One thought on “The Selection

  1. Carrie

    In exchange for peace for Earthfell, twice every year there is a selection in which sixteen young people between the ages of 18 20 are chosen to be offered to Lord Toric, the alien Lord of Calisto They are to compete in a tournament in which the female winner will become a part of the Lord s harem and the male will become one of his servants Maya believes that she is safe from the selection as the clan she belongs to has already had a volunteer chosen that has been in training But when the girl [...]

    The Selection is an alien induced Hunger Game like plot that blew me away.Humans are lined up every year to send their selected young to another planet as a sort of tribute to serve Lord Toric But before they serve they must survive the Tournament , to find those who are worthy There is a religious element that leads the zealous traditions creating the strict adherence to laws set in motion.Political machinations, life and death circumstances and electrifying sexual tension make this a riveting [...]

  3. Tink Magoo is bad at reviews

    2.5 3 starsOk, so what can I say about this book.It wasn t bad but it wasn t great either, it was just alright.There were some good ideas going on and I will read the rest of the series at some point but it didn t enthral me enough to pick the next book up straight away.Being the first book in the series I expected it to be a bit slow, you have to allow for the author to build the world around the story and introduce everything But, it was really slow and not a lot happened for the majority of t [...]

    I love me some sci fi, futuristic romance novels that involve falling in love with other beings I can t help it, it has to be the growing up with Star Wars This book is set some years in the future when the Earth is no longer run by humans, religion no longer exists and offerings are given to an alien planet to compete in a game of survival where they are ranked with each test The read is fascinating, enthralling, heartbreaking and beautiful all at the same time which is why it gets 4 solid star [...]

    Read the entire review That Bookshelf Bitch I received a digital copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thank you, Jayne Faith and Patchwork Press At first glance, The Selection appears to be a mishmash of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The Selection by Kiera Cass and the Bachelor reality show Truthfully, it kind of is However, it just wasn t my cup of tea.Actual rating 2 stars

    I was given an ARC book for an honest review free of persuasion from the author or anyone else affiliated with this bookNTAINS SOME SPOILERSThis was a good book I enjoyed reading it My issue is that it is another version of The Hunger Games That is why I deducted a star To me this book read Hunger Games with an alien twist For this reason I was disappointed in the story I felt like I had read this story before This book left me wanting so much .Maya is the heroine of the story She is on Earthenf [...]

    Wow So, I m a HUGE fan of both the Hunger Games Selection series Throw in a small nod to Falling Skies, and I m hooked Certainly not a new premise, but the author does a nice job setting up this alternate reality, a future Earth Earthenfell that is protected by the Lord Toric and Calistans that previously inhabited Earth and are fighting for the ability to return while keeping those there on Earth essentially their descendents safe Of course, there s a catch and they require the Offered to go th [...]

    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 stro [...]

    I have previously read The Selection by Kiera Cass and absolutely loved it I found that both books are extremely similar, except Faith s is geared towards a mature audience and includes aliens In addition to Cass series, this book also tends to incorporate some elements from The Hunger Games as well Overall, I would say that Jayne Faith s novel is The Hunger Games meets The Selection Cass meets aliens sounds like a walk into a bar joke I know.It may seem like there is a lot of different element [...]

  11. Mandy Stump

    ExcitingLoved this book The whole book brought on a challenge vibe Loved Lord Torin and Maya They seem to have a deep draw to each other They belong together.

  12. Bex

    I absolutely loved these books, and they kept my attention right through to the end of the fifth book, which is rare for me Highly recommended read.

  13. Michelle

    a good read a few things were not perfect as in the world building was mentioned but forgotten really fast , the reason for the war that they keep mentioning and as usual the love interest in the book are so into each other it boogles the mind as a few things just did not add up but I got the gist of where they were trying to go them not getting there in the first book as this is a series and I hope they do a better job of balancing the two main characters along with the other villainous charact [...]

  14. Andrea Garcia

    This selection is a life changerI didn t know what to expect when I first started to read this book I figured it would be similar to the YA series The Selection with a dash of Hunger Games with a sci fi setting but it s it own league Maya starts out with dreams of starting a life once the selection that happens twice a year is over She has nothing to fear as she won t be picked because another girl has been offered instead When the pre selected girl has been found dead and Maya is chosen as one [...]

    The Selection by Jayne Faith is the introductory book to her series titled Sapient Salvation This story begins on a futuristic earth where our planet has been discovered and subsequently targeted by multiple alien species vying to conquer and invade Somewhere along the line a group of advanced humans,the Calistans, who lived on earth centuries before and left to explore and inhabit other planets where they became far evolved than the humans known today, showed up like knights in shining armor a [...]

    I really liked this Despite the obvious Hunger Games parallels, it really does feel like a different book, equally entertaining Yes, it has the potential to be very well received.For some reason I feel like I would better be able to review this book in list form The world building was sublime We weren t given too much time on Earthenfell but I found it very easy to visualize both it and Calisto I really want to visit Calisto It seems fascinating, and I m intrigued by the idea of a race of people [...]

  18. Jessie Mckissick

    This book is subtle and HOT at the same time.I am hooked in this series Lord Toric is such a mystery even at the end of the book The passion between Toric and Maya vibrates and pulses off the pages Looking forward to book two.

  19. ChristinaTorretta

    I am so upset right now Why did this have to end This is like a mix of The Hunger Games meets Midnight City Both of which I absolutely loved This starts out and we meet Maya A sweet girl who cares greatly about her family She is having a really bad day and finds out that her boyfriend is cheating AND she is going to be part of the Obligates since the original Obligate died The original girl had two years of training behind her and Maya is now going to have to go in blindAT is just the very begin [...]

    For starters, I love Maya s character She is determined, caring, and just a young woman that takes care of her own From the beginning, though, love just doesn t go her way With Court the womanizer, Rand the sweetheart, Orion the protector, and Toric the powerful overlord, what s a girl to do There are some plot holes that I m still questioning like the electric connection between her and Toric I mean how exactly can he read emotional signatures again Huh Anyway, this story has a mix of The Selec [...]

  23. PaulaPhillips

    Fans of books like The Hunger Games and Kiera Cass s The Selection will absolutely fall in love with The Selection by Jayne Faith and Christine Castle as I adored it At first , I was a bit on the cautious side as I am not normally one for spacey science fiction stories and in places that is what this book presents itself as but as you get further along you discover that it was very similar to the Hunger Games each district has been training up tributes who will get sent to Lord Toric and they wi [...]

    To me this read was a mash up of hunger games because of the tournament aspect to it Kind of the bachelor feel to it because they have to please Lord topic to become part of his harem Maya is a twin who works twice as hard to make up for her sister Lana the obligated that was chosen has suddenly died So, for the women between 18 20 were up for the lottery to take her place Unfortunately Maya s name drawn Just when she finds a guy worth her time she wouldn t get the chance to explore with Rand Lo [...]

    Why the Hunger Games gif, you ask Because that s what this book reminds me of Well, a tiny part of it BUT I definitely love this book Imagine if a group of god like people helped save your Earth, and in exchange, humans have to send up a couple of people every few years to battle it out You could either die or live And when you live, you get to become the prince s concubine if you re a female or his slave if you re a male I guess, the only good thing about this whole competition is that male and [...]

  26. Mignon Mykel

    Not much of a fan for aliens, I was drawn to this title because of everything else it brought forth The idea of Maya, who just wanted to marry Court, being in her last selection before being able to go about her dreams but then her dreams being blown up in smoke Absolutely drew me in.I was a big HUNGER GAMES fan I did, however, wait until the cast of the movie was announced before even wanting to read the books At that time, I was not a big young adult dystopian fan I was not a big fan of books [...]

    This is my first time reading a SciFi book and I have to say I really enjoyed it Sapient Salvation is based off in the future after aliens have found Earth and have been trying to take it over Luckily the Calistian s, who were on Earth before humans but chose to leave, saved the humans but now every 6 months want 16 humans to come to Calisto to compete to either be put in Lord Toric s harem of woman or a life of servitude for the men Maya is the main heroine and after the woman who is suppose to [...]

  28. Jessica Davis

    I liked it I m not really sure how to categorize this book I got it for free on and initially I thought it was a young adult novel, then a futuristic romance I guess I d go with the latter The protagonist is only 20, but the language between the characters and the romance seem geared towards an older audience Other reviewers have compared this to the Hunger Games, and I guess I d have to agree There is an element of the Hunger Games, with Earthen Obligates being sent away to compete for service [...]

  29. Parichita Singh

    I got ARC of this book for review from NetGAlley The first chapter of the book reminded me of Hunger Games But then as I read it turned into something else Hunger games aspect is retained, of course, as it is mentioned in synopsis itself, but the story seem to have something to it different settings, motives I was engrossed in the book till the end The problem I have with the book is that it is not a story a complete story or a complete subplot The author introduced the characters who did not [...]

  30. Marisa

    This book is clearly inspired by The Hunger Games , but it is also so much I am usually not a fan of books so close to the original, but this is a case where the authors were able to provide the book with character and personality of its own Yes, there were many similarities in the general plotline and with the Kiera Cass The Selection , however the culture and tendencies of each of the characters is totally different I know that I will lose half the people reading this with that initial discla [...]
