but wow you just met) and then Rho's friends irked me so much, i did like that they didn't take to Raleigh right away yet their dislike was annoying.

My biggest dislike was when Rho offered Raleigh to be on the run with him and she's like " omg yes i'll go with you" and i'm screaming at her where is your sense, at least think about it. i guess she did think about it some but that was over quickly. she was too trusting and i couldn't really enjoy the story because of the characters and everything happening so fast,

Though this plot has so much potential and i think i'm going to buy the book and read again, i wouldn't mind seeing this as a movie.

Fantasy / Adult


In a land where three suns almost never set, a fledgling killer joins a school of assassins, seeking vengeance against the powers who destroyed her family.

Daughter of an executed traitor, Mia Corvere is barely able to escape her father’s failed rebellion with her life. Alone and friendless, she hides in a city built from the bones of a dead god, hunted by the Senate and her father’s former comrades. But her gift for speaking with the shadows leads her to the door of a retired killer, and a future she never imagined.

Now, Mia is apprenticed to the deadliest flock of assassins in the entire Republic—the Red Church. If she bests her fellow students in contests of steel, poison and the subtle arts, she’ll be inducted among the Blades of the Lady of Blessed Murder, and one step closer to the vengeance she desires. But a killer is loose within the Church’s halls, the bloody secrets of Mia’s pas…
