#Review of Haven (War of the Princes #1) by @ARIvanovich #Thanks @Netgalley @alloyent

From missing socks to missing people, nothing could remain hidden from seventeen year-old Katelyn Kestrel for long, but after locating a forbidden passage out of her isolated country, Haven, she discovers for the first time that there are some things that should never be found. Outside the safety of her homeland's borders, Katelyn meets Rune, a young soldier who will die without her immediate aid. She never considered that helping him would lead to her capture. While being held prisoner by the handsome Lord Dylan Axton, she learns that the outside world is rife with war and controlled by people with extraordinary powers. It becomes clear that there was a very good reason the founders of Haven locked their people away from the rest of the world. The depth of her peril reaches a fever pitch when a ruthless Commander wants Katelyn dead. Her only hope is to return to Haven, but can she survive long enough to find her home? 
A. R. IVANOVICH enjoys being swallowed by forests, sleeping on lakes, and watching the sky. Writing is her foremost passion, followed by painting, horseback riding, and nachos, not necessarily in that order. A. R. regularly encourages those around her to follow their dreams no matter the obstacles, because, as she can attest, the rewards are more than worth the effort. She was raised in Hawaii, where she once again resides, with her fiancé and their extensive family of rescue pets.

This is an amazing world that the author has created and kinda reminded me a little of The City of Ember.  This was a great story about a girl who finds a door to a world that hasn't been seen in over 700 years. The main character was wonderful she wasn't all powerful and had her own flaws which just made her seem more real.  She was a joy to read about!  There was a little romance but it takes second stage to the story itself which was also a nice change from the norm.  So I know your wondering why the 4 stars.  Well this book was not without its faults.  

The first being the first few chapters were horror!  Read it you will understand. 
And the ending starts getting a little meh and one character Rune changes just a little to much to be believable. 

But all in all this one was a fabulous read/story! 

 Go Into This One Knowing 
Romance takes second stage in this wonderful crafted new world!
