Blog Tour - Final Life (The Transhuman Chronicles #1) by Rose Garcia - REVIEW

Title: Final Life
Author: Rose Garcia


Nothing sucks more than being forced to move cross country during senior year. And Dominique Wells doesn't think things can get any worse until she's invited to a quirky neighbor's party. When pressured into playing a magical card game, Dominique's world goes from sucky to terrifying. She begins having visions of a red desert and an evil presence--a presence who hints at past lives and promises to kill her.

Plagued by fear and suspicion, and unaware of a family secret kept hidden from her, Dominique is determined to live. Together with a mysterious and gorgeous guy who's moved in while his parents are away, and a hot, popular guy from school, Dominique must seek clues to her past if she's to survive. That, and keep her emotions in check for the two guys she suddenly can't stop thinking about because if she doesn't, she'll be dead. For real.

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 books about people who have overcome human limitations.

So, this is going to be a short review, because I can't talk very much about this book without giving spoilers, and I don't want that.

It was like I was expecting and not. I mean, there are some things that happened and I enjoyed, and I thought that they were original and played nice in the story, but also, there were some parts that felt repetitive or too much drama. I don't have something against daily life or parties or adolescents' lifes. But I felt that, that part took too much attention the book compared with the main idea, with the main plot.

Plus, I couldn't connect with the characters, especially with Dominique, and this is kind of a turn off for me. And I had the feeling that at some point existed a triangle and I didn't like that. At all. And hopefully it was just a temporary thing. And also, can I say how D's parrents seemed form outer space? I mean their excuses and motives? Really?

To be honest from the all book I enjoyed the idea and the descriptions and some things that happened, but I wanted more, more action. And not just... YA. If you know what I'm sayin. All in all it was fun and very easy to read, but nothing memorable.
