Summary(from Goodreads):
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.

Lately I have been in kind of a reading slump. It’s not that I have been reading bad books, because I haven’t, but I just haven’t really gotten into the last few books that I have read. They just took me a lot longer than normal to get through. But I think I am officially over my reading slump! I’m pretty excited about this, and I’m also pretty excited about Final Life. It was such a great read! I thought the pacing was perfect, the characters were well developed and the story-line was really intriguing. 

I think the real star of Final Life was Dominique. She was relatable, smart and intuitive. She was accepting of the supernatural but also a touch skeptical and questioning. She was a little stubborn and shy, but it rounded out her personality well, in my opinion. Farrell, Trent, Jan and Infiniti rounded out the cast of characters in Final Life and I really liked them all. We got to know Trent more than Farrell, which kind of bummed me out. Trent is a great guy, but I wanted to really get to know Farrell, and learn more about his thoughts and feelings. I think there is a really good chance of seeing more of him in book 2, so I can’t wait for that! 

I kind of wish we saw a little bit more of Infiniti and Dominique’s friendship. At one point Infiniti said that Dominique was her best friend and she thanks her for their friendship. It was a really nice moment, but we didn’t really get to see too many “best friend moments” throughout the book. I would have liked to see a little bit more of that as a backstory. 

Overall, Final Life was such an excellent read. I read the book pretty quickly and I was left wishing I had book 2 in my possession so I could read it right away. I can’t wait to see more of the Transhuman saga unfold. I am really interested in learning more about them. The writing is great, and the plot is even better. This is a series to look out for. 

5/5 Gavels
