Killer Frost (Mythos Academy, #6) by Jennifer Estep Book Review. Last Book In the Series!!! Prepare to Freak Out!!!

ebook, 384 pages
Published February 25th 2014 by Kensington Books

ISBN: 0758281544

I've battled the Reapers of Chaos before–and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it’s going to be a fight to the death … most likely mine.

Yeah, I've got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic–and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side, in Logan freaking Quinn, but I’m no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike’s Champion, but at heart, I’m still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about.


Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good … or I am.

Book Review:

Oh My Goddess. It's always such a bittersweet feeling when series that you've read over the years and characters that you lived through the books say their goodbyes. It's sad even if it ends with a Kick ass freaking book like Killer Frost. This was the ULTIMATE ENDING and the very best to the Mythos Academy. 

ACTION AND MORE ACTION is the word that describes this last book in the series. Amazing, All Out battles that will make Gwen and her friends face a God "Loki" and pissed off Reapers that will do anything to kill them slowly. Everyone that we've met so far is going to come forward to help and statues that we've wanted to meet are going to make an appearance. There will be Numerous situations where loyalty will be tested and friendships will be put at risk. And Things that will take Logan and Gwen's relationship to another level and actually make them fight for each other. Vivid scenes and epic battles that will transport you right into the book! It was Perfect!
“Reapers,” Vic said in a low, bloodthirsty voice. “Finally, finally, some Reapers to kill. What are you waiting for, Gwen? Charge! Charge! Charge!” 
I knew exactly how he felt. “With pleasure,” I muttered back to him.
Yesss! You know all the riddles and artifact that we had no idea how they were going to turn out? All of that will be revealed and it will prove that Jennifer Estep's mind is Out of This World... All of the tiny things that made no sense will come together in order to help Gwen and her friends win!

Gwen, my lovely Gwen. Finally this girl can take a deep breath and relax... This book is a rocky road for her and her relationship with the Spartan and it will push her to her limits. But this is the Gwen we love, the Gwen we've seen so far and can't get enough of. The fighter and the one that never quits! She was amazing in here and this book elevated Gwen that i though was strong already to another level where she just blows our little minds away.


Logan, Daphne, Carson, Nickamedes and Grandma Frost's are the key elements that made this book so unique and the story so memorable. In here they fought, they bleed but they all conquered. And they all showed a side of themselves that i never expected to see. In the battles they've kept together and they all played such an important part in all the different aspects of the story that we cannot forget about them, even if we try.

I guess that Jennifer really did save the best for last! Killer Frost will leave you with a teary eyed look but also with a sense of pride, because this characters that you've seen grown over the years will have their ending (Some good and some Bads) but in the end it was all just as it should be and everything fell into place. Jennifer Estep promised and gave us the Best Book In The Series That We Could Ask For!

Beyond Shame (Beyond, #1) by Kit Rocha. O'Kane Gang Book Review

ebook, 351 pages
Published September 16th 2012 by Moira Rogers

more details... ISBN13: 9780988327801

All Noelle Cunningham has ever wanted is a life beyond–beyond the walls of Eden, where only the righteous are allowed to remain, and beyond her stiflingly restrictive existence as a councilman’s daughter. But only ruins lie outside the City, remnants of a society destroyed by solar storms decades earlier.

The sectors surrounding Eden house the corrupt, the criminal–men like Jasper McCray, bootlegger and cage fighter. Jas clawed his way up from nothing to stand at the right hand of Sector Four’s ruthless leader, and he’ll defend the O’Kane gang with his life. But no fight ever prepared him for the exiled City girl who falls at his feet.

Her innocence is undeniable, but so is their intense sexual attraction, and soon they’re crossing every boundary Noelle barely knew she had. But if she wants to belong to Jas, first she'll have to open herself to the gang, to a dangerous world of sex, lust and violence. A world where passion is power, and freedom is found in submission.

Book Review:

Freakout Mode! Beyond Shame is Sinful and Liberating all together. It's about knowing what you crave and fighting to get it without the shame. IT'S A HOT STORY! Never would i though to like a book with so many main characters but they were all so unique and badass that i couldn't resist. Trust Me, it will leave you begging for more from the very first page and then it gets better and better. 


The book Blurb and Cover tells you from the start that this book is going to be a Badass but you are never really prepared for what's on the inside. It's crude. It's Raw. It's HOT AS HELL. And it's a type of loyalty hard to described but that Kit wrote about perfectly. There is no place for shyness in here. All the Booze, Sex, Fightings and WIldness are portrayed amazingly always with a sense of danger attached. Beyond Shame is a book that will make even the craziest person blush. 

My brain is telling me that i shouldn't like Noelle and Jasper as much as i do but my body tells me Otherwise. They have practically no interest and they annoyed me badly but for some reason they kept me interested with their chemistry... It all starts as a bit cliche. The rich girl expelled from a protected city goes out into the sectors and gets drugged and magically falls into the arms of an O'Kane that protects her. Yup it starts like this. But then they start with the sexual chemistry and then the deeper feelings start to come up and we can´t stop reading.
She didn't have a word for it, but she knew what it was. Too much trust. A yearning for possession that went both ways. Hope that what you had would never change. 
Maybe it was love.
Lex and Dallas are what really gets this book going. They fight and they make up but they love each other and never actually admit it. Dallas is the leader of the O'Kane and he's in love with Lex but if he admits it then he has a weakness that others can use. And Lex just wants him to admit it and finally take her but he has to be the one making the first step. I loved these two! 
No, no use pretending, even to himself. It would never be enough. Not a collar, not a mark. He wouldn't be satisfied with anything less than all of her—mind, body and soul—and Lex would never give up that much control. They'd destroy each other. He'd destroy her, and that was the one thing he couldn't bear. Better to take what he could get and leave them both whole. 
Mostly.
There are so many O'Kane gang members that share equal parts in this book which i love because nobody is left out and we get to know the whole gang and their relations. Kit Rocha won me over with this book in a heartbeat.

Until the End (Quarantined, #1) by Tracey Ward. Book Review with loads of Zombies ahead!!!

Copy provided  by author in exchange for an honest review* 308 pages
Published January 2014

An outbreak of The Fever has taken hold of Portland, Oregon, bringing the population to its knees. The Fever spreads and kills quickly, but the dead aren't staying dead.

When her neighbor, Jordan, saves her from one of the infected, Alissa joins him in his plan to escape the city, the disease and the threat of a quarantine that will lock the living in with the undead.

What she doesn't tell him is that she has an illness of her own, one that plays tricks with her mind and makes her a dangerous companion. But Jordan has a secret as well, one that compels him to keep Alissa, a veritable stranger, safe at all costs.

As they fight for their lives and race for their freedom, they'll discover that what they truly need in order to survive is to stay together until the end.

Book Review:
“I will not leave you. Not for anything. Not for your good, not for mine. We’re in this together until the end. I promise you that.”
Alissa and Jordan just became my TOP survivors. I'm telling you, Until The End is a kick ass novel that's going to leave you out of breath and make you start planning a real good zombie survival kit... (With a Crossbow on it for badass reasons). Tracey Ward will completely zombify you!!!


I Absolutely loved that this characters say the word Zombie right away! Also, they're smart as hell and we all know how hard it is to find smart people in zombie books and movies that don't get themselves killed most of the time... Alissa and Jordan rocked it the whole book. She with a Crossbow and Him with a Bat. Can you imagine that? AWESOME.
It’s a sad state of affairs, but it seems that even with the coming of the apocalypse, the dwindling of the human race and society as we know it, there are actually three things you can always count on. 
Death, zombies and assholes.
No author wrote about Zombies in a way that actually made me wanna try it out. Well, Tracey Ward did. In here you have the real Slow old Zombies and then you have the Runners (which suck if you're hurt). Both of them are so Grossly described with the guts and blood and infection pouring out of them... It's unbelievable. You'll love it. Just don't read it after lunch... 

Things I liked about Alissa: 1º  She has a mental illness and a hard past which pushed her to be super strong when her meds were over or when the situation was bad. Yet, she still managed to keep calm and focus on getting to safety. 2º She's not whiny or the helpless girl that always screams for help. 3º She can kick some Zombie But. 4º She's compassionated but not too much...  I'm definitely her fan. 


Jordan was a little lost. We see him trying to protect Alissa always but sometimes i think he forgot himself a little too much. I also would have liked to hear more of his life, his family and even his sister because i think we didn't get to know him that well. Jordan is one of those guys that makes all the decisions needed to survive and isn't weak at all. Besides, if it wasn't for his pre-zombie plan they wouldn't made it past the first page. 
"Pluto isn’t a planet anymore, Twinkies are extinct and zombies walk the earth.” “If that doesn’t spell out apocalypse, I don’t know what does.”
Uncle Syd was like a dream came true when we finally met him because Al and Jordan spend the whole book trying to flee to his house... So when they actually meet and we see how badass Uncle Syd is, it's so freaking good. But i still can't wait to continue the next book and see more of this mysterious guy.
“Do me a favor?” he asks suddenly, taking a step toward me. 
“What?” I ask nervously, afraid he’ll say something about last night. 
He grins and lowers his face to mine. “Kiss me quick. Your uncle is coming back soon and he scares the crap out of me.”
I want to know more about how the infection really begun because we don't really get any of that. And i hope that if we have a Zombie breakout we'll still have internet and phone connection, so i can go online and see how you make bows as well. I loved this part of the technology not being cut off, it's so different from the other books....

Until the End is THAT Grossly good.

Wild Things (Chicagoland Vampires, #9) by Chloe Neill. HOT BOOK REVIEW. FINALLY!!!

Paperback, 368 pages 
Published February 4th 2014 by NAL Trade

ISBN: 0451415191

Since Merit was turned into a vampire, and the protector of Chicago’s Cadogan House, it’s been a wild ride. She and Master vampire Ethan Sullivan have helped make Cadogan’s vampires the strongest in North America, and forged ties with paranormal folk of all breeds and creeds, living or dead…or both.

But now those alliances are about to be tested. A strange and twisted magic has ripped through the North American Central Pack, and Merit’s closest friends are caught in the crosshairs. Gabriel Keene, the Pack Apex, looks to Merit and Ethan for help. But who—or what—could possibly be powerful enough to out-magic a shifter?

Merit is about to go toe to toe, and cold steel to cold heart, to find out. 

Book Review:

Wild Things has the Wow factor!!! So many new deadly supernatural species are going to make an appearance! Merit's and Ethan's relationship is going to have to prove itself once more! The Cadogan house is going to be twice as badass and Chicago is once more in trouble. Perfect!


“You are Cadogan vampires. You are honorable, brave . . . and more stylish than most.” He got the chuckle he’d undoubtedly wanted. “To that end, and to remind you who you are, we have something to share.”
Prepare yourself to go mental on this book! It's one of the best ones in the series so far but it was so small... I want more than 368 pages. Maybe it wasn't that small after all. But the story is so damn good that you read the book in two seconds and feel like shit once you do because then you have to wait another 5 months for the next one. 

Wild Things has a case of missing supernaturals and really strong magic mixed together. It's a freaking story that will leave you on the edge of the seat. Chloe doesn't even give us a moment to rest because four pages into the book and Boom the attacks begin. I say watch out for this because you can always sense the danger but are never really expecting it. Which is one of the things i love about Chloe's type of writing, always expect the bad even if everyone is happy and cheery.


But first things first. New supernaturals like Harpies are going to come out in the open and fight out vampires and werewolves... It gives the book so much action and added suspense because we don't know who's bringing this things forward. Watch out as well because Harpies are freaking bitches! 

Okay moving on to the HOT stuff. Merit and Ethan do have a lot more SEXY scenes in this book which is like super important mainly because i felt that in Biting Bad they were more focused on the work instead of themselves as a couple!!! And you know about that "vision" Gabriel had? About the kid with the green eyes? Merit is finally going to come clean to Ethan about that, so expect some sweet scenes... But no, she's not going to get pregnant or engaged!!! (EVEN THOUGH I KEEP BEGGING FOR IT and I'M SURE CHLOE IS JUST TRYING TO SLOWLY KILL US WITH DESPERATION... )... 
Tall, lean, and imperious, he’d been my enemy, and he was the opposite of the man I’d thought I’d grow to love. I’d expected to fall for a dreamer, a thinker, an artist. Someone I’d meet in the coffeehouse on a weekend with a satchel full of books, a pair of hipster glasses, and a tendency to quote Fitzgerald.
Ethan preferred Italian suits, vintage wine, and expensive cars. He also knew how to wield a sword, or two of them. He Mastered the House, and he’d killed vampires by his own hand. He was infinitely more complex and difficult than anyone I might have imagined.
And I was more in love with him than I’d imagined was possible. Not just infatuation. Not just lust. But love—complex and awe inspiring and utterly frustrating

Ethan is on the run now! Not because he wants it but because he has to for the sake of his house. OMG can Ethan become even more yummier? HELL NO! He's so much more thoughtful and caring to Merit in here... But at the same time the deliberated and Stubborn side of him is always on alert. LOVE IT. And the freaking Abs!!!! I would seriously kiss Chloe Neill for creating such a perfect character! Merit is still out for food though it's definitely not a big part of the book like it was in the previous ones but its still there and i love it. She still stubborn as hell and she's better at solving cases than she's ever been..  These two definitely blew us away in Wild Things.
“You are mine,” he said, with a wicked spark in his eyes that sent a thrill down my spine.
“You don’t own me,” I reminded him, arcing my body just enough to prove the point.
“No,” he agreed, his lips so soft, playing at the edges of my breast. “We own each other. I am your Master. And you are my Sentinel.”
Gabriel and the whole puppy community is so much more present and willing to kick ass for the Vampires. I even sense some really strong bonding after this. We see the paternal and caring side of Gabriel even more and Jeff is so happy with Falcon!!! But Brenda let me down because her food wasn't nearly as good in here...

We can definitely feel Mallory and Catcher working on their relationship and finally getting much closer. And you will not believe the Magic these two will work on! It's Awesome. One thing i didn't liked? JOnah was far too absent!!!! I WANT JONAH!!! 

Well, Wild Things is one of those books where you definitely will be yelling HOLY SHIT AND I SEEING THINGS?! The Writing is so realistic that it will put you inside the story! The action is cutting edge and The Suspense is going to Kill You! I LOVE CHLOE NEILL AND THE CADOGAN HOUSE!

Zombie Youth: Playground Politics (Zombie Youth, #1) by H.E Goodhue. Book Review and Guess what? Yup... Zombie Time.

Ebook copy provided by author in exchange for an honest review.
Published April 8th 2012 by Severed Press
ISBN 1475253850


What will the survivors do when everyone over the age of twenty suddenly dies in a viral outbreak? Worse yet, what will they do when the dead refuse stay that way?


A group of students are left trapped in their school as the adults they once relied upon suffer strange symptoms and die, only to return and feed. With no guidance or supervision the students are left to recreate society as they see fit. But not everyone shares their vision of the future...Zombie Youth: Playground Politics is the first novel in a new series following a group of survivors struggling to stay alive in a world where there are things far worse than zombies.

Book Review: 

Anything that has the word Politic in it is bad for me!! But when you have a bunch of young people in a world of zombies trying to remake society it's an eye opener... So add:  Zombies + Apocalypse World + Badass Students and BAM = Amazeballs!


The most important thing in a zombie book? Definitely the gory details!!!! In here the description of the zombies, of the killings are so disgusting and so awesome at the same time! The action? Pretty sweet... From the 25th page and forward is when the action begins and where you won't get be able to get your hands off this book until every single zombie is killed. It's one of those book that gets you on the edge of the seat and leaves you breathless every single time something moves... 

The plot? I wasn't able to connect with the characters all that well. I don't know why but they just didn't felt real enough for me. (Even though they were average teenagers) But that doesn't stop me from saying that they are pretty good. I mean, no way in hell a thirteen year old me would do a third of what they did in the beginning. So, you can expect a sick plot with big guns, and kickass zombie fighting skills as well. 

Though, i think that the story does have too many descriptions and sometimes drags on a bit, but hey even in a zombie world there is slow times... Asides from that? It has everything you could ask for.

Playground Politics is bound to bring new fans to the whole zombie scene and if you didn't knew H.E Goodhue before... well, you will Now!

Saving Quinton (Nova, #2) by Jessica Sorensen. Book Review with lots of crying involved!!!

ebook, 384 pages
Published February 4th 2014 by Grand Central Publishing

ISBN: 1455582751

 Nova Reed can't forget him-Quinton Carter, the boy with the honey-brown eyes who made her realize she deserved more than an empty life. His pain was so similar to her own. But Nova has been coming to terms with her past and healing, while Quinton is out there somewhere, sinking deeper. She's determined to find him and help him . . . before it's too late.

 Nova has haunted his dreams for nearly a year-but Quinton never thought a sweet, kind person like her would care enough about a person like him. To Quinton, a dark, dangerous life is exactly what he deserves. And Nova has no place in it. But Nova has followed him to Las Vegas, and now he must do whatever it takes to keep her away, to maintain his self-imposed punishment for the unforgivable things he's done. But there's one flaw in his plan: Nova isn't going anywhere . . .

Book Review:

All i know is that the first book was amazing and Saving Quinton just had to live up to the expectations... But, as it turned out it was even fucking better!! Jessica definitely outdid herself this time. My heart is still racing for the final word  written. It's Heartbreaking. We all knew that Saving Quinton was not going to be an easy ride, but i wasn't expecting to be this painful to see our Quinton fading slowly... 


In the previous book it was Nova that we saw spiraling down into oblivion because of pot and what got her out was Quinton's numerous attempts of telling her to leave that life. Now it's Quinton that without Nova and still with the guilt inside of him has given up on everything. Even his life. And i hate it.

This book is so raw... You see every single phase of the drugs and how they'll slowly destroy Quinton, Tristan and even Delilah. The dependence, the decay and all the dark secrets this world brings. It's sad. Even though you know it's bound to happen. It's literally a book that will drive you insane, mad and completely helpless. 

I just adore Nova. Such a courageous girl that has been through the most painful things yet still never gives up on trying to save Quinton. NO matter if he tells her that he does not want to be helped and NO matter the trouble she'll get herself into. She's brave as fuck. And if we saw a junkie before, now she's healed and we see the tough girl she always was. Nova was the one thing that kept Tristan and Quinton of dying out on the streets. It was her that went looking for them. It was her that showed that she cared enough to keep returning. It was her that made their parents come to a good sense and help their kids... All of this whilst still dealing with her own problems. Without her this book would be lost. 
I need to see him now. Need to look at him. Need to save him. Somehow.
Quinton is the worst case of them all. He still sees himself as guilty of his girlfriend's death and he blames himself for that every time he takes a hit or does a line. The whole book is his falling down and nearly death. I hated this book for that. Because the guy we loved and saw in the first book is completely gone now. He's empty and i just hope that the next book can help him more. 
That’s how it should be. She should be away from me and this shitty mess that’s supposed to be a life, because I’m too much of a pussy to fully give up, die, finally just take that last step and end my life, instead of slowly doing it. Finally dose my body up with so many drugs that my heart will stop beating and for good this time, in the dark, where no one can save me.
I always loved Tristan and i always hated that Nova forgot about him when it came to helping. But we finally see something good for him because after lots of death threats and so many bad situations we see him get something good. He was always a character that was always hidden behind the main ones, but once he gets his time he's the best thing there is. I love him and i really want to see him with Nova.

Finally Saving Quinton proves us that their parents are not such scumbags after all. They may be a little but at least they're trying to redeem themselves a little bit. 

I am completely in love with Jessica Sorensen... She's the BEST! Now i just have to find a way to wait for the next freaking book. Ugh.

Addicted For Now (Addicted, #2) by Krista and Becca Ritchie -- Book Review + Quotes --

ebook, 488 pages

Published November 30th 2013 
ISBN13 9780989339230



He's addicted to booze. She's addicted to sex...staying sober is only half the battle.

No. More. Sex.

Those are the three words Lily Calloway fears the most. But Loren Hale is determined to be with Lily without enabling her dangerous compulsions. With their new living situation—sleeping in the same bed, for real, together—Lily has new battles. Like not jumping Lo’s bones every night. Not being consumed by sex and his body.

Loren plans to stay sober, to right all of his wrongs. So when someone threatens to expose Lily’s secret to her family and the public, he promises that he’ll do anything to protect her. But with old enemies surfacing, Lo has more at stake than his sobriety.

They will torment Lily until Lo breaks.


And his worst fear isn’t relapsing. He hears the end. He sees it. The one thing that could change everything. Just three words.

No. More. Us

Book Review:  

No. More. Us. AFTER THIS SENTENCE i had to get my hands on this. FAST! Lo and Lilly now have become my own addiction. If the first book was all about us knowing their vices and seeing them falling to it now it's all about getting them better and understanding that they're stronger together than with their addictions. It's perfection in 488 pages. 

Finally a lot of secrets are going to come out. A lot of family bonds will be made and many more will be broken. This is a rollercoaster of emotions!!! There is something happening at all times and every chapter is more exciting than the previous one. It's a vicious circle once you start reading this because then you can't stop!!! 
He’s a lifeline I cannot quantify or articulate. I depend on him more than any girl should depend on a boy, but he’s been the backbone of my life. 
Without him, I will fall.

As you know, someone will threaten to expose Lilly's secret... And i can tell you right now that not even in a million years you'll guess who it is. I both loved and hated this. I loved it because it added so much tension and anger to the story. But Hated it because it made Lilly relapse and Lo almost ruining his life. 

Lilly is the sex addict. Well, not anymore. After seeing Lo making a change in his life she decided to try to get better as well. But if Lo can take a pill to keep him from drinking, there's nothing that can keep Lilly from the male species... This is the big Problem. The Trust. Lilly doesn't trust herself to stop and Lo doesn't trust her as well. Slowly she will be denied what she craves and sex can only happen with a few limitations that her therapist wrote on a paper. Which will keep Lilly freaking out more and more. But, when her secrets gets on the tabloids the real problem begins... And then there will be relapses and a lot of crying and begging. And we also will finally understand where this addiction came from.  This book may be tough on Lilly but it's also the one where we see her more happy and actually enjoying life without the sex and constant worry, she also starts to form a real bond with her sisters and family. 


Lo is the alcohol addict. He's finally going to take his life and do something good with it. Like, helping Lilly and working in their relationship. I loved seeing him here than in the previous book. He's just so much more relaxed ever since he started not drinking but he definitely has many more battles ahead. This book is also not going to be easy on him. His relationship with his father was something i was really interested in seeing more of, and in here it developed and we actually saw his dad making an effort for his kids. His problems with his mother, which she will appear and we will get to meet the her (MAJOR BITCH). And last but not least, the development of his relationship with Ryke which will get so darn cute!!! LO is so much more approachable. Well, he still has something to say or to insult every second but in comparison with the first book he's actually trying now.... 
We are not each other’s first wants and needs. I am second to her. And she is second to me. I want that to change.
(...)
I think the six of us—we’re all strong. We’re each just a different kind of strong. But we all have a different kind of weak too. And I’m figuring out how to bottle my weakness to help them all.   
I’m not going to be the villain of my own story. That shit is done.

Connor and Rose getting a book of themselves? So in my to read NOW list. But in here their relationship could have been mentioned a bit more and i would loved so have seen more of them in general. Connor is still the same guy ever but we can see much more of himself and even Rose showed us a bit more of her personality.They are so cute together and the fights just make it all better ( even if it is over chess) !!! I guess i have to read their book...
If I marry Lily, I am easily going to be the worst son-in-law. 
And then I pale at the idea of Connor and Rose. 
Connor Cobalt cannot marry Lily’s sister. He’ll set unattainable standards that I will never be able to meet.
Ryke is the wall to support everyone and even with his wits and bad humor he just can't help but helping Lilly. I didn't liked him at all in the first book, but look at that!!! I kind of like him now! This book did a miracle. But he did an awesome job overall in here. I think i only started liking him more because of his relationship with Lo and the depths he would go to protect him...

All of this is a damn difficult rocky road with millions of little bumps... It's THAT Messy. But Krista and Becca did a wonderful job delivering us another brilliant book in this amazing series that spice up our rainy days. I seriously can´t get enough of Lilly, Lo, Rose, Ryke, Connor and the rest of the crew.

Uninvited (Uninvited, #1) by Sophie Jordan. BOOK REVIEW. I'm about to HTS someone!!!

Hardcover, 384 pages
Published January 28th 2014 by HarperTeen

ISBN: 0062233653

When Davy Hamilton's tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS)-aka the kill gene-she loses everything. Her boyfriend ditches her, her parents are scared of her, and she can forget about her bright future at Juilliard. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life. Davy wants to trust him; maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems. Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.






Book Review: 

It's enough to say that i'm speechless? I guess not. But that is the only way i can describe my feelings whilst reading Uninvited.  Sophie Jordan just gave us a story with the perfect blending of chair-gripping suspense, heart racing action and the most unpredictably predictable romance. This is as good as it gets and it's just the first book!!
I had all these dreams to become something. Someone. 
No one ever said I couldn’t. 
No one ever said killer.
It all starts with HTS- the freaking kill gene. Did i mention this is a genius idea? I loved this concept of being able to tell if a person has murderous tendencies just by doing a blood test. But, of course every condition has it's fails. Just because a person is going to kill doesn't mean it's going to be in a fair situation of not. So, that really added all the unfairness of being targeted as one of the carriers and never in her life having done anything wrong. (Like Davvy)  

This book had me crying, laughing and screaming in panic, injustice and hate!! It just makes all of your emotions boil and because of messing with free will and a lot of injustice, it makes it ten times harder. Sophie Jordan wrote this story in such a captivating way, cultivating all the characters slowly and working them out to us. She introduced them and always had us knowing bits and pieces of their personality and past so that we could relate more.  From the most innocent girl to the most murderous guy i loved every single one! 

Davvy is just that character you would never have pointed out has having this syndrome. She's the perfect type. Perfect family, perfect boyfriend (WHO IS A MASSIVE IDIOT) and is gifted with music by being able to play almost every instrument immediately.  But you know what? Because she was so predictably perfect it was even awesomer when she found out about the syndrome and started kicking all the big boys asse's!! She rocked the HTS, never settling for what other people told her that she could be and instead aiming for something of her choosing. She is in charge of her future and no one else. But because she's a badass means that she will get her butt kicked loads of times, so expect some blood and sweat!! 
Walking into my bedroom, I can’t help thinking that this is my life now. No one to trust. No friends. A life of silence broken only with music.

 Because I won’t be a target. I won’t be the puny one that needs Sean and Gil looking out for me. If I’m that person, I’ll never make it in this program. I’ll never be the person I’m meant to be. I’ll be the mindless monster the DNA test says I am. And that can’t be right. I’m not that. I’m not.
The romance between Davvy and Sean starts out very slowly, building itself until they actually begin being able to stand near each other. It's not a relationship formed out of casualty. It's formed on injustice and courage. The best kind, in my opinion. They are intense and the fact that they only kiss almost in the end of the book did not bother me at all because the feelings are all there! 
Sean looks at me intently. “I can’t be here every minute.” 
Meaning he can’t be here every minute for me. And that infuriates me. “I don’t need you to be.” I start flinging trash onto my tray. 
“Davy.” His hand snatches hold of mine. I feel the hard imprint of each finger on my flesh. “We need each other.”

 Somehow, Sean makes me forget. And remember. A dangerous combination when I’m only supposed to be looking ahead to the future.
Sean is the Bad Boy that no one wants to mess with. This is the time for everyone to roll their eyes, but hear me out first!! He may be the typical type but once you get to know him you'll see that he's not that easy to crack. He's not the bad boy that instantly gets all smiley and shit. No, he's been branded as a killer and he wants to do anything to prove that he is anything but. So since the moment Davvy proves herself to him he takes it upon himself to protect her. Because he sees the fight in her, a fight that he though he lost many years ago.  This Boy will win you over in a heartbeat. Every single bit of him makes an worth remembering character. He's scary and mean, but once he likes you he's the best friend you could get! 
“You have more to lose than me.” He shrugs one shoulder. “I was a kid when I learned I was a carrier. I was already parentless. Poor. No future. Hard to hit bottom when you’re already there.” His mouth flattens into a grim line. “I was used to being nothing.” 
A nothing who showed up here today when I needed someone most. 
A nothing who marched into the bathroom when Brockman cornered me. 
A nothing who picked me up when I was stranded and out past curfew. 
A myriad of responses rush to my lips. “You’re not nothing.” You’re here.
Gil may be a small geeky guy but he's got the courage many bigger guys wished for! I really want much more of his abilities in the next book. I wished we could have met Coco better because she was mysterious and i did not understood her story all that well. 

Uninvited is going to leave you hanging in the final. It's fast and full of action. Sophie Jordan kicked some serious ass! And the fact that there will be only one more book makes it all THAT much more interesting.
