Locke Vinetti is a high school junior, disenchanted and more than a little hostile. In fact, for years he's had a lousy social life because of a problem he has with his anger--a force he calls "the venom." Ever since he was eight years old and bit off a piece of a classmate's nose, he's been something of a loner. But all that is about to change when he goes out with his one friend, Randall, to meet some of Randall's crew hanging out at Riverside Park. Because in addition to meeting his kindred spirit, Casey--who has his own problems with his own kind of venom--Locke meets the spikey blue fairy-haircut Goth girl of his dreams. And if their relationship is going to work, he knows he has to rid himself of the venom once and for all. Interspersed with comic book adventures of the fantasy anti-hero alter-ego Locke has invented for himself, VENOMOUS is a fast-paced, funny, and ferocious read about one teenage boy's struggle with his inner demons.

This book is a must read if you like a dark story with a nice bit of romance and action. I own the hardcover copy of this book and have read it so many times there are many coffee and "kool-aid" stains and it's starting to fall apart at the bindings. I love this book and am looking forward to Mr. Krovatin's new release this September. Let's hope it lives up to this book!
This is really the best book I've read in my lifetime... It's not for everyone.. But it definitely deserves a chance! I lve read this book twice already!!
