Haven

A Lowtown novel

By Lindsay J. Pryor

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A new series set in the Blackthorn universe by bestselling author Lindsay J. Pryor. Welcome to Lowtown, where a forbidden love might hold the only chance of redemption . . .

"I truly do feel that if you love the Paranormal genre and have not yet discovered Lindsay J. Pryor or these novels then you need to read them, experience them first hand." Keeper Bookshelf

A spin-off from the bestselling Blackthorn series by Lindsay J. Pryor, set in Lowtown, the neighbouring district to Blackthorn. The product of a brutal class system, the dark, gritty world of Lowtown will grip you and never let you go.

Every few days the handsome stranger comes into the café in Lowtown for an hour a time. Most of the time he keeps himself to himself - one drink and he leaves. Sometimes people meet with him but about what remains elusive, the edge of mystery and danger adding to his allure.

Not that Ember is allowed to think about him. She's finally on the cusp of gaining her citizenship and escaping Lowtown for good, so she can't be seen to be involved with a vampire - evidence of one single bite would be the end of her prospects. But when those prospects are rocked by her links to the district's dark underbelly, the stranger she must avoid could be her absolution - and she could be his . . .

"An incredible voice for paranormal." Rhyannon Byrd

"Dark, disturbing, enthralling, breath taking." Passionate About Books

Fate, however, has other plans for them. When Assail falls into a coma and lingers on the verge of death, his cousins seek out Sola and beg her to give him a reason to live. The last thing she wants is a return to her past, but how can she leave him to die?As a lethal new enemy of the vampires shows its face, Sola finds herself not only a target, but a mission-critical force in a war she doesn't understand.
