Sara's Review:I've been a fan of fantasy, urban fantasy and paranormal books for several years now, and I think that's part of what drew me in instantly to the book Final Life by Rose Garcia â the first book in the Transhuman series. I thought the ideas and concepts she used were unique, and the paranormal elements were great. I can't think of another book that I've read that has used something quite like what was used in this book as far as multiple lives and humans that are something more than human. From chapter one, there's a slow building of suspense as something out of the ordinary happens at a party, which terrifies Dominique. This piqued my curiosity, and it made me want to read more as she learned more over time about who she was and what was going on. The reactions she displayed felt real as well...from disbelief and denial at first to acceptance of what was taking place.
Dominque, as a character, was one that I definitely liked. I could understand her hesitance to accept what was going on at first. I also thought the secondary characters were developed well. The one that I grew to like the most were Trent, Jan and Farrell.
Final Life, as a book, doesn't end on a cliffhanger, but it is the first book in a series. Having read it, I'm interested in reading the second to see how the story progresses.
I recommend this book to anyone who like paranormal or urban fantasy books. I give it a rating of 4/5 platypires.

âDominique, please. Hear us out,â Dad said.
âNo! You hear ME out! You brought me to this stupid city, and I hate it here! Everything about this place sucks, and now, because of you, Iâm crazy!â Tear trickled down my face, and I wiped them away fast. âOkay? Fucking crazy! And itâs all your fault!â
Instantly I bit my lip because I regretted my words, but they were out already. Besides, they needed to know how pissed I was.
Dad paced the room. âYou have every right to be upset, Dominique. We never meant for any of this to happen.â
I didnât even notice Farrell at my side until he took my hand. âDominique, I told you. Youâre not crazy.â
My head began to swoon. My knees buckled. Every time I was near Farrell, a funny feeling came over me. Sometimes it was a subtle dizziness, other times a tingle throughout my body, but always the feeling warmed me. Calmed me. And seemed so natural and familiar.
âWhat are you doing to me?â I whispered.
