Thank you to Bloomsbury UK for sending me a finished copy of this gorgeous book!
I read the ARC and absolutely loved it! And the finished cover is absolutely gorgeous! I could look at it all day.
Maddie loves spending summers at her uncle’s Inn at Havenfall. But the Inn is much more than a Maddie’s safe haven, and life in Havenfall isn’t without its secrets. Beneath the beautiful, sprawling manor in Colorado lie hidden gateways to other worlds, some long-sealed by ancient magic.
When a body is found on the grounds, the volatile peace brokered between these worlds is irrevocably compromised. What’s worse is that Maddie’s friend Brekken stands accused of the murder. With everything she loves at stake, Maddie must confront shocking truths about the dangers lurking beneath Havenfall – and discover who she really is.
The world building in this was something I especially loved. It wasn’t too rushed and gave enough information while still retaining mystery. You learn most about Havenfall and a little about the other worlds. I can’t wait to learn more about the other worlds, which I assume will come in the following book/books
I love how complex it all is with the different worlds and cultures, magic and traditions all built around this safe haven.
I really adored the characters, especially Maddie and Taya and their relationship and dynamic. I can’t wait to see how they develop.
Although some plot twists were a little predictable, they were still done so well that I was still shocked when they happened, even though i’d predicted them!
I cannot wait for the next book. It’ll be a long wait because I read this in around November, but it’ll be worth the wait!
