Book Description

Christine's life has gone horribly awry. She believes she is destined to live her life in the small Virginia town as a lonely and miserable outcast.

She will soon find that her true destiny lies in a different town . . . and in a different world. There she will learn the true meaning of misery, the true meaning of loneliness.

And in the arms of a most unlikely candidate, she will also learn the true meaning of love.

Hannen Fallier has been horribly mauled. And not only his face. He believes his heart to be mangled beyond mending. Hiding behind a mask of shame, he deems himself unworthy of love.

That he would seek acceptance from Christine is irony in its purest form. That he would seek her love . . . the ultimate betrayal.

**Mature subject matter**


Editorial Reviews

Review

One thing that initially put me off, but that I ended up truly loving, was the invented language of Atriia.  It was disconcerting at first, but as the story progressed, the language became second nature for the reader just as it did for Christine.  I personally think that this was a brilliant move on the author's part, because it really helped to not only immerse you into the world of Atriia, but also helped connect with Christine as she struggled to learn the language and adapt to the differences between Atriia and our world. ―The Romanceaholic


Fawn Bonning's, The Heart of Hannen, is a marvelous and intricate tale that is deep and rich with imagery.  Her characters are living, breathing people, heroes and villains alike, and her story is original and highly creative. ―Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite


OMFG!!! This book was very intense. Escaping Reality Within Pages

From the Author

Perhaps it's because I was a singer for so long, my writing must flow like a song. I will rewrite a sentence again and again until it has the right rhythm.

*In regards to the Atriian language. It is 95 percent English, so it is fairly simple to follow. Of the remaining 5 percent, 4 percent is self explanatory (aya=yes, naya=no, and so forth) and a dictionary can be found at the back of the book to help with the remaining 1 percent. Don't let this simple challenge keep you from experiencing The amazing Atriian Trilogy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hannen got into my heart December 9, 2011
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed this book! I won it from my first Goodreads giveaway! *-*

I must admit I first judged it by its cover. I thought it might not be so well-written, but I was very mistaken. It was fantastic. I loved the story and the characters.

I really enjoyed seeing how the main character, Christine, grew up! She suddenly finds herself alone in this strange, unknown place called Atriia, where everything is different from Earth. She deals with rude, aggresive, male-chauvinists and strange social costumes, not to mention the weird food and language, but manages to adapt quickly, and very well. I'm not sure I would've been as strong as she was.

Hannen found his way into my heart from the very start. (and when you read it, you'll see exactly what I mean with 'from the very start'). Such a complicated, strong, sweet character. Very well thought of and developed.

I was a bit confused at first with the new 'language' the author introduces to us, but eventually I got the hang of it. (It was only afterwards that I noticed there was a glossary at the end of the book. Silly, slow little me. >.<)

It was a dark, dramatic and sad book, but also very touching. Needless to say, I cried. Hard.

Of course, I wish I could have changed the ending and maybe have seen a bit more of a couple of characters, but it was still great. The book is a bit long, but it's not tiring at all! This one is a keeper. :)

I'm SO glad I had the chance to review it, otherwise I might have never heard of it. Thank you, Fawn Bonning!!!

Now, you! Go ahead and get it, you'll love it too.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent read September 20, 2011
Format:Paperback
This is an explosive "can't put it down" kind of book that keeps the reader hooked from the beginning. The story is exciting with characters that are full of action, suspense, and passion. Christine may appear brave and strong, but she is haunted by fear and doubt. The characters and story line in this book are powerful and I look forward to more from this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Must read "The Heart of Hannen" July 17, 2011
Format:Paperback
I won a copy of this book from a giveaway posted on goodreads.com
I really enjoyed this book. It's fantasy, action, suspense, romance and so much more all rolled into a really good book/story. Christine is so afraid to be happy whether she is in our world or Atriia. She is so fragile, yet so strong at the same time. The world of Atriia and all her characters is so well written that I could picture all of it clearly in my mind. This is a great story with wonderful characters. I started reading very late in the evening on 7/10/2011, and finished before noon on 7/14/2011. I spent every spare moment reading because I just had to know what happened next. In the end I was very happy at how it all turned out. Well, all but Hannen. I do believe that Hannen's story could not have been completed any other way. I would, however, like to see a continuation of Christine and Kyle's story. Just a suggestion.
Note: I have learned from the author that this book is the first of a trilogy. I am eagerly awaiting the next book!

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read... July 17, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I gotta say, this book echoed the phantom of the opera for me. It is one of the more gripping and readable novels of it's genre, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book "The Heart of Hannen" to the max June 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The Heart of Hannen is one of the better adult Fantasy/Romance I have read in recent years. Reading this book page by page has brought much thrill and passion to my somewhat casual life. Kudos to Fawn Bonning for much a dark yet exciting novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected, but still good June 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Heart of Hannen is billed as an adult Fantasy/Romance. (Adult as in 18+, not "Adult" as in XXX.) I think it falls more in the Horror category. The last thing I read that was this twisted was my last Stephen King novel. Seventeen-year-old Christine is "the town psycho" and can't find a way to fit in with her family or her classmates. When she finds herself quite literally in another world (Atriia), she realizes that her life was actually pretty good and she didn't appreciate what she had. She then risks everything to attempt to return to her family.

I haven't read a horror (I guess you can call it Dark Fantasy, but it's pretty much the same thing) novel in a long time, and I kept expecting things to be "happy" and that didn't happen much in this book. This book is well-written and I'm looking forward to reading the next book to see what happens next, because even though there was a pretty major twist that wasn't fully explained, I'm not really sure where the plot can go from here. It'll be interesting to see.

Update 6/27/11: It *was* all explained. I asked Ms. Bonning about it and she (kindly) reminded me of all the clues in the story that I didn't put together. I'm still looking forward to the second book. :-)

There is a glossary at the end of the book for the Atriian language. You'll need it. Some of the words are intuitive and it's pretty easy to pick up the language once you see the words a few times, but you don't want to try to read this book without the glossary.

This book does contain some sex (though it's not the focus of the book) and a lot of blood and violence.
