Review # 13: Haven by Kristi Cook

Description: (From book jacket)
     "Violet McKenna isn’t a normal girl with normal teenage issues; she has more to contend with than most people could handle. Violet thought she was just crazy when she had a vivid vision of her dad’s murder. Her life started falling apart when her premonition came true. She’s had flashes of other events too. The problem was nobody believed her until she found a new school: Winterhaven. At Winterhaven, Violet finally feels like she belongs. She quickly finds a close group friends and discovers that they too have psychic ‘gifts’—as do all the students at Winterhaven. But as soon as she feels settled she discovers the most intriguing and alluring boy she has ever met, and things quickly go awry. As the attraction between them grows, intense visions of the boy’s death start to haunt her. In her premonitions the secret he is unwilling to share begins to reveal itself. And to Violet's horror, she learns that their destinies are intertwined in a critical--and deadly--way."
     This book felt like a combination of other young adult novels; it was a mix of Twilight and The Sookie Stackhouse Series. It could have definitely had a stronger plot and more developed characters. It wasn't what I expected, with a slow plot and an abrupt ending. I guess if there's a sequel I will try it, but I wasn't too impressed with this book. 

Rating: DNR (2.5/5)
