Today, I am part of the blog tour for the newest Mary Lindsey book, Haven. Thanks Chapter by Chapter Blog Tours! I have enjoyed Mary’s writing in the past and was very excited to read Haven early. If you know me at all, you know how much I love anything werewolf, so this book was a special treat. Keep reading till the end for a giveaway!
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.
I have to be honest, I’m a big fan of all things werewolf, so this book was already right up my alley. This book hit the spot, for sure. Rain was an interesting character and I like the story being told from his point of view. He’s had a tough going, but I like that he’s still a good guy at the core of it. He’s definitely the wounded hero type and I’m a sucker for those.
I liked the contrast between him and Freddie. She was a tough cookie to crack, but he got through to her. The mythology was fun and well written. I was already a fan of Mary’s writing style, so I had high hopes going into the book. She writes clearly and vividly, bringing the story to life right in front of your eyes. I look forward to whatever Mary has for us next!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Mary Lindsey is a multi award-winning, RITA® nominated author of romance for adults and teens. She lives on an island in the middle of a river. Seriously, she does. When not writing, she wrangles her rowdy pack of three teens, two Cairn Terriers, and one husband.
Inexplicably, her favorite animal is the giant anteater and at one point, she had over 200 “pet” Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches. The roaches are a long story involving three science-crazed kids and a soft spot for rescue animals. The good news is, the “pet” roaches found a home… somewhere else.
