Book review written by Misty Overstreet-Roberts, blogger at http://theladypreferstosave.com
This book, the first of a series, is written in a style similar to that of J.K. Rowling, is beautifully mastered, and despite its short length, is very captivating . The story centers on Sam Dalcome, a young teen, who alongside his friend Travis, find their magic-induced world of hijinks and discovery halted after discovering that the world of magic, that they so long for in their imaginations, is real in the “Haven.”
With this knowledge, the pair sets off on a thrwarted mission to uncover the origins of magic, and the beyond. Sam, sadly must also plays victim, when the knowledge is unearthed, that his mother also dabbled into the realms, that he himself was just discovering.
What becomes clear to the reader early on is that Haven, like any other unknown land, holds a vast history, hidden within the shadows is Haven’s most malevolent predator, and Sam’s nemesis, the Viper and his magic. A hunter forged from the blackest of magic, it watches, waiting for the perfect moment to strike. This is the setting for a fantastic novel!
Without spoiling the rest of the book, I can honestly say this page-turning novel, will be well within my mind’s eye until the next installment is released!
