Hallows Haven - Book Review

Hallows Haven
About The Book 
Captain of the cheerleading team, 16 year old Gwen Valiente has it all--the best of friends, a loving home, and a bright future. Little does she know that the people she loves the most have been keeping secrets--life-altering secrets.

When strange things start to happen to Gwen, she is thrust into a magickal new realm called Hallows Haven. Leaving the ordinary behind, she discovers that she can do things beyond her wildest dreams. As Hallows Haven begins to feel more like home, Gwen wonders how she ever felt satisfied with everyday life in Michigan.

Too late, Gwen realizes that even in this realm full of light and magick, danger lurks. Someone close to her is not what he seems and someone will do anything to draw her out of Hallows Haven and into the darkness. Even worse, some of that darkness may already exist within her, threatening her chance to make Hallows Haven her permanent home.
Have Gwen's loved ones continued to keep dangerous secrets? Can Gwen resist the call of darkness? 


Brittany's Review
I received an ARC of Hallows Haven for a honest review. This was a first time reading a book by Melissa Brodsky and Nicole Madison so I had no idea what I was in for.
Wow, let me say what an Amazing book!! It absolutely blew me away. At first it was a little slow for me but by the middle of the book I just wanted to know more and had to keep reading. This book just pulled me in with all of the creativity and imagination that it had.
I applaud these authors who wrote this book. They came up with some very fascinating ideas and really allowed us readers to go into a new world altogether.
This book is about a girl named Gwen who discovers that the life she has been living isn't what she thought. Her grandparents have been withholding secrets from her. Everything takes a huge turn and her life is suddenly no longer the same. She must move away to Hallows Haven and slowly learns secrets about herself, her parents and grandparents.
Nothing is what it seemed in Gwens life and now she must become a completely while discovering that there are great dangers in the world around her that want her. What will happen in Hallows Haven is unpredictable but yet intriguing.
I must say, I hate a cliffhanger but this book has one. It is not one that will leave you mad but more like blown away. You will be in awe and so excited, at least I am. I am looking forward for book two! I would highly recommend this book to friends and just have to say once again, what an Amazing book!!  :D 
I give this book 4.5 Stars

 Melissa Brodsky 

Melissa used to tell everyone she was going to be a writer when she grew up. Well, she is suddenly a grown up and it looks like she was telling the truth.

Living in a modern-day "Yours, Mine and Ours" household, Melissa is the biological mother of 3 children and the full-time stepmother to her husbands 2 children. On some days, she may even be considered "evil"...and not just as the stepmother!

With a strange vampire fascination since she was young, it was only natural that Melissa began writing stories about the Paranormal.

She is currently co-authoring a Paranormal Romance trilogy with fellow writer Nicole Andrews Moore called "The Dark Redemption Series". Book 1 is due out in June 2013.

And because she has so much free time on her hands, Melissa is also working on a YA Paranormal Series, the first book "Hallows Haven" will be available late summer.

She parlayed her love of creating first into a career as a freelance writer and then into fiction writing. Her favorite genres are paranormal fiction and romance, followed closely by horror.A long time Pennsylvanian, Nicole spends her days writing, soaking up books, teaching her five children how to be weird (in a good way), dancing for the endorphins and gardening.
