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.
The world that Jordan creates is intense. I know I wouldn’t like to be judged based on a DNA test. But that’s what happens, and the people that have HTC are treated like they have the plague. Davy has a hard time getting situated with her new life, and the ugliness it can involve.
I love Davy’s character. She’s smart, talented, and does not want to believe she’s capable of being a killer. She is so strong for having to deal with pretty much everything on her own. She also learns not to judge others, especially since she’s feeling the force of that.
