Haven Lost, by Josh De Lioncourt, takes you into the mind and heart of Emily Haven. And there you remain for the whole wild ride.We meet and get to know other characters, But none so well as emily.She goes from more or less just existing In a disfunctional family situation, [her only excitement are the high school hockey games she plays] to a life of purpose. But in an arena she never could have imagined.
What all this is leading up to without giving away any spoilers, is that this is as fine a fantasy novel as any seasoned author could write. Mr. De Lioncourt has achieved something quite special with this first-time offering. I'm a very picky scifi and fantasy reader, and he now has me waiting to see what happens to Emily and her friends.
Excellent book Josh.

I loved the main character, Emily. She’s not overly dramatic or insecure like most heroines are. Yes, she experiences doubts from time to time, but mostly she approaches situations with a clear head and tries to sort things out the best she can. Whether that’s her miserable home life, finding her way in a world where she doesn’t belong or entering battle she is generally as focussed as she possibly can be.
Every other character in this book had a purpose. I either found myself laughing or getting frustrated with their actions, willing them to help or just hoping they would go away to leave our protagonists to be successful. I particularly want to mention Celine, who made me laugh a great deal but is also a perfect example of the friend we all need.
Every time I thought I had figured out where the book was going something happened and I was back at square one again. At no point though was I bored. There was always something happening, some situation to be figured out and added into the puzzle that was slowly taking form.
I’m going to be honest and say I didn’t see what was revealed in the ending coming at all. It was as much of a surprise to me as it was to Emily.
I can't wait for book two!
I also want to mention that the author gave me a copy in exchange for an honest review, but I liked it so much I bought it on kindle too.
