I adored this latest installment of the Saven series! I was hooked from early on and pretty much flew through it as fast as I could. Definitely can't wait to see what happens next; is it time for the next one yet??
This series just gets better and better!! If you enjoy science fiction/romance you will love these books!! Siobhan Davis writes a wonderful series where you visit different worlds, explore different technologies and meet new alien species!! Her world building is so vivid and the characters are so real!! I DO NOT, I repeat...DO NOT want this series to end!!!
I was lucky enough to obtain an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I have loved Siobhan Davis' work since I first read True Calling. I continued to be enthralled as I began reading the Saven series. With this newest installment, I was wowed once again. There is so much going on in this volume. We've got betrayals and loss, and understanding and revelations...we learn more about the characters we have come to love in the first two books. We learn more about the characters we've come to hate as well, and maybe, possibly change some opinions on those. Once things are out in the open we learn to see certain people's actions in a new light. There is a lot of action in this book as well, we've got fighting and war, we've got travel within planets and among planets...you will be taken on a ride throughout the course of this book and you will find yourself wanting to keep reading past the time when your eyes want to close for the night! There is a "to be continued" at the end and you'll be eager for the next book or novella in the series. I will continue to read Davis' work and I will continue to recommend her novels to those who love Dystopian fiction, Sci Fi, and/or Futuristic romance genres.
My mind is blown! Saven Defiance is so damn good! I am just so in love with this series, and once I pick up one of Siobhan Davis' books to read, I can't put it down till I'm finished; sleep be damned! There wasn't anything I disliked about this book, and once I was finished reading, I just felt gobsmacked! There are so many events and revelations in this book! And I am so excited for the next book! Saven Defiance starts off right where the last book cliff-ended, Sadie has just escaped the Tor with Axton and Izzy, and has been picked up by a surly Haydn and a few other familiar faces, but there is one very important person missing, Logan. Sadie needs to find Logan, and they need to figure out how to stop the war between the different planets, and they need to especially stop Logan's brother Dante, and his desire for universal domination. I love that we get to see multiple planets, and the world building that Siobhan Davis does is really immersive. I love picturing each of the individual planets, and there uniqueness. Sadie is also dealing with the situation with Axton, she's really in a tough spot, but I think she handled herself admirably. I really feel for Axton; despite some of his actions that I don't agree with, I still really feel for him, and understand how devastated he is. I wish there could be 2 Sadies, the current Sadie for Logan, and then Axton's Sadie, so everyone can be happy! You know! Some weird timeline thing! It could happen! I'm still for Logan all the way, and the scenes between Logan and Sadie are just wonderful, and so heartfelt and deep; they make my heart sigh. Their connection is just an amazing thing. Logan is really amazing in this book, and he really shows maturity in a lot of really difficult situations. There are a lot of intense moments in this book, and I was sad that we lose some characters. The deaths make the story seem more real, and the characters are going through some really tough situations, so it's only natural that everyone wouldn't make it, so I understand the need for them, but definitely heart-wrenching! There's tons of action in this book, as the gang tries to gain allies and survive, and I loved it all. I love suspense, and I could feel the anxiousness in my heart as I read. I love the way this series is unfolding, and I am so excited to read the next book. The writing is amazing, and I love the way Siobhan Davis' tells a story. Saven Defiance has soul deep romance, heart pounding action, amazing characters, gut wrenchingly intense moments, and once you start it, you will be drawn into the story so completely. Okay, sorry if this review was overly gushy, but I just loved it! Definitely read it!
I am so in love with this series. I've been lucky enough to read these first books back to back, but now I have to wait until next year to see how the series ends. The struggle is certainly real. Sadie and her friends had to basically start trying to save the universe in this one. Entire planets are at war with each other, and Earth seems likely to get blown up in the process. Sadie and the others must bring together allies from across the universe and start working to establish peace. But it's hard to know who they can trust when everyone is turning on each other. A couple of the characters that I loved/felt for (I won't say who--spoilers) really pissed me off in this book. One was just being an idiot (I can forgive), while the other became a full-fledged psycho stalker whom I know will just mess things up in the final book. There were some deaths that I'm still not over. I was really hoping these characters would get their happy endings. As with the previous books in the series, the revelations blew my mind. Just when I think all secrets have been exposed, BOOM. Five more. I'm so excited to read the final book next year, and I'm sure I'll binge read the entire series again before then. ***I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary ARC of this book.***
As with book two, so much happened in this one. There are so many different aspects to the story, so many things going on. Fortunately, everything is given enough attention. Things play out well, rather than items appearing meshed together. Honestly, and I know I’m repeating myself, there was so much. I was so pleased by the additional alien races in book two and then two-point-five, and such a thing continues on in book three. The science fiction lover in me was so glad that things continued to grow in that regard. In fact, there was quite a bit happen in relation to the alien races. Fear not, I’ll hold back on spoilers, but be prepared for secrets to come out and for the story to grow even stronger where the peace and hatred between the alien races is concerned. A couple of things were expected, not overly shocking, but because there was so much going on, I still found certain twists catching me off guard. Whilst we are given answers to many of our questions, there are still so many things we need to know more about. In fact, there were almost as many new questions as there were answers. It promises great things for the next book, it really is no surprise the author added a fourth book to the series. In addition to all of this, I feel even more in love with the series for another reason. Yes, there are plots within plots. Yes, things are progressing at a great rate. Yes, I’m holding out for answers I’m sure will be wonderful. It sounds crazy that I would need anything else to enjoy the series – but there is something more. Something unique to me, I believe. What I’m about to say will not apply to most people, as I know many hold different views, but in explaining this it does help show just how deep into the story I’ve emerged myself. You see, I’m a massive fan of the young adult genre. I will pick up any young adult book that interests me. However, I do have a slight issue with the never-ending romance stories. They are all the same, in my personal opinion, and such a thing bores me. My interest in the romance in this story… well, it was never quite what I had hoped it would be. I had been crossing my fingers that I would enter the fangirl feels at some point but it didn’t seem to be happening. I didn’t hate the romantic aspect, yet I wasn’t overly concerned by it. Not in the way I have been in other stories. Something changed in this book. The romantic aspect seemed a lot more mature at times. I admit there was still some annoyance about the additional aspect added by Denial (as I said, two-point-five is an important story), yet it could have been so much worse. I feel as though it worked to strengthen Sadie as a character, and due to this I wasn’t as annoyed as I could have been – as I’d expected to be. She was a strong woman, who knew what she wanted, and she wasn’t about to let drama influence her life. I came to really respect her as a character, and through the events that took place I came to enjoy the romantic aspect of the story. I found myself smiling at the things that were occurring, rather than rolling my eyes in disgust. It was a massive improvement. I admit that some of the romantic parts still felt juvenile but, as a whole, things seemed a lot more mature.
I was so happy that I had book three after I finished 2.5 because each book in this series leaves you with a cliff-hanger and a craving for more! Saven Defiance picks up and resolves some 'where are they' and 'whats happening' questions right away. Then throws you into new problems that this rag-tag team of humans and aliens have to fight to solve. The whole book is full of action, twists, and romance! I would recommend the Saven series to anyone who love romance, sci-fi, adventure, and cliff-hangers! Honestly the last book in the series is out now, so if I was you I would spend this weekend by downloading the whole series and binge-ing them all!
The incredible and action-packed third book in the Saven series Saven Defiance is the easily the best in the series so far, with the author’s writing defying possibilities and improving with each novel. The words and worlds glide seamlessly throughout the story, with not one plot hole or issue. The action, tension, romance and revelations make this thoroughly un-put-down-able. The reader sees more of new and likeable characters like Dali, Axton, Izzy and Rylan, as well as meeting others such as King Coryn, creating a great variety of people and personalities to take part in the story. You can relate in some way to all the characters, helping to make them understandable, yet not predictable. Sadie, Logan and the group all have to face their enemies and shoulder their responsibilities, whilst those who are fighting them are investigated to make some shocking discoveries. The characterisation is believable in the way they each evolve during the story, with brilliant detail that makes them spring off the page. The plotline is fantastic, with snippets of action interspersed with romance and tension, flawlessly laid out. With an initially fast pace, it accelerates to breakneck speed (in a comprehensive manner, I might add) to complement the hyperactive atmosphere, so it just gets better and better. Developing organically, the plot forms twists that shock the reader but make perfect sense on reflection. To start reading is to start feeling the all-consuming emotions of the world and the characters, such is the meticulous detail used to describe the planets and environments that feature. The scene is not one to just visualise, but one to fall into – with such appealing destinations and dangerous missions, this world entirely tops reality. To say that I would recommend this book is quite the understatement – I would jump up and down in front of them shouting “READ IT!” until they swore to. The Saven series is perfect for anyone who loves YA novels, science-fiction, fantasy, romance and/or dystopian, or simply enjoys some pure escapism. These views expressed are my own, honest and unbiased opinions. I received a free copy of the book in exchange for a truthful review free from subjectivity.
