"Another home run for Siobhan Davis ... a perfect ending to her Saven saga." Danielle. Goodreads Reviewer.
The Truth Will Set Us Free
I’ve been lied to and betrayed my whole life.
Revealing the truth is the only thing that matters now.
The truth truly will set us free.
With the political landscape shifting in the galaxy, and the tenuous situation on Earth growing more fraught by the day, Sadie knows time is running out to save mankind. Torn between conflicting agendas, she is forced to make difficult choices that lead to bloody battles and situations she’s not entirely comfortable with.
But this is war, and war means sacrifice.
Ax’s betrayal weighs heavy on her heart and her mind, but it doesn’t override her concern for his welfare. Her desire to protect both the boys she loves is as strong as ever.
Logan has been inaugurated as the new Saven king, but he’s struggling to cope with the pressure of responsibility and the revelation about who Axton is. His people are strongly opposed to Sadie, but she is his forever love and he won’t do anything without her by his side. Faced with impossible obstacles, he is preparing to make the ultimate sacrifice in the name of love.
When the final battle draws near, and it’s time to fight the enemy head on, who will be left standing? And will there be anything left to fight for?
★☆ This is the final book in the Saven Series. This title was previously listed as Saven Declaration. ★☆
It’s the end! What? The end of the Saven series? Say it isn’t so!
I can’t imagine a better ending to the series. I fell in love with Logan, reluctantly gave part of my heart to Ax, and watched Sadie grow as a strong character the entire way. I liked the way it ended, with finality but the clause of hope. Maybe I like it so much because my ship sailed, but I can’t say that I wasn’t swayed by Ax’s charms.
This is a romance as much as it is a sci-fi. Logan and Sadie had to go through so much to get together, and while this wasn’t my favorite book in the series, I’m glad that they concreted their relationship and it held firm. However, Siobhan tugged my heart in the direction of the white-haired half brother of the Saven king. There were parts of me that wouldn’t have minded if Sadie had ended up with Axton. It wasn’t like my undying devotion to Cal Remus (still fangirling hard over him). I liked both of the men that had been such sequential parts of Sadie’s life.
The side characters out-did themselves in this one. I even fell in love with Sadie’s bodyguard and would have been livid if his story hadn’t ended like I wanted it to. I know this is a spoiler-y review, but because it’s the end, I find it difficult not to talk about how everything wrapped up. It was done so well.
If you’re looking for a series to dive into, check out the Saven series. It has action and romance and aliens. I know Siobhan is writing contemporary YA now, but her sci-fi works will always be my favorite. I love the worlds she creates and the characters that she makes me root for, their scars and rough roads included.
