    1 thought on “Firstlife”

    1. "A Conduit is the highest type of General, second only to King. Conduits are rare and precious, powerful both here and there. They absorb sunlight from Earth—which is more than just heat and illumination—and direct the beams to the realm. There are whispers about you,” she says, only to go quiet.“Whispers suggesting I’m a Conduit?” Someone rare and precious? Powerful?Warning: Special Girl alert!This book has whiny special snowflake written all over it. Even worse than the main charac [...]

    2. DNF at page 149*sighs* Buckle up, folks, because this is going to be one long, gif filled review. Firstlife was one of my most anticipated books of 2016. Needless to say, I was a little disappointed. This book's premise was so interesting. Everyone in this world has a Firstlife, and they get to choose which Everlife to live in after they die? Hells yes! The two Everlifes (Everlifes? Everlives?) are at war, but our main character doesn't want to sign with either? Even more yes! And the cover! Jus [...]

    3. Such a cool concept but the execution was a little lacking. I found myself asking a lot of questions that I never got the answers to and then the novel turned into a story about one thing that really just made me lose interest. A classic case of sounded great, started off awesome, and then just went downhill from there.

    4. The first thing I will adamantly shriek is: this book is VERY unique. I felt a little bit like Afterworld? But Firstlife was much more detailed and complex. The basic gist is: your life is just a prequel and the REAL thing starts when you're dead. WHICH IS KINDA COOL. Multiple opportunities at life! But ultimately? The book isn't really my favourite. I shall tell you why in a second, calm your little hearts. And even if it's not a favouriteI still think it was really interesting and actiony.OKAY [...]

    5. Wow. The very last word of this book left me with a huge smile on my face - It was a moment I'd been hoping would happen!!After reading the White Rabbit Chronicles I can tell you this series is going to be much grittier, definitely raw and more mature (upper YA), with a major BAD BOY ALERT. The concept is intricate and genius. I'm blown away and so honored to have read an early copy!

    6. At first I thought this book would be a favorite. It had this great idea: our lives are short, but our eternities are long, so each person has to sign-up with the place where they will spend eternity. There are two choices: Myriad and Troika. Myriad is all about strength and winning. It is also in the dark, but there are parties and nighttime fun. If you are willing to sign up for Myriad, they will offer you all sorts of bonus packages to enjoy in your "firstlife", like fame and riches.Troika is [...]

    7. Five stars is not nearly enough for this book. Firstlife deserves all the stars in the world. I truly believe this is Gena's best work and I am not exaggerating. I love everything she writes, I'm a huge fan, but Firstlife was from another dimension, she surprised me again and again. This is a book you do not want to miss, trust me. It'll shake you to the core and you'll never see things the same way again.The grave is the endAnd I will never accept thatI have been set free from the chains that b [...]

    8. “The most destructive or constructive actions begin with a single thought.”This book really confuses me, I can't decide if I love it or hate it. It was kind of weird, but good weird. I think.

    9. Initial Thoughts: DNF - I just can't go on anymore. Unnecessarily complex, yet another world that didn't make sense, unlikable main character who refuses to sign towards one of the main factions for no reason. All delivered with choppy writing.---This review appears on Happy Indulgence. Check it out for more reviews!Going into Firstlife, I was optimistic about the two lives concept, where you have two chances to live. Myriad believes in wealth and reincarnation, that your first life is merely a [...]

    10. Very interesting premise, that had me entranced for the first half. Soon however this turned into one of the most disappointing books I have ever read. Talk about bait and switch. I loved the originality of this story but it felt “off ” a lot of the time. Nothing really meshed together, the writing I couldn't tell if my struggle to enjoy this was a cause of the author trying too hard or not trying hard enough. The characters were also supposed to be in their late teens, yet they had the ment [...]

    11. Believe it or not this is my first Showater book and I could literally kick my own butt beccause of it. To say the very least, I fell in love with her imaginative world, her endearing but tough characters, and the whole world she created and it makes me wonder why I waited so very long to try her.This book is a hard one to go into detail about without spoiling anything so I will keep this review short and sweet and stick to the basics. This is a series you don't want to miss out on. If you are t [...]

    12. Tenley "Ten" Lockwood has spent the last thirteen months of the seventeen years of her life in an asylum. She was sent there by her parents for not making covenant with Myriad, the realm her parents want her to side with in the afterlife. See, it's an accepted fact that Firstlife is simply a rehearsal for what comes after death. In your real life, your Everlife, you sign with one of the two ruling powers: Myriad or Troika. Myriad and Troika, deadly enemies, have been at war with one another for [...]

    13. ^ That Gif sums up the entirety of my reaction after putting this book down. Which is a thorough downer, because this book promised A VIVIDLY UNIQUE AND EDGY NEW WORLD and A NON-STOP THRILL RIDE and HOT GUYS. Oh, fuck that. Fuck this book. Fuck the characters. Fuck the gorgeously deceiving cover. Let's break everything down slowly, shall we?* A whiny-ass main character? Check. We have the pleasure of knowing her as "Ten", and my goodness, I don't even know how to describe her accurately. She's b [...]

    14. DNF at 60% I really can’t be bothered wasting my time reading about a main character who literally! thinks! in! exclamation! marks! and makes the most illogical decisions ever :)) I tried to ignore it y’all I really did but I just can’t, the main character irritates me so much I give up. I hardly ever DNF books and I honestly think this story had so much potential if the writing style had been a bit better and the main character more sensible 🌚

    15. An Electronic Advanced Reader Copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for review.Tenley or as she's nicknamed Ten is locked up in a mental asylum by her Myriad parents. She lives in a world your first life is just a pre-condition, where you must choose one or the other warring factions: Myriad or Trokian. Once a person vows one of the sides they are part of that lifestyle for all eternity. Both sides want her for she is supposedly a general in her second life. She meets two boys, both a [...]

    16. "Ten tears fall, and I call. Nine hundred trees, but only one is for me. Eight times eight times eight they fly, whatever you do, don't stay dry. Seven ladies dancing, ignore their sweet romancing. Six second to hide, up, up, and you'll survive. Five times four times three, and that is where he'll be. Two I'll save, I'll be brave, brave, brave. The one I adore, I'll come back for."This book has been the death of me. I can't even right now. It's brilliantly beautiful, it made my heart expand and [...]

    17. Dialogue/humor = perfection. I will admit that I'm still la bit lost on some of the events/world building (or maybe I just kept zoning out during audiobook?) but the writing was just so good I didn't care. This is the first time I've read anything by Gena and now I'm adding all her books to my TBR because she has such great humor in her writing -I can't even count the number of times I laughed out loud listening to the audiobook, just the perfect amount of sarcasm and snark. Oh, and the characte [...]

    18. Her FirstLife was only a dry run for her eternal life, a place called the Everlife. Tenley Lockwood must choose the realm she will commit to and her refusal to pick begins a chaotic journey fraught with death, blood, battles and deceit. Choosing is an eternal thing and Ten will not be forced to commit, no matter what, but if her heart gets entangled, will it color her decision? Two realms, the Troika and the Myriad battle for her soul, because she may be the deciding factor in the eternal fight [...]

    19. Wat een raar boek. Ik twijfel tussen 2.5 of 3 sterren. Dit was helaas niet echt mijn ding. Al maakt het einde wel weer nieuwsgierig.

    20. The DNF Q&A [no rating]:->Did you really give Firstlife a chance?Yes – I made it about halfway through before setting it aside.->Have you enjoyed other books in the same genre before?I’ve loved a lot of things from the YA genre, although I admit lately I’ve had less patience for teen angst in general. I haven’t read anything quite like Firstlife before, but it had vague similarities to these other titles, which I enjoyed (mostly):The Sweetest Dark - Shana AbeFirelight - Sophie [...]

    21. Я знала, что это плохая идея. Джена никогда не относилась к числу моих любимых авторов. Даже в число терпимых не входила. Познакомилась я с ее творчеством вынужденно, когда попросили помочь с редактурой. Но потом прочла про Алису с зомбаками и вроде как даже немного проникла [...]

    22. TJ's Blog: tjtimetraveltips.wordpressWithin seconds, Firstlife pulled me in. Within minutes, I was engaged. I found the premise to be refreshingly unusual. Firstlife is a full-fledged action story, with just the right combination of character development, witty dialogue, and thought-provoking content.The CharactersI was immediately intrigued by the three main characters, Archer (Bow), Killian, and Tenley. I loved Tenley’s quick come-backs. To Killian. To Dr. Vans. To everyone. She’s a quick- [...]

    23. Actual Rating: 3.5 starsI was supposed to rate it fully 4, but the ending was written poorly and the last 30 pages or so was kind of boring and repetitive, so I dropped half a star. -_-Proper RTC

    24. angelerin/2016/08So 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 soundsrange. Maybe a little too strange for me, but I knew that if Gena wrote it then it must be good. Right?#TroikaOrMyriad?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 th [...]

    25. DNF at 50%I loved Gena's zombie series and when I saw her and heard her talk about this one, I was instantly interested. Sadly, it just didn't work out. I liked Ten. She's resilient and snarky and refuses to let anyone force her into this important decision. I also liked most of the characters I did meet in the sections I read. I always enjoy Gena's characters and these didn't disappoint either. I struggled with the the world building. I wasn't clear on pretty much.hing. Everything came across a [...]

    26. When I first started to read this book, I knew it I would love it.This book is one of a kind, different than everything I have read so far.I absolutely loved the characters and how they are build, some I wanted to kill, some I loved it all my heart (Asher💕), and one that I wanted to hate but LOVE with all my heart too (Killian) and of course that's Ten, who I admire for the strength she got and how she could admitted to herself what she was feeling and of course she is my favorite character o [...]
