female lead, Maddie, was a relatable and sympathetic protagonist She was insecure and vulnerable, which I really enjoyed She felt real WHAT I DIDN T LIKE Plot The plot was large and had many tangents all over the place in my view, too many It made the story feel busy and messy Luckily, it all came together in the end, but the getting there was rough.Twist There were some major plot twists in this book that were probably supposed to be real shockers However, they were not, they were so transparent ARC provided by the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review im not a fan of novellas, so no one issurprised than me when i say this would be better as a novella and serve as a.5 prequel to a main series and heres why i think that while the plot and world building is definitely unique, i dont feel the high stakes intensity that should accompany some of thelife altering situations that occur in this i do think that will come later on in the series, now that an introduction has been made to how the world works, why it is what it is, and t im not a fan of novellas, so no one issurprised than me when i say this would be better as a novella and serve as a.5

situations that occur in this i do think that will come later on in the series, now that an introduction has been made to how the world works, why it is what it is, and the appropriate players have been all set up and while this is all good information to have, it doesnt feel crucial at this point in time the characters have no depth to them like, i can tell you their names and where they come from, but thats probably it there just really isnt any in depth characterisation present the focus is definitely on the world building, and while that is important, i just couldnt connect with any of the characters the pacing is glacial oh my goodness, its so slow this is told in first person POV and its constant internal monologue i would say its a 60 40 split between internal narration description and dialogue respectively and as someone who prefers dialogue, this just seems to drag on and on i mean, overall, this isnt a terrible book it lays a pretty decent foundation and promises to be a pretty interesting series there just isnt enough substance to this to merit a full length novel, in my opinion 2.5 stars Instagram Twitter FacebookPinterestDNF p.55 This was kind of intolerable and read like self insertion fic Maddie was such a Mary Sue When I was a teenager, it was really popular on Quizilla for people to write about characters who had these totally messed up

because she needs to escape from her life and the fact that her mother is on death row Oh, and of course the hot faerie guy she likes hangs out around there, too.WHAT A SHOCK Here s the thing even though the writing is okay, the story telling is not This author annoys me for the same reasons authors like Emily A Duncan, Sarah J Maas, and Maggie Stiefvater annoy me If you like those authors, you might like this But if you re tired of Basic Girl YA and the formulaic tropeyness that seems to be a rule in fantasy WELL.If you want to read a better story about a magic hotel that serves as a fantasy way station, read Ilona Andrews s Sweep series And if you want to read a better chosen girl story about a hapless girl from our world who ends up in a dark and interesting fantasy world of the author s own design, read Clive Barker s Abarat Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review 1 star 3.5 stars I found Sara Holland s debut Everless a very good kind of surprising It was nothing I expected and yet everything I wanted both at the same time While I didn t fall in love with the heroine, I thought she had it in her to BE a heroine and that is something that kept me wanting to readabout her This is a completely new series set in a completely new world and a whole new set of distinct protagonists and antagonists The storyline is not recycled

fall in love with the heroine, I thought she had it in her to BE a heroine and that is something that kept me wanting to readabout her This is a completely new series set in a completely new world and a whole new set of distinct protagonists and antagonists The storyline is not recycled The writing is elegant The characters are adequately three dimensional with a back story for each I found the idea of a haven between various worlds intriguing But the pacing is so slow We know the author has something planned for the world building in the future After all, why would she introduce us to the worlds if not to get us excited about them Unfortunately, we do not get to explore them like we get to explore Havenfall through the eyes of Maddie, the innkeeper s niece Because of that, I feel like this first book islike a prequel than an actual first tome Thankfully, there is a semblance of a storyline with action sequences even if this book contains too much talking and too many descriptions for its own good Moreover, there are lots of twists and turns thrown in and you will not see them coming I sure like that Sara Holland did not wait until the final ten pages to shock us with them Instead, they are spread around pretty evenly so it makes for a compelling story even if the pacing really is slow Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin
