I’ve fallen hard for an alien, but he’s harboring secrets.
Massive secrets that threaten the very essence of humanity.
How can I give him my heart when his race plans on taking my future?

Sadie Owens has been slowly dying inside. Bit by bit, piece by piece, day by day. Trapped in a life she hates, she relies on only one person—herself.

Despised by her family and betrayed by an unscrupulous government, Sadie dreams of a different life. When she is chosen to participate in the government’s new social experiment, she is ecstatic at the prospect of spending six months in Thalassic City, the shiny new city under the sea.

Immediately drawn to Logan Chandler, Sadie is captivated by the beautiful boy with the ocean-blue eyes. Logan seems to embody everything that has been forbidden, but he isn’t all he appears to be.

Confused over Logan’s true intentions and concerned when best friend Jenna starts transforming in front of her eyes, Sadie partners with newcomer Jarod in a bid to uncover the government’s real agenda. The truth is more shocking than anything she could ever have imagined.

When Sadie finally understands why the Saven walk among us, will it be too late to save her heart and the human race?

My Thoughts:

What a thrilling, heartbreaking, and roller coaster book! I just was completely enthralled with this book from the first. Now, let me just ramble.

Seven Deception is a YA Science Fiction Romance novel. What I love about this book is the world created. Davis has done an superb job of explaining the world and the characteristics. I also love how the Science Fiction in this book is not stereotypical. Yes, there are dystopian elements in this book, but it isn’t the Hunger Games done all over again. I love the entire underwater world creation and how the alien race that is so mysterious. Boy, it is really cool. Thalassic City is the imaginary world where this book takes place. There is so many twists and turns. Nothing is as black and white. There is something brewing and the Davis has done an excellent job.

Sadie is the main narrator of this book. She is spunky and has a lot of strength. I love that Sadie isn’t a push over. She is clearly unhappy with the way of her life and she is from the lower faction. Instead of complaining and wasting pages rambling about how unfair, Sadie fights to make the life she wants. I love that about her.

Logan is the main hero in this book. I had mixed feeling about him at times. He was mysterious and his half lies was kind of annoying at times. However, I can see where he comes from. I just wish that Davis had incorporated his POV into this book so I could understand him better. But Logan is still extremely swoony. He is just a fine piece of male specimen. Well, he is much more.

The entire plot line of this book was extremely well paced. I love that there were many twists and turns. The best part of this book is that the romance was very well incorporated. Sadie and Logan do not get off on the right start. I love that Sadie does not go all hormonal on him and sets him straight. I love that Sadie does not take any of Logan’s crap. Both of them balance each other out. Except, the one thing I wished that was more involved was a little more angst. That would have been nice.

Well done Davis! I can’t wait to read the next book of the series. This is my first book of yours and I cannot wait to devour all of your books. I highly recommend this book for Science Fiction and Romance lovers.
