THE TRUTH WON’T HIDE FOREVER

To protect Logan, I have no choice but to deceive him.
But I’m not the only one hiding the truth.
Will our love survive all the secrets and lies?

Enemy alien ships crowd the skies over Earth while the world waits with bated breath. The Saven have been exposed, and where once they were abhorred, they are now championed as our greatest ally and our only possible savior.

Logan and Sadie have been separated, and the longer he is gone, the more their love is tested by duty, doubts, and deception.

Sadie and Jarod have infiltrated the highest levels of government, but they are playing a dangerous game. Surrounded by people with conflicting agendas—hell-bent on using her for their own aim—Sadie is confused when the lines between good and evil are blurred. It’s impossible to tell friend from foe, and no one can be trusted.

When the full extent of the experiments taking place in Sector Twenty is disclosed, Sadie can no longer sit back and watch as the lower classes face a horrific fate. Racing to save her loved ones and mankind, she risks her own safety and the love she’s waited a lifetime for to do the right thing.

But no one thought to save her from herself.

Initial Reaction

 

Lies, romance and more lies make up the second book in Saven! Siobhan Davis‘s Saven: Disclosure hooked me from the beginning and didn’t let go even after I finished the book. It was full of action, suspense, romance, and intrigue. This book picks up a few weeks after the events of Saven: Deception, so if you haven’t read that book do so first! Sadie and Logan are separated. Logan is with his father, trying to show the people of Earth that they are not a threat while at the same time talking to the enemy alien ships that are in the sky. Sadie is working in the government building for the vice president. Her entanglements with the rebels and the Saven though will cost her. The question is just how much.

Sadie, Sadie, Sadie

I’ll be the first to admit that I didn’t care for Sadie in the first book. She was immature, over-emotional and kind of grated my nerves. That’s changed in this installment. Sadie is still over-emotional if you ask me. I caught myself rolling my eyes at her quite a few times, BUT she’s matured. She’s accepting her mistakes and owning up to them. Rather than blaming her family for the way they treat her (which is awful by the way), she is making a life for herself in the confines that Logan has laid out for her that is. saven-disclosure-teaser-3

In addition to seeing Sadie’s growth, Jared and Haydn are a big part of the first half of the book. I absolutely loved seeing these two characters fleshed out more. Jared is Sadie’s friend, you could even make the argument that he is her best friend. He gets her involved deeper with the Rebels and always has her back. Haydn is Logan’s sworn bodyguard, but Logan has him protecting Sadie while he is gone. Haydn *sigh* has my heart after this book. I’m not sure how he managed it but he did.

And Logan….I didn’t care much for him either in the first book, again that’s changed. He is still overprotective and controlling in my opinion, but his reasoning is better explained. His duties to his people and his love for Sadie conflict and he has to make some hard decisions. I’m not sure how I feel about the direction he went. I hate the lying part (on his and Sadie’s side of things). But without the lying, we wouldn’t have an intriguing book now would we 😉

Deception can get you killed

As I already mentioned, lying is a big theme in this book. Lying to protect the ones you love, lying because you think you can fix things by yourself, lying by omission, lying because of duty. LYING! I hate lying. It ruins relationships, it becomes a crux and you don’t know where the lies end and the truth begins. It breaks trust and hearts, leaving the pieces of relationships in its wake. This is all true for Sadie in this book.

Sadie is working with the Rebels. This is no secret, she started doing this while in Thalassic City. Now her position in the Vice President’s office AND her relationship with Logan make her the Rebels most valuable agent. Sadie finds herself in over her head when the Rebels task her with something she never dreamed of. But it is some else’s betrayal that she didn’t see coming.

Must Read Sequel

Saven: Disclosure does not suffer second-book syndrome that is for sure! It’s fast-paced and addictive. I couldn’t set it down, finishing it in one day. Then re-reading it to be sure I got it all! I was impressed with the character growth in not just Sadie but the secondary characters as well. And then the plot with the foreshadowing!!! As a reader, the foreshadowing that Siobhan Davis throws in clues you in to what’s going on and what may happen in the future. In addition, it had me screaming at Sadie for the decisions she was making because I knew they’d come back to haunt her. If you like science fiction and a little young adult romance (though because of the language I would say 16+ for the YA), then grab a copy of this series and start reading!
