Confused by the government-sanctioned memory erase and distressed at her impending forced marriage and motherhood, Ariana’s plans for the future are thrown into complete disarray.
As the traumatic events within her family life enfold, Ariana grows increasingly alarmed at the authorities apparent pre-occupation with her and feels progressively more isolated and alone.
Her growing feelings for fellow Cadet Cal Remus intensify as the recently announced pageant, ‘The Calling’, gets underway. Struggling to comprehend the continuous, inexplicable dreams of the mysterious Zane, discovering the past helps shape her future, with devastating personal consequences.
You can find True Calling on Goodreads
Siobhan Davis’ True Calling is her debut dystopian Sci Fi YA novel filled with romance, suspense ladened plot that keeps you turning the page.
I really liked “True Calling” much more than I expected since it took me awhile to get into it, However, because of the talented author, I found myself immersed in Ari’s world. The main character, Ari is a teeneaged military cadet who lives on a terraformed planet created as a haven for the people of the dying earth due to natural disasters and bioterrorism. The planet is named Novo and is insanely uptight..
Novo is filled with super healthy, biologically perfect people living in an extremely controlled society. From food to free time, everything is portioned out precisely.
Now imagine having to come of age in a place like that?? It would make a rebel of even the nicest person at some time, and Ari is no different. Even romance betweeen teenagers are controlled and even televised.
Great start to a very promising career in scifi!
