Legends never die; they just go into hiding....
Sixteen-year-old Emily Haven, heroine of the girls' hockey team at Lindsey High, has spent her young life keeping two secrets: her rapidly deteriorating home life and the seemingly supernatural power that makes her a star on the ice. When she begins seeing visions of a lost and ragged boy reflected in mirrors and shop windows, a series of events unfolds that tears her from 21st-century Minneapolis and leaves her stranded in another world with horrors to rival those she has left behind. Lost amidst creatures of fantasy and legend, she's forced to confront the demons of both her past and future to unravel the riddle of the mysterious boy and embark upon a journey to uncover long forgotten histories and the dark, cloaked figure in the shadows behind them all. Caught between opposing forces of a war she doesn't understand, Emily must find new strength within herself and, above all, the will to remember her friends.

Haven Lost is an entertaining and well thought out fantasy adventure novel. The narration is very good with some great voice acting and excellent interpretation of the text and although there is some dialogue that at times can feel jarring it is easily forgiven due to the wider context of the book and some of it's genuinely surprising plot twists.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the book and would recommend giving it a go. As far as I am aware this is Josh de Lioncourt's first book and it shows a lot of promise.

"great new author"
I really enjoyed this book. It was very gritty and a good read. I wasn't expecting how it all played out. Can't wait for the next one!
"A+ All the Way!"
Haven Lost is a joy to listen to. Josh de Lioncourt's characters win your heart as Emily and her companions share an amazing adventure filled with mystery, bravery and unexpected discoveries. The author does an exceptional job describing the remarkable world that is the setting for this story. You easily are transported from the place you know into a whole new experience as you travel with Emily on her search for answers that seem unreachable. Reay Kaplan does a superb job bringing the characters to life. Her outstanding ability to capture the personality of each one adds to the story and overall enjoyment of this audio version. I highly recommend all the wonderful suspense, laughter and edge of your seat adventure contained in Haven Lost! Enjoy.
