Haven: Review and Giveaway

From Goodreads:
When tragedy strikes, seventeen year-old Ashton Blake sets out on a cross-country road trip, leaving the comforts of Malibu for the mountains of Kentucky. Along the way, she encounters Gabe Willoughby—the mysterious drifter with eyes like the sea and a knowing smile. Getting to know Gabe raises questions about her past. But no secret can be buried forever, and Ashton soon finders herself in a world where water is air and myth becomes reality.

Just as Ashton comes to accept her newfound heritage, she’s summoned to fulfill a treaty laid down centuries before — a treaty that will divide her love and test her loyalty. In the end, her future isn’t her biggest concern, her humanity is. To run may mean war, but is she strong enough to stay?
 
My Review:
I was instantly captivated by this book. It was interesting, and it just caught my attention straight away. It was filled with love, and hate, and deep emotions and feelings that, overcome and forgotten, maybe have made things easier on the characters, was in the end, good for them to have.

I enjoyed Ashton, she was strong, and her relationships as she worked through who she wanted, and what was good for her.

I also loved the creatures in the book, and I wish we could've learned more about then, they weren't the typical creatures, and I liked that, and I just wanted to learn more about the 2 main ones, I think they might've been more, but I'm not quite sure.

I really enjoyed reading this book, so you guys should check it out!

Bio:
Hope Collier was born in Harlan County, Kentucky. Growing up in the Appalachia, she quickly learned that a good imagination — along with the ability to outrun the neighbor’s cantankerous dog — was essential to survival. Hope wrote and illustrated her first book at the age of six and never stopped writing. She now lives in central Kentucky with her husband, two daughters, and a menagerie of pets. When not spending time with her imaginary friends, you’re likely to find her stalking other writers on Twitter or searching out new ways of fitting square pegs into round holes.

  5. Nothing like having to fulfill a century-old treaty you didn't even know about. I think that part sounds really interesting and mysterious.

    The Willows has definitely been added to my Goodreads to-read bookshelf.
