Review Haven 6 by Aubrie Dionne

Title:Haven 6 (A New Dawn, #4)
Author : Aubrie Dionne
Source: Request
Genre: Sci/Fi Action Adventure
Length: Novel (326 pgs)

A product of an illegal pairing, Eridani is the only woman without a lifemate aboard the colonization ship, the Heritage, and she is determined her less than perfect DNA will not get in the way of finding love. As the ship nears it's final destination of Haven 6 after five hundred years of travel, images of the surface show evidence of intelligent life on a planet that's supposed to be uninhabited. Commander Grier assigns Eri to the exploratory team to spy on the alien society and return with information on how to defeat them.

When Eri's team lands, tribes of humans attack and Eri is saved by Striver, the descendant of a colonist and a pirate from Old Earth's colonization efforts in other parts of the galaxy. Striver helps Eri rescue her team and they are drawn to each other despite their different allegiances. While Striver battles with trusting Eri, Eri must decide whether to warn him and his people about the commander's intentions, or follow orders and complete her mission.


Haven 6 is a fun novel full of action, adventure, and uncertainty.  The characters were well written. I felt I knew and cared for even the minor players. While it was fast paced and enjoyable my only problem was that there were tons and tons of action/adventure but almost no romance. Yes, there was a budding relationship between Eri and Striver, but I would have liked to have seen it play out more. They do get their happily ever after, but I felt a little jipped by not getting the opportunity to read how it progressed from an innocent kiss to love :/

In all if you're looking for some adventure in a very realistic future setting, but not much steam, I can recommend Haven 6 for you.

*For the most enjoyment I highly recommend reading in series order!

 Paradise 21 (A New Dawn #1)

 Tundra 37 (A New Dawn #2)

 A Hero Rising (A New Dawn #3)

 Haven 6 (A New Dawn #4)


  1. Love that cover. Sounds like an alien invasion story I might like.

  2. This one looks a little too sci-fi for me... Although, I recently starting watching the TV show Falling Skies and am rather enjoying the alien storyline so I might have to take a second look at this series.
