My review - Huge fan of Sara Holland and I was so excited about her new book and it did not disappoint. The characters, the worlds, the history! It was wonderful and it makes me want more and I want to know more about each of the worlds.
We follow Maddie in this story who, is off to Havenfall Inn for the summer. Her uncle is the Innkeeper and does more than an average Innkeeper at an Inn. This place is different from other Inn's and down below there is some doors that leads to different realms. Some sealed shut from something that happened years ago. But, one night something happens. Someone is attacked and one of the doors has been opened.
Maddie has to step up, she has known for years this is the place she belongs and she always feels a pull to Havenfall but, something dark and dangerous is at bay and she needs to figure it out and try and keep the peace between the remaining realms.
This book had a little bit of everything. Murder, mystery, magic, LGBTQ+ Characters and it will keep you on your toes throughout. I think it was a really great start to a new series from Sara. Beautifully written with interesting characters I just want to know more about and wanting to know more about the realms. It had everything in it that kept me gripped from the beginning and I couldn't put it down.
A brilliant book from Sara that is one you will be wanting to pick up when it's out next week!
