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.

Uninvited takes place a few decades from now, when homicides and mass shootings have become a major problem. As a solution, the government figured out a way to test people for a certain gene that shows them to be a future killer. This was such an interesting idea, especially because unfortunately, school shootings and other terrible things like this have happened. The people tested positive with this killer gene (HTS) have so much prejudice against them. The biggest question on my mind regarding this was whether or not this prejudice would exist and if it deserved to exist. A lot of these people with this gene were sociopathic and were capable of mass murder, despite there being a few exceptions, like Davy.
Davy was a character I liked, and I felt so bad for what she went through. The people in the system were terrible, and I wish the treatment had just been a lot better. Her tumultuous emotions were so easy to understand. When Sean was first introduced, I wasn’t entirely sure whether or not I’d like the romance. By the end of the book, though, I was definitely convinced about their relationship. They made a pretty awesome team ;)
Another thing that I loved was the ending of the book. It didn't end with the usual cliffhanger that books in a series seem to have. I’m still super excited to read the next book, but I thought the ending was perfect for the story. I’d give Uninvited 4 1/2 out of 5 flowers. It’s a chilling, thought provoking read with an amazing romance included.
