Long ago, after the Third World War, going aboard The Haven saved a group of people. Time passes, with the inhabitants of Haven working, teaching, learning, and perpetuating the closed society.
We meet Gabriel a few generations later - where it has been so long since the original inhabitants came to Haven that the primary task of the teachers is to teach skills used to repair failing systems on the ship. Basic arithmetic is a key skill, and things like The Sun haven’t been seen in so long they are taught using pictures from books. People live in harmony - the rules and edicts of the ship designed to keep everything - and everyone in check.
This peaceful society is shattered when a citizen is found murdered, and a member of the ruling council is the primary suspect. Through Gabriel’s eyes, we discover the primary reason - food and water is dwindling - and there is no way to replenish the supply, Or is there? No spoilers here, but I was shocked when the bigger story was revealed!
Mr. Dennis’ ability to describe the ship is phenomenal. I could smell and feel everything - from the lukewarm showers, to the slightly stale recycled air. And the interactions between shipmates are completely believable - the jealous boyfriend, the benign Captain. Sara is a complex, well-rounded character, and I found myself rooting for both her and Gabriel as the story unfolded. The action scenes are well written, and I was out of breath frequently as I waited for the outcome of battles involving my favorites.
I have seen this book compared to the WOOL / SILO series, and I believe that this book, while similar, is different and strong enough to stand as a work on its own. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an amazing dystopian/post-apocalyptic tale. Fate’s Haven is a good read for all ages, and I have already bought the sequel (The Enemy Within) and I am anticipating as good a read in this book.
