“We all hold a beast inside. The only difference is what form it takes when freed.”

Summary: Rain Ryland has never belonged anywhere, He’s use to people judging him for his rough background, his intimidating size, and now, his orphan status. He’s always been on the outside, looking in, and he’s fine with that. Until he moves to New Wurzburg and meets Friederike Burkhart.

Freddie isn’t like normal teen girls, though. And someone wants her dead for it. Freddie warns he’d better stay far away if he wants to stay alive, but Rain’s never been good at running rom trouble. For the first time, Rain has something worth fighting for, worth living for. Worth dying for.

Ancient magic and modern society collide in a sexy, spellbinding romance perfect for fans of C. C. Hunter and Maggie Stiefvater that proves sometimes beauty is the beast…

My Thoughts

HAVEN is a brilliant YA paranormal romance that sweeps readers up and brings them along on an epic supernatural journey with strong but deeply flawed characters who must fight against their fears to get to the bottom of a mystery that both compels and haunts. An amazing story that takes the classic werewolf myth and expands it into something fresh and new and fascinating, HAVEN is the epitome of a must read story for mature teens.

Fantastic characterization, marvelous writing and storytelling, and a keen eye toward distinctive details all combine to make HAVEN a standout YA book and its author, Mary Lindsey, one of my favorite young adult authors writing today. Every scene, every character, every decision has a purpose in this book, and each moment builds on the last to create a unique read that I found I impossible to put down.

Rain and Freddie are two incredible characters who command your attention from the first time you meet them. You feel for them and their plight and you root for them to find the answers they need to solve the problems they’ve come to face. You want them to learn how to trust and to find the confidence they need, the strength they need, to do what they must to survive.

I loved this story, and I loved these characters, and because I loved them, I cannot recommend reading this book highly enough. If you love paranormal romance with magic, shifters, mystery, intrigue, and suspense, pick up a copy of HAVEN. You won’t be disappointed. If anything, you’ll be hooked to read more of it…just like me.

Mary Lindsey is a multi award-winning, RITA® nominated author of romance for adults and teens. She lives on an island in the middle of a river. Seriously, she does. When not writing, she wrangles her rowdy pack of three teens, two Cairn Terriers, and one husband. Inexplicably, her favorite animal is the giant anteater and at one point, she had over 200 “pet” Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. The roaches are a long story involving three science-crazed kids and a soft spot for rescue animals. The good news is, the “pet” roaches found a home… somewhere else.
