Just like her full length books, Siobhan fabulously incorporates in the exciting novella great character development, awesome new worlds and species, never-saw-that-coming twists and turns and above all an emotional roller coaster that has me completely hooked.

Sadie’s life has been in constant flux for the past months. From wanting more out of her predetermined lower class life were love wasn’t an option she discovers that aliens exist and are roaming the Earth, falls head over heels for

I would like to thank Siobhan Davis for my copy of the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

AWMIGOD I CAN'T BELIEVE? WHAT JUST HAPPENED? I NEED MORE! Usually a .5 book you are like come on let's get it over with and get back into the actual story but holy crap you need this in your life I still can't believe what happened I'm so shocked, hurt, confused, worried but I'm loving every second of it! Easily my favourite novella EVER.

Sadie is abducted by the Thor, an alien race who know her well. Scar

So, you all think you know who and what Sadie is? Bet I still surprise ya :) This one took an unexpected turn while I was writing it, and I'm giddy with excitement over this new subplot. I've also added a fourth book to the series because there is no way I can tie everything up in one book without it s

The ending of book two left my insides twisted into all sorts of odd shapes due to the anticipation. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that I jumped at my advance read of Denial as soon as it appeared on my Kindle. I needed answers, and I needed them as soon as I could get my hands on them.

It is safe to say, I was not disappointed by this one. It is short and sweet, continuing things on whilst also leaving me ready for more. I have so many new questions, there are so many things I want –
She’s done it to me, again! … And I thought Siobhan Davis couldn’t raise the bar any higher! Reading Saven Denial was like opening a can of Whoop A**in my brain!

How much can Sadie take or has she finally reached that coming of age point where she is learning to rally herself against the latest secrets that are aimed at her? Sadie’s true past, rear ends her present and sends her future off the charts! Aliens, are at the root of all that torments Sadie, the unwilling pawn in an intergalactic tug

I received a copy of this novella from the author for an honest review.

Holy Heck, what just happened?!!

This is one of the best .5 books I've ever read. I usually don't care much for novellas. I've always thought of them as additional information that didn't make it into the novel, or a branch off of the main novels. But this is different. I don't think you can skip this novella and still understand the Saven series.

This was fast-paced. From the moment Sadie reappears on the other side with Grise

WARNING! This review MAY contain spoilers pertaining to this book and those prior. Read at your own risk.

Saven Denial is a novella between the second and third book in the Saven series, and is required if one is continuing on with the series.

I loved this short link in the Saven series. The protagonist, Sadie, has come a long way since the first book, Saven: Deception, in which she was a naive, rather retiring teenager. She is now confident and assertive and has learned the ways of several worlds in a very short time.

Siobhan Davis has created a deliciously intricate world and story. Her storytelling abilities are prodigious and compelling. She never fails to surprise me. I am hoping this exciting multi-genre series goes on and on. I

If there’s one thing Davis does well is grip you with some amazing story telling and this novella doesn’t disappoint. Although Denial is much shorter than the previous novels, it packs a mighty punch in both the story and in your feels.

Disclosure left you in a high stakes cliffhanger that resumes in Denial. Sadie’s life is crazy. She’s involved in all kinds of political drama – both human and alien, she’s fighting for equal rights, her love life is smoldering *wink wink* to those who have/will r
After the last books cliff hanger ending I couldn't wait to read this. Thanks Siobhan for the advanced copy in return for an honest review.

I totally loved this novella, oh how I wished it could have been longer! I was hooked from the first page. A rollercoaster of a read, ups, downs, upsidedowns, I get thrown to the left then to the right, just when I'm totally engrossed it stops dead, end of the track with a sheer drop in front of me. An almighty cliffhanger that has my heart jumping out of my

Saven Denial starts right where Saven Disclosure finished, and in this novella we really get the chance to watch Sadie and get to know her on a deeper level. Sadie manages to explore her history, and a past that has never been seen before. The hostile Griselda also features in this book, and we meet some important figures, Axton and Izzy.

This book is a really nice novella, and Sadie has to come to terms with herself, her past, and what she wants to do with her future. Siobhan Davis reveals what
This novella was awesome, it filled in so much! There was so much that shocked me and worried me. We meet the Tor...another alien race, and they are enemies of the Saven. They have time travel technology. It's so interesting. I don't want to give away too much, but there so much we learn about Sadie in this novella!!! Next, on to Saven Defiance (book 3)!!! This is such an awesome series!!! Have I said that before? Only a million times. :) ...more

This was really good! I have no idea how the next book will start considering not everyone reads novellas. This book was so important though and had so much needed information.

This book gives us answers we have been seeking around sadies background, i was reading this and becoming more anxious and excited to where the story was heading. Saven Denial is a short novella but a crutial one at that. YOU MUST READ BEFORE BOOK 3 (Saven Defiance) it answered many questions i had but now i have more to know. We meet a new character Axton , Ax for short, he is Griselda son and has played a part in shaping who Sadie is. even if she doesn't know. ...more

After I finished Saven Disclosure, I kind of had to let myself take in everything. The ending threw me for a loop, and I honestly couldn’t even begin to think what was going to happen next. The only reason I would suggest not immediately downloading Disclosure and diving in is because the cliffhanger will get you. When Saven Denial arrived on my kindle, I had to know what hap

Saven: Denial
by Siobhan Davis is a novella that bridges the gap between Saven Disclosure and Saven Defiance by answering some much needed questions about Sadie.

Please note that if you have not read Saven Disclosure there are minor spoilers ahead.

While Denial is short (just over 100 pages) it was nice to have some answers after the awful

I know I said I wouldn't give Siobhan Davis a 5 star rating yet because I know she will get better and I'll have to invent a new rating system... That being said, this book gets a 5 star rating. And I may have to reinvent my rating system.

Immersing you immediately in a new world along with Sadie, intrigue abounds as the mystery about Sadie's past and purpose unravels. Every single point is so well developed, you are completely comfortable as a reader in a new land, and it is very exciting to ex

First Impression (post completion of reading): Saven Denial, the 2.5 of this magnificent series, was a complete thrill ride. I cannot even begin to tell you how utterly spellbound I was by it. It challenged everything I thought I knew about Sadie and her existence. Wow!

Siobhan Davis was a genius on this short. She took what was already a very compelling story and made it into a master-level marvel of wonder.

By the end of this novella, you’ll be on the edge of your seat. Your mind will do that thing where it can’t process exactly what is happening, thus sucking you in—again. Science fiction and romance blend together to make for an interesting journey to an unknown planet with inventive characters.

Original review can be found here: Saven Denial

Literally the second after I finished book number 2, I started this one. The good news is I didn't start reading the series really until three books have come out, the bad news is I finished this one in no time at all, considering it's a novella, and now I have to wait until August.. AUGUST! ugh. UGH! I'm so impatient already.

This one started off RIGHT where the other one left.

So so good! I don't think I have ever enjoyed a novella for a series as much as I enjoyed this one.

This novella was very fast paced. At times I had forgotten that this was a novella and not a full length novel. Of course, I remembered when it was over way too quickly, and left me wanting more.

Denial begins where Disclosure (book two) left off. Which was perfect because Disclosure ended on a cliffhanger. And we all have a love/hate relationship with cliffhangers; they keep you in suspense, but so

Yet again, Siobhan managed to grab my attention and hold it until the very end. I was so sad that this was a novella length book, but I completely understand her reasons for that. It did answer a lot of questions that were raised in the previous two books. For example: now we know exactly why Sadie has felt different from everyone else her entire life, and why she woke up platinum blonde and grey eyed instead of brunette and blue eyed one morning when she was four. Siobhan also gave us another h ...more

Sadie is still lost as I am on Torc. It really doesn't explain much. She lived a double life on Torc and Earth but doesn't remember. I think the videos to herself are brilliant. Ax is lovely and I feel for him. He's possessive and Sadie's husband. He can't help but be jealous every time Logan's name comes up in conversation . What a reveal! Griselda is unhinged. I like Izzy. I wonder what's happened to Haydn. I know he's still in love with Sadie. The fire ability came from

Oh. My. God! I can't believe the things I just read! It was completely genius don't get me wrong but it just left me feeling bad for someone else. I feel bad for Axton even though I don't like him. Just because I can't stand him and the fact that he has another case of grabby hands doesn't mean that I approve of everything Sadie did to him.

OMG! This was only a novella stuck in the middle of this series? There is seriously so much going on in this book...I didn't even realize it was intended to be a short inclusion in this set until it was over and I saw 'novella' written on the title page.

Sadie endures being kidnapped (again), finding out she's fallen in love (again), discovers she has previously hidden powers (not 'again'...but how cool is that? And didn't part of her realize this last one all along?). My mind is still reeling f

This book is definitely key in the Saven series. In this novella, we get to see all about Sadie's origins. Not just who she is, but WHY she is who she is. It's not your typical story of someone born a certain way or fulfilling a prophecy. It's completely different, and I think that's what makes it so fun.
We also see that there is a love interest in this storyline that is an integral part of Sadie's life and it will no doubt cause trouble. I think you'll enjoy this book. It really will help tie i

Another cliffhanger ending. Poor Sadie, just when things were kind of looking up for her, she is taken to the planet Tor and her whole life is upturned in a matter of days.

The introduction of new characters is interesting. Ax seems true and Izzy who is her new (old) BFF makes for an interesting storyline to come.
