(Review) Final Life By: Rose Garcia

Hello! Today I have a Review for Rose Garcia's Final Life. Thank you to ATOMR Book Blog Tours for letting me participate in this tour! Please read the Blurb so you get an idea of what this great first book in The Transhuman Chronicles is about, so continue reading on down. Thanks for visiting! :) 

Blurb


Eight lives. You'd think Dominique would get it right, but she's failed every time. Now on her final life, Dominique must discover the secrets of her past before confronting the Transhuman hunter who wants to kill her for the last time. Farrell, a mysterious Transhuman protector, and Trent, a hot guy from school, want to help. But it's up to her to get it right this time—or she’ll be dead. For real.

Review

I was intrigued by this novel from when I first read the blurb. I think it was the concept of 'soul lives', which is explained in the story with other fascinating factors that all really blended well into the story. From chapter one, we instantly get a glimpse of something eerie and mysterious. The conflict, the main scenario, that threatens Dominique and others was creative and instantly I wanted to know more, so this was a definite page turner. All the characters were written really well; good descriptions that made me visualize what they might look like, and how they would act. Dominique at first feels alone, as she recently moved to Houston, from Michigan, and to top it off, it's her Senior year of High School, but all she wants to do is go back to Michigan for College. But she wont seem so alone as there are two guys (Farrell and Trent) that are suddenly in her life, and you'll just have to read how this love triangle plays out.... Apart from characters, there was also good description in the settings; I love it, as it made me feel I was there with the characters(s), so this was a movie in my head, from beginning to end! The writing overall was wonderful; there was a nice flow, and reading from Dominique's POV was great, as we are on this road with her, as she experiences and discovers things that she never thought were possible. This is the first book of a promising series, so I hope you read this story, as it's one not to miss! :)
My Rating: 4/5
My Audience Rating: Between PG & PG-13
