This book was incredible. I didn’t expect it to be half as good as it was, most fantasy books now run along a similar theme, but this has to be one of the best I’ve read in a long time.

I loved the main character, Emily. She’s not overly dramatic or insecure like most heroines are. Yes, she experiences doubts from time to time, but mostly she approaches situations with a clear head and tries to sort things out the best she can. Whether that’s her miserable home life, finding her way in a world wh

Haven Lost is the first book in The Dragon's Brood Cycle, and we start off with sixteen-year-old Emily playing a game of ice hockey. Things don't go quite the way she expected, which shakes her belief in herself and her knowing. That night, Emily is taken from the world she knows, and wakes up to a whole new world. One where she has to learn the rules, and figure out just who she can trust.

This was such a great story! All the characters are believable and have their own quirks and foibles, altho

*This book was supplied to me by Audiobook Reviewer. This review was originally published on ABR's website.*

I don’t have any easy time finding fantasy books I like. I’ve read many bestseller fantasy authors and I haven’t cared for any of them. I find it’s best to read indie author fantasy, but I was still looking for something epic, a long journey into another world.

I finally found it.

Haven Lost is perfection in every way, ranging from its excellent pacing to its thorough explorations of not jus

Emily is a high school hockey star in Minneapolis, with an extremely dysfunctional family life. For the most she is a typical teenager, except for her strange ability to know when and where another player on the ice is going to move. One day it all changes when she starts seeing the reflection of a boy in mirrors and windows, and when she gets home finds her mother dead of a drug overdose. She runs away and when she awakes

Emily is running away from everything after her mother’s death when she finds she has run away so much she has made it to another world. Emily isn’t perfect, and unlike most others who find themselves in this position, she isn’t consumed with finding her way home. Though there does seem to be a little romance building starting about halfway through the book, it isn’t the all-consuming passion that far too many teen books are focused on these days. Instead this book is far more about the bonds of ...more

She finds herself immediate embroiled in a war between two opposing forces, both of which want to use her for their own ends.

Determined to go her own way, Emily adapts quickly to her new life and gains skills, confidence, and leadership abilities

This is a great YA book.

The story is fast paced, almost every sentence reveals something new about the world, the characters or story line.

This is a breath of fresh air in a genre filled with huge books full of fluff.

My only complaint is that sometimes things move too fast. Too oftern the characters jump recklessly into the breach with no plan and no preparation and don't pay the price.

Just a great, riveting, absorbing start to a what I hope will be a long-lived series. The characters are familiar without being cookie-cutter stereotypes. Mr. Lioncourt has obviously walked the land of his story and memorized every rift and roll of the landscape. I'm truly looking forward to the next installment.

What a great read ! Even though I am a voracious reader, I don't read a lot of Fantasy. So when I do it better be good...and different. This story accomplishes both with vivid characters and worlds. The story and plot line are flawless and the ending will have you begging for the next volume.
