I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

I was really excited for this book, especially after how the the second book ended and how this book had to wrap everything up. I had a lot of expectations, but this book proved to be even better than I expected. This is without a doubt the best book this author has written so far, I loved it from the start till the end. The start of this book was brilliant, starting with some big revelations. I had predicted one of them, but was blown away by the other one. It was amazing to start a book like this, fast paced in the middle of all the drama. And it didn't slow down after that, keeping up a steady pace. What I like most about the revelations is that looking back you can see the hints Siobhan planted and everything just fits into place, it makes sense and I loved that. I'll definitely will re-read the whole trilogy eventually to appreciate the foreshadowing even more.

From the moment I started this book I just wanted to keep reading. I spend quite some evenings going to bed later than planned as I stayed up longer reading this book. It was just so well written and there was so much going on. The story was very interesting and it kept my attention, there were no slow parts. Although there were a few military/ war scenes I liked less as I don't like reading about that. So many people die and don't make it and it was heart wrenching reading about it. I did like that the story wasn't only focussed on the battle, it also focussed on the technological battle and there are also big parts that are more about the characters, personal changes and even a few really happy and uplifting scenes. It was really a mix of emotions.

This book was an emotional rollercoaster, from sadness, apprehension, to being scared, to being happy.

I am going to keep my review short since my post is already long. Wow it is over I just finished this epic romantic sci-fi trilogy.... I just need a minute too....cry....
I can never handle it when an amazing book series comes to an end! This YA sci-fi series has the best love triangle, well developed characters, and fast paced unpredictable plots. Destiny Rising is the best of the series. Most of the twists you do not see coming and will leave you catching your breath. The characters' relationships and individual stories are well managed and have satisfying conclusions. The plot is fast paced and the ending is perfect unlike a lot of other YA books that leave you angry for sticking with the series. There isn't any other YA sci-fi romance series out there like this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING Sci-fi, Romance Series! 27 November 2015
By B Truly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
AMAZING Sci-Fi, Romance Series!

This series would make a great movie saga. This review has a hell of a lot of spoilers.

Ari:

Arianna is one of my favorite YA characters. I like the fact that she is constant. Also that she stands up and fights for what she believes in. I was okay with the mistakes Ari made because she is human. We all make mistakes. The difference being; Ari admitted and owned up to hers. I think that is what makes her a strong honorable person.
Ari was put in a horrible situation and she did the best she could. I liked the fact that Ari stayed true to Cal. Yes…Ari admitted that she still loved, Zane, and even kissed him a few times. But to me; it would not have been as realistic if she didn’t waver or have uncertainties. Ari had her memories stripped from her mind. Her 1st love was taken from her. Life is a bitch! Sometimes, I do believe things happen for a reason, but they work out the way they should.

I normally root for a heroine’s first love. With the True Calling series, I guess it’s how you view it. Technically, Cal was Ari’s 2nd. But for the readers, Cal was our 1st. I’m Team Cal. That’s never wavered.

What’s refreshing about this series was that Ari chose her 2nd love. I had my doubts along the way. Ari and Zane had a rare psychic connection, both having mind abilities. Plus, Ari had Zane’s love stolen from her. I felt like what Cal said was true. “Right now, you don’t remember. But if your memories return, you may then realize that you love him more than me.”
I think that’s a very true statement. That thought had me worried sick because there was indecision when Ari did remember that she loved Zane. I was Damn delighted when Ari declared she loved Cal more. Even though they didn’t share a physic bond; there was just something magnetic about their relationship that made it so special.

The main concept of this novel or at least my perception is; fate can choose your soul-mate, but you can choose your own destiny. I believe Arianna and Zane were fated to be together. But as Ari stated; life chances….things change. Ariana rose up and chose her destiny to be with Cal. Ari choosing Cal, her 2nd love is not typical in other stories, making it more unique. It was never about Ari’s 1st love. The irony to this series is that Ari choose her destiny to be with her 2nd, and that’s the love she fought for.

Zane:

Zane turned out to be a good guy. He grew on me, and I was able to connect with him in book 3. I found myself wanting him to be happy and find love. He deserved it. I just didn’t want him to find love with Arianna.
Zane was dealt an unfair stack of cards in life. In books 1 & 2, one of the issues I had with Zane, was his longing for Arianna. I wanted him to man up, and grow a pair. If it was meant for them to be together, then it would have played out that way.
In book 3, Zane started off in a coma. I was relieved to find out that Zane was still alive. That relief was short lived when I wasn’t sure what Ari’s decision would be.
I actually enjoyed being in Zane’s head in this book. I could sympathize more with him. When Zane accepted that it was not mean for him and Ari to be together, I thought, hallelujah! Long overdue. I respected him more as a man when he finally let her go, but I felt his heartache. I didn’t want him to be in pain.

Cal:

There’s so much to say about Cal, being so smitten for him. He’s a rare blond that I have rooted for. I loved his playful personality and his bad boy appeal. Cal’s hilarious and I thought he had the best lines in the series. I also loved the way he loved Ariana. Zane loved her just as much. But it was Cal’s love that I adored.
Another characteristic I liked about Cal was his morals and standards. As the series went on, it was thrown out there that Cal might be a traitor. I never believed it because I’d always believed in him. Cal fought for what he believed was right, and he had a good heart. He also didn’t play games. Cal wasn’t going to deal with ploys of the twisted triangle. Cal told Ari that from the beginning. He loved her wholeheartedly, but was not going to have his heart trampled on. I respect that. At one part in this story, Cal said, “Screw this! We’re though.”
My mouth was hanging open, and I thought, Wait! What just happened? But it just backed up Cal’s honest character.

I was so excited for Part III, being the 1st time in Cal’s head. He drops a ton of F bombs, but hey, that’ Cal. His POV was entertaining and fun to read. There was one part in his view where for the 1st time, I found myself angry with Cal. He’s not one to be hypocritical, so it really bothered me. When Ari and Cal finally found each other again, claiming their undying love for each other, I couldn’t have been more thrilled. Time apart is what showed this 2 they could not live without each other. They agreed to leave the past in the past…no more secrets. Ariana needed to share some things that she had been keeping from Cal which was honorable of her to do. So, I was dumbfounded when Ari made her confession about kissing Zane 3 times and Cal stated that he wasn’t sure if he could even forgive her. Cal being livid…yes. But after weeks had passed and Cal still wasn’t sure if he could forgive Ari threw me for a loop. Upon not having seen her for 2 months, he had just told her, nothing she said would change his feelings or him wanting to be with her. Ari admits she kissed Zane, and wham…it may be over. I mean for Pete’s sake, Cal, yes they kissed. But Zane didn’t penetrate. That’s a huge difference in my books.

For once, I totally agreed with what Zane told Cal. It’s not that I ever disliked Zane, he was just in the way of Cal. But Zane’s speech to Cal, earned major points with me. Zane took the higher road, truly being an honorable man. I chunk Cal’s lapse in character of being a hypocrite, to his hormone injections.
Zane’s speech lighted a fire under Cal’s ass that was overdue. After that episode, Cal was back in my good grace.

The Story:

This 3rd final installment of the True Calling series didn’t disappoint. Now looking back, I can appreciate everything that happened, since I know the outcome. My emotions were all over the place when I read this book. I wasn’t sure how I would feel when it was over.
Loved how in this novel the love issues were not resolved until the end. Even though it damn near killed me. That concept was different. Although it was a roller coaster, it was done well, and worth the ride.

Ari’s gift was a neat aspect of the story. I liked how even though this series is Sci-fi, the story had a very realistic feel. As for I believe in premonition, 6th senses, and 3rd eyes. I don’t believe in telekinesis though. I have to draw the line somewhere. Lol.
This plotline had a lot of action, romance, and suspense. All being what makes my favorite in a genre. I liked how we got to see Ari’s gifts in action. In the end finale; Ari’s power of dismantling the bomb seemed a little farfetched. Other than that, it was a great addition to the story.
The twist with Ari’s pregnancy was a shocker. That’s some sick s***. But being an ultrasound tech for 15 ½ years, makes me question their advanced technology. That doctor should have been fired if he didn’t see the 2nd baby during her 1st ultrasound. The concept was wicked though, so I went with it with a smile.

Again, Ms. Siobhan is the queen of not only cliff hangers but suspense. I was not expecting what happened on the very last paragraph of the very last page. Literally…my mouth was hanging open. And it almost broke my heart. Praise Sonar, it turned out okay. I don’t think I could have accepted it. I would have been devastated.

The epilogue in this book was one of the most beautiful epilogues I have ever read. I felt all the issues that needed to be resolved were. I didn’t have any lingering questions that weren’t answered. The irony of the epilogue was epic, a delightful surprise. One I didn’t see coming. The irony to this story was satisfying, making perfect sense.
My favorite traits of a story are the connection of plots and entities within. The best stories are ones with a metaphoric or underlining purpose. The connection of events and plotlines binding together, making the concept of the novel hole. Ari with Cal. Zane with Melanie, Cal’s sister. You can’t get more ironic then that.

Destiny Rising has a beautiful ending to a wonderful Sci-fi series. I recommend this series to anyone who loves Sci-fi with a twist. Conflicted romance and action.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Trilogy 20 April 2016
By Nelia Madeira - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Lots of decisions are to be made in this book; for the humanity and Ariana too has to make so decisions too.

Saoirse organization is preparing nonstop to battle the government and take over Earth and Novo too. Ariana, her father and those who she loves most are joined on this battle for their freedom and justice. But that is not the only thing happening on Ariana's life, old memories are resurfacing, old discoveries and new realities and making her whole world fall apart forever and she needs to decide what is best for her and her family. Her father makes a decision and sends her away to Greece for a while on the pretest that she has to concentrate on her psychic gift to evolve and fully extent it to help the battle that they are all in. While she is away she manages to connect with her psychic gift with the help of someone who has the same powerful gift and it evolves to the max, but she also makes some major personal decisions that will either destroy her childhood boyfriend Zane or her fiancée Cal's heart, but it's a decision that she is ready to make.

When she comes back and battle is fully on, fate takes another turn and Ariana is face with another major decision, one that will have to involve making a deal with the enemy. She then faces the worst choice of making the ultimate personal sacrifice or risk everything she holds dear. What will she do? Well, you just have to read to find out. Will Saoirse and Ariana will this battle against the government? What will the future look like? Who did Ariana choose; Zane or Cal?

These are questions that you will have answers too, some you will like others you will not, but you will get them. I wasn't happy with one of the choices Ariana made, but overall the book was really good. I really liked how everything wrapped up nicely and how you get to see much more into the future that you get from other books.

I gave the book 4 out of 5 stars, I probably would have give 5 if she had made another choice but that's just my personal option, and that's what reviews are for, right? And everyone has different options and I'm sure some people probably liked her decision. Do I recommend this trilogy, absolutely!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I fell in love with the entire cast of characters and was way ... 6 January 2016
By Jennifer G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I must admit that I became completely addicted to this series of books. I immersed myself in their world not stopping after the first page of True Calling until I finished Destiny Rising. I fell in love with the entire cast of characters and was way too invested in their lives for this brief period. Each was crafted as a full character, nothing one-dimensional. We got to really know them, strengths and flaws. Having admitted all of this, I was almost scared to read this book. I had certain outcomes in mind for each of the characters and would not have been pleased otherwise. I am thrilled. Without any spoilers I was happy with the outcome of each and every character. The author even exceeded my wishes. She created the perfect blend of action and romance with continuous intrigue and suspense. I was 100% satisfied with the True Calling series. I am sorry it's over so quickly, but that's my own fault for not being able to put the books down. Maybe someday, the characters will be revisited. I have this author flagged so that I am sure to see any books she releases. I plan to read anything and everything she publishes hoping that she can capture my imagination once again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Feelings of love seemed like I was being hounded by a salesman 28 November 2016
By Debbie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really liked the story line of this series but there was more than enough proclamations of love in the 1st 4 books, But this last book Destiny rising seemed like the 3 main characters, Ari, Zane, and Cal spoke of how much this one loved that one and that one loved the other so much, I felt the writer was trying to sell me a new car.on and on and on and on about proclamations of love and it seemed like the writer was just filling pages with it for this final book. Oh, and seriously " baby momma? Please.... teens who read these books aren't concerned with the usage of words like that. Other than that like I said it had a good story line. Oh, I forgot the Novella was not worth 2.99. In my opinion is too much to pay for any 100 page novella. I hate giving a 2 star rating on any book but more of a detailed happy ending would've been a worthy alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars destiny rising 1 October 2015
By maria arcara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the entire true calling series - I read them straight through, including lovestruck & endings and beginnings. I thought the character development was quite thorough, personalities & interactions seemed natural & realistic.... in fact, I liked each of the main characters & could really feel for each of them. I also think the author did a great job of keeping track of the details so the stories made sense & the progression of events had no outstanding contradictions.
I have never written a book review before & don't want to be a spoiler, so i'll just say that if you enjoyed any of the earlier books/stoties in this series, you need to read this one to tie up the loose ends & see how it all plays out.
