Haven by Kristi Cook

  February 22nd 2011, Simon Pulse
416 pages, Hardcover
Library Copy
First in the Winterhaven series
Young Adult

From Goodreads:

One month into her junior year, sixteen-year-old Violet McKenna transfers to the Winterhaven School in New York’s Hudson Valley, inexplicably drawn to the boarding school with high hopes. Leaving Atlanta behind, she’s looking forward to a fresh start--a new school, and new classmates who will not know her deepest, darkest secret, the one she’s tried to hide all her life: strange, foreboding visions of the future.

But Winterhaven has secrets of its own, secrets that run far deeper than Violet’s. Everyone there--every student, every teacher--has psychic abilities, 'gifts and talents,' they like to call them. Once the initial shock of discovery wears off, Violet realizes that the school is a safe haven for people like her. Soon, Violet has a new circle of friends, a new life, and maybe even a boyfriend--Aidan Gray, perhaps the smartest, hottest guy at Winterhaven.

Only there’s more to Aidan than meets the eye--much, much more. And once she learns the horrible truth, there’s no turning back from her destiny. Their destiny. Together, Violet and Aidan must face a common enemy--if only they can do so without destroying each other first.


This is hard one for me to review, because I truly enjoyed this book, but there is one major problem. It’s two books and one show combined into one truly entertaining book.
It’s Harry Potter, met Buffy, met Twilight.

Violet is all “I would never leave you no matter your secrets.” Then disappears for him letting her know the secret she so desperately wants to know. But Violet has personality and is so incredibly friendly and goodhearted that’s impossible to not love.

So in general I had a love/hate relationship with this book. Mainly because while I shouldn’t like it. I do, a lot. It was highly entertaining. It’s not literary genius, it’s simply a good book for a long night.

Rating: 4/5

    It's also happen to me sometimes. I find it hard to review a book that I enjoyed. Need times to knit the words.

    It's all about Books

  4. Look forward to reading this! The summary's great so why not the cover? *sighs* Great review!
