Blog Tour!! Part 1: A Review of Final Life by Rose Garcia

Final Life (The Transhuman Chronicles #1) by Rose Garcia
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: January 8, 2014
Publisher: FML Books

For Dominique Wells, nothing sucks more than being forced to move cross country during senior year. Angry and feeling alone, she thinks things can't get any worse until her new neighbor pressures her into playing a psychic card game. When she touches the cards, she has a vision of a red desert where an evil presence hints at past lives and threatens to kill her. 

Dominique tries to forget the experience, but the vision follows her, intensifying with each repetition. Plagued by fear and foreboding, she’s determined to figure out what’s happening to her. But she gets distracted when her parents invite a mysterious and gorgeous new student to stay with them and the hot guy from school starts pursuing her. If Dominique is to have a future with either one, she must solve the mystery of her past and put an end to the evil that's hunting her. If she doesn't, she'll be dead. For real.

Final Life is the first book in the Transhuman Chronicles by Rose Garcia. I felt a lot like Dominique through most of the story. She didn't know why she was being hunted by Tavion. Neither did I. She didn't know why she'd failed to beat him in the previous 8 lives, and I never figured that part out either. What was Tavion getting out of it all? Dominique didn't know, and he never told her when she asked. She has no powers that are known yet, so what makes her special? Why is she The Marked One? Everyone around Dominique has information except her. As a reader, I felt like I was let in on very little of this information. This was frustrating. I wanted to know more about what she was supposed to be fighting for.

There may be a love triangle building, although I'm already partial to Farrell. I wish Dominique wouldn't have pulled away from him so much. It seemed to me like she wasn't giving him a chance. Trent seems okay too, but something doesn't feel right about him. I don't think he's bad or anything or maybe he is. I don't know. I'm just not totally sold on him yet.

Check out my review of the next book in this series!

Rose Garcia is a lawyer turned writer who’s always been fascinated by science fiction and fantasy. From a very young age, she often had her nose buried in books about other-worlds, fantastical creatures, and life and death situations. More recently she’s been intrigued by a blend of science fiction and reality, and the idea that some supernatural events are, indeed, very real. Fueled by her imagination, she created The Transhuman Chronicles—a series of book about people who have overcome human limitations. Rose lives in Houston, Texas with her awesome husband and two amazing kids.
