"Fans of The Selection/Hunger Games/Matched will really enjoy this book … it's amazing!"

Over 1,100 Five and Four-Star Ratings for the series on Goodreads.

Welcome to Novo: Your new home in Space

For Ariana Skyee, Planet Novo was everything it promised to be until the authorities introduced "The Calling" as their response to repopulation. Now, all seventeen-year-olds are to participate in this Bachelor-style pageant to find their perfect match, marry, and have children.

But that's not Ariana's only concern. Thanks to the government-sanctioned memory erase, Ariana has no recollection of Zane, the mystery boy who haunts her dreams. Things are further complicated when the pageant commences and her feelings for fellow Cadet Cal Remus intensify. Together, they start to realize not everything about their new home is as it seems.

Entangled in a dangerous web of deceit, Ariana sets out to identify the truth. Conflicted over warnings that Cal isn’t trustworthy and alarmed at the government's increasing interest in her, she doesn’t know where to turn. But her search for the truth comes at a high personal price. When her world implodes, discovering the past shapes her future with devastating consequences.

Note from the Author:
This series is written in US English.
There is a strong romance theme in True Calling, and if you only enjoy hard science fiction then this is not the book for you. This book contains a cliff hanger and it is not a stand-alone read. Thank you for taking the time to check out my work.

In a word, WOW!! Talk about a fascinating and magnetic tale! True Calling by Siobhan Davis is more than sci-fi, more than post-apocalyptic, more than YA romance! If this is what Siobhan Davis is bringing to the reading table as her debut, she is definitely an author to follow.

Picture Earth being all used up, tired and worn from abuse, now picture specially chosen people to go to a nearby planet designed to support human life and hopefully to make it thrive in all ways. The planet Novo may be the last chance Earth has to survive, technologically advanced, a healthy society, each person chosen for their potential contribution, sound good? What if this place was so “perfect” that it was actually a façade for total government control, implant chips, memory erasures, and constant monitoring and finally, population control?

Ariana is seventeen, oblivious to so much of the dark side of Earth and Novo, but she is a rebel at heart, and when the Calling Pageant is announced, a televised way to choose the perfect mate for those under a certain age. The object? To populate Novo, talk about Planned Parenthood. Arian is opposed to this spectacle but becomes a global hit, along with her “boyfriend” Cal. Are they truly a perfect match?

Nightmares of a boy she doesn’t remember keep torturing her, sometimes its scenes of him, sometimes he talks to her. Who is Zane? How does she know him? As her world becomes more of a prison state, and horrific tragedy strikes her family, she receives a message from the grave, and her world will never be the same. Gone is the trust she had in others, surviving each day, trying to stay with Cal and learning the truth of her world and an underground resistance light a spark in her that burns brighter with each day.

True Calling is a must read for any reader interested in a fast paced, intriguing Young Adult Book.

As sister-in-law to the author I was lucky enough to read a copy of the book in advance, and as an avid reader of all types of books and a big fan of Young Adult fiction I loved this book and would highly recommend it. I think it is easily on a par with other books I have read in this genre.

True Calling is set in the near-future and we accompany Ariana on her journey in her new world on Novo. Ariana struggles with her new life and she is plagued by dreams of an unknown boy –Zane, and she is trying to work out what they are telling her.

The Calling pageant is the biggest event of the book which forces all 17 year olds to date from their approved top ten list and will eventually lead to marriage and motherhood for Ariana. The government is inflicting the pageant on all participants using the necessity of building the new world as an excuse for forcing people into submission.
Ariana is a strong character who finds it hard to be enthusiastic about something which will take away her right to fall in love the natural way and force her to become a mother before she feels ready. She is nervous and distrustful of the watchful eyes of her new government but in order to protect her family she must not show her concerns.
Family life on Novo is not the same for Ariana as it was on earth and she needs to step up and be the strong one to keep the family together.

Cal is one of the main characters of the book, he and Ariana fall in love but falling in love naturally is not how it happens on Novo so staying together is tough. Cal is a real charmer, a total heart-breaker but he has his work cut out convincing Ariana that he is genuine.

If you’re a fan of Divergent, The Hunger Games and generally love YA and dystopian novels, then you must read True Calling – you will absolutely love it. The author’s style of writing draws you in and leaves you constantly wanting to know more, and the writing flows so well, so you can easily spend hours reading.
The characterization is great: Ariana is strong and the best older sister ever, Cal is flirtatious – but sincere – and impossible not to like, and Zane, who Ariana is having mysterious dreams of, is so intriguing the reader is enticed into knowing more about him. I also like Fenuka, Ariana’s stylist, who’s continually enthusiastic attitude reminds me pleasantly of Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games. You can easily connect to the characters and care about them, which is always the sign of a great writer.
The entire world of the story has been cleverly crafted so you understand and can visualize Earth and planet Novo so well, and the description is fantastic. Planet Novo seems so perfect from the outside, but after a while it becomes clear to both Ariana and the reader that it has dark secrets.
The construction of the plot is brilliant – something happens, then the story moves on with no hanging around. Fast paced and with quite a few unexpected twists and turns, it wasn't that I wanted to know what would happen next, I needed to know.
True Calling is a wonderful book that anyone who appreciates YA novels should read. I am eagerly anticipating books two and three, and in the near future, I hope to see this on the big screen.
