Description

Never reap a harvest sown with blood.
150 years ago, in Haven, Kansas, a witch was burned at the stake. This October, in Haven, Kansas, a boy plays a prank on his big sister. Suddenly, crows fill the skies, a female scarecrow plagues the town, and teenagers are dying left and right. Amidst the violence, strange things keep happening. Lora Townsend discovers a secret room behind the wall of her bedroom, in which a dark and foul Book of Shadows has been hiding for over a century. The book belonged to an ancestor who documented the spells and stories of the strange woman he loved... a woman the town later killed for practicing witchcraft.

There are whispers on the wind. The death toll is rising. And Lora and her family seem to be the center of it all. They must call upon Lora's small knowledge of magic to help them. Will they be able to take the town back from the witch, and can they manage it without losing their lives in the process?

Lois Duncan meets Joss Whedon in this literary slasher for the twenty-first century!

***********************
"Filled with a generous mix of fantasy, intrigue, and grab-you-by-the-throat horror, Alethea Kontis's HAVEN is a powerhouse novel every fan of fine YA literature should have on the shelf." -- Bram Stoker Award winner Tom Piccirilli

"Kontis writes with poise and passion, delivering chills and thrills with every page. A must read." -- New York Times bestselling author Sherrilyn Kenyon

"HAVEN is a page-turner and its characters are drawn well -- they're believable, both in their actions and in their dialogue (the 'dialogue' of young teens isn't as easily captured as some writers with less talent believe). It's an exciting tale of witchery and revenge, told with style and intelligence, that is, most importantly, a heck of a lot of fun. I simply enjoyed it from start to finish." -- T. M. Wright, author of A Manhattan Ghost Story

***********************
Alethea Kontis is a princess, fairy godmother and geek. She has dabbled in picture books, poetry, essays, online video rants, and making horror movies. Princess Alethea lives on the Space Coast of Florida with her teddy bear, Charlie.
