"Fans of The Selection/Hunger Games/Matched will really enjoy this book … it's amazing!"

Over 1000 Five and Four-Star Ratings for the series on Goodreads.

Welcome to Novo: Your new home in Space

For Ariana Skyee, Planet Novo was everything it promised to be until the authorities introduced "The Calling" as their response to repopulation. Now, all seventeen-year-olds are to participate in this Bachelor-style pageant to find their perfect match, marry, and have children.

But that's not Ariana's only concern. Thanks to the government-sanctioned memory erase, Ariana has no recollection of Zane, the mystery boy who haunts her dreams. Things are further complicated when the pageant commences and her feelings for fellow Cadet Cal Remus intensify. Together, they start to realize not everything about their new home is as it seems.

Entangled in a dangerous web of deceit, Ariana sets out to identify the truth. Conflicted over warnings that Cal isn’t trustworthy and alarmed at the government's increasing interest in her, she doesn’t know where to turn. But her search for the truth comes at a high personal price. When her world implodes, discovering the past shapes her future with devastating consequences.

Note from the Author:
This series is written in US English.
There is a strong romance theme in True Calling, and if you only enjoy hard science fiction then this is not the book for you. This book contains a cliff hanger and it is not a stand-alone read. Thank you for taking the time to check out my work.

Format: Paperback
I was given this book for free for a read and review.
I really enjoyed the concept of this book and found it quite interesting that they used such high technology to erase memories of people that the families left on earth. I really connected with the main character and I love how love has a way of breaking down barriers even when the memories have been erased - Ari still remembered Zane.

One thing that bothered me about the book is that Ari hated Cal for the first what 5 chapters in the book and then in the next one she is practically jumping into bed with him. I just don't feel like you would change your feelings for someone overnight.

Other than that I really enjoyed it, by the second chapter I was completely hooked and couldn't put it down. I am very thankful that Siobhan sent me the second one in the trilogy so that I can continue with Ari and her adventure.
My heart broke for her at the ending!

The book was written beautifully and, even though, there are over 400 pages it went back extremely fast. Siobhan has a way of hooking you in so that you have to continue reading to know the ending, her character are very easy to connect with and fall in love with. By the end, I wasn't sure which guy I was rooting for.

I can't wait to continue!
Thank you again Sioban Davis!

I was pretty hesitant to pick up True Calling by Siobhan Davis. To be honest, it just seemed like it was going to be like every other dystopian YA book; a crumbling world divided into sectors that force their young adults to participate in some awful testing that controls their future until one otherwise normal girl defies the odds and changes her fate. Don’t get me wrong, True Calling does mix all the good elements we’ve seen before in the Hunger Games, Divergent, etc., but there is a new, unique take on the dystopian competitiveness and some much appreciated imagination.

“The Calling” is basically the world’s worst reality dating show, where all eligible seventeen year olds compete in a glamorized ‘dating game’ scenario to determine their best mate for them to wed and then breed three children before they are 23. Think The Bachelor, but with Katnis’s elaborate prep team from the Hunger Games and an American Idol-like voting system. I hate these kinds of reality shows and I really expected to hate this as a premise for a book, but it was such a refreshing change from competitions that involve killing other kids and violence.

The first part of the book is told from Ariana’s point of view. Ariana seems strong willed, but she also seems to have a bit of a weak spine. She isn’t all that impressed with being told who she has to marry, but she doesn’t totally rebel against it and even gets a bit excited about it in the beginning. She warmed up really quickly to Cal, whom she supposedly hated and didn’t understand why other girls fawned over him, but his persistence and compliments was all it took for her to cower.

ARC provided by author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
The first word that comes to my mind after finishing reading True Calling is Amazing. This book is simply amazing. Every single page of this book was action packed and fast paced. It was a quick and easy read, which was exactly what i needed.

I really enjoyed the world building and the setting of this book. The technology that they used got me suprised and the story development was awseome. All through the book, you never knew which chracters were trustworthy and that was an aspect that kept me stuck to this book overnight.

The protagonist, Ariana Skyee, was a independent and resilient seventeen year old who really believes in her opinions. She doubts of the goverment's real intentions and she wants to have things her way. The fact that she was such a strong character made me love her even more as a protagonist.

The romance in this book was good. All through the book, I didn't like Cal because I always felt like he was part of a plan even though he was nice to Ariana and her family. I really didn't trust him.

When I requested this book on NetGalley, I had no idea of what to expect and not to my suprise, I was pleased by how much this book was awseome. I have no regrets.

I recommend this to anyone who enjoyed The Hunger Games and Matched. I can't wait till Book 2 comes out
