that says it all. I mean holy toledo boledo. I did not think Ms. garcia could top the first book in the series but this one does and than some. The ending and poor Farrell my heart goes out to the guy. Seriously after all him and Dominque go through for this to be the outcome jeez. Talk about bad timing.

This book picks up where final life ends. they are on their way to hiding when tragedy strikes and it is seen a traitor is in the mix or several traitors and let me tell you when you read this a

Ok guys if you haven't read Final Life, what are you waiting for? Go get it so you can get to final Stand quicker. Book one grabbed my attention but book two has my heart and emotions.... I need more, wanting to see what is coming next? I am literally on the edge waiting for more. I think book 3 will be epic.

Not usually a Paranormal reader but have found myself occasionally reading one. I found this writer through a fb takeover and knew I had to read her books. Imagine my surprise when I met he

OUT's Review

Not only did the covers of Rose Garcia’s novels grab my attention, the main character Dominique did as well. I immediately made a connection with her when I realized that she was a senior and was being asked to move away to whole other life of friends, people, places. Everything you don’t want to do when you are at that point in life, where you feel that you have just one more step to take before you reach that next level in life. I had a similar experience in life, where moving away

I think I did like this book a bit more than the first one. The action started a bit faster and it was good to see characters from the first book, as well as new ones.

I was quite intrigued by Fleet and the other characters' reactions to him. I'm not sure exactly what I thought of him personally, but I would like to see more of him and learn a bit more about his relationship with his brot

The journey continues for Dominique in another fantastic story in this series. There is more intense danger as the mysteries begin to unravel. The twists and turns keep you guessing as you find people you thought could be trusted are not who they seem to be. This book is just as riveting as the first and I look forward to reading more as this journey continues.

Final Stand is a great follow up to Final Life. This sequel contained even more action and adventure and some unexpected plot twists. The story was pretty fast-paced and I found the events exciting - especially the time travel portion. That was really cool, I have to say. Props for throwing that in there. This book contains a lot of mystery as well as betrayal, and Dominique doesn't know who to trust or who is really on her side.

I liked the growth in Dominique's character in Final Stand. She is

Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?

Everything I wanted to know in the first book, I found out in this one. I was pretty excited about that, plus the action just kept happening. Final Stand kept my attention completely with so many twists and changes... I couldn't read fast enough. Dominique doesn't know who to trust, and I didn't either. I kept trying to guess, but I was wrong each time. I'm not sure about the romance. Dominique seems to decide on a guy, but she still seems indifferent to me, s

So luckily I was able to review these books back to back because honestly I would have gone nuts...the bad part...I still have to wait on book 3. Holy crap! I have to wait on book 3. I need it so badly. The way book 2 ended. I am dying here. OHMYGAWDDDDD!! These books are AHHHHHH-MAZZZING!!!

Book 1 - Wow. It sucked me in and I was finished reading before I realized I was at the end of the book. And then I was like WHAT? In book 1 you meet all the characters and you become attached. Some you like

As Dominique comes to terms she defited Tavion, the leader of the tainted ones, her parents decide they must continue to moved and they must make everyone believe they didn't survive a horrific accident they will suffer. In order to continue protecting Dominique.

Little did they know that this trip will alter everyones lives. Secrets will be reveal, lives will be loss, friendships will be put to a test, and hearts will be broken.

This amazing story continues with the second book in the Transhuman Chronicles, Final Stand. I enjoyed this book as it took me deeper into this paranormal world of energy users.

As you thought Dominique had left her friends again they ended up being a key to her survival and the link to knowing her past. The characters took twists that you would not expect and you did not know who you could and couldn’t trust.

It is an amazing series and I can’t wait for the next book.

Book Two of the The Transhuman Chronicles was great. This one definitely had your emotions all over the place! The twists and turns and ups and downs keep me reading on. It is action packed and full of drama. You get more of Trent, Ferrell, and of course, Dominique. She is such a great character that people can relate to.

If you are not sure if sci-fi is for you, try this series, you will not be disappointed. It is action packed and will leave you wanting more from this author!

Dominique might have killed Tavion but she still feels punished as she is forced to flee from Houston and leave all her friends behind. Problem is she can still hear Tavion in her head so she still has a connection to the Tainted - then their car is ambushed and it becomes clear that someone close is a traitor. So she goes back to Houston and seeks Trent and Infiniti who are first lifers to get some help. However it is complicated between her and Trent due to her pull towards Farrell. So when it ...more

As they work to figure out how to solve this problem, they realize they need Trent which means revealing who they are to him. I love that Infiniti also becomes a large part of this journey.

Carla's Five Star Review

Final Stand picks up right where Final Life left off. Dominique has eliminated Tavion, so you would think that she is safe, but it seems that she is still in danger. She and her protectors are on their way to a safe house when tragedy strikes. Throw in a traitor or two, and Dominique's life is once again turned upside down. As her story continues to unfold, there is more danger and even more mystery.

I simply can't get enough of this series! I devoured this book and cannot

And so the story continues and one of the things i love most about the start of this book is that it takes off right from the end of the last. Dominque is on a mission and luckily she has Farrell, Trent and Infiniti. It's not good that Farrell has lost his memories which doesn't help them since he knows more than all of them.

This book is packed full of drama, drama and it is unbelievably good. Farrell's brother, Fleet comes into the story and my gut reaction is not to trust him. There's somethin

The first book of the trilogy, "Final Life" was okay but this second one was hard to put down! I have the third one and am about to start it!

I guess the first book in any series is difficult because you are working on getting the readers to know the characters. Since I already knew the characters, it was easy to get into the book and enjoy the story.

If you enjoy supernatural stories with lots of twists and turns...this book is for you!

Bring on "Final Death"!

Since I started this one I am now more than curious on this series so on to what I found in this installment. Dominique is still the girl that keeps you on edge as the race for her "life" continues. The suspense and drama in this one will have you thinking you are on one of those rides . You will be wrapped up in this one the outside will not matter. Many questions pop with only some of the answers setting us up I do believe for another one. ...more

Oh what to say.......taking off from the end of book one, we still find Dominique still trying to wrap her mind around her fated life. And along this journey, which could be compared to a frigging scary rollercoaster ride, she struggles each day with whom she can truly trust.

I don't want to give anymore away, as there is still so much to this story, which more will come in book 3. So you won't be disappointed, but be prepared to have the next book on hand, cause you're going to need it!

Wow.. Ok so this was another intense, edge of your seat book. As with the last, this book was very descriptive and keeps you informed on all fronts. The moving from time period to time period was so interesting and frustrating at times.. lol Frustrating because they had to do it not because it was hard to follow. Rose really did a great job keeping this story interesting and riveting!!

In this second book in the series, I was blown away that what I thought I knew was nothing. I kept learning I knew nothing. I would think I had it figured out, then Ms Garcia would lob another curve ball dry my head and there I would be again, back to the beginning.
I was kept guessing thru this whole book. I finished it in record time to num straight into book 3. #lovingit
