So far I have loved all of the Gena Showalter books that I've read. So when I saw Firstlife I knew I would have to give it a shot. Even though the summary sounds...strange. Maybe a little too strange for me, but I knew that if Gena wrote it then it must be good. Right?
Well it is good!! The whole idea of Firstlife and Everlife is very intriguing. I think after reading this one I still want more information about Troika, Myriad, and Everlife in general. I'm hoping in the next book there will be even more details!! I'm sure there will be.
One thing that I really liked is the poems here and there in the novel that can be read down and up. I know that is random and such a small detail, but I really think that is such a cool tidbit. Something I did not think was a cool tidbit though is Ten's number OCD. That really started to grate on my nerves. In general Ten started to get on my nerves as the book went on. Which is ultimately what led this to be a 4 star book instead of a 5 star book for me. I will say that I really like both Archer and Killian. That was a major plus!
Overall I am not sure what I expected from Firstlife, but it is better than what I thought it would be. I don't think it's for everyone though, because it is a little out there. Gena Showalter is such a talented writer and I'm curious where she will take this story in book two.
I recommend Firstlife for Gena Showalter fans and for anyone remotely curious. I don't think the summary (or review) can accurately sum this one up without spoilers. You'll just have to try it for yourself!
