What would you do if a super gorgeous guy came to live with you because his parents were out of town for an extended work assignment? That’s what happens to Dominique Wells in Final Life when Farrell moves in. To make matters more complicated, Farrell’s appearance coincides with some freaky stuff that starts happening to her. Dominique begins having mysterious visions of a red desert and a menacing evil presence. And Farrell? Well, she can’t get him out of her mind. I’d say more, but I don’t want to give anything away! Suffice it to say, Farrell is very important to Dominique. And hot!

My Review:

 Every teen age girl loves hot guys and if they are nice besides, well who's to complain?   Dominique is irritated by the move from Elk Grove Michigan to Houston Texas.   She hates the idea of being the new girl in town mid-year....and life just gets weirder and weirder for her.   Her first new friend, Infiniti, is quite a character and introduces her to tarot card reading, the ouija board and Jan across the street and her numerology system.    Infiniti is on her first life, but Dominique is on her ninth and final life.   And she is marked for certain death.   Not only is she finding her days numbered, but the hottest boy in school is her new admirer and his competition is found in the form of Farrell (see above).  Her parents are watching over Farrell while his parents are overseas......and he is one HOT dude.   All is not as it seems and Dominique needs truth to help her sort through and save her own life as well as the future of the world itself!

Final Life is a smooth, fast read and it was quite enjoyable.   I loved the characters, Dominique and Infiniti especially.   They were certainly good together!   It would be hard to make a choice between a normal teen, like Trent and a paranormal like Farrell, but Ms Garcia took care of that very neat and tidy.   I appreciated that being settled.   And this could be a stand alone book if you never took it further.    But I hear this is only book one in the Transhuman Chronicles....so there is more to come if you desire it!   I think I can not wait!!
