Start your review of Saven Defiance (Saven #4)
Another heart-stopping installment in the Saven series. Siobhán Davis crafts a fascinating story full of suspenseful drama, nail-biting twists, and sweet angsty love burdened with the threats that come with intergalactic war that’s impossible to put down.
“We don’t have time for all this personal drama.” My eyes flit between Logan, Haydn, and Ax. “And it’s not fair on the others. The atmosphere is horrendous because of what’s going on between us. And I’m so tired of it. All of it... So sort

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

I don't know what to even write, I'm an emotional mess!! My heart has been shattered into a million pieces as I try to process what's just happened.

So from the HUGE cliffhanger, we were left with from Saven Disclosure Sadie can't believe the frosty welcome she receives from her best of friends, with mounting pressure with a war of the worlds going on Sadie feels lost to herself but knows she needs to try
The war of the worlds is brewing and outer space is the battle ground. The prize? Total world domination, or would that be total universal domination?

Sadie is once again caught in the crosshairs as sides are chosen, allies become possible enemies and someone is going to have their heart broken. As if that isn’t enough tension, one king reveals painful secrets as he pledges his aide for Sadie and her group. Enemy number one, the deadliest, the most powerful and most definitely a man burned and tw

Oh my. I can safely say Defiance is my favourite book in the Saven series to date. Honestly, it was so good. I don’t know what I’m going to do now that I’m sitting waiting – impatiently, might I add – for the conclusion to this great series.

Before I go into detail about this book, I feel as though a little recap is called for. I’m doing this mainly so you can understand just how much I adored this book, so you can truly appreciate how hard it hit me.

4.5 Stars

Well, I loved this book just as much as the rest of the series far, but found some of it slightly hard to believe. It's a personal opinion though, which is why I'm still going to give it 5 stars at heart.

The Sadie, Axton, and Logan drama really begins in this instalment, and the air is often tense. A lot happens, and Saven Defiance has to have the most fast paced plot so far.

There is heaps more conflict and violence as well, and some very detailed description. Deaths occur, and often it

I gobbled up this installment in the Saven series just as fast as I did the others. The story contains all the trademark Davis characteristics: fast-moving action, romance, intrigue, surprises/twists, and a whole lot of inventiveness. I don't know how she thinks all this stuff up, but I'd love to get inside her brain and see how it's done.

On a personal note, I found my allegiances to the various characters shaken up in this episode, which is exactly what an author is supposed to do, but the shif

Book 3

Well, I'm exhausted again and not in a good way. Dante is despicable yet Axton has him beat. He had the key to Sadie's cuffs the entire time? Axton being the half-brother of Logan was a drop of the mic moment. It explains his extreme jealousy of Logan. I liked Axton in the previous book because the deception he perpetrated against Sadie felt real. Neve.... SO sad when she was killed. I'm SO glad Haydn is alive at the end of this book. I was worried. Ella dying was inevitable. She wasn't in
This series just gets better and better!! If you enjoy science fiction/romance you will love these books!! Siobhan Davis writes a wonderful series where you visit different worlds, explore different technologies and meet new alien species!! Her world building is so vivid and the characters are so real!! I DO NOT, I repeat...DO NOT want this series to end!!!

4/5 Love Triangle Stars. I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

In this fourth book of the series, we are thrown right into the action where Denial ended. Sadie has high hopes when she sees her friends. That all changes when she realizes she is public enemy number one.

This is going to be a complete disaster!

Yes, Haydn. Yes, it is.

What worked well: There is no down time for this book. The plot is a constant forward push. I found myself letting laundry p
I received an eARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of this review.

Seriously….one word for this book….DRAMA!!! Saven: Defiance by Siobhan Davis is a suspenseful, emotional rollercoaster that takes the series to an entirely new level.

I’m honestly having a hard time coming up with words to describe my emotions while reading this book. It’s was full of highs and lows and everything in between. I think I felt th
A Leisure Moment

Saven Defiance has action, suspense, romance, and a cliffhanger that will make you want to throw your e-reader. However, I wouldn’t suggest that route because then you can’t read the next one! And as someone who has read the novella that comes next, you’ll want that baby safe and sound and ready for your next immediate download.

I just finished reading a preview of the book (first 3 chapters) and all I can say is WOW!!!! The series continues to get better and better with each addition. You MUST read Saven Denial prior to reading this book. If not, you will be completely puzzled by the start of the book and the introduction of two new, and important characters, Izzy and Ax. Now, I have to be honest I am COMPLETELY on Team Ax. He is a phenominal character, and in my opinion, the person that Sadie should end up with. I kno ...more

***Thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.***

I am so in love with this series. I've been lucky enough to read these first books back to back, but now I have to wait until next year to see how the series ends. The struggle is certainly real.

Sadie and her friends had to basically start trying to save the universe in this one. Entire planets are at war with each other, and Earth seems likely to get blown up in the process. Sadie and the othe

(I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review)

Wow the last chapter or so revealed so much it left me completely mind blown!
I wouldn't expect any less from Siobhan Davis though, as this is completely and utterly her style :)

Sadie, Logan, and Axton are constantly in close proximity of one another so the tension in the air is always high. Add to it Haydn and his over-protectiveness of Logan (and his hostility towards Sadie) and you get plenty of drama in this instalment.

Don't make me hate Ax.... Don't you dare!!!!

First thoughts, it was fast paced with plenty of action and lots of emotional scenes. It made me tear up a few times. My heart nearly jumped out of my chest too. The intensity of the emotional scenes hit me to the core. I could feel everything...

The revelations at the end of the book :O no real cliffhanger this time thankfully, but it does make me want to read the next book (there's a next book!!!!! :o ) I wasn't expecting that! Delighted I can't wai

Oh my goodness, these books keep getting better and better.

Sadie is struggling to come to terms with who she loves and who she loved, but it makes for an interesting inner turmoil as she realises that there is only one who truly has her heart.

The warring continues through the galaxy and on earth and who is going to win in the end?

Oh. My. Gosh!

Seriously, mind blown! I love the foreshadowing that gave me a hint of what was revealed at the end of this book, and the things I NEVER saw coming! Trying so hard not too leave any spoilers but it makes it hard to talk about how incredible this series is!!!

For some reason I can't get my blog website to load properly right now, so I'll just to my review here, since I copy and paste anyways.

**This book was given to me by the author in exchange for my honest review**

I took my time with this one, usually I rush and read the books all in the same day, then I end up mad at myself because I have to wait for the next one to come out. I discovered that I can't do that, cause if I put it down, and read a library book, then picked it up, or waited a few days

My mind is blown! Saven Defiance is so damn good! I am just so in love with this series, and once I pick up one of Siobhan Davis' books to read, I can't put it down till I'm finished; sleep be damned! There wasn't anything I disliked about this book, and once I was finished reading, I just felt gobsmacked! There are so many events and revelations in this book! And I am so excited for the next book!

The Cliffhanger Queen has done it again!

Saven Defiance does not miss a beat. The action picks up right where it left off in Saven Denial. If Saven Denial is the book which reveals Sadie’s past, Saven Defiance is the book which reveals the past of the parental generation of the book series and I was surprised on all accounts. Twist after twist and secret after secret is exposed. But don’t worry, there is still a lot left open for the final book

I'm not sure if I can even get across in writing how much I love this series. Siobhan Davis is hands down one of the best YA authors writing today. She has mastered her art. She creates wonderful characters, creates amazing worlds, and provides them with solid, entertaining storylines.

Saven Defiance is the 3rd book in the Saven Series. We return to Sadie and Logan's story right where Saven Denial left off, so from

Recommends it for: anyone with an interest in YA or Dystopian books
Words fail me
Saven Defiance is the third in the Saven series by author Siobhan Davis with a novella called Saven Denial as 2.5. I recommend you read them all in order as there is a natural progression and each book will leave you wanting more.
Are some things better left in the past? Sadie finally finds out about her past and in doing so finally understands her connection to Ax. With the best will in the world, it is hard loving two people especially if you can't remember one of them. What happen

4.0 out of 5 stars Darkest in Series that Continues to Enchant Lovers of Romantic YA Fantasy
Saven Defiance, Siobhan Davis's fourth Saven series book, was a compelling read with plenty of action and romantic tension between Sadie and the two aliens who love her -- Logan and Ax. There are plenty of twists in this installment, which is by far the darkest of Siobhan's books. I loved how multi-faceted her characters are -- even supporting ones you care about and identify with their pain, sacrifice an

I'm a big fan of series, it allows me to stay in the world with characters I love for longer. This book doesn't fail to tick that need.

Getting to spend more time with Sadie, Logan, Haydn, Neve and everyone else is a big win...even if they have to go through things you don't want your friends to deal with. There is a lot that happens, one thing that happened [that I don't want to spoil] brought me to tears. That shows just how many mad skillz Siobhan has. Including the fact, that there were many

Woah. Just woah. So many new revelations! So many unexpected connections! I read another review that said "this book gave me a book hangover." That is quite possibly the most accurate review I've ever read! I finished 'Saven Defiance' this morning, and I have to say, it will take me a while to recover!

I really enjoyed learning more about the eterno connection, and exactly what it means to have an eterno bond with someone. If only it were possible for humans... And I loved learning about backgro

Saven Defiance is amazing! I am in love with this series! Once I start each new book, there is no putting it down!! This book picked up right where the last one ended on a huge cliffhanger! I can't wait for the rest of the series! Great Author who continually writes great books and keeps you interested from the very first page to the very last page.

If anyone were to ask me what this book was about I don’t think I could answer that question. Defiance was littered with subplot after subplot and then bombshell after bombshell that it just gave me headaches from all the confusing and unnecessary paths the book took. Seriously, almost every chapter ended with a huge revelation or cliffhanger. It’s like the author didn’t know how to make the main plot interesting enough to keep her readers invested, so she had to add these bombshells in every cr ...more

I give this book a ranking of about 4.75 stars

I'll admit there were a few moments that didn't grip me like the previous novels in this series (thus the partial star rating). That being said...this book contained many thrilling experiences, some fast paced and some outright frightening. Sadie loses a friend...gets mixed up in a slightly messed up love triangle...discovers an unrealized family bond...and on and on and on.

This book delivered all the twists and turns I've come to expect from books i
