Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 10.20.21 AMJay Chris is the mastermind behind Envenom, a teen and young adult, dystopian novel. America is no longer the land we now know it as. Instead, a deadly virus ripped through the country almost two decades ago leaving behind poverty and chaos. Eventually an autocratic man took control, but he rules with little compassion for others. He has granted permission for a handful of cities to exist, but the citizens are not allowed to contact those from other cities. Chris’ main character, Kelvin, is only eighteen, but because his brother and father were captured a few years prior to the story he works hard to help support himself and his mother. Yet, is that enough for him? Kelvin has the characteristics of a rebellious teen, but one that is ready to take a stand and make a difference. He ends up being selected by the leader of his city to join a special team for a life-threatening expedition. And, in the midst of everything he develops romantic feelings towards one of his fellow team members.

Jay Chris’ Envenom offers you everything you might be looking for in a young adult novel. You will discover a dismal existence of humanity, a bit of violence, suspense, mystery, and a touch of young love. The most frightening part of this intriguing storyline is that it is plausible enough for you to recognize that it could happen in your lifetime. What if? Envenom is an entertaining read, and though it may not be infectious it will most likely leave you anxiously awaiting the release of Jay Chris’ next book.
