The airborne toxin was released seventy-five years ago, apparently without thought to what the long term consequences would be for the human race. Those that lived fell into two vastly different camps. Most took on the physical attributes of venomous creatures which passed on to any progeny. A small percentage remained human. Called anti-venoms they are hunted down for the healing powers of their blood.
Born with the additional DNA of a King Cobra snake, Kalder rules Venom City with an iron fist. His two lieutenants are the only men he trusts, especially after the recent death of his brother Killian.
Living by their wits Reese and his friends are slowly starving to death. So desperate that Reese attempts to find food in the outskirts of Venom City. Quickly discovered by Kalder the King Cobra takes pity on Reese and allows him to leave with food. Brought together a second time Kalder realizes that he’s found his mate and he will do whatever it takes to keep his anti-venom safe. The tables are turned however when it’s up to Reese to save Kalder. But, will he?
Author Jackie Nacht invents a complex, unique world with Intoxicated by the King Cobra. This brutal, unflinching time period is complicated and fearsome for everyone in one form or another. Frightening creatures with human souls fight for survival. It’s even dangerous for Kalder to show a softer side to Reese. An intriguing premise. Intoxicated by the King Cobra is a terrifying tale with heart. And fascinating.
