If you liked The Hunger Games and Divergent then you will love True Calling. YA fiction has a wonderful new voice in Siobhan Davis.
True Calling is set in the future and moves between two worlds - Earth and Planet Novo. Much of Earth is uninhabitable following varying disasters and Novo is inhabited by a select number of people carefully chosen from Earth-all under the age of 45, who have been stripped of most of their memories.
We are introduced first to 17 year old Ariana who is forced to take part in The Calling - a government initiative to increase the population of Novo. The Calling is a process whereby all 17 year olds are matched with the most suitable partner and expected to marry and have children in quick succession; all done by way of a Big Brother style competition.
True love blooms for Ariana when she meets Cal but they have to battle to stay together. Although falling in love with Cal, Ariana can't stop dreaming about Zane, who appears to live on Earth, but she has no idea who he is.
True Calling is a book of young romance with a unique ‘love square’. But it’s more than just a romance book. It explores themes such as power and control and the idea of Big Brother watching and controlling in the background.
It is easy to write in a future world where anything can happen, it is much harder to make such things believable and True Calling achieves this. We don't have to be conspiracy theorists to understand that selection of people has happened in the past, or that governments around the world have often tried to dictate how people live their lives and that is what makes True Calling so believable.
A must read for all YA enthusiasts and I can't wait to read the second book.

Ariana Skyee has been dreading the day that the Calling came. Every 17 year old on Novo has to participate in the Calling, where they are each given a list of 10 people who they can date. At the end of the Calling they have to be engaged, married before they're 18 and have three children before 22. Ariana hates the idea of the Calling, but when she discover Cal Remus is on her list things start to look up.

I'm not really sure where to start with my feelings on True Calling. I enjoyed reading it and found myself wanting to know how it ended, but I also felt that some of the plot devices used were a little bit of a rehash of other dystopian fiction. It made it a little predictable for me, but I did enjoy it none the less.

I loved the romance between Cal and Ariana. It felt like they were 17 and they were just discovering how to love and about relationships. It wasn't all plain sailing for them and that made their relationship stronger. They also had parents to deal with as well as the authorities which added another level of complications for them.

Just going to get this out there though; I didn't like Zane. I didn't find his part of the narration nearly as compelling as Ariana's, but there was something else that I just didn't like about him. Maybe it is my tendency to take sides in love triangles but it was definitely something!

I loved the fact that the dystopian society was split over two planets.

This was free in the Amazon Kindle store and I thought it looked pretty cool, so I downloaded it a few months ago. Despite being just 369 pages long, it took me a shockingly long time to read...

Ariana is now a citizen of Novo, where only the fittest humans were transported after the near-destruction of planet Earth. From very early on, we are introduced to Zane through Ari's dreams - but she has no idea who he is, or why she can see him in her sleep. We don't discover Zane's identity until much further through the book.

A matchmaking system is set up for all eligible young people, taking the name of "The Calling." Ari realises her feelings for the popular Cal Remus, and is luckily given the opportunity to be matched with him. The whole deal with "The Calling" reminds me very much of books such as The Selection and Matched.

Things seem to be going pretty well (despite the fact that Ariana is appalled at the way the government is choosing who can love who) until Ariana's father disappears and leaves behind some vital information. Suddenly, Ari isn't sure whether Cal can really be trusted, and Zane is beginning to contact her directly through her mind.

A small section of this book takes place back on Earth, told from Zane's perspective. He's working for an underground resistance movement, and is still infatuated with Ariana. He gets training to try and help him communicate with her, and Ariana's father has bestowed a dying wish upon him; to keep Ari away from Cal.

Things get pretty complicated, and the love triangle is both predictable and not at the same time. Ari doesn't remember how much she loved Zane, but can sense that there was some emotion there.
