Zeva, Book 1

Zeva, Book 1

by Tesha Finley




Tristan grew up, trained from birth, that he and the rest of the Zevian race existed for only one purpose… to protect Earth, at all cost. Being the curious person he was and being stuck on Zeva, waiting until the humans needed him, just wouldn't do. He felt a pull toward Earth that he couldn't explain, not yet anyway. When his father was stationed on Earth to stand watch, the missing pieces of the puzzle began to fall into place. It wasn't until he met Ember that he knew his life had changed forever. She was beautiful, smart, but most of all forbidden. The uncanny pull he had toward her would only make his fight to resist her that much harder. She would only serve as a distraction in his life and more importantly has destiny. Tristan was on the brink of his Ceremony where he'd morph for the first time ever, and his responsibility would become greater than ever. Especially now that there was a war approaching, he'd reach a crossroad. A battle had already risen within him, between his head and his heart. Would he risk everything, including their lives, or take the safe route and ensure that Ember was out of harms way?

Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite Zeva by Tesha Finley promises excitement for fans of young adult fantasy. For a debut novel, Zeva is a huge achievement and heralds an interesting series. Tristan is a young man who grew up in Zeva, an alternate universe that exists to protect Earth. He is nearing adulthood and looking forward to the ceremony that will welcome him into Zevian adulthood. But something bothers him — he's always wanted to have some contact with Earth, not content on waiting for the right time. And the opportunity comes when his father is stationed on Earth. He meets Ember, a smart and beautiful girl who makes him wonder if his place is really in Zeva or on Earth. While he feels irresistibly drawn to her, he knows it would be anathema to pursue the attraction. He has to choose between his ordained path and Ember. But either way, he will be making a very serious sacrifice. Does he have the wisdom and the strength to follow his heart? And will he be able to protect Ember when things go terribly wrong? Zeva is a great story with a strong plot, enriched by a familiar theme — a young man falling for a girl he is forbidden to have. Tristan is a character facing a dilemma and this is at the heart of the conflict that moves the plot forward. He is torn between his connection to Ember and his vocation as a Zevian. The setting is a world like ours, a world that follows a strict order, created to serve ours. It is an exciting place and the author imagines it with features and elements that sound familiar to readers. There is an eeriness that permeates Tristan's world, making it feel like a dream world without losing the realism that is injected into the story. The story has psychological and emotional depth, written in a style that is atmospheric; it's fast-paced and engaging thanks to the strong plot points. Tesha Finley makes me want to read the next book in the series.

An unexpected page turner for sure! It took a chapter or two to set everything up but from there...look out! It is non stop and keeps you guessing at every turn trying to figure out where the story is going. Before you know it, you are halfway through the book...its just that good! This is book one? Can't wait for the rest of the books!
