Review for Saven Denial by Siobhan Davis - 5 out of 5 stars!!!!
SYNOPSIS FROM GOODREADS -
THE TRUTH HURTS
My mother was right to fear me.
I’m an abomination.
And the world should be very afraid.
Sadie has been kidnapped by the Tor, the vindictive alien race who destroyed Thalassic City. As her past, present, and future collides, her worst nightmare looks set to become her shocking new reality.
A deliberate pawn in leader Griselda’s vengeful game, Sadie is horrified to learn the truth about her heritage and the destiny that’s already been mapped out for her. Refusing to cooperate, she risks paying the ultimate price for her defiance.
Love for Logan is her only motivation to stay alive. Saving him is the only thing that matters—the fate of the world depends upon it. While he may never forgive her, she’s determined to protect him. Until her dying breath.
Note from the author: This continues the story from where it left off in Saven Disclosure. This is not an optional novella but an essential read if you don't want to miss out on important plot developments.
MY REVIEW -
Another amazing addition to the Saven Series! Siobhan Davis is definitely one of my favorite authors! Saven Denial was so good! I don't even know where to begin, I loved it so much! It didn't even feel like a novella because so much happens, and the whole time I was reading it, I felt so anxious to find out what happens, and I am really looking forward to the next book. I hate waiting! The thing I love about Davis' writing is that her world building is so vivid, and I love the unique settings she creates; I can picture them perfectly in my mind as I'm reading. I love that she goes into multiple types of aliens; it is really cool to read about the different species. I love all the action and sci-fi aspects! I've always loved Sadie, but I definitely was loving her more in this book; she was thinking everything I would have been thinking in this type of situation, and she was really strong with how she handled everything. This whole series is just wonderful!
Saven Denial picks up right where the 2nd book ended, and I recommend reading this book before you continue on in the series because there is definitely a lot of crucial information needed, and it's an excellent book anyway! So, Sadie has been kidnapped by the Tor, and they are holding her because she factors into their plans to dominate the universe. Along the way, Sadie finds out some much needed information about herself and the situation, and I was shocked at the horrible things done to Sadie. Griselda, leader of the Tor, is out of her mind! I'm thinking she's so vindictive because there definitely has to be some type of heartbreak that happened to her to make her the way she is now.
So, there is sort of a love triangle started in this book, and although I'm not a big fan of love triangles, Siobhan Davis does them in such a way that I don't mind them so much, and the main reason I don't like them is I feel so bad for the person not chosen. Axton is one of the Tor, and I don't want to give to much away, so I won't say quite what happens with Sadie and Him, but I don't really feel like Axton is an option for Sadie. He felt a bit unstable to me, and I think he has deep mommy issues, and he doesn't quite know himself yet. He needs to get a backbone also! I feel the whole thing between Sadie and him is a Stockholm syndrome type of thing, and I felt like the feelings between the two aren't entirely based in fact. I really feel for him, but I am for Logan the whole way, and I feel like Logan and Sadie have been thorough so much, and they still manage to find each other. So sweet! I need the next book now!!!!! Please!
