Readers love Beyond Reach! "There was not a single page in this book that was not full of excitement and adventure. I loved True Calling but Beyond Reach has taken the story to a whole new level. Best book of 2015 so far." Coxy88.blogspot.co.uk
"Siobhan Davis is a cliff-hanger queen! She knows exactly how to build tensions in a scene and drop a bomb that leaves you wanting more." Books A Novel Idea
"This book managed to surprise me quite a few times and the twists towards the end might have been the most surprising of them all, it was really well done." Lola's Book Reviews
"Trying to think of words to describe this book. Wow, epic, brilliant, OMG, just don't cover it. If you liked Book 1 you will love this book." Goodreads Reviewer
"OMG. That is pretty much all I can say to properly express this book. I loved the first book very much, but this....*input words when thought of.* This book sucked me in and left me speechless." Paradise Of Pages
"Page one and the action, characters, twists and tension just kept bursting out...Talk about a story coming to life under the skill of a brilliant author! Siobhan Davis' world goes beyond gripping, nail-biting and gut-clenching into a realm of action and atmosphere on steroids." Tome Tender
"It's been so long since I've been this emotionally invested in a book/series. Beyond Reach is fast-paced and heart-wrenching. In other series love triangles are just thrown in for the heck of it but Davis doesn't do that, and it's really quite refreshing. " RamblingB00ks
"This was a really awesome sequel! If you enjoy great sci-fi dystopias, I recommend this series." Psychotic Nerd
From the Author
I recommend reading the stories in this series in the following sequence:
OMG. That is pretty much all I can say to properly express this book. I loved the first book very much, but this.....*input words when thought of*
The author does such a good job of tying the books together. There were small hints here or there in the first book that pop up in this book. I wanted to jump up and scream "I KNEW IT!!" but I refrained so I didn't scare my dog to the point of heart failure. She does such a good job of giving you little tidbits of information but not revealing it until way later in the books, sometimes it seems you won't know until the next book.
This book is set back on Earth in various location around the compound that Ariana and Zane are in. You get detailed descriptions as you go, so even if it still has futuristic qualities to it, you are able to picture it all as you go.
As in the first book, I still can't decide who I want Ariana with. I was thinking that one boy would win out over the other, but it didn't happen. I still love Cal as well as Zane. I have a slight lean towards Zane, but it changed back and forth through the book. The way the book ended put me slighty towards Zane, but again I think that could very well change in the next book. The way the book ended gave me the feeling that the next book will have some important information come out right away for me to be able to decide once and for all.
Ariana did seem very selfish to me in this book. I do understand it all, but she does tend to hurt people with her actions along the way. I still really like her as a character but there are times when I want to strangle her for what she does. She gets so single minded in her ways that the rest of the world seems oblivious to her. When she finally realizes what she has done, she curls into a shell of guilt. I have seen her grow so much from the first book and I know she is about to change even more before the trilogy is over.
Zane is one of my favorite characters. He is so sweet in all that he does, though I can also say he is pretty single minded as well. He doesn't intentionally hurt anyone which is so sweet. Even when he does make mistakes bigger than he ever imagined, Ari is all that he still sees. That kind of devotion is so heartwarming.
There are other characters that show up in this book that you met here or there in the first book, but you really get to meet them in this book. Most of them give you a huge sense of anger that you wish you were in the book to make them pay for all they do to others. It is amazing the amount of emotion the author can pull out of you as you read along.
The book is a longer book compared to a lot of books coming out, but it wasn't a book that felt drawn out. Each and everything she types into words is important. The smallest things pop up later in the book to have a bigger meaning than you could ever have thought. She is able to write scenes that are slower but still drag you further and further into the world that you are devouring with your eyes. I read quite a bit of books, and even if I give something 5 stars, it doesn't mean that it completely floored me. This book has sucked me in and left me speechless when I ended it.
The author in her typical style of the last book has left us with a huge cliffhanger. She gave so many little hints that there is something huge about to happen, but she left you with all of it at the end. You want to scream and say that you need the next book. In a good way though :) It isn't the type of ending that leaves you angry. It is a very suspenseful that will leave me wanting to bite my nails (which I don't even do!) until the next and final book of the trilogy finally comes out so I can get all my answers!!
non spoiler review: super loved the book. first one was much better (like most are) but the second kept with the plot and didn't take too much time recapping in the intro. it's very action packed, and i'm happy that Ariana's consistently written as a strong female main character, who isn't a super whiny teenager like many female leads are. She's very smart and has a wonderful vocabulary (minus a couple editing/spelling errors). She does her best to help everyone, and for a 17 year old she's very motherly and nurturing to her siblings. The love triangle between Zane, Cal, and Ariana is still interesting, though a little over-done, though I know this is likely for the younger audience and not someone in their mid-20's reading a YA novel. My only small complaint is that every other page is some new huge plot twist and it even got me tired reading all of it happening so fast (but yet was never boring, just a lot to take in). Also the romantic dialogue of "i love you" "no i love you more" " no *i* love YOU more" could have been cut out a bit... otherwise my attention is still peaked and I'm starting the third book!
-------------------------------------- possible spoiler review: as mentioned above, i know the excessive love triangle is mostly for the younger audience, it got to the point where i'd skip whole sections. there'd be pages of them talking about how much they love each other. Cal needed to be reassured of Ariana's love every 12 minutes, and though he was my favorite choice for her, if my boyfriend was that clingy and needy I'd be concerned. Same with Zane. With the previews of him in Ariana's dreams and visions he seemed mysterious and loving, but oh my god he's just a whiny, clingy baby, and honestly creepily obsessed with her. Again if he were a real person, I'd run far away from him. But I was torn because half the time he was a normal guy who genuinely cared for her and is very level headed, but he's so clingy and it was exhausting to read. He quickly became my least favorite choice for Ariana. I think the author added his narration way too soon.
This book for me was just as good as the first. I was a little frustrated with Ari in the book only because I was reading Zane's POV and how much he loves her. I know it is not her fault that she can't remember him but still! There was plenty of action and twists to keep me entertained. That dang cliffhanger has me frustrated yet yearning for the next book to know what happens.
