Disclosure: I received a free e-book copy of Haven: A Stranger Magic in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own.
I have been on a big reading kick lately (can you tell) so when Haven: A Stranger Magic appeared, I figured it would be right up my alley. I like books like this – fantasy and paranormal.
Sam Dalcome thinks he is so completely average that no one ever notices him. Until he discovers a mysterious stranger outside his home. Bewildered, he tries to uncover the stranger’s intentions. But Sam is sidetracked when he and his friend Travis discover a secret passageway deep in the town’s quarry that leads to a hidden cavern. What they uncover next will not only change their lives forever, but will uncover the first clue to a deadly Dalcome family secret. Sam finds himself drawn into a world of mystery and magic he never knew existed, which brings him closer to a destiny he never knew was possible.
HAVEN SERIES: Known as a place of refuge, Haven is a sanctuary for those with supernatural abilities. Decades of peace between the Witches, Vampires, Goblins, Elves, and Orcs is coming to an end. Now the once tranquil world is shrouded in deception and corruption. Dark secrets tear at the very fabric of their alliance giving way to an evil that stirs in the shadows. Exhilarating and utterly gripping, the HAVEN series is an action-packed journey full of suspense, magic, mystery, and intrigue.
HAVEN: A Stranger Magic is the first Novella in the HAVEN series by author D.C. Akers. This Novella contains 28,817 words, and about 172 pages in print form.
I have to be honest, it is difficult to give this book a fair review.
Haven: A Stranger Magic is book one, and is an introductory read about the characters, background, and a glimpse (ever so slight glimpse) into what is coming.
You can’t not read this book. I am willing to bet that you cannot read the subsequent books if you do not first read this one to gather all the information.
Book 1 definitely leaves you hanging though.
Pertinent information comes closer to the end so it is definitely a read that has you wondering for some time and then you’re giving a glimpse and then it ends – leaving you clawing for book 2 (which is where I am right now!)
I have liked what I read so far and I am very much looking forward to book 2 so I can continue reading what happens. It was a definite page turner and was not a long read which made it a quick, easy read!
