ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Rose Garcia is a lawyer turned writer who’s always been fascinated by science fiction and fantasy. From a very young age, she often had her nose buried in books about otherworlds, fantastical creatures, and life and death situations. More recently, she’s been intrigued by a blend of science fiction and reality, and the idea that some supernatural events are, indeed, very real. Fueled by her imagination, she created The Transhuman Chronicles—a series of books about people who have overcome human limitations. The first in this series is Final Life.

MY REVIEW

Final Life tells the story of seventeen year old Dominique. Dominique is a young woman  who after relocating to Houston, becomes aware of who she really is. All her life Dominique dreams of a Red Desert, where she dies numerous times, so with the new relocation from Michigan to Houston,and being away from all she knows plus  the resurgence of the dreams; she is miserable. Not too long after her arrival in Houston, Dominique begins to have  terrifying experiences, and her life is under attack; Dominique is not sure of what is going on when her parents call a young man to stay with them, the very handsome Farrell. Soon she and Farrell are inseparable, and she develops feelings for him, as well as the new guy she meets Trent. After several attacks, Dominique is finally told of who she is, that she has lived before,and that the fate of mankind and beings called Transhumans depend on her survival. Dominique discovers that her parents and Farrell are of these beings called Transhumans, and that they have been trying to protect her over eight different lives; and that Dominique is now on her ninth and final life. Soon, she discovers that an evil being, a Tainted called Tavion, has killed her eight times, and is ready for this ninth and final time. He desires to drain her energy and then the world will never be the same. Dominique has help from her friends Infinti, Trent, Farrell ,Jan and Abigail, all who directly and indirectly assists her in this battle. Dominique and Farrell’s whole desire is to stay alive, but Dominique is forced to surrender within three days time, when her parents lives are shown to be at stake;thus there is a final showdown between good vs evil.

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.

Go grab a copy!

Happy reading all:O)

Book Description:
Hollywood California, Swimming pools, movie stars… and now the risen dead
Hollywood can be a difficult place to grow up, especially if you’re Kristine Golden, a fifteen-year-old necromancer with a sworn duty to lay the risen dead back to rest and no desire to be in the movie business.
When handsome deadie Alex Romero swaggers into her life, Kris must keep her promise, despite her growing feelings for him.  If that’s not enough to give a girl a headache, a murderous zombie comes knocking at Kris’ door, rocking her world and threatening her family.
Can Kris solve the mystery of the rampaging zombie before someone else winds up dead? Or will the walking dead take over Hollywood and turn it into… Hollyweird?
THE ZOMBIE ALWAYS KNOCKS TWICE EXCERPT

The man coming up the block toward us in the hooded sweatshirt stopped directly in our path, about ten feet away.  The hood dropped revealing his face.  The hair on the left side of his head had been shaved off revealing tiny bits of bony white scalp.  Huge staples held his crooked jaw in place.  There was a large indentation in his forehead from some sort of blunt force impact.  His left eye was covered with a milky, white cataract, and the right drooped unnaturally into his cheek.

My breath caught yet again.  Standing before us was a zombie.

‘LEAVE US ALONE!” the zombie screeched.  Then he took off on a dead run and plowed into Alex with the impact a freight train.

Just great, I thought.  Hollyweird—where the dead come out to play.

Zombies aren’t what the movies make them out to be—slow moving, brain dead, brain suckers.  They’re the result of a raising gone bad.  They can be strong, and fast, and very dangerous.   Also, a bite from a zombie won’t make you a member of the living dead, although I’m sure it must hurt like hell.

The one that plowed into Alex was almost six feet tall and about seventeen years old.  He hit Alex with inhuman force, propelling him backward. They slammed into a parked car that seemed to explode on impact.  The twisting metal and shattering glass sounded like a horrible automobile accident.  The car was totaled, and Alex was embedded into the passenger side, like a toy soldier into a wad of Play Doh.

“Oh, God!” I screamed.

Alex’s eyes were closed.  He wasn’t moving… but the zombie was.  He peeled himself away from Alex and the wreckage.

“Zombie!” I called at the top of my lungs.  “I command you to tell me who raised you and what you are doing here.”

The zombie faced me, a puzzled look on his distorted face.  It dawned on me he hadn’t known I was a necromancer until then—not that it made a difference.  He wasn’t bound to me so he didn’t have to answer my questions.  I was bluffing.

“LEAVE US ALONE!” He screamed in response.  He started for me and a wave of fear rippled my gut.

“I command you to stay back!”  I called, but my voice was cracking, my words lacked conviction.  I took a few shaky steps backward.  The zombie continued toward me.

Just then the sound of twisting metal snagged both our attention.  Alex’s eyes were open, and he was separating himself from the wreckage.  He shed the automobile with the ease of a snake shedding an old skin.  He began advancing on the zombie.

“What’s going on down there?”  We all looked up and saw three men, all Johnny do-gooders, running up the block in our direction.

“Leave her alone,” one of them called.

The zombie looked from the advancing men to Alex and me.

“Hhhhh!”  Hot breath hissed angrily at us.  Then he took off past us like a deer, bounding up the block.  By the time the men reached us he was nowhere in sight.

“You ok?” one of them asked.

“Yes.  He… attacked us?”

“What the heck happened here?” Another of the men asked.  He was staring at the twisted pile of metal that used to be a Buick.

Before I could open my mouth, Alex launched into an explanation.  “My girl and I were out for a stroll, and he was taking a sledge hammer to that car when we happened upon him.  Guess it was some kind of vendetta.  And when he saw us he decided to add us to the list.”  The lie flowed from his lips effortlessly.

“Hey, aren’t you on that TV show?” the third man asked.

Alex smiled.  “The Beloved.  Yes.  You watch it?”

“No, but my girlfriend does.  She can’t get enough of you vampire guys.”

Any suspicions the men may have had about our presence on the street or Alex molesting me immediately vanished.  Alex was a bona fide Hollywood star.  I guess they thought all stars were boy scouts.  Where have they been?

Several minutes and three autographs later the men were gone, and Alex and I were walking back to the party.

“You told that lie like you do it all the time,” I said.

“I’m a dead person among the living.  I do do it all the time.”

That wasn’t what I was talking about, but I didn’t push it.  He seemed annoyed.  I guess being attacked by a zombie wasn’t an everyday occurrence for him either.

“If it makes you feel any better, I memorized the car’s plate number.  I’ll take care of the damage,” he said, his words softening.

“Thanks.  That does make me feel better.”  I wanted to hold my tongue, but I couldn’t.   “So, you have any enemies who’d want to send a zombie after you?”

“I don’t have any enemies.  I’m a lover not a fighter.”  The annoyance was back.

“Maybe you loved the wrong woman.”

“I’m dead.  I can’t love any woman,” he replied.  The words were seething with anger or pain.  I couldn’t tell which.

“He said ‘leave us alone.’  Who’sus?” I asked.

“I don’t know!”

He was getting agitated again so I dropped the subject.  But not without noting there was more to Alex than he was telling me.   A vindictive zombie had been set loose in Hollywood.  It was something I needed to look into along with the deadie from the diner.  My, my, I was suddenly a very busy girl.

Okay this cover is FIERCE! Luv it:)

There’s something in the earth deep below Elise Kavanagh’s territory. A shadow
is falling upon local demons to devour their flesh and harvest their souls. And
it’s coming for Elise next.

The Union has an easy way out. They want to
send Elise into hiding again with her former partner, James Faulkner. All she
has to do is surrender the territory and trust that they can protect the
ethereal ruins, the dark gate, and the city she’s come to know as
home.

Greater powers have other plans for Elise and her fabled power as
Godslayer–plans that mean surrendering her life and blood to the most powerful
demon alive. But if she descends, there’s no turning back. Once she gazes into
the abyss, it will gaze back into her… and Elise will be damned
forever.

ancient demon-gods, powerful magic, and general mayhem. It is the most recent

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi everyone! My name is Sara, and I write urban fantasy and paranormal novels as SM Reine. I collect swords, cat hair, and typewriters (which I do use for writing!). It’s a good day when those three things have nothing to do with each other.

If you would like to know the instant my next book is available, you should enlist in my Army of Evil! I send out free books a couple times a year and we have a WICKED cool secret handshake, but you’ll have to sign up to learn it. 😉 Check it out — http://eepurl.com/eWERY

A few fun facts about me:
– The #1 song on the day I was born was “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley, which means my life is a Rickroll.
– I have three black cats and one black dog, but it’s not an obsession, I swear.
– I am a full time writer these days, which means I will never wear a pair of heels to the office again. Viva la sweatpants!
