Saven Defiance by Siobhan Davis is the third installment in the Sci-Fi Romance Saven series.
” THE TRUTH ISN’T ALWAYS EASY
I’ve promised to protect those I love.
But someone is lying to me.
Will I discover the truth in time to save him?
With war looming in outer space and the Earthen government forced into hiding, the battle for ultimate world domination is only just beginning.
Having accepted her identity, Sadie sets out on a daring quest with her friends, which takes them deep into alien territory. Fraught with tension and danger, the journey is not an easy one, especially when previous adversaries become new allies and cherished friends become suspicious opponents.
As the heirs unite in a bid to restore peace to the galaxy, powerful enemies, determined to exact retribution,surround them on all sides. When hidden agendas and shocking revelations come to light, the fallout is massive.
Sadie’s love life is a tangled, messy affair. While one relationship is embraced forever, another spirals out of control, threatening to destroy everything. Determined to do the right thing, Sadie will fight hard to protect those she loves.
But there are some battles she cannot win.”
Compared to Saven Deception (Book 1), I could definitely tell the characters matured dramatically. The overall mood of the story has that tense, strong maturity atmosphere. Sadie puts the situation ahead of her own well-being which is creates a new dialogue for the book.
The love triangle aspect of the story is interesting. I mean, I understand why the triangle is overwhelming to Ax, but at the same time, Sadie could have been more strict about her decision.
We get to see more into both of their points-of-view which helps us to know more of the situation that was set through Book 2. And as readers, we could argue both ways. Sadie tries to handle it, but at the same time, it just drags on through the whole book. Siobhan does a great job in making the love triangle a non-teen-oriented one where the characters are leading each other on that eventually gets pretty annoying. It will be interesting to see how it develops further.
There is ALOT of betrayal and hard feelings in this book. The world is uncovering more and more which of course causes conflict. I flew through this book! I was constantly wanting to know what was going to happen next and Siobhan’s writing just drew me in, and this book is no exception. I gave this third installment 5 out of 5 stars!
