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?

*Received an eARC from the Author in exchange for an honest Review *

This was my first book from the author Siobhan Davis and  It was a pleasant read but I can’t say it was total perfection because I had some issues with the book.  I really liked the concept and the underwater city that the author has created  was quite interesting in its own unique way. I think it’s a great start for a new series and I hope its going to be much better in the next installment.

The book was set in a dystopian world where the people are divided into class systems such as bullions, coins and stars in which Gold bullion represents upper class citizens, Silver Coins represents middle class and  bronze stars represents lower class citizens. Due to the government rules, the lower class citizens are deprived of marriage, education and motherhood. 17 year old Sadie Owens is a  lower class citizen who is despised by her own family. She dreams of living far away from her hateful family who doesn’t really care about her well being and when she hears about the new government experiment named Thallasic city, a new shiny city under the sea she immediately takes part in it. Sadie is pretty much excited to stay 6 months in the Thalassic city where she could be whoever she chose to be. After getting in to the Thalassic city, she’s attracted to a guy named Logan who is actually a bullion. she doesn’t understand why she feels a magnetic pull towards him  and it seems he’s hiding so many things that might break them apart. With time, Sadie comes to learn that the Thalassic city is not what it seems to be and the guy she likes isn’t what he appears to be.

All the characters in the book are quite good. Sadie is pretty much likable character and I really liked her friendship with Jenna. She is very loyal, clever and strong headed character who doesn’t falter when finding answers. The only thing that I didn’t liked about her was her constantly mooning over Logan. Logan was hard to connect and he’s kinda ok character but not that impressive. I didn’t liked the insta-love but I think it can be overlooked. The romance between Sadie and Logan might seem cheesy but I really enjoyed it. There isn’t any love triangle yet and I hope it stays that way. As for the supporting characters, I really liked Jenna and Jarod. Dante is really a hateful guy and it was sad to see the awful things Jenna has gone through with him.

The plot was great and the only thing that I didn’t liked in it was that there was too much teenage romance angst in it. However, there are lots of twists in the plot that’ll make the readers engaged to it till the end. I really loved the the world building in it. It was fantastic and pretty much amazing. The writing style of the author was quite wonderful and I really liked it. The pacing of the book was slow at start but nonetheless it was interesting read.

Overall, I liked it! With how things ended in the first book, I hope the next book going to be a blast with more action. I highly recommend this book to all the readers who enjoy reading sci-fi/dystopian and alien romance novels.

MY RATING: 4-stars14-stars14-stars14-stars1 [3.5/5 Stars]
