Saven Denial (Saven #2.5) by Siobhan Davis
Goodreads Summary: THE TRUTH HURTS
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.
Rating: 4 Stars
Review: Saven Denial starts right where Saven Disclosure finished, and in this novella we really get the chance to watch Sadie and get to know her on a deeper level. Sadie manages to explore her history, and a past that has never been seen before. The hostile Griselda also features in this book, and we meet some important figures, Axton and Izzy.
This book is a really nice novella, and Sadie has to come to terms with herself, her past, and what she wants to do with her future. Siobhan Davis reveals what is hidden in Sadie's past, and this novella is the perfect way to do so.
I'm finding it hard to write this review without any spoilers, so I'll keep it short. Logan doesn't feature in the book, but this is a key part of Sadie's self discovery. Saven Denial also caused me to question and reconsider what I'd always thought would be Sadie's future. The ending was a little different, and we'll just have to see what's in store for book three.
