Book & Author details:
The Selection by Christine Castle & Jayne Faith
(Sapient Salvation Series, #1)
Publication date: October 2015
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal Romance
Twice a year, the alien Lord Toric demands a selection of human women between the ages of 18 and 20 to compete in the Tournament of the Offered for a place in his harem. Maya must get through just one more selection and then she can marry the man of her dreams. She should have been safe, but when a young woman who was supposed to compete dies the day of the selection, Maya is forced into the Tournament.
Now she must compete against women who have been training for the Tournament for years to hone their skills of poise, charm, cunning, and seduction. And there is only one winner in the Tournament. The losers will be sacrificed.
Thrown into the fight of her life with no preparation, Maya must shed her innocence and win Lord Toric’s favor. Will she survive the first round, or will she pay the ultimate price for her inexperience?
Hunger Games meets scifi. In this thrilling scifi adventure every two years a group of selected humans are forced to compete in a series of competitions where everything you say or do is being judged and you’re constantly watched to gain the alien lord’s favor and survive.
The plot played out nicely but left you in anticipation of the next book. The characters were enjoyable to read and their layers of depth made interesting and real. Maya’s character definitely reminded me of Katiness with her strong determination and courage.
I look forward to the adventure continuing in the next book.
I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
Hi there! I’m author Jayne Faith. When I’m not tapping away at my keyboard while swilling coffee and tea, I’m playing with my dog; eating crunchy snacks, flipping through recipes online, fantasizing about food, dreaming up my next meal (you get the idea – I’m a foodie!); doing yoga or Pilates; or watching TV (my co-author Christine Castle and I are both obsessive fans of the small screen!).
