Uninvited by Sophie Jordan (Uninvited, #1) [ARC REVIEW]


Goodreads summary: 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 IS SO GOOD!!! 2014 MUST READ! Once you started reading it you’ll want to finish it. I enjoyed it! I want more!

  • Davy reminds me of Tris Prior, the only difference is Tris is much stubborn and she doesn’t have a jealous bitch “best friend”. (R.I.P. Tris)

  • Uninvited – those who has Homicidal Tendency Syndrome (HTS) or the Killing gene. I think mostly they’re kids and teens that are affected. Discovered by Dr. Wainwright, he believes those who has HTS has a tendency to kill someone, they must be monitored. The Uninviteds have their own set of new rules. Those who broke them will meet certain punishment.

  • The balance between the romance and the action is so good. It kinda reminds me of reading Fallen Series by Lauren Kate. (I mean the vibe not the topic)

  • I wish though the “The Cage” part is more exciting, because the name itself is exciting. What s the Cage? Okay, uhm… It’s part of the a school where they put the Uninviteds. I don’t think they put them there to study. They put them to monitor them.

  • The tagline: “They say she’s a killer. One day she will be.”

Very catchy. Good job!
So…did Davy kill someone???  **grin show teeth**

  • The part where they put the “special” Uninviteds,I thing that’s when the real excitement started. It so cool!
