Every choice has a consequence.
Once again, the world is on the brink of momentous change. As revolutionary organization Saoirse prepares to battle the government for control of Earth and Novo, Ariana and those she loves must join humanity’s fight for justice and freedom.
As haunted memories resurface, old discoveries and new realities conspire to shatter her world forever.
Torn in one direction by her unique connection to childhood sweetheart Zane, and pulled in the other by a relentless passion for her fiery fiancé Cal, she must make the hardest decision of all. While embarking on a road to self-discovery, her psychic gift evolves and the full extent of her powerful ability is revealed.
Then fate lands another savage blow and she faces the most horrific choice of all. Forced into striking a deal with the enemy, she must make the ultimate personal sacrifice or risk everything she holds dear.
When destiny finally rears its head, what will the future hold?
Praise for Destiny Rising:
“It was beyond brilliant, totally unputdownable, wildly entertaining, edge of the seat action, full of suspense; it totally rocked. Loved the ending, loved the book.” Karla. Goodreads Reviewer.
“This is without a doubt the best book this author has written so far. I loved it from the start until the end. This series shows how a love triangle can be done right. Destiny Rising evoked so many emotions in me … and the ending, wow, so powerful. I highly recommend this series.” Lola’s Reviews.
“I cannot believe all of the whammy that this author packed into her book. It’s insane how quickly she’s put out these three books, and the quality is so incredibly good.” Danielle. Paraeducator and Goodreads Reviewer.
“The events in this book, especially the ones I thought I could handle, left my heart and mind racing. Siobhan Davis is an exceptional writer and she knows how to wrap a reader around her fingers.” Khayzelle. Written Arts Blog.
“Suspense, and the urge to turn the page were almost overwhelming, resulting in quite a few long nights. The story is complex, but solidly built. Good to the last page.” Patricia Hamill. Author Blogger. Puretextuality. @PatriciaHamill2
“I cannot put my love for Siobhan Davis’ True Calling series into words – it’s easily one of my favorite series. Destiny Rising tugs at your heart strings and messes with your feelings, but it is so wonderful. The writing is brilliant and flows wonderfully. Davis’ brings the series to a close with an epilogue that ties everything perfectly together. What a fantastic ride…”
Danielle. RamblingB00ks Blog.
“True Calling was great, and Beyond Reach was awesome, but Destiny Rising took the series to a whole new level. This series deserves to become as well-known as popular series such as The Maze Runner, The Hunger Games, Divergent, etc… It’s that good.”
Rose. Paranormal Books Blog.
The meeting wraps up then and I rise swiftly in my seat. I’m eager to catch Cal before he leaves. I don’t want things festering between us, and I need to make this right, now. Closing the distance, I reach his row just as he steps out. “Hey. Do you have time to talk?”
His face is impressively passive. “Sure,” he replies, shoving his hands deep in his pockets. Stepping aside, he gestures for me to walk in front of him.
As we travel in the elevator to the rooftop observation deck in complete silence, my sense of trepidation accelerates the higher we go.
Once I sit down in front of the glass, a serene calmness wafts over me. Reacquainting myself with my new fishy family, I find the abundance of colors sliding across the glass strangely comforting.
“I’m sorry about earlier,” I admit, twisting around to face him. “I was out of line, and I shouldn’t have said all those things.”
“Do you really mean that?” He shoots a skeptical look my way.
I force my nasty retort back down my throat and mentally start counting to ten. “Yes. The last thing I want is for events of the past to affect us. What happened with our parents isn’t really anything to do with us.” I’m hoping I’ll be able to honor that statement, because I know I’m not in possession of all the facts yet. There is still more that Dad needs to tell me. But I’m determined to deal with it separately so it doesn’t affect my relationship with Cal. I may have already lost Zane, and I don’t want to do anything to risk losing Cal too.
“It’s not that I don’t understand,” he says, moving in closer to me. “I get that you want to defend your parents, and despite the fact that my dad won’t win any Super Dad contests anytime soon, I still feel a natural urge to defend him. Maybe I’m biased, but since he told me what transpired all those years ago, I can’t stop imagining myself in his shoes. That it’s Zane who comes along and sweeps you out from right under my nose.”
Ah, now I’m finally getting it though I shouldn’t be surprised. His lack of confidence in my love isn’t anything new nor is his fear of Zane. He’s no dummy, and he knows that I’m recalling all the details of my previous relationship with him. Understanding this helps me comprehend how and why he got so angry this morning. And I also can’t forget the surge of aggression that still lingers in his tissues, the aftermath of the atrocious violation by the government when they enrolled him in their Super Soldier program without his permission. “We are not our parents. And the situation with Zane is totally different. He was already in my past when I met and fell in love with you.”
Reaching out, I take his hand, and he readily threads his fingers between mine. “I missed you today.” He lifts our conjoined hands and brushes his lips across my skin. I don’t miss the fact that he hasn’t responded to my last comment, but I’m eager to remedy things between us, so I let it go.
“You saw me this morning. It hasn’t been that long,” I remind him.
“Feels like longer. I hate any time spent apart. It reminds me of those weeks I spent alone in Novo, out of my mind with worry. Fearing that I would never see you again. I don’t like willingly being separated.” It’s on the tip of my tongue to remind him that he walked off on me, but we’ll only get into it again. So I’m going to take the moral high ground for a change. I bite my tongue.
“Well, I’m here now,” I say, rising up on my knees. “And I’m going nowhere.”
He tugs me into his chest and kisses me softly. “That’s music to my ears.”
