I received this free digital ARC from the author in exchange for my honest review.
Join Haven and her siblings on four unique adventures in a time when war ravaged the six kingdoms…
HAVEN has always hated royal gatherings, and jumps at the chance to sneak away for a race through town on horseback. But when the young princess is injured, her ancestry is brought into question.
Much is expected of the heir to the Rythern throne, but when LUCIAN is forced to leave the warfront by his father, his reluctant agreement comes at a price.
The battle for Helms Keep has disastrous consequences for MARCEL. Soon he finds himself fighting both enemy forces and his own memories.
ASTRID is sent to the family summer home in the Cinder Mountains for her own safety. Only she doesn’t expect the knee-high snow and frigid temperatures. With only her guards to protect her, Astrid must dig deeper than she ever thought herself capable of in order to survive.
Having read the first in this series, Haven, the novella was quite enlightening. It offered insight into the near past. It shed some light on the events that led up to the first book and what happened to Haven’s siblings.
To be honest, I was expecting something a little different when I was offered an opportunity to read and review this book. I had expected it to take place in the more distant past. I expected some fun or important events that occurred between Haven and her siblings well before the years of the war. Though, it revolved predominantly around the war time.
While it was interesting to learn more about Haven’s siblings, I was a bit disappointed. The novel seemed to be more of an explanation of what happened to Haven’s family more than little snippets of time to learn more about Haven and her siblings. Yes, you get an idea of who they are. Still, I was hoping for something a little more entertaining and less focused on the war that affected Warshard in the main series.
