The Scarlet Letter meets Minority Report in bestselling author Sophie Jordan's chilling new novel about a teenage girl who is ostracized when her genetic test proves she's destined to become a murderer.

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.

This story is a great start in a series that I’m excited to read!

Plot: This plot is amazing! I can’t even begin to describe how beautifully and captivating it was. Just with the first chapter alone, the reader is hooked till the end. It builds up nicely with the hostility towards people with the kill gene. It just ahhhhhh! So amazing!!!

Love/Friendship: Now in this area of the story be prepared to be riled up. I don’t think I have even known people to turn so quick. The ugliness of these people who were her so called friends. It is another part that is well written and really easy to understand.

Ending: The ending of the book is fitting. Just perfect. It leaves the reader hanging on for another adventure. I can’t stop thinking about the ending and where it could go. The possibilities are endless!

Stop whatever you are doing and go read this book. An efficiently well told story that any reader can enjoy, Uninvited is amazing! A sharp plot that keeps the reader in their seat, Ms. Jordan’s driven characters are well developed with much action. An energetic start that is tense and well structured, Uninvited is mind blowing!

I give it 5 BITES!


Happy Reading!
