The Lost Savior by Siobhan Davis

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

They came from another world to protect her. Now it’s her destiny to save them … 

Tori King is a normal senior in high school. Head over heels in love with her childhood sweetheart, she is busy making plans for college when a chance encounter with an alien bounty hunter turns her world upside down. Now, she’s experiencing terrifying changes and developing supernatural abilities that leave her questioning her entire existence.

Then the arrival of four hot new guys at school has everyone talking—especially when they become fixated on Tori, following her wherever she goes. She can’t shake them off, and as they grow closer, she finds herself drawn to all four of them in ways she cannot explain.

When they finally reveal their true identity, and why they’re here for her, she discovers everything she thought she knew about herself is a lie.

Because there is nothing normal about Tori King.

And she’s about to discover exactly how underrated normal is.

The heroine: Tori – She is a normal high school student, who grew up on a farm, She has a boyfriend (Jensen) and several best friends. When she and her friends go shopping for prom dresses, something strange happens to her when she is attacked by a weird guy who she bumped into. When four new guys arrive at her school, she has a very strange reaction to them.

The Heroes: Dane, Maddox, Beckett and Cooper – Dane has tattoos and a dark faux hawk and chocolate brown eyes, Maddox has bulging muscles and tattoos, Beckett is smart and cute with glasses and a fade haircut, leaner but with muscular definition, Cooper is a blonde with tattoos and blue eyes and looks similar to Justin Bieber. They are guardians assigned to Tori.

The Story: Tori gets to know the four new guys at school and finds she has a connection to each of them, she has a feeling sort of like that of the alien that attacked her, but she feels comfortable with them. As this is going on, she is getting used to the weird things that seem to keep happening to her, similar to psychic abilities, and paranormal skills like turning that alien that attacked her to dust and moving super fast.

The book is told mainly from Tori’s point of view, though there are chapters in each of the guys point of view as well. It was narrated in dual narration by Lexi Richmond, Cooper North, Raviv Ullman, James Cavenaugh and Kirby Heyborne. They all do a fine job. Lexi Richmond isn’t one of my favorite narrators but she does a good job and her voice isn’t unpleasant so that was good.

There was a bunch of boyfriend drama at the beginning of this book since Tori had a boyfriend and there were jealousies when the four new guys came to school and started paying attention to Tori. Her boyfriend Jensen, was a good guy that she had known since she was a kid.

Some things don’t make much sense in this book. Tori and her four protectors were sent to different places as babies after an enemy species had started taking control of their planet, and Tori is just now getting her powers and remembering some of the things that happened when she was baby. However, the guys know all kinds of things about themselves, their home planet and the prophecy. They have information hidden away in their minds, but the technology of how it got there and how they access it wasn’t explained very well.

I have to admit that I really wasn’t feeling this one all the way through. I don’t know if I wasn’t connecting with the characters enough, or if I just got bored with listening to books yesterday. I put this one down a few times to watch television, which I don’t often do.
