Final Life by Rose Garcia (audiobook)

Book Description:

Some pasts are doomed to be repeated. 

Seventeen-year-old Dominique thinks her life is over when she’s forced to move across the country during her senior year. All she wants to do is make it to graduation, and then she can move back to Michigan for college. That's the plan. That is, until her new neighbor pressures her into playing a mystical card game. 

And this deck is like no other. 

With one touch of the cards, Dominique plunges into a vision of a crimson desert inhabited by a dark presence with murderous intent. She desperately tries to convince herself it’s all in her head, but the images refuse to be ignored. And when the apparitions include hints of past lives, Dominique realizes the darkness is really after her. Not only in her visions, but also in her reality. If she’s to survive, she must discover the secrets hidden in her past. If she doesn’t she’ll be dead. For real.

My Thoughts:

Starting out, I wasn't certain about this book, but boy did it get good quickly.  It is the start of a series so there is some set up.  That being said, there is plenty of action.  I wasn't sure about certain characters, neither was Dominique for that matter.  She is a typical teenager, completely unhappy when she is forced to move because of her parents.  

That set up, I knew there was something more and something coming, but there were some freaky parts that I didn't expect at all, but completely enjoyed.  I liked her protector.  She did come across as a spoiled brat occasionally, but overall it was a great read.  I can't wait for the next one.
