To add to the intrigue, Rain finds himself attracted to Freddie, a beautiful young woman who seems to be trouble and is hiding a bunch of secrets of her own. As the mysteries heat up, so does their attraction. Between the romance and the mysteries, this book was impossible to put down! The writing flows so beautifully, and the pace is really perfect. Rain gets to piece together what he knows (not only about the secret lives of the townspeople but also about some recent murders) and learns tidbits from others in town that really keep the pace intense and steady throughout.
Overall, it was a really great story. I liked Rain a lot as a main character- although he had a bit of a rough side, he's really just a very lonely and isolated boy and experiences a lot of growth during the story. Although the story is wrapped up by the end of the book, I would love to see more books with these characters. There were a few side characters that I wish we could have learned even more about (like Petra- she was awesome!), and I will keep my fingers crossed that we can spend more time in this world and with other characters in future books. I don't want to say too much about what the fantasy elements are as they are slowly described in the book (and would be spoilery), but it has so much potential for a really fantastic series! I highly recommend this to all YA fantasy lovers!

I went into reading Haven having read the blurb. I still had no idea what the story was about. From the beginning, the story had me intrigued and that intrigue continued as the mystery kept getting deeper and deeper.
Seventeen-year-old Aaron “Rain” Ryland arrives in New Wurzburg, a small town in Texas Hill Country, after his mother dies in a Houston area shelter. He’s surprised that his mother had a sister that he knew nothing about and is even more surprised at the things he discovers about his family. Friederike “Freddie” Burkhart isn’t your typical seventeen-year-old girl. She was conceived, born, and raised to be a leader. Freddie and Rain establish a friendship and that friendship grows to be so much more. But there are those who don’t want her to lead and view Rain’s presence as a threat. Soon, Rain and Freddie find themselves in a race against time to figure out who’s trying to kill them and stop Freddie from fulfilling her destiny.
First and foremost, I LOVED the characters of Rain and Freddie. They’re simply amazing. They’re strong characters on their own and even stronger and better together. Both believe in doing what’s right, no matter what it might cost them. Both are strong-willed and refuse to back down. I loved that there was a huge mystery/suspense element to this story. The secondary characters definitely help in keeping you guessing as to what was happening.
For me, Haven was all about trying to figure out what was going on in the town of New Wurzburg and who you could and couldn’t trust. For that reason, I’m not going to get into all the details. Haven was an addictive read. It’s like Twilight and Grimm rolled together. While there is conspiracy and murder, this story is so much more. Haven is about family, friendship, young love, and believing in yourself. Ultimately, it’s about finding out where you belong and where your safe haven is.
