review Havenfall

Reality where her mother sits on death row accused of murdering Maddie's brother It's where Maddie fell in love with handsome Fiorden soldier Brekken And it's where one day she hopes to inherit the role of Innkeeper from her beloved uncleBut this summer the impossible happens a dead body is found shattering everything the inn stands for With Brekken missing her uncle gravely injured and a dangerous creature on the loose Maddie suddenly finds he Blog Instagram Twitter BN Thank you NetGalley and Bloomsbury YA for this ARC All thoughts and opinions are mine Havenfall combines two of my guiltiest reading pleasures fantasy and mystery to deliver the story about a girl tasked with the job of overlooking a safe house between magical worlds during a time of strife In theory the story could be exciting humans and two of the fantastical worlds that have an alliance come together once a year to celebrate and discuss matters of their worlds so that they may continue to live in accord The innkeeper our lead s uncle is usually the one who oversees everything But after the door to one of the other worlds opens again which has been sealed for years due to a war that broke out where lives were lost death comes knocking again and the innkeeper is left unconscious and unable to continue overseeing his duties Enter Maddie who has dreamed her whole life of having this role feels that this is what she has been working for and while nervous believes herself to be ready to face whatever Haven needs in order to keep others safeIt s an entertaining read and I greatly enjoyed the mystery reveals that occurred But the story fell flat for me While it aspires to be rousing it doesn t reach that potential The whole thing delivered just a little monotonously and I felt that most of the characters were sorely underdeveloped save for Maddie and maybe Taya to some extent One of the elements that I always delight in especially in fantasy novels is the antagonist There is so much room in this genre to make the bad guy anything you want himher to be The Silver Prince fell so short Not only do we only see him a handful of times but we never get to know him What motivates him and moves him other than the need to take over the keep and reign Why does he want this We re not given enough information and while a handful of his actions are imposing enough and he manages to brainwash Maddie fairly easily the strength that he could have as a being is just not thereMaddie is very believable in the doubt that she has in herself to do her job as innkeeper She knows nothing of what needs doing and has no problems reaching out to others for help She does have a ridiculously easy gift of trusting the wrong people however and keeps mentioning this throughout It s almost as if she tells the audience Most people I trust lie to me here let me show you while it continues to occur again and again It s repetitive Almost everyone in this book has something to hide and a secret to reveal It happens so often that we keep doubting whoever appears next in the novel It s fantastic for what the author accomplishes as far as the story s mystery and yet it s so ironic that our lead doesn t seem to catch upWhile there is a clear love triangle playing out between Maddie Brekken and Taya I was so glad to not see the usual stereotypical tug of war that tends to happen Love triangles are one of my least favorite tropes in stories because usually they re overdone Sara Holland wrote it well showing the intense attraction that is to be expected between Maddie and Brekken with the years that they ve known each other and the bond that has been growing between them since they were children as opposed to her newly developed closeness toward Taya Havenfall itself I definitely got the sense of the town and it did as Maddie points out at one point in the story feel like an old western type of world in which to live It s still charming well run down full of vegetation and woods nearby It does a really nice job of conveying how isolated the keep is to the rest of town and how suspicious and full of gossip others are about the place The ending as I have been reading too often with books lately came far too swiftly and easily There is going to be a second book surely especially with the way that Havenfall closes But we could have taken a little longer to see the conclusion of this one develop and play out More time overall was needed with this book to expand

Havenfall

A safe haven between four realms and the girl sworn to protect it at any costHidden deep in the mountains of Colorado lies the Inn at Havenfall a sanctuary that connects ancient worlds each with its own magic For generations the inn has protected all who seek refuge within its walls and any who disrupt the peace can never returnFor Maddie Morrow summers at the inn are than a chance to experience this magic firsthand Havenfall is an escape from 35 stars I found Sara Holland s debut Everless a very good kind of surprising It was nothing I expected and yet everything I wanted both at the same time While I didn t fall in love with the heroine I thought she had it in her to BE a heroine and that is something that kept me wanting to read about her This is a completely new series set in a completely new world and a whole new set of distinct protagonists and antagonists The storyline is not recycled The writing is elegant The characters are adeuately three dimensional with a back story for each I found the idea of a haven between various worlds intriguing But the pacing is so slow We know the author has something planned for the world building in the future After all why would she introduce us to the worlds if not to get us excited about them Unfortunately we do not get to explore them like we get to explore Havenfall through the eyes of Maddie the innkeeper s niece Because of that I feel like this first book is like a preuel than an actual first tome Thankfully there is a semblance of a storyline with action seuences even if this book contains too much talking and too many descriptions for its own good Moreover there are lots of twists and turns thrown in and you will not see them coming I sure like that Sara Holland did not wait until the final ten pages to shock us with them Instead they are spread around pretty evenly so it makes for a compelling story even if the pacing really is slow Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

Rself responsible for the safety of everyone in Havenfall She'll do anything to uncover the truth even if it means working together with an alluring new staffer Taya who seems to know than she's letting on As dark secrets are revealed about the inn itself one thing becomes clear to Maddie no one can be trusted and no one is safeBestselling author Sara Holland pulls readers into an enchanting world where both power and peril lurk behind every do 15This book had a really interesting set up and the first 50 pages I was kind of intriguedbut I found the rest just didn t deliver There wasn t much world building and it was difficult to empathise with the characters There was a romance which I don t think added anything to the plot As well as a MC who was frustrating and naive made stupid choices consistentlyOverall I just didn t enjoy this one with most things making me eye roll

    im not a fan of novellas so no one is surprised than me when i say this would be better as a novella and serve as a5 preuel to a main series and heres why i think that while the plot and world building is definitely uniue i dont feel the high stakes intensity that should accompany some of the ‘life altering’ situation

    35 stars I found Sara Holland’s debut—Everless—a very good kind of surprising It was nothing I expected and yet everything I wanted both at the same time While I didn’t fall in love with the heroine I thought she had it in her to BE a heroine and that is something that kept me wanting to read about her This is a completely new series set in a completely new world and a whole new set of distinct protagonists and antagoni

    I said once long ago whilst reading the sampler that if the hot motorbike girl Taya wasn't the love interest I would be politely demanding answers because there were strong sapphic vibes So it is with great delight I can confirm that yes she is totally a love interest along with some handsome guy; okay there might be a
