Review: What a great book! It immediately draws you in and makes you want to read more! It’s a modern-day version of The Scarlet Letter. In fact, one scene in the book reminds me of The Scarlet Letter to a “T”. Some parts of the book are pretty predictable: of course the popular boyfriend dumps her, of course she becomes attracted to the cute HTS carrier Sean, of course she does something wrong that she later regrets. But, all in all, I read this book fast! I wanted to find out what would happen. I’m glad I took so long to read book #1, because now I can jump right into book #2!!
Summary: 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.
The first in a two-book series, Uninvited tackles intriguing questions about free will, identity, and human nature. Steeped in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s trademark mix of gripping action and breathless romance, this suspenseful tale is perfect for fans of James Patterson, Michelle Hodkin, and Lisa McMann.
