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.
When Sadie finally understands why the Saven walk among us, will it be too late to save her heart and the human race?
Sadie Owens lives life as a star, the lowest class in society. Living in the grunge of New York means that she doesn’t get to marry, have kids, or a life until she turns seventy-five, and by then it’ll be too late. She has two options: be one of the ten percent chosen to procreate in the outer sectors or be chosen to be part of the Experimento. The girl who doesn’t even fit in with her own family finally gets lucky and is chosen to be part of the Experimento, meaning she’ll be trained and sent to Thalassic City, an underwater world the government has created to deal with the overpopulation. While under water, she meets Logan. Meeting the mysterious boy is only the beginning of Sadie’s tumultuous journey—secrets will be revealed, promises made, and alliances formed that will change the course of her world forever.
First off, I loved the voice in this book. I had no trouble getting lost in Sadie’s story and getting caught up with everything that was happening, which happened to be a lot. Secondly, the story kept my attention far into the night; I had to know what happened next, who could be trusted, and what was in store for a country in ruin. The ending of the novel did not disappoint, and my fingers are already itching to get the next book in the series in my hands.
Sadie had a lot of growing to do when placed in the underwater facility. The only reason she had signed up for the opportunity was because she believed she had a strong lack thereof in the life she lived. Her family looked at her with judgmental and scornful eyes, and she needed to get away. I would have liked to know more about her father, and I hope to learn about his devastating decision in the oncoming books, as I feel his part in the story played a heavier hand than the one that it had been dealt. Her mother, a character mentioned fleetingly, also arises some interest in me. Since Sadie changed enormously from the girl that I met on the first page, how her family fits is bound to play an interesting role in the trilogy.
While there was science fiction, there was also a heavy dose of romance. Logan and Sadie started their relationship out as many teenagers do—through technology. One glance was all it took for them to fall hard for one another, but love did not come easily. Logan’s character kept me on my toes, and I couldn’t even begin to guess what would come out of his mouth next. I kept highlighting my favorite scenes with him and Sadie, loving every minute of watching them fall in love with one another. A whirlwind romance, this was one that stayed in my mind throughout the day even when I didn’t have the book in front of me.
Saven: Deception is another artful science fiction romance from Siobhan Davis. If you haven’t read her True Calling trilogy, it will be on the top of your list after reading this book, though don’t expect any similarities. Davis has done a magnificent job of creating an entirely new world, completely different than that of her other series. Breathtaking and adventurous, Saven: Deception is a phenomenal read that will keep you up into the night, reading until your eyes are too heavy to keep open.
