This is my stop during the blog tour for Destiny Rising by Siobhan Davis. This blog tour is organized by Lola’s Blog Tours. This series contains 3 books: True Calling (True Calling #1), Beyond Reach (True Calling #2) and Destiny Rising (True Calling #3). And two novella’s: Lovestruck (True Calling #0.5) and Light of a Thousand Stars (True calling #2.5).
Every choice has a consequence.
Once again, the world is on the brink of momentous change. As revolutionary organization Saoirse prepares to battle the government for control of Earth and Novo, Ariana and those she loves must join humanity’s fight for justice and freedom.
As haunted memories resurface, old discoveries and new realities conspire to shatter her world forever.
Torn in one direction by her unique connection to childhood sweetheart Zane, and pulled in the other by a relentless passion for her fiery fiancé Cal, she must make the hardest decision of all. While embarking on a road to self-discovery, her psychic gift evolves and the full extent of her powerful ability is revealed.
Then fate lands another savage blow and she faces the most horrific choice of all. Forced into striking a deal with the enemy, she must make the ultimate personal sacrifice or risk everything she holds dear.
When destiny finally rears its head, what will the future hold?

Jumping up, eyes on stilts, I stumble back against my chair, almost losing my balance. “What the what?” I shriek. Cal stands and places his hands on my shoulders, gently easing me back down into the seat. Moving his chair closer to mine, he wraps his arm across my shoulders as I struggle to comprehend what his dad has just said.
“They never told you any of this?” he asks, eyebrows raised. Shaking my head, I feel queasy, and my sense of foreboding is rising.
“Well, this is going to come as a bit of a shock, but if you react like that to all of it, then we’ll be here half the night …”
“Dad,” Cal interrupts. “There’s no need for that tone. Cut Ariana some slack here, okay? She’s been through a lot. She needs to hear this, but not if you’re going to be a total jerk about it.” Looking up, I glance from father to son and the expression on Commander Remus’ face is hard to read.
“You really love her, don’t you?”
“Yes. I’ve tried to tell you this all along, but you never listen to me.” Cal eyeballs him.
“Oh, I heard you all right. I just didn’t want to believe it. I wanted to save you from … history repeating itself.” He drags his fingers roughly through his hair. “I don’t want to see you hurt, not like I was hurt. I only wanted to spare you that.” Cal’s mouth hangs open. The Commander’s eyes flit to my face, and he pins me with a serious look. “Do you love my son?”
I’m fairly confused at the turn in this conversation, but I answer him honestly nonetheless. “Yes, I do. I love him very much.” My face is flaming, but I hold his gaze. Cal’s hand trails up and down my arm, his caress feathering deep inside me. His smile is radiant and my heart flutters erratically at how easily a few words can light up his life. As I stare into his eyes, I realize how terrified I am of losing him.
He can never know, my inner voice whispers.
“Then I hope you two make it. Genuinely, I do,” Nate says, effectively ending the moment. “Because the last thing I want is for your heart to be broken like mine was, Cal.”
