haven chronicles

Princess Haven was never meant to be Queen.

Her immortality has saved her time and time again, but when the last of her royal family dies at her feet, she is next in line to rule a nation on the brink of war. With no formal training on how to be Queen, Haven must rise to the occasion with the help of her best friends, and personal guard, or risk losing everyone she has ever loved.

With war to the West, and no escape to the East, the evil tyrant Kadia sets her sights on the six kingdoms. Haven’s neighbors are quick to fall under the swords of Kadia’s shadow soldiers, leaving a sea of bodies and a clear path to Haven’s only home.

As Kadia’s obsession with Haven mounts, little time remains, and Haven must make a choice; join together with her fellow Royals, and test her immortality in a final stand against the evil Queen, or flee across the sea to a foreign republic in hopes of salvation. Both choices have a cost. Both plans could go awry. Haven must decide quickly, or she might be the only one left.


I found the story pleasing enough, Haven had some good qualities. She was a good role model to her countrywomen. She showed them they did not have a weak Queen. But she was often selfish and I found the love interests annoying more than anything.

Kadia was a great character, off her rocker but a great character and gave the story more depth. I wish got to more a little more about  her though.

The story felt a little dragged out, but had a lot of interesting plot points.

Havens power was interesting but confusing, she is meant to be immortal but there was a few points where it was indicated that she would die of old age. I think the author has gotten confused between invinceable and immortal.

I do not think I will be reading the next book in the series.

It was a sweet interesting book and worth it if you like fantasy books espeically ones based on war.
