Review for The Lost Savior by Siobhan Davis - 4 out of 5
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
They came from another world to protect her. Now it’s her destiny to save them …
Tori King is a normal senior in high school. Head over heels in love with her childhood sweetheart, she is busy making plans for college when a chance encounter with an alien bounty hunter turns her world upside down. Now, she’s experiencing terrifying changes and developing supernatural abilities that leave her questioning her entire existence.
Then the arrival of four hot new guys at school has everyone talking—especially when they become fixated on Tori, following her wherever she goes. She can’t shake them off, and as they grow closer, she finds herself drawn to all four of them in ways she cannot explain.
When they finally reveal their true identity, and why they’re here for her, she discovers everything she thought she knew about herself is a lie.
Because there is nothing normal about Tori King.
And she’s about to discover exactly how underrated normal is.
This mind-bending alien reverse harem series is only suitable for readers aged seventeen and older due to language and mature content.
MY REVIEW -
Loved the premise for The Lost Savior, and the writing is great. It was a little slow in the beginning, but I really ended up liking it. Since this book is the first book, it needed to deal with getting the story set-up, so I'm really excited to see where this series goes in the next book. I don't read reverse harem books, which are books that have 1 girl with multiple guys because it sort of limits the connection from me, but Siobhan Davis is one of my favorite authors, so I wanted to give it a chance. The thing I thought I'd enjoy about the whole reverse harem thing, was that all these guys would be devoted to the one girl. I was a bit disappointed that this book doesn't quite have that, but I see room for growth with that issue. This is on the YA side of things, so the romance is fairly tame, but does come into play at times. Overall, I liked the reverse harem aspect, and it was great to get a couple chapters of POV from the guys. Tori is a small town teenage girl, who is pretty content with her life, but there's things she doesn't know about herself that could change everything. When 4 hot guys appear in town, she feels a deep connection with all of the guys. She doesn't understand the connection, and it's making her relationship with her long time boyfriend very difficult. There also seems to be some weird individuals out to harm her, so she needs to figure out what is going on fast. I love the Sci-Fi elements to this story, and there is some cool action scenes. Love stories with hot aliens! I would've liked less time spent at the school, and less time spent on the drama with some of her friends. That's why I enjoyed the 2nd half this book more than the first, more time is spent on Tori figuring stuff out with the guys. I liked all the guys, and I felt really bad for Jensen. I'm not completely sold on Tori yet, but I liked her enough. There's lots of interesting elements in this story, and I'm excited to see where it goes. I'm hoping the story changes settings, and I'm hoping that a deeper connection is built with the characters. Overall, I really enjoyed this story, and there's so many great things about this story. This story is really shaping up to be something very intriguing!
