Mrs. Siobhan Davis has done it again in her new young adult sci-fi romance series!
Saven Deception by Siobhan Davis is the first in the all-new Saven series.
“THE TRUTH DOESN’T ALWAYS SET YOU FREE
I’ve fallen hard for an alien, but he’s harboring secrets.
Massive secrets that threaten the very essence of humanity.
How can I give him my heart when his race plans on taking my future?
Sadie Owens has been slowly dying inside. Bit by bit, piece by piece, day by day. Trapped in a life she hates, she relies on only one person—herself.
Despised by her family and betrayed by an unscrupulous government, Sadie dreams of a different life. When she is chosen to participate in the government’s new social experiment, she is ecstatic at the prospect of spending six months in Thalassic City, the shiny new city under the sea.
Immediately drawn to Logan Chandler, Sadie is captivated by the beautiful boy with the ocean-blue eyes. Logan seems to embody everything that has been forbidden, but he isn’t all he appears to be.
Confused over Logan’s true intentions and concerned when best friend Jenna starts transforming in front of her eyes, Sadie partners with newcomer Jarod in a bid to uncover the government’s real agenda. The truth is more shocking than anything she could ever have imagined. ”
This book grabbed my attention from the start. It isn’t as common for me to pick up a book and instantly be gravitated into the story from page 1, but with this book, I did. The writing style is very easy to read (along with Siobhan’s other books). The pages just seem to captivate me throughout the book. The plots were laid out and included many twists and turns that really surprised me.. in a good way! So much happens in the last hundred pages or so, but at the same time it isn’t too chaotic to where you’re confused beyond reach. (Yes that was an accidental joke 🙂 Hint: read her other series) There is a nice balance in her writing that makes her books very enjoyable and continue to make you, as a reader, want more.
I also enjoyed the characters. Sadie is a strong female character that doesn’t put up with much. She stays strong in her views which brings a small humorous aspect to the story. The main love interest, and yes there is love, but not in the triangle kind of way (THANK GOD!), made me very annoyed and frustrated especially during the middle of the book. When you get to this part you will know EXACTLY what I’m saying. The other characters are well drawn out. There are some I loved, some I despised, and some that made me have hope in the story. The characters made Sadie’s world feel real.
I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars. I can definitely see myself reading this book again in the future. I was captivated by the characters, story, and plot twists. The ending leaves on a semi-(not-really)-cliffhanger. SO much happens at the end that there is a great potential for the next book to be a higher rating as well for me. I can’t wait for the next in the series to arrive! If you haven’t read her previous series, True Calling, and you like her reading style, you are definitely missing out. So far, her books have all been fun, fast reads which is hard for me to find. I highly recommend this one!
