It's been a while since I bought and read this book and in these weeks it sort of grew on me, so here goes. Basically, it's a dark and disturbing story with some young adult protagonists which, IMO, doesn't automatically make it "a YA book". Think (no comparisons here) Carrie by Mr. King: would you call it YA? The Savior is different from Carrie in that it's the opposite of supernatural: all the terrible events are firmly grounded in the very sick but very human mind of Dennis, the antagonist. At the same time, it just shows how vulnerable our young are and how open to the horrors of this world. I would recommend this book to all parents of teenage children so that they finally wake up to their kids' complex inner selves. Hopefully, we can save them from the "saviors" of this world.

The plot was intriguing, which is why I spent money on this book. I'm now suffering from buyer's remorse. The biggest problem I have with this book is that it was entirely too long at 100 chapters. If a novel is truly engrossing, that's one thing, but this was not the case. This plot could have easily been resolved in half the amount of writing that went on in this thing--by the end of the it, I really had nothing invested in any of the characters. I actually felt like the writing was a reflection of the subject matter: superficial and callous, with little depth or emotion.

LimerenceMag.com Review 4 1/2 stars

The Savior by Natasha Salnikova is a chilling psychological thriller about a group of girls that are lured into a demonic group by a man named Dennis. He uses his brother's special "talent" for talking to God to manipulate the girls in very disturbing ways.

When I first started reading the book, I was immediately drawn into the world the author created. The characters were perfectly developed and I loved the twin girls, Violet and Lily. The storyline starts off very dark with a murder/suicide and only gets darker from there when Lily is invited into the group. There were many times where the plot had an unexpected twist, which always makes for a good read.

While I would love to give The Savior five stars, there was a good 75 pages where I felt like I was reading the same thing, just in different ways. There were so many interesting details in the first half of the book that when I hit this dry spot, I was very disappointed. There was an added love story in this part that I personally didn't think fit, but others would probably love.

The author did come back with more excitement in the last quarter of the book and it had a phenomenal ending. I don't know if there will be a sequel to The Savior, but I'm certainly hoping so.

I would recommend this book for adults who love a good thriller. Natasha Salnikova has become one of my new favorite indie authors and I hope you give this book a chance.

Characters are flat, plot is unrealistic. Not so bad that I couldn't read it, but I was anxious to finish it and put it behind me.

An interesting book that I had to complete to make sure justice was done. Not a book I would read again as it is too disturbing. So like the cults of the world today. So sad to think evil minds exist today. A real need for more mental health care in the USA.
A real scare,to parents raising children today especially ones who have mental and DEFIANT problems. Found this Dennis a,disgusting individual who needed more help then his mentally challenged brother whom he refused to give him his meds.

Not a favorite reading. Would not recommend.

While the book wasn't bad, the writing tended to be rather choppy and disorganized. But I did finish it! Not so bad then.

This book was something I haven't read in a long time. The concept of a religious cult introducing drugs to keep the followers in line was something right out of a movie.
The author was descriptive in all the right ways without being annoying or overly technical.
The ending threw me off as it was not what I was expecting, but it was a good read for sure.
