This is the first novel that I read on my new Kindle yes, I am a fantasy geek The story was well told, although it could have used some more editing. However, it really shows the power of epublishing. This book is only available in digital form, and, according to the author's website, he has already sold tens of thousands of copies of his novel.
He tried submitting to major publishing companies multiple times, but he was denied. However, he is able to publish worthwhile and interesting nov This is the first novel that I read on my new Kindle yes, I am a fantasy geek However, he is able to publish worthwhile and interesting novels in this format. I love that we are getting access to quality novels that, for whatever reason, weren't good enough for the major companies.
I think having a Kindle might make me a fan of epublishing! Dec 08, Alena Orrison rated it it was ok. I love fantasy stories. I enjoy getting sucked into other worlds and having adventures. Unfortunately, this book did not do that for me. The storyline needs some developing and streamlining; it's choppy and inconsistent.
I didn't care about the characters very much and they mostly seemed to have the same personality. I found myself actually hoping the goblins would kill off one of the main characters just so there would be some real excitement. There is no reader to character connection. Some of I love fantasy stories.

Some of the phrases the characters used seemed inconsistent, as well. In one part a teenage boy sounded like someone from the Middle Ages when he never sounded like that before or again. There are lots of grammar errors and while I can overlook some of them, it is obvious this book was not edited very well. I would love to see this book edited and revised, as it has a lot of potential to become an epic fantasy adventure.
As it is right now, I have no interest in reading the next book in the series. I don't care how the story ends. Jun 27, Jay Collins rated it it was ok. I don't think I will continue with this series. I have liked other books by this Author but this one did not do much for me. Nov 22, Leo rated it did not like it.
Slow paced, dont care what happens to who, no connection. Apr 11, Ken Badertscher rated it it was ok Shelves: Though it is clumsily written, with paper-thin characters and spotty descriptions, this is not the worst fantasy story I've read. Where should I begin?
How about at the beginning: There's no hint of an arc of a story, just half-hearted exposition breaking a flat narrative. This happened, then that happened, then another thing happened. It was a chore to make it anywhere near the first point of confl Though it is clumsily written, with paper-thin characters and spotty descriptions, this is not the worst fantasy story I've read. It was a chore to make it anywhere near the first point of conflict in the story. Once there, it doesn't even feel like much of a conflict. The pace quickens a bit in the fifth chapter, but still nothing much happens.
The only thing drawing the characters on is a weak motivation: The story wends its way on, meandering back and forth as the River Folk go up and down the river on their errand. A pair of dwarve I mean "Battleaxe Folk" join the gang. The story plods along, punctuated by some actually interesting brief stories told by the female dwar An ancient Pact between the River Folk and the Battleaxe Folk and the Faeries is broken, and some bad Faeries do some bad things, and some good Faeries do some bad things, and the king of the Faeries helps the river folk.
There's a big fight that lasts for a couple chapters and then If an editor saw this book at all, they didn't spend much time on it. A few choice quotes: This groaning, however if it was audible, was entirely drowned out by the frightened bleating of the sheep However, it is just awful enough for me to utterly lose interest in any of the following books in the "series.
When I got to the end of the book, it had chapters of the subsequent book that just seem to be awesome. The book ends with the beginnings of the quest to find Myrrdin who has kept this factions at peace for centuries and the chaos that ensues when the Pact is broken. This is also one that incorporates folk-like tales and myths and has a kind of "old-style" vibe to it.
Quite enjoyable and easily okay for all ages. I would definitely recommend this author and look forward to the next book in the series. A slow start to a story that is actually creative and entertaining. I will not lie, this introduction to the Haven series starts out feeling far too contrived. We start out with main characters that seem one-dimensional and extremely archetypal. The initial buildup in the beginning seems really generic and you start to feel like you already know what's going to happen. Winter is creeping up far too early, there's an unnatural chill in the air, strange things have been happening lately, and the locals are uneasy.

As our heroes make the journey from their secluded family home to the the main town to bring much anticipated supplies for the annual festival, one of the teens on the cusp of manhood see's in the distance a shadowy figure that disappears almost as quickly as he appears, making it so the other boy doesn't see a thing. The strange thing of course, isn't necessarily the figure itself, though his creepiness is part of it it's the intense feeling of dread that our hero feels upon seeing this shadowy horseman that brings on the biggest feeling of foreboding.
After reading this intro I was sorely tempted to give up this read, and move onto something else.

I forced myself to keep reading though and I'm glad I did. From this hyper generic beginning an interesting and creative story unfolds. One that you wouldn't expect based on a large portion of this first book. Outside of a few main characters none of the other characters including some you would assume would be main really ever develop, but I found myself being ok with this.
The story surrounding those few main characters is strong enough to drive the plot and keep you entertained.

As the series progresses the author seems to settle in, and the characters, world, and plot become much less contrived though you find yourself occasionally running into this problem and the flow of the story moves along quite nicely. The character development isn't ever quite as strong as I would like it to be, but for how short these books are its' enough to make you care about what happens to the main characters.

This first book is clunky and even at the end though it gets better has you wondering whether you should take a gander at the second one in the series. Why read it then? Because this first book sets up a very interesting, entertaining, and creative story through the rest of the series. The rest of the books are very much worth reading, and remind me of the fairy tales I loved so much when I was a child.

I assure you, that once you get through the tedious reading in this first book you will be happily surprised by the strong and entertaining story that follows. I would actually rate this book 3 stars, but the series as a whole 4 stars. The series has it's flaws, and it drags under occasionally, but overall still manages to be quite entertaining.
