Description: 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.
My Thoughts: Dominique is 17 years old, it is her senior year and high school, and her parents have made her move from Michigan to Houston. New School, no friends, it really sucks. She meets Infiniti on Facebook, who happens to live down the street, and who invites her to a party. That's when things really start to change. Ouija boards, Tarot cards, then visions she doesn't understand are more than she can take. She meets Trent, who is really hot and her parents end up moving in Farrell, who is the son of a friend, and he is super hot to. Talk about confusing. Jan, another neighbor, introduces her to the concept of numerology, and she finds out that she in on her final life. Could things possibly get crazier? The answer is yes. Her parents aren't what they seem and neither is Farrell. Not only that, Dominque has been marked, and if she doesn't get things right this time.....time is up....and not just for Dominique.
I really enjoyed Final Life. It was a quick read and had a very interesting paranormal twist. The whole transhuman concept had the whole Sci-Fi/Fantasy element going on, yet Rose Garcia has written it in a way that is both fresh and believable, with the classic good versus evil theme incorporated. There is romance, and a love triangle of sorts that is very well done. Dominique ends up rising to her calling and being a pretty kick-butt heroine. The story also ended well, which I feel is important in any series. This was an excellent YA story that is both intriguing and entertaining and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance.
