BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - The Selection by Christine Castle & Jayne Faith

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?

4 out of 5 (very good)

One thing I must say at the start - this book has been compared to The Hunger Games. Now, I haven't actually read the book but I did see the film which I didn't really enjoy. So I was a bit dubious about reading this book once I saw the comparisons being made. However, I am so glad that I did!

This is a fast-paced, full of action and emotion sci-fi adventure, that is layered with intrigue and power games. The world building is significant and you receive a lot of information in an easy-to-absorb way. All the characters, in particular Maya and Toric, grow and develop throughout the book. 

This story swept me along and I was not ready for it to end. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

* I received this book from Xpresso Book Tours in return for a fair and honest review. *
