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 favorite part of reading HAVEN was Collier’s ability to set the scene. She has a way of making you hyper-feel every moment and lose your sense of reality in the process. This unique story is wrapped beautifully around mythology in a way I haven’t seen before, and the leading chicka, Ashline, could easily be one of my favorite characters in YA with her tough determination and (let’s be honest), her kick-arse name. HAVEN also has the perfect amount of action to romance ratio, a must for any great YA read. I’ll sum it up with this: unique concept + admirable main character + steamy boys + perfect pacing = YA book to-die-for.
