Beyond Reach by Siobhan Davis (book 2 of The Calling)
**I was invited to read this book by author Siobhan Davis via Netgalley**
Synopsis per Goodreads:
Back on Earth, Ariana is caught in a dangerous crossfire between clandestine rebel organization Clementia and the power-hungry government. Refusing to divulge the location of the secret information entrusted to her by her late father, she desperately tries to bargain for her Mom, Lily, and Cal’s rescue. She’s fighting a losing battle, and the clock is ticking.
Presented with evidence of her fiancé Cal’s apparent betrayal, she loyally defends him despite her concerns. With her emotions in turmoil, matters become even more complicated as she grows closer to her ex-boyfriend Zane.
When the stakes are raised, a succession of shocking revelations rocks her world, setting her on a path that will not only change her destiny but the fate of humanity.
Confronted by a memory so abhorrent comes a truth she would do anything to forget.
But some things just can’t be undone.
I was thrilled to be asked by the author to read and review, if anyone who reads this follows my blog actively, knows that I am a HUGE fan of The Calling (book 1).
This book picks up where book 1 left off. Ariana is on Earth, without Cal and her family. She's involved with a rebel group called Clementia, which to me seemed just as bad as being on Nova, she traded one slave government for another.
I really cant go into too much detail within the book, you'll just have to read it to find out for yourself, I would hate to give away spoilers, but there were lots of twists and turns and surprise reveals in this one. Lots of action, mixed with inward turmoil of being with Zane, and being without Cal. Conflicts with other characters and rebel members, and a cliffhanger ending of course!
Once again the author took me inside the book and made me feel what the characters felt, and the imagination behind the writing was simply amazing, there aren't enough praises I could give for the world and character building. I was hooked from start to finish. I loved this story, I can't wait for book 3 to come out!
