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?
You can find Saven: Deception on Goodreads
The first in a new Sci-fi series, Saven:Deception is sure to please fans of YA fiction.
With issues such as social inequality and oppression, we are drawn into this world where every part of one’s life is determined by your tattoo, which indicates your status as a citizen. Even the right ot bear children is based on this!
The main character Sadie is a headstrong young lady who seeks to improve her station in life. When given what seem to be the perfect golden opportunity to to just that , she seizes it without hesitation. But, as the saying goes, “All that glitters, is not gold’ and it’s not long before she realises all is not as it should be. The hidden truths she will discover will have far-reaching implications, especially for her class of people, the bronze stars.
The worldbuilding was adequate, the characters were mostly well developed and interesting, the plot was intriguing and the pacing was steady without obvious lags. I was not a fan of the romance, if it can be called that, even after it was explained, it still felt too insta-love for me.
Overall, a really interesting premise and storyline in a futuristic world with political intrigue and sci-fi elements, Saven:Deception was a good read and one worth adding to yourr TBR!
