Honestly, when I requested this excerpt I didn’t expect that I would eventually get approved for the full arc, and yet here I am reviewing the introductory sample as I continue to read the rest of the story. I kind of have inconsistent hopes for Sara Holland’s Havenfall. And it all ties in heavily to what I know of her writing and what I’ve read from the excerpt.
To begin, I didn’t really like Holland’s first novel, Everless. For many reasons, it just seemed subpar to me. But, as I’d finished the first novel I eventually figured I might as well read the second and lo’ and behold I actually really loved it (barring one annoyance, of course). Secondly, I don’t know what to think of Havenfall so far?
I think, ultimately, I just feel that I haven’t read enough to determine what I exactly think of it. In that respect, I’m glad to have the rest of the book now to read. I’ll just have to see where the story takes me before I make a final decision. I do really love the cover, though.
I was provided a free copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
