Goodreads Summary:

A Young Adult Paranormal Romance Book one in the Transhuman Chronicles

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.


The summary for this book sounded too intriguing not to read. I love finding something new and fresh. This book was really good. I enjoyed reading the story, getting to know the characters (Farrell), and being a part of the Dominique’s crazy senior year. The book was very fast- paced, it had me biting my fingernails in anticipation a couple of times. It is the good old story of good vs. evil with some paranormal, a couple of pretty hot guys (Farrell), a few nutting but interesting characters, many surprises, and a bit of action.

The story is Dominique, her senior year she is moved from Michigan to Houston Texas. Thrown into a new environment, Texas hot, Michigan not, and a new school. She makes a friend pretty quickly on Facebook and finds out she lives down the street. She joins for a party where she meets some pretty interesting characters and strange thing begin to happy. From there on out the weirdness keeps coming. She starts to a vision and has a pretty creepy interaction with an Ouija board. She soon finds out she is a transhuman, a being of light, a pure, and there is an evil transhuman, the tainted, out to get her and the new hot guy(Ferrell) that lives with her family is her protector.

The characters are amazing, Dominique seems like your average teenage girl from first glance. She had a life in Michigan and she’s very unhappy with the move, she complains, but she does what she can to make the best of it. She forces herself to meet new people and to make friends. When she finds out about being a transhuman she is mad at first for the secret then she becomes frightened at the thought of being hunted. She quickly learns something has to be done before she loses those she loves and learns to fight back. I really liked her and it didn’t take me long to grow attached.

The other characters are pretty cool too. Infiniti is wild, crazy, care-free, and a little strange. She was fun to be around. Trent is pretty hot and sweet, genuine. He has a great relationship with his grandmother and does the right thing when he can. My favorite is Farrell.

I fell in love with Farrell right away. The name may have drew me in at first, seems like a wild name to me. But what really got me was his personality and well he looks aren’t so bad either. He is quite most the time but when he speaks I was shocked, awing, or cracking up. He has some pretty good one-liners. He is very protective, I know he is a protector, but I could see it was more than that. He really cares for Dominique. I just love his that is all.

The story was really good. It had the normal paranormal romance going on with the thrill of the hunt as an added bonus and mystery and intrigue thrown in to the mix too. The end left me wanting for more.

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 Walker 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 about Farrell, but I don’t want to give anything away! Suffice is to say, Farrell is very important to Dominique. And hot!
