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.
Note from the author: This continues the story from where it left off in Saven Disclosure. This is not an optional novella but an essential read if you don’t want to miss out on important plot developments.
Oh how I enjoy a short story that pulls you in so quickly then takes you on a action packed journey!
You have to read this short story in the order its meant to be read. This is not on of those 'hey let me make more money by sticking a short story in the middle of this series' tricks. Honestly this short story would not have fit at the end of book two or beginning of book three nor was not it long enough to be turned into its own novel. Saven Denial is essential to the series and you will not regret reading it. It leaves off where book two ended and gives you the backstory of Sadie's life in another timeline! That is right she has lived and feel in love before! The revelation of this plays such a big role in the identity of Sadie and her connection to the other aliens in her life. I enjoyed this plot twist and the writing throughout. I would recommend to everyone!

THE TRUTH ISN’T ALWAYS EASY
I’ve promised to protect those I love.
But someone is lying to me.
Will I discover the truth in time to save him?
With war looming in outer space and the Earthen government forced into hiding, the battle for ultimate world domination is only just beginning.
Having accepted her identity, Sadie sets out on a daring quest with her friends, which takes them deep into alien territory. Fraught with tension and danger, the journey is not an easy one, especially when previous adversaries become new allies and cherished friends become suspicious opponents.
As the heirs unite in a bid to restore peace to the galaxy, powerful enemies, determined to exact retribution, surround them on all sides. When hidden agendas and shocking revelations come to light, the fallout is massive.
Sadie’s love life is a tangled, messy affair. While one relationship is embraced forever, another spirals out of control, threatening to destroy everything. Determined to do the right thing, Sadie will fight hard to protect those she loves.
But there are some battles she cannot win.
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!
I need to create a new BINGE WORTHY rating!
