5 Star accolades from Readers Favorite:

"True Calling by Siobhan Davis is a perfect blend of reality TV dating show meets super high-tech sci-fi meets teenage drama meets government conspiracies, and I had an absolute thrill reading it." Faridah Nassozi
 
 "True Calling takes you on a stimulating journey, then screeches to an abrupt halt, leaving you dead in your tracks, screaming for more." Cheryl E. Rodriguez
 
"This is the type of book that you'll recommend to everyone you know and definitely one that you'll want to read again." Samantha Rivera
 
"This is a fantastic young adult sci-fi read and I have to say, even as an adult, I enjoyed every moment of it. The writing flows and creates a world with a government that is not an unfamiliar story in teen-fiction these days, but this is a fresh and interesting take on it." Kathryn Bennett
 
"One minute I thought I had the story figured out, but when I turned to the next page, there was another surprise waiting for me. All I know is I can't wait for the next installment." Trisha Dawn

From the Author

I write young adult science-fiction fantasy romance. I am well aware that a planet located twelve hundred miles from Earth is not realistic for a whole heap of reasons, however, I needed to position Planet Novo close to Earth to support the plot. I've used a considerable amount of creative license and it was necessary in order to tell the story the way I wanted. If you can't suspend belief, or you only enjoy factual or hard science fiction, then this is not the book for you. I would also like to advise that there is a cliff hanger in this book, so it is not a standalone story. Thank you for taking the time to check out my work.

MY THOUGHTS
What really drew me into this book was, yes, I admit it, the cover. I have an attraction to covers featuring space, and while this book was not exactly what I was expecting, I was not disappointed!

This book takes place on Planet Novo, which is a man-made planet in the atmosphere of Earth to protect people from the dangers currently going on Earth. Not everyone is on Earth, though, only the smartest and the healthiest got to live on Novo. Ari's family is among them and life is just fine, except for these strange, realistic dreams she has of a person named Zane, whom she has never met. Then, the Novo government places The Calling, in which all 17 year olds will basically be in forced marriages, in order to increase the low population.

At first, I was doubtful about this book, as I felt like it was beginning to sound very similar to Matched. Then, as the book went on, I begin to ignore the similarities and began to really enjoy this book. What really made it was the romance! I'm usually annoyed by the romance in books, but I adored this one! Cal and Ari are just perfect for one another and you can tell that they love each other! Sure, the romance was a bit cheesy, but what's romance without some cheesiness?

I was fully expecting this book to be all about The Calling, but that's only the tip of the iceberg. There actually ended up being a Part II (there's more than 2 parts by the way) which is from Zane's perspective, yes, the same Zane that Ari has dreams about. Zane is on Earth, where things are not the best, and is in a resistance that is against both the government on Earth and Novo. At first, I wasn't really into Zane's perspective, I was really interesting in what was going on with Ari, but I quickly grew into his perspective.

This is the first space book that I have read, and I know I will be reading more books like this in the future!!

I don't want to really compare this book to others, but I saw bits of other books that I have read in this one. I saw the Selection with her having to pick a husband and The Hunger Games with the rebels and government trying to control everything after Earth has a not so good turn of events.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and had a hard time finding time to give it the attention it deserved. My work doesn't allow us electronics so I wasn't able to read it while the kids were asleep, though I desperately wanted to. Then coming home I was dealing with being sick as well as having to do work paperwork. I was sad, but still tried to get at least a chapter in a night. Once I finally go the time, I sat down and refused to do anything until I was able to finish the book up. Now my problem is, I WANT THE NEXT BOOK!!

This book has so much going on. You have Ariana who is having trouble with the idea of being forced to get married and have children. She is trying to figure out who Zane is in her dreams. She also is trying to figure out why Cal won't leave her alone. As all of this gets sorted out, you get more and more sucked into the pages.

I usually pick one guy that I want the character to end up with when there is a love triangle, but I seriously can't pick one. I would be happy with her being with either one. Just when you think she is final on one of them something happens at the very end of the book that leaves you with a cliffhanger of how things will turn up. I think Zane is a sweetheart and I like him very much. He is modest and tries not to hurt anyone feelings.

I was hooked by this book because of its cover, and I'd been eagerly trying to get through my reading list to start reading this one. Based on the description, I had high hopes for this book, although I knew I would have to go into it suspending some belief about planet physics, which I didn't really mind. I'm happy to say that it didn't disappoint in the slightest. I absolutely loved it!

At the beginning, this book reminded me of Matched, but I liked that series so I didn't mind. I felt like I had to suspend some belief about The Calling at the beginning just because it doesn't seem like something a government would do, and it doesn't seem like the best option for rebuilding the population. But I did think the premise was interesting, and I could really see the story going somewhere with it, so again, I didn't mind. As I got further into the book, the government's motives--and Zolt Rada's--made more sense to me.

There were a lot of good things about this book. I liked the author's writing style and voice, and I liked the characters. The pacing was well done, too.

The Zane story line was very intriguing and expertly crafted. I liked that you get constant reminders of him just enough to spark curiosity. At the same time, I was also engrossed in the rest of the story that it wasn't frustrating to not get all the answers about him right away. Part 2 gave the book more momentum and got me more intrigued with him all while wondering how the story would end.

This book definitely has elements of other popular dystopians in it, but that's understandable since they're all part of the same genre. Alone, this book makes a fantastic story!

I'll be reading the next ones in the series (I already bought the box set!). I see that it's now free, and I'd definitely say it's worth the download.
