‘Haven by J. S. Collyer’ – Review by S. Lehenbauer
Way back at the beginning of this year, I reviewed an excellent debut novel called Zero: part Firefly, part James Bond, all awesome.
Today I am super excited to review the sequel, Haven, which will be for sale at the end of this month!
Collyer comes back to the wonderful characters she introduced in Zerowith every bit of adrenaline-soaked adventure she got me hooked on last time. While it’s not often that a sequel impresses me more than the first book, this one definitely did. Where Zero suffered a briefly laborious start, Haven jumped straight into the drama.
This means that those unfamiliar with Collyer’s work should definitely not read these out of order—no explanation is made as to who these people are. But trust me—once you read Zero, opening Haven is about as exciting as season 2 of Firefly would be.
This book is cinematic, full of breathtaking moments that had me setting my Kindle down to look around in a daze. The team of Hugo and Webb are most definitely my favorite bromance in books right now, and I want at least seventeen hundred more books featuring their adventures. The last few chapters had me holding my breath as I read, terrified that my suspicions were true (no spoilers!) and unwilling to look away for even a moment.
In short, if you like your scifi to read like an action movie, you absolutely want to get this series. Haven is coming on October 24th, just enough time to read Zero if you haven’t!
