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.

After I finished Saven Disclosure, I kind of had to let myself take in everything. The ending threw me for a loop, and I honestly couldn’t even begin to think what was going to happen next. The only reason I would suggest not immediately downloading Disclosure and diving in is because the cliffhanger will get you. When Saven Denial arrived on my kindle, I had to know what happened next. Needless to say, I might have a favorite sci-fi romance series now—is it too early to start rereading them yet? (Because I might have read the novella twice already…)

I saw a different side of Sadie. Throughout the first two books, who she is stayed in the background. All she knows is that her family doesn’t like her and she isn’t like them. Saven Denial explained all the burgeoning questions around her appearance and how she became such a strong, resolute character. In my opinion, she found a strength that she didn’t even know she had and tapped into that to make it on the planet Torc.

This novella added so much to the series. You can’t go from book two to book three and understand what’s going on (at least I would think so, but the third book isn’t out yet, so who knows?). I’m not quite sure how Davis managed to change so freaking much about the series in one novella, but you have to read this one. I don’t really consider it an option, if not so that you know what’s going on, but because it’s a good story! The characters, the tension, the romance—it was genuine Siobhan Davis. My heart was tugged in multiple directions, and I’m not sure how I’m going to make it out unscathed.

I’m trying not to give too much away, but I met a few new characters.

Axton: I loved him, in a weird sort of way. Almost as if I felt like I might be betraying the other characters that I loved in order to give him a little bit of my heart. Nonetheless, it was difficult not to love him.

Izzy: I can’t wait to learn more about her character! She wasn’t as big of a presence as Axton, but she has the potential to be in the other books, and I just know that it’ll be wonderful. Sadie has proved to have strong friendships with those that she opens herself up to, and I have no doubt that Izzy is on that list.

The cliffhangers are killing me, Siobhan. Here’s your crown, because you’ve officially earned the title of Cliffhanger Queen (the cliffhanger got me in the reread!).

By the end of this novella, you’ll be on the edge of your seat. Your mind will do that thing where it can’t process exactly what is happening, thus sucking you in—again. Science fiction and romance blend together to make for an interesting journey to an unknown planet with inventive characters.

    Great review! I really enjoyed Saven denial as well! And I felt like Sadie really showed her true personality in this book. With how she dealt with everything she learned and had to got through here. And I totally agree this novella adds so much, it sure packs a lot of information and story. I also like Axton and Izzy and I am looking forward to see more of them in future books!

      Thank you, Lola! My mind is going in all directions about how Izzy and Axton will fit into the story.
