Havenfall (Havenfall #1)
by Sara Holland
A safe haven between four realms. The girl sworn to protect it–at any cost.Hidden deep in the mountains of Colorado lies the Inn at Havenfall, a sanctuary that connects ancient worlds–each with their own magic–together. For generations, the inn has protected all who seek refuge within its walls, and any who disrupt the peace can never return.For Maddie Morrow, summers at the inn are more than a chance to experience this magic first-hand. Havenfall is an escape from 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 uncle.But 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 herself 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 more 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 safe . .
I received an ARC copy of Havenfall for an honest review.
Instead of going through the wardrobe or down the rabbit hole to discover the world of magic and mystery. In Havenfall the magic and mystery come through the door to us. which is a really great concept and has lots of potential
Disguised as a simple mountain hotel, Havenfall is a neutral meeting point between a range of different universes, with doors to other worlds beneath it. Maddie’s uncle is the current “Innkeeper,” and she hopes to be his successor. This means that she needs to learn how to host the delegates that meet at Havenfall every summer.When the door to a previously-sealed world begins to open, a monster may have been released, which threatens the safety of everyone at Havenfall. Now Maddie suddenly faces the leadership she has a long dreamed of. Can she cope with the presser or will of being the Innkeeper be destroyed before they even have a chance to take flight?I really enjoyed Maddie’s character. She didn’t try to act older then she was. She made mistakes, she was overwhelmed and she looked to others for help. Her life growing up wasn’t your average life. Her brother was killed and her mother is in jail as a result. So as you can imagen not only is she trying to deal with what she saw but also the comments and stares from those around her. As a result, Havenfall has become almost her safety net a way to keep those connections to her childhood.
