This series gave me chills of the best kind. I do recommend you read them all. While you can pick up this book and read it alone, the first two give you valuable insight into the characters and help show just how evil Dade is.
I can’t remember ever reading a book where the characters become involved in a cult. While the idea gave me the heebie-jeebies, I kept reading because I needed to see Dade get what was coming to him. For my newly created awards list, Dade wins best villain.
Dena Netherton does a marvelous job of showing you how a powerfully charismatic man can take the word of God and twist it to meet his needs. From this, a cult arises. Dade knows exactly who to target and how to draw them in. I would consider this real-world fiction. While the story itself might be fiction, cults and their followings are real and they do affect people all over the world.
The action and suspense pull you deep into the story of Haven, Thea, and Jesse. You feel what they feel and understand what they think. Even when you disagree with their actions, you understand what brought them to this point.

More from Dena
Haven’s Fire is the third and final installment of the suspense trilogy, Hunting Haven. In the first book, Haven’s Flight, I introduced Jesse, a teenaged boy, living with the delusional Dade Colton and his common-law wife, Mama. He’s a sweet and handsome young man, but just like Haven, he’s a victim of the two abusive adults who keep him imprisoned in a remote mountain cabin, far from the influence of church or friends or schools. He puts his life on the line to help Haven escape from Dade, and as I was writing the book, I fell in love with his courageous, unselfish character. So I vowed that I would give him a bigger role in the third book. (He’s still secondary in book two, Haven’s Hope.) And since Jesse wasn’t destined to be Haven’s love, I knew I had to find a girl for him, someone worthy of him, but someone who was dealing with her own dark past. In Haven’s Fire, we get to see Jesse, now a student living in Seattle, struggle to forgive Dade and Mama for the abuse they dealt out, and to help his girl, Thea, escape the dangerous leader of a cult who is bent on controlling and abusing her. In this suspense-filled book, it will take all of Jesse’s new-found faith, his prayers, and the support of Haven and her friends to rescue Thea from walking blindly into a world of intrigue, deception, and even, murder!
