Saven: Deception by Siobhan Davis
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I received this free eARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
I have enjoyed my fair share of alien novels, so I had high expectations for this one. Especially because on NetGalley they compared this book to the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout, which is my all-time favorite series out in the world (so far at least!). So because of that, I was a little disappointed with this novel. Not a ton, but was let down a bit because it didn't compare to the Lux series.
Sadie was a great character, though she did go from 0 to 180 throughout the novel. She was shy, quiet, reserved when she was living with her family, but then when she gets to Thalassic City she's completely different from her usually self. I know she said she wanted to be more vocal and active in her life, but one doesn't just go from one extreme to another without some transition.
And the connection between her and Logan was a bit much and was stressed too much in the novel. Especially when Logan was being a pain to her and ignoring her, only to intensely stare at her the next day. Talk about whip lash!
The secondary characters were all over the place, especially the ones that were loyal to Logan (who you find out later which characters are and aren't).
So this was an okay novel. I don't think I'll be getting the other novels unless they are available through NetGalley again, but weirder things have happened! I am glad I was able to read this eARC and I think YA readers will really enjoy the story that Siobhan Davis created!
