    Toxic Dust by Eve Langlais 1st book in the post-apocalyptic Deviant Future series. Laura is a worker in the Dome. She works and follows the rules because any deviant behavior is swiftly dealt with. The Dome is all she has even known. She is naive and without hope. When she fights off a childish monster, her life is thrown into chaos. Laura finds herself out in the wasteland and fighting for her life. Are the deviants all she’s been told?

A fast paced, enthralling read that I didn’t want to put down. It’s an after nuclear world with surprises around every corner. Wonderful world building and a romance that goes from innocence to hot and sexy. From mindless drone worker to powers of the mind that can cause disruption and death. I listened to the audio version which was narrated by Heather Costa. I also have a paperback and ecopy of this book.

    This book was actually really good. It was interesting and had such a sweet romance. The only issue I had with it was there were some typos that I found distracting, but I don't think that is enough to take a star away.

    This author is wonderful at world-building. She is also adapt at erotic romance. This book has a lot of the first, and very little of the second. The world-building is first-rate, with the reader discovering clues along the way, not through info-dumps (except the prologue). Unfortunately, the hero is more than reluctant, and the heroine is intentionally and painfully naive. The secondary characters are intriguing, but the bad guys are really lame.

    I’ve been anxiously awaiting this new series by Eve. It’s not unheard of for me to only get to read a couple of her books in a series because the timing of the releases just doesn’t work out. Well I’m here to tell you, I’m in this one for the long haul. I’ve got all the release dates on the calendar so my reading time is blocked off. To the story, right?

Well I’m here to tell you, I’m in this one for the long haul. I’ve got all the release dates on the calendar so my reading time is blocked off. To the story, right? The world consists of earth after a nuclear war and a meteorite shower that destroys pretty much everything. Some people went underground and some built shelters called Domes on the surface to clean the air humans to live in. For those that don’t live in the domes, they usually end up with some sort of “Deviant Nature,” be that extra appendages or magic. The leaders of the Domes want to exploit those with “Deviant” Magic to keep their people strong. Although this is not what they tell people because they wouldn’t get so many to blindly follow if they did. When one of the lower born citizens starts to question things as her magic awakens, she heads straight into a lot of trouble, both inside and outside the domes. Thankfully the person who catches her and starts it all rolling is really a teddy bear under all the bluster and immense handsomeness. Otherwise it could have gone much worse. By the end of this book, they get their some-kind of HEA!…I mean they are still fighting for a place that doesn’t include hiding and trying to figure out her lineage and everything she is capable of. This new world comes with lots of great characters like the 3-armed doctor and the soothsayer whose age is undetermined, to the crazy cat who leads everyone on a chase. It’s a place full of life, that you have to look real hard to see because circumstances are so much bigger than the life. I can’t wait to read the next one in the series: Wasteland Treasure. From the blurb it looks like we’ll see some more weather patterns of mystery and I’m sure we’ll get another HEA out of it. Eve keep’em coming, we are ready for this new world. I’m giving this one a 4.5 of 5 because there is a bit of a cliffhanger, not around the love affair, but in the story itself. And I’ll be back in April with a first look at Wasteland Treasure!!

When he encounters Laura, his world is rocked to the core. She wants to return, and he can get a good deal for selling her – so why does he hesitate? This is an excellent start to the series, and I’m eager to see where it goes next. This dystopian tale proves that while cities may crumble to dust, love will always be there. Although greed will be there too, love will hopefully always win.

    Better than her other recent release almost similar to this title, Toxic. I enjoyed this story better than the other. However, parts felt hurried towards the end, somewhat. I do look forward in continuing this series. I wondered if Langlais could expand further from PNRs and Cyborg sci-fi. She did a Wonderful job at world building and character building. I also think that this is the only story where the h isn’t annoyingly defiant to the point of irritating.

    I didn’t hate Toxic Dust but I, definitely, didn’t love it either. It was what I expected from the cover: a cheesy as heck dystopian romance. Toxic Dust takes place in a post apocalyptic world where dust from a meteor shower proved toxic to the world, killed a bunch of people, and over time changed their genetic makeup. Now, in present day, people either live in domes or out in the wasteland. Laura is a dome resident brainwashed by the doctrine of the dome leaders.

Like I said prior, this book is cheesy. I wanted cheesy so decided to give it a go. Then, I think it was just me because I have been in this weird reading slump it felt like I had make myself finish this book. It wasn’t bad it was just very very predictable. The romance was just okay. Toxic Dust was just, for me, a decent book with an interesting world but a predictable plot.

    Holy Crap!!!! I haven’t read a book in a long time that had me rushing home from work to read or filtered into my mind while I was at work. Such an amazingly written story. Absolutely lived Toxic Dust! Can’t wait for Gunner.

    Paranormal dystopian romance This is going to be a good series. In this first book we briefly learn how the earth and the people were changed from what it was to what it now is, a dangerous wasteland. Everything that has survived has evolved and not always for the better. I like Axel. Laura irritated me until about 3/4 through the story. She grew on me and ended up being the hero. There are several interesting side characters. I'll be interested to learn more about those in the Domes as well as a Paranormal dystopian romance This is going to be a good series.

    Awesome start to a new series Toxic Dust was such a roller coaster! There were so many unexpected moments, seriously imaginative creatures, and lovable characters that I just couldn’t put the book down. There were times I thought Axel was awful, times I wanted to throat punch Laura, and times that I was so proud of each of them. If this story is any indication, this series will be epic!

    I really liked this new series. At first I really didn't like Laura. For someone who was brought up to never question anything and keep quiet, she was quite the opposite and was too stubborn. She got a clue later on in the book and become better liked.

AXEL is the default leader of the rebels living outside the Dome. Earth as we know here has been destroyed by foreign space asteroids and the dust that came with it altered biology, creating a whole new world with dangerous wild beasts and nature is no longer just that. When one of their raids yielded an Enclave female, Axel assumed her to be a spy but the woman is frustratingly fearful of his people, a prude and an Enclave snob who has been terribly brainwashed and ignorant to the point of stupid. I'm amazed that Axel is attracted to her...maybe she rouses the protective instincts in him...but I'd say he's so goddamned patient with her, he deserves Sainthood. Axel himself is a deviant with equally cool powers of being able to communicate with animals. He's also a pretty good leader even if he denies having any authority amongst the motley group that gathers around him. I like Axel. He was a strong, capable leader that you'll definitely want to protect your sorry ass in a world like this. LAURA. Where do I even begin? I think the author did a splendid job of depicting her as an Enclave slave because she has been brainwashed to the point of having no common sense at all. At 27, she's considered a late bloomer when her powers showed and suddenly she's being transported to become a Madre - in other words a breeder for the Enclave. She believed it to be a prestigious roles but the horrible truth behind it is that the females are used to be forcefully bred like cows for babies. The Enclave is a sterile, regimented and almost hostile environment to live in that dictates the life of every being beneath its dome YET people like Laura doesn't know better. I enjoy meek heroines but at least those who have intelligence to make up for it. Laura doesn't. She's like the pathetic puppy at the roadside waiting to be kicked. I hated that...I honestly felt a perverse satisfaction when she was railed at for being stupid several times in the book by the other characters. OVERALL this is an interesting start to the series, though I hope we get to meet a kickass heroine in the next one.

    2.5 stars I was delighted to read a dystopian series for adults. Unfortunately this was a bit disappointing. This book confirms my reasons for hating series with a different couple in each book. Those first 1 or 2 chapters from Axel's POV were unreadable. About 100 characters were mentioned in the space of a few pages and nothing was going in my head. Why can't author's just focus on the current book rather than setting up all future books?

At one point the romance felt a bit inappropriate. Laura was way too innocent; she never interacted with a man, didn't know about sex, or what a pregnant woman looked like or even how babies are made. Then we have Axel kissing her to make more compliant. And for a woman who didn't even know what kissing was, she forms a sexual relationship with no issues or complications later on. It was kind of laughable. So, it was an okay book, but had a few faults. Don't think I'll bother with the rest of the series.

Will they eh able to overcome those who rule and just live?

I got a good feeling of his personality but his power seemed rushed and not relatable. More like thrown in last minute. Definitely needed more build up for that would have been great.

She made terrible decisions for 90% of the book. She didn't even flesh out how she evolved into the group. After all the events is she helpful? Did she find something to do to contribute? I know there are more stories but I feel cheated, the main characters become second characters before they told their whole story.

    I was excited to read this story before it even came out. Most post-apocalyptic worlds are set in YA settings and so they never really draw me in. This reminded me of Mad Max meet the paranormal world with a little bit of the Divergent series thrown it. I was sucked in from the beginning. Can't wait for the rest of this series to come out

    Good This is a complex interesting new works based on a vision of life after the apocalypse. I suspect humans would be this awful to each other. Laura is ok but her naivety whilst understandable is a bit grating.

    I haven’t read such a great book in a while! It’s probably been about 2 years since I read a book that kept me at the edge or my seat. This book hooked me from the beginning and has so much substance! It’s different, futuristic and dystopian and the romance is so sweet. Loved it
