review ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Õ Siobhan Davis

Is it her destiny to save them or destroy themNow that Tori finally understands who she is and what’s expected of her she’s in full on freak out mode How will she save the galaxy from General Arantu’s clutches when she can’t even control her powers Add that to the lack of retaliation by enemy alien forces and everyone is on edge Especially when they uncover evidence of a strange alie. The Lost Savior the first book in the Alinthia series failed to wow me in the way I had hoped and if the comments on my review are any indication I sent the wrong message when trying to explain why I wasn’t blown away by the story I was unsure as to whether I would give the second book The Secret Heir a read but in the end my curiosity won out With a little bit of luck I’ll do better explaining why I’ve yet to be blown away by this seriesIn truth my feelings towards The Secret Heir were extremely mixed I’m a big Siobhan Davis fan have enjoyed all her work adored most of it yet The Secret Heir is the first time where I was a bit disappointed by a story The Secret Heir managed to pull an array of emotions from me yet it wasn’t in the way Siobhan Davis books usually pull emotions from meWhen I started The Secret Heir I was feeling uite happy with the story In fact I started this book believing it would be the four star rating The Lost Savior failed to pull out of me I was into the events and the characters than I had been in the first book and I believed this was because I finally had an understanding of them At this point I was plenty willing to dig deeper into the storyAs things progressed my feelings started to change somewhat I was overjoyed when the things I’d been hoping for of in the first book appeared yet I soon found myself disappointed when they were not taken to the extreme I had hoped they would be You see the main thing I wanted of was the worldbuilding I adored the Saven series and I was hoping for a repeat of the wonderful worldbuilding we had seen in that series When this one took us away from Earth I was than ready for the universe to open up to me Unfortunately the worldbuilding in this one uickly hit a dead end In many ways rather than being shown the wonderful universe hovering in the distance we were told about it We get lots of discussion without experiencing the universe Even the nod to the Saven series if you’ve yet to read it you should it’s one of my all time favourite young adult science fiction series wasn’t taken as far as it could have been To me with this one everything seemed to sit just out of reach Hence why I felt disappointed about the worldbuildingWhen we returned to Earth a part of me had hoped Siobhan Davis would start to throw in her usual twists and turns that I would be shocked by the information being given For around the second half of the book however I wasn’t blown away In fact there were points where my rating dropped to a two star rating something that has never happened with Siobhan Davis before I find there is almost always one book from a favourite author that you do not enjoy in the way you usually enjoy their books and for me that Siobhan Davis book is The Secret HeirYou see I found all the things that took place in the second half of the book far too predictable Nothing shocked me leaving me mentally rolling my eyes at the predictability This is why I was disappointed with The Secret Heir Siobhan Davis always throws in twists and turns and whilst there have been some predictable ones in the past nothing has ever been as obvious as the second half of this book With how many things were thrown in with how many new elements were introduced and past aspects were twisted this one should have caught me off guard with at least one thing It didn’t and such a thing sadden me The usual Siobhan Davis shock was missing with this one and I found it difficult to enjoy the things being introduced when I’d worked them all out Even the ending the usual Siobhan Davis cliff hanger failed to grab me Usually the endings leave me desperate for the next book to see how things come together but I’d worked it out and simply gave an ‘okay’ before picking up my next read – which was not book three The Warrior PrincessIn many ways I believe the Saven series has ruined me for future young adult science fiction series The Saven series set the bar so high and I cannot help but consider how much the Alinthia series pales in comparison With The Lost Savior I thought it may have been a case of personal preference but with The Secret Heir I think it is safe to say this series simply isn’t winning me overYou see I enjoyed the reverse harem element a lot in this second book Reverse harem is not my go to when it comes to reading I feel as though I gave the impression I hated it in my review of The Lost Savior yet such is not the case I’m simply extremely picky with my reverse harem and due to this very rarely read it When I pick up the right book or series though I’m than happy to keep reading My big issue usually is that authors do not give all the characters the attention they deserve Multiple characters are introduced and in no time at all we know which character is the author’s favourite The others fade into the background until it comes to the steamy scenes at which point everyone returns so the author can play out certain scenarios It gets boring when such a thing plays out and I’ve seen it happen far too oftenWith The Secret Heir however I did come to appreciate all of the boys I do believe there is a tiny bit of favouritism to be seen but as a whole things are a lot eual than in many of the other books I have read in the genre Due to this I believe Siobhan Davis may be one of the authors where I will willing read her other reverse harem releases The thing that has me less willing to read such stories was done well here and I’m willing to take the dive into other such stories by the author This is why I opted for the three star rating in the end despite my mixed feelings towards the book I do wish to say however that I finally understand some of the reviews I have read on other Siobhan Davis books in the past In the second half of the book when I wasn’t as sucked in as I usually was I understood the negative comments some people have made about the slut shaming that occurs in a few of the author’s books When I’m sucked in deep I find myself overlooking it – it is a part of the story that I understand and accept However when I wasn’t sucked in deep it did seem a bit excessive I now understand those reviews I have once raised an eyebrow to In part I think a big reason why I noticed it so much in this one was because of the age of the characters This series started as young adult but has uickly become new adult With the way characters behave and certain elements that play out I believe this series would have done much better being new adult from the start Therefore I’m labelling this under the ‘this is what Sarah J Maas has done to young adult books’ category I have going on in my head I’m not going to go into what side of the debate I fall on when it comes to Sarah J Maas books I’m simply pointing out young adult books seem to have become much explicit and it seemed to start around the time everyone started to pick up Sarah J Maas With the Alinthia series I think I would have been much happier had it been solidly in the new adult genre from the start – this kind of story just doesn’t feel right to me with young adult characters Even though we are drifting firmly into the new adult category my initial response was young adult and my brain is stuck in that young adult mindsetOverall as you can see my feelings towards this series continue to be mixed I’m now stuck with the debate as to whether I wish to continue reading the series or whether I am going to call it uits On the one hand my mind is begging for me to continue – this is Siobhan Davis she usually wins you over and you’re obsessed On the other hand my mind is reminding me of all the other books I have to read – including other Siobhan Davis books I’m sure to enjoy Maybe I will continue maybe I won’t I guess we’re going to have to wait and see – with how strong my Siobhan Davis addiction is I fear it may be the former but I have no wish to say just yet
