Staff Reviews

“It’s Dad’s voice biting deep with words that will change everything forever: You have the kill gene.”

Davy Hamilton has a simple life, looking forward to college at Julliard and her relationship with her boyfriend. But, when a new test is required at her school for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome–and she tests positive, her life significantly changes. All of a sudden, Davy finds herself in a new school with no friends. Can she trust the other carriers she meets or will this be a journey she needs to take on own?

Suspenseful and exciting with lots of action and romance, it made me question my own identify and human tendencies. Perfect for readers of Hunger Games and Divergent

— Teen Advisory Board member, Jessie; Euclid Middle School, Littleton, CO


From New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan, Uninvited is a chilling and suspenseful story about a girl whose DNA brands her a killer, perfect for fans of The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Shatter Me.

Davy had everything—a terrific boyfriend, the homecoming crown, a bright future at Juilliard—but when her genetic tests come back positive for Homicidal Tendency Syndrome, she loses it all. Uninvited from her prestigious school, avoided by her friends and family, she is placed in a special class with other "carriers" who are treated like the murderers they someday might become.

Only Sean, a fellow HTS carrier, can relate to her new life and tells her that she alone controls her actions—not the code embedded into her DNA. But even if she can learn to trust him, can Davy trust herself?

Don’t miss the continuation of Davy’s journey in Unleashed, the romantic, high-stakes conclusion!


About the Author

Sophie Jordan grew up on a pecan farm in the Texas hill country, where she wove fantasies of dragons, warriors, and princesses. A former high school English teacher, she's also the New York Times bestselling author of Avon historical romances and the Firelight series. She now lives in Houston with her family. When she's not writing, she spends her time overloading on caffeine (lattes and Diet cherry Coke preferred), talking plotlines with anyone who will listen (including her kids), and cramming her DVR with true-crime and reality-TV shows.
