Havenfall Harbor by Albany Walker Book Review

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Rating: Five Student Meetings

Thoughts On Plot: I really enjoyed this story very much. It wasn’t too fast. It wasn’t too slow. Everything played out as it should as far as I could see. The characters were relatable. I wanted to keep reading. I do want to give a fair warning that this book ends on a cliffhanger and book two has not been released yet. I really don’t like cliffhangers at all, but I read this anyway. I’m so ready for book two!


Thoughts On Characters: The main character in this book is a human named Quinn who gets a job at the paranormal school as a liaison between the human and paranormal worlds. I really related to her so much. She’s so passionate about what she does and she doesn’t give up. Two other noteworthy characters are a Were named Evan and a vampire named Griffin. Both of them feel a pull to Quinn that they can’t resist no matter how hard they want to or try. There are some other great characters, but I didn’t get to see enough of them as I’d of liked to.


Notable Points In Book: Cliffhanger. Really funny and witty. Isn’t an instalove story.


Rating On Narrator: Brooke Daniels- 5 Stars, Brandon Williams- 5 Stars- Both narrators did a fantastic job narrating this book.


Thoughts On Audiobook: I was really into this audiobook. I loved both of the narrators. William’s voice had a gruff quality that made me think that he could actually be paranormal himself. I mean it’s possible. Just saying. I really hope that they narrate the second book as well. It wouldn’t be the same without them.


Suggestions For Author: I’d like to see more of the secondary characters in the second book. Especially Alice and the students.


Would I Recommend?: Yes


Similar To: Think of it as an adult House of Night. Except it’s all from the staff’s point of view instead of the students.

Quotes:

I’ve never been the girl that likes bad boys, I’m much too pragmatic for that, but something about Griffin both intrigues me and pisses me off. I can pinpoint what pisses me off no problem, it’s the other more curious part that’s driving me insane. I remember one of my roommates my junior year had a thing for a football player. He treated her like total shit, I asked her why she put up with it. “He burns bright Quinn,” she said, “so bright that sometimes it’s worth the scorch to be close to him.” I didn’t understand her words then, and still don’t. Well, I don’t think I understand them anyway. I’m not exactly sure how I would respond if Griffin showed a real interest in me, but I do know he would need to stop being a dick.

“You guys want anything while I’m up?” “More popcorn?” Evan gives me a hopeful wince, tipping the empty bowl in my direction. “Are you actually going to share some this time?” I place my hands on my hips. “You had a handful,” he counters. “Yeah, and I thought I was going to lose a finger.” Teasing him is fun. Evan grumbles about eating something under his breath, but I don’t catch it. Griffin lifts his hand to hide his mouth, but his eyes crinkle on the sides, giving him away.

Evan grabs my arm when I move to walk away, his grip firm, punishing. “She’s not responsible for how you feel. It’s not her job to fight your demons.”

I fill the cup and stand there with the lid in my hands. Quinn had tea in her room, but I didn’t notice any honey, nor was there milk in her fridge. I put the top on and stalk over to the counter to pay. Here I am, making tea for a human and feeling ridiculous for doing it, but I still take her the fucking cup because I want her to be happy.
