Reviewing eARC from Author
Axton’s existence was a lonely one until his mother brought Sadie into his life. Now, she’s the center of his universe, and he’ll do everything in his power to protect her.
But Griselda’s evil plans cast a dark shadow over their love, threatening the future he so desperately craves. With separation looming, Ax is preparing to sacrifice everything for the girl he loves. It’s a high-stakes gamble, and he needs to stay ahead of the game if he's to outsmart his conniving mother.
Sadie has been his savior.
Now it’s his turn to save her.
The Heir and the Human by Siobhan Davis is possibly my favorite addition to The Saven Series. This novella brings light to Axton and Sadie, their relationship, and motives behind Axton’s actions in Saven: Defiance.
Axton breaks my heart. He is the lonely son of Griselda, the leader of Tor. His entire life has been one hard blow after another. An absent father, a mother that doesn’t want him, and now he has Sadie, a prisoner of his mother’s who he has claimed as his mate. It’s a little reminiscent of Stockholm syndrome, where the captured falls for their captor, except it’s not. Axton is just as much a prisoner of his mother’s as Sadie is. Griselda knows what, or rather whom, to threaten where Ax is concerned. He’s kind, a gentle giant and above all he just wants someone to love him.
Sadie is an entirely different character than what the readers have seen in the past. This novella is set on Tor, prior to Sadie’s return/memory wipe on Earth. I like this Sadie. She’s tough, kind, and secure in her love for Ax. She’s fiercely loyal which is a quality that the character we know has as well. She loves Ax and her entire world is devoted to the only friend she’s ever had. It’s sad, she hasn’t had much choice. She’s been trained to fight, kill really, and her mission is to kill Logan. I’m still not really sure how I feel about what she experiences on Tor.
This novella is really to show the readers some background on Axton and his relationship with Saide. Having read the series to date, going into this novella I knew I was in for heartbreak. It’s an emotional read for sure! If you’ve enjoyed the series to date, are curious about Axton, or just can’t wait for more from The Saven Series, I highly recommend you read this novella!
