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.

"Started a little slow"
I thought it started a little slow, but it turned out great recommend to teen readers!
"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"
I've been wanting to read Sophie Jordan's Firelight series for a while, so yes.
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.
Tori, even though she's a horrible character. Rebecca Gibel really nailed the whole bitchy attitude she had going on.
Probably not only because I don't like to Muehleisen the books but it's definitely worth it so A second breed
When Davy Sean was forced to kill
No it was too long
I want a second super good book highly recommended
"Mix of Vanilla Sky/ Hunger Games/ Hollocaust."
Vanillasky. Hungergames. Hollocaust.
Definitely the Male lead.
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.
The group /gang mentality society is quick to take on when faced with what they perceive as a threat.
"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!
