Today’s second team review is also from Karen she blogs at http://mytrainofthoughtson.wordpress.com
Karen has been reading Haven by Katherine Bogle
This book introduces you to princess Haven; when her parents and brothers are killed, the immortal young woman needs to deal with war and an evil adversary.
With Haven, Katherine Bogle has created a fairytale-like fantasy story with more than a hint of romance and dark magic. It is a quite enjoyable and intriguing read; it felt like listening to a fairytale. Katherine Bogle paints a clear picture of Haven’s mind while the story evolves. Haven’s character develops nicely, growing with her tasks and/or obstacles – thus changing from being irritating to appreciated. The characters are of sufficient depth when required. I loved the wordplay regarding one of her female guards: Lareina (Spanish: La Reina = The Queen). The story is nicely woven and has a good flow. I am looking forward to the second book in the series.
This is a book for you if you like fantasy, fairytales, and stubborn protagonists.
