|Many thanks to Alloy Entertainment, via NetGalley, for letting me read this book in exchange for an honest review!
I found nothing in Haven that I would consider a trope.
I also found myself enjoying Haven far, far more than I thought I would.
Yes, our protagonist, Katelyn, can be a bit of a brat. Yes, there is instalove (although I didn’t really find myself getting annoyed by that, since there was a lot of other stuff going on throughout the book as well).
But the world was amazing. Many of the scenes – if not all – that took place outside of Rivermarch (and even some that took place there) were ones that I could easily envision, almost like I were watching them unfold on a TV screen. The characters, the places – everything, pretty much – came alive for me.
I don’t really have any complaints about this book, at least not that I can think of right now. If any do pop into my brain, I’ll definitely edit this and add them. But for me at least, this was one of the rare 5/5 stars as well as a book that I think I’d be happy rereading (which is generally what I mean by giving 5/5 stars to a book).
Definitely do recommend to any fantasy lovers, YA lovers, etc. 🙂
