I enjoyed Final Life, it was well-written and the story and pace was very good, making for an interesting read. I loved the characters, and was drawn into the mystery of what was happening regarding Dominique. I was right along with her, trying to understand the clues of what was happening to her and what everyone’s part was in this situation. I felt the small thrills when Dominique’s feelings were detailed for the protective and mysterious Farrell, I did feel a little irritation at first when Trent was brought into the picture more and more, because I had a desire to see Farrell and Dominique to remain together…but soon Trent grew on me, and I was right along with Dominique confused, but feeling pulled to both guys:)
Final life, had action, romance…but not so much it overtook the story or slowed it down; all was sprinkled through perfectly. I was so nervous at the final battle scene, which I will not go into detail, so to not spoil it, but I was on the edge of my seat. I thought the sentiment behind the white feather(because yes, I was stumped throughout the WHOLE book about that feather, and could not wait for a revelation;) so I was satisfied with the explanation and how all the events tied together:)
I enjoyed this and look forward to further works from Ms. Garcia.
