The Sending – Blog Tour and Review

Hey everyone, Angie here. I just read a great book called The Sending. Its a dystopian with a bit of romance. I am posting a bit late today, because of the new baby! He was born a little over a week ago and time gets away from you when you have a newborn. I hope no-one was inconvenienced by the delay. Anyway, read on for a review and giveaway.

The SendingThe 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.

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

Growing up in southern Louisiana, Jandy Salguero’s life was full of friendly smiles, good food and tall tales. She holds a BA in French from Brigham Young University, where she met her husband in the midst of the great Rocky Mountains. She now resides in a small town outside of Raleigh, NC. Her days are full of grade-school antics and underfoot toddler toys– courtesy of her two handsome boys. She is currently working on Book 2 in the Senitha’s Light series, due out in early 2015.  


Though it took me a while to get into the writing style, I really ended up liking The Sending. I’ll tell you why. I have been reading a lot of Orson Scott Card books recently and he very much does not give scenery details, which I like. He gives a lot of details about feelings and philosophy rather than about the scenery. When I started this book I was reminded what it is like to read about scenery. My mind does not enjoy trying to paint that picture. I know some people love it. Anyway, after I grew accustomed to the change, I really started to enjoy the pace and style of the book. The book started off great with a fast-paced action scene. I only feel like there were a lot of characters introduced very quickly and I got lost. It wasn’t a huge deal and what mattered most was that I got drawn into the story quickly. I love that the book is written in 3rd person, it makes it much easier to understand the different characters. I also love the pace at which the full extent of the world we are in is revealed. The author gives you just enough to keep you interested and intrigued as you read. I also loved the science fiction aspects of the futuristic world. 
Overall, I just thought the book was written very well. It was very entertaining and the characters were interesting as well as the relationships. I thought Daneel and Mara’s characters were so different—It was interesting to see their connection and relationship. There isn’t much more I have to say, except, you should read this book. It was awesome.
