Publisher's Summary

You can't change your DNA…even when it says you're a murderer.

When Davy tests positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome, aka "the kill gene," she loses everything. Once the perfect high school senior, she is uninvited from her prep school and abandoned by her friends and boyfriend. Even her parents are now afraid of her - although she's never hurt a fly. Davy doesn't feel any different, but genes don't lie. One day she will kill someone.

Without any say in the matter, Davy is thrown into a special class for HTS carriers. She has no doubt the predictions are right about them, especially Sean, who already bears the "H" tattoo as proof of his violence. Yet when the world turns on the carriers, Sean is the only one she can trust. Maybe he's not as dangerous as he seems.

Or maybe Davy is just as deadly.

Grabbed me from the first page.

I don't usually write reviews, but I had to on this book. I started reading Sophie Jordan with her Firelight series. I really liked them so when this book came out I thought cool, I have to give that a read. I was not disappointed, this book had me from the very start. I really identified with Davy, I felt her agonies. Sophie truly brought Davy's character to life for me I felt transported into the story. I cried for Davy even before she could cry for herself. I loved her courage and toughness. I love that even after everything that was done to her she kept her humanity. I can't wait for the second book in the series!

Mix of Vanilla Sky/ Hunger Games/ Hollocaust.

If you could sum up Uninvited in three words, what would they be?

Vanillasky. Hungergames. Hollocaust.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Definitely the Male lead.

What does Rebecca Gibel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I like how it is a realistic portrayal of what could actually happen the3 way that society Is going. We are repeating past mistakes just thinking that we are more intelligent about how we do it now.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The group /gang mentality society is quick to take on when faced with what they perceive as a threat.

Scary in the most realistic way possible!

This book had me engrossed from the moment I read the synopsis. This subject matter is something that could easily be true... could even become true in the future. The possibility of being singled out because of a single code in your DNA and being outcasted from society is an all-too realistic thought. It hits deep in your core because science is so evolved that you know it's just around the corner. Davy is every girl you know. Shawn and Gil every boy. The emotion, the character development, the world building... Absolutely riveting. Read this book. You won't regret it. Oh, and the author's note? Don't skip it.

Interesting and unique

Would you try another book from Sophie Jordan and/or Rebecca Gibel?

I've been wanting to read Sophie Jordan's Firelight series for a while, so yes.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The killer gene and how individuals with the gene were treated was the most interesting. The least interesting was Davy's whining about her being better than everyone else.

Which character – as performed by Rebecca Gibel – was your favorite?

Tori, even though she's a horrible character. Rebecca Gibel really nailed the whole bitchy attitude she had going on.

Was Uninvited worth the listening time?

Yes.

Narration let it down

I liked the book, the story was good. The narration in this case really let it down though. It didn't feel young, the main character didn't feel engaging or vulnerable the way she did in the written version.
It's a great YA story, and I enjoyed the whole written series. I won't however be purchasing the following audiobooks in the series. But I'm fussy with narration I think.

Interesting!!

Would you listen to Uninvited again? Why?

I would listen to it over and over again! It's really interesting & pretty heavy story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Chapter 28 is my favourite.
Not to spoil the story for readers who have not read it yet. All I can say is finally!! Long anticipated after waiting for it to happen on every chapter.
Chapter 30 - 31 (2nd favourite).
.......after all that happen. At last it slows down but .....

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

My reaction was crazy. I cried a lot because of all that happen to Davy.

Any additional comments?

I will assume there will be a continuity to the story. 2nd book to know what will happen to the survivors.
