Buuuuut I'm going to keep you hanging for just a little longer while I give you a little background on the series...
The first book in the two-book series, the aptly titled Uninvited, is definitely a story you don't want to miss. I read it in a matter of days, just wanting to keep turning the pages for hours on end. It's dark and suspenseful but also filled with humor and honesty, delving deep into who we are, what we believe, and what we are willing to risk for those we love. Sometimes Davy's journey made me shiver in fear (and sometimes even cry, I'm not gonna lie), and other times she made me snort with laughter, but she always made me want more. I don't know how I'm going to wait until February to read the sequel!
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.
And now that you're hooked, here is your sneak peek at Unleashed...
What if the worst thing you ever did was unforgivable?
Davy’s world fell apart after she tested positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome. She was expelled from her school, dumped by her boyfriend, abandoned by friends, and shipped off to a camp that turns HTS carriers into soldiers. Davy may have escaped, but the damage has already been done. The unthinkable has happened. Now, even worse than having everyone else see her as a monster is the knowledge that they may have been right about her all along. Because Davy has killed.
On the run from government agents, Davy is rescued by Caden, the charismatic leader of an underground group of rebels. Despite Caden’s assurances that the Resistance is made up of carriers like her, Davy isn’t sure she can trust them. Then again, she doesn’t even know if she can trust herself . . . or her growing feelings for Caden. But if she doesn’t belong with Caden and his followers, is there anywhere she can call home?
Sophie was even kind enough to send along a mini teaser for you special readers:
I thought being labeled a killer and losing everything—my future, family, boyfriend, friends—was the worst thing that could ever happen to me. It’s not. Finding out they were right. Finding out that’s exactly what I am?
I AM SO EXCITED! Stay tuned for more from about this series as we approach the pub date for Unleashed. We'll be doing a Q&A with Sophie herself to celebrate the release...and who knows what else! ;)
