The Sending A city's peace is shattered when two university students go missing, and only Daneel and his friends know the shocking truth of what happened. Finding themselves under attack, Daneel leads them in a race to escape the mounting violence. Mara is willing to kill for the beliefs of the faction that raised her. But as she seeks out her mark, using a rare, mystical form of travel known as the Sending, Mara discovers a powerful connection that challenges the truth of everything she’s been taught. While Daneel fights to protect those he cares for, Mara must choose whether to cling to the ideology of her home—or open her scarred heart to a searing attraction and the promise of a new life.
Loved this book! Very few books are about a strong female assassin. She struggles with fighting for the people who raised her and what is right. She struggles with feeling used and not knowing who she is. Daneel though is trying to save his friends and family while stopping a horrible violence.
This story was written so well. I loved the storyline and everything about it! Being alongside Mara as she discovers herself and what she has been used for and what she thought she new against the truth. A definite must read!
Praise for The Sending The Sending reads like a dystopian Romeo and Juliet where strong, full characters from very different places inevitably collide with passion and conflict. Salguero fills a fresh, vibrant world with a nerve-tingling fast plot. Prepare to be immersed. ~Tamara Ward, author of Hidden Betrayal The Sending is a thrilling, fast-paced, science fiction-romance that's impossible to put down. Edge-of-your-seat action scenes, and a romantic attraction so intense that it will make you want to turn down the air conditioning, The Sending is a great read that left me hungry for more. I loved this book! ~Sterling R. Walker, author of The Orphan Ship

“Mara.” His face softened. “I’m not your enemy. I thought you understood that by now. Don’t treat me like one.” “Understanding something and acting on it are two different things.” She faced him full-on now, the challenge upfront and center. “I’ve spent years believing one thing, fighting for this one thing. You can’t just undo that in a day.” She swiped at a lock of hair that had fallen into her eyes, tucked it behind her ear and held on to her control. “I get it, but you’ll figure it out...” “Yes.” She cut him off, her voice growing louder, higher. “I’m sure I will. Why? Because I have no choice. I never had a choice. The one thing I ever really had a choice about was to accept my calling, to be the most worthy of it that I could be. And for what?” She spat the words out, grew angrier with each syllable of truth that emerged. “To come here and find out that I’ve only ever been a pawn in someone else’s game? That the person I’ve become doesn’t matter in the slightest?” “But you never intended—” She pushed a hand into his chest, despite the sting of the contact. “Intended? You think intention matters now? Look at me, Daneel, really look at me.” Daneel eyed the blade, brow wrinkled. “Does this blade have intention? No, because it’s just a tool.” She threw to the ground where it buried itself to the hilt between their feet. “Without a wielder, it’s less than nothing.” As I am, she thought. She stared down at the knife. The one she’d nearly used to end his life.
