Goodreads Synopsis: 

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?


*I was provided a eARC by the author in exchange for an honest review

As you might know I’ve read the True Calling trilogy and really enjoyed it so I was really excited to read the beginning of a new series by Siobhan Davis. Also, I’ve been reading mostly new adult books for the last couple of months so it’s great to come back to sci-fi and dystopia.
I really like the characters from this book. I loved Sadie and her motives to do certain things and I loved Logan. They are both great characters. Also, I loved their friends. I even loved to hate Dante. Believe me, I absolutely hate Dante but I just like to hate him. One thing I didn’t like a lot in the beginning was the insta-love thing. It wasn’t really insta-love but the way Sadie and Logan were attracted to each other but my feelings about that changed when I found out something that explains a lot of this attraction. Another thing I did like was the plot and how the action is mostly in an underwater city. The beginning of this book was a little bit slow for me but I think that’s pretty normal because it’s the first book of the series and we need this first few chapter to understand what’s happening. One thing I can tell you, the last few chapters were a rollercoaster. Everything happened and I wasn’t expecting a lot of them.
Overall, this was a great book and a great start for this series. If you like sci-fi and dystopian books you should give this one a try.


4 stars
