Review: Final Life

Displaying finallifeKDPebook.jpg

Book Blurb:

Nothing sucks more than being forced to move cross country during senior year. And Dominique Wells doesn't think things can get any worse until she's invited to a quirky neighbor's party. When pressured into playing a magical card game, Dominique's world goes from sucky to terrifying. She begins having visions of a red desert and an evil presence--a presence who hints at past lives and promises to kill her.

Plagued by fear and suspicion, and unaware of a family secret kept hidden from her, Dominique is determined to live. Together with a mysterious and gorgeous guy who's moved in while his parents are away, and a hot, popular guy from school, Dominique must seek clues to her past if she's to survive. That, and keep her emotions in check for the two guys she suddenly can't stop thinking about because if she doesn't, she'll be dead. For real.

     How can you dislike a story involving a love triangle, a battle between good and evil, and the last leg of someones reincarnation cycle?
 Rose Garcia's Final Life was interesting, thought provoking and unique. An exhilarating read, a true page turner that I could not put down.
When faced with your own mortality what do you do? Do you give up and give in to what you believe fate has in store for you or do you stand up and fight. Rose Garcia weaves a beautiful tale about Dominique's courage to stand up and fight.
    The tale of the battle between Good and Evil is a classic one. We see the story continuously throughout the history of literature, but somehow Rose Garcia twists the tale and makes it her own. This is a completely unique tale about the fight between the Righteous and the Fallen that will captivate anyone who picks it up.
    Although the story is wonderful I think one of the most touching parts of Rose Garcia's Final Life is how she deals with the death and sacrifice of those we love. Losing a loved one is always difficult but how we allow their death to affect our lives can mean the most.
    When we lose a friend we can sink into depression. We can turn to drugs or alcohol. We can easily fall into bed with someone just seeking comfort and companionship. Or we can live on in their memory. We can better ourselves and fight on for those we have lost. We can fight the evil that is in this world that has stolen those we loved. And when we do that their death is no longer meaningless.

 This is what Rose Garcia showed me the most in Final Life. It's a message everyone, young and old, must hear.
