Author: Jus Accardo
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?
We’re happy to have Jus Accardo, author of the Denazen Series with us to today…and she’s brought some friends to share the fun!
The Word Game with Alex and Kale from the Denazen Series
I’m here today with Alex and Kale from the Denazen series. They’ve agreed to play a little word association game!
Jus: Okay guys. Here are the rules. I say a word and you each tell me the first thing that pops into your head. Just a single word. Sound good?
Alex: *rolls his eyes*
Kale: *points to Alex* He loses. That’s two words.
Jus: It’s not something you win or—
Alex: It’s one word. It’s hyphenated. That doesn’t count.
Kale: *glares at Alex* You’re a cheater. Is it because you’re not smart enough to play the game correctly?
Alex: Smart enough? Seriously? This from a guy who walks into a restaurant and orders dog food to get spaghetti…
Kale: *tights his fist and stands* I don’t like you. Maybe I should touch you.
Alex: *snickers* Wrong equipment, dude. We’ve been over this before.
Jus: Am I going to need to separate you two? *turns to Kale* What word do you associate with happiness?
Kale: *smiles* Dez.
Alex: *groans* This game is pointless. Rain Man here is going to answer every word with Dez.
Kale: That’s not true. If you were to say irritating I would say something else.
Jus: What would you say?
Jus: *sighs* So maybe this wasn’t such a good idea…
Thanks for joining us Jus…and for bringing Kale and Alex with you!!
