Peek Inside Haven

Rain Rylan has never belonged anywhere. That is 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 from trouble. For the first time, Rain has something worth fighting for, worth living for. Worth dying for.

Rain Ryland has never belonged anywhere. He’s used 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 from trouble. For the first time, Rain has something worth fighting for, worth living for. Worth dying for.

Haven is an amazing story that sort of reminded me of Twilight at the beginning. Rain is sent to live with his estranged aunt when his mother passes away. He's sent to this small rural town where he realizes that something isn't quite right. At his new school he notices that there is this one group ...more

Juicy enough to sink my teeth into it!

Haven is a mystery suspense novel which ideally you don't want to find out too much about it before you read it. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

I’m a sucker for a wounded bird type character and I completely fell in love with Rain! Lindsey creates an addictively dark world full of secrets and dangers, which caused me to hold my breath at the turn of each page, worrying what would come next. The characters were so well developed that I felt ...more

This is probably one of the best YA Paranormals I've read this year. It's told from the rare male's POV, Rain's, which really adds a whole different layer to this story. I'm usually pretty good at figuring out what's going on but this one kept me guessing right up till the ending. Make sure you have ...more

Haven is the story about teenage shapeshifters in Texas USA. Automatically the comparison will be to books such as Twilight.

I received an ARC of Hide from Me at BookCon. It's long at 400 pages, but reads fast. It's from a male point of view (Aaron/Rain) which really worked for me since the heroine (Freddie) and her cousins have so many secrets that I don't want to give away in a summary. There were lots of strong seconda ...more
