Product Description

Product Description

"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Surprising, New Dystopian! 6 October 2014
By Jessica@ThePsychoticNerd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
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. Zane's perspective gave an insight as to what the government was doing, and what was going on in general. There are so many things that we found out thanks to his perspective! There was speak of rebellion in Ari's perspective, but it wasn't until Zane's perspective that we get to see that this book is about so much more than The Calling.

Now, onto the sad part: What did I not like? I love this book and I had hardly any problems with it, but, I hate saying this, I did have a few. One problem is that I was confused by how Ari and her family seem to have some memories of Earth, when those memories were supposedly erased. For example: Ari mentions forests where she grew up. There is also mention of an uncle that committed suicide on Earth, but how do they know these things? My other issue is the psychic abilities. I felt like it wasn't explained enough as to why people have them. And that's it. Those are my only problems, and they're really minor and pretty easy to ignore.

IN CONCLUSION
This is a really great dystopian that took me by surprise! Sure, it has similar ideas to other books, at points, but this book has so many new, unique ideas as well! This book is exciting, with a great collection of characters, and I had a very hard time putting it down! I definitely recommend it to sci-fi and dystopian fans!
Am I going to continue the series! Yes! Especially after the way this book ended!

5.0 out of 5 stars and I know I will be reading more books like this in the future 2 February 2015
By A. Hodges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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. Even Isla who is chasing him, he doesn't let up on letting her know how he feels about Ariana. He is super smart and is very vital to the rebel cause. Then there is Cal, who has a hot temper, but there is no denying that he cares about Ariana. He seems so sweet even though his life isn't the greatest at home, he turns out to be a great guy even if his dad is awful.

The author is wonderful in describing everything enough that you are able to picture all of it even though it is set in space or in a more technological world that earth has become. There are all sorts of high tech gadgets for us to learn about.

This book is one that I would recommend to anyone that asks for me a new book to read. It is mixed with a bit of dysopia, to swoon worthy romances, and family ties. It also gives you the strength to want to do things you are know difficult for the benefit of the world around us. Things aren't always easy, but it is up to us how we want to handle them and keep going with our lives. Now I get to wait as patiently as I can until the next one comes out!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating! 15 September 2015
By Alicia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed how the author built up the mystery about this ... 18 April 2016
By Terri J - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was given to me for free by the author, but I gladly purchased the remaining books in the series!
I thoroughly enjoyed how the author built up the mystery about this new 'Planet Novo, leaving me to wonder just what exactly was going on there? Siobhan Davis then lures her readers into watching the blossoming romance form between Ariana and Cal, along with the ups and downs of their relationship/friendship.but then Zane enters the picture....
I'd recommend the True Calling books to anyone!

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, she 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.

TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS. ONE SHARED DREAM.

I really enjoyed this book so much, it was a lot of fun and interesting book. I got hooked on the very first page. It was also a fast paced book. I thought that Ari was great. I loved that she wouldn't take crap from people, and she was so fun to read about.She is a very strong young woman who has to be both sister and mom to her younger siblings when tragedy strikes. And Zane was my absolute favorite guy and who I am rooting for to wind up with Ari. Cal, I'm having a hard time figuring out if he can be trusted or not. Do I think he is a good guy? Maybe. Do I want him to be the one for Ari. No. I think the right person is out there for him. I can't wait to read more of this serious and more from Siobhan! This book is out of this world!
