Haven (Chronicles of Warshard #1) is the 2nd place winner of World’s Best Story!

 

Princess Haven was never meant to be Queen.

Her immortality has saved her time and time again, but when the last of her royal family dies at her feet, she is next in line to rule a nation on the brink of war. With no formal training on how to be Queen, Haven must rise to the occasion with the help of her best friends, and personal guard, or risk losing everyone she has ever loved.

With war to the West, and no escape to the East, the evil tyrant Kadia sets her sights on the six kingdoms. Haven’s neighbors are quick to fall under the swords of Kadia’s shadow soldiers, leaving a sea of bodies and a clear path to Haven’s only home. Haven must make a choice; take her people and flee to the foreign Republic across the sea or lead a last stand against a powerful dictator.

My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

Haven is a princess who suddenly and unexpectedly becomes queen of her kingdom when her parents and two older brothers are killed. Although Haven never expected to be queen, she steps up to the task and is not only good, she is great.

I like Katherine Bogle’s writing style. It flows well and the descriptions are good enough that I could picture people and places. The descriptions aren’t so lengthy, though, that I got bored with them.

The characters are well developed and complex. Haven is immortal so she insists on protecting her people, even her guards, since they can die and she can’t. She has an interesting relationship with Prince Emeril. They have been friends since childhood and she doesn’t want any more than that. She doesn’t want to marry or have children because of her immorality. Or is she possibly going to change her mind for the right man?

Haven is a young adult fantasy that I definitely recommend for young adults as well as adults. I’m looking forward to reading the next book.
