Far Haven by Aleksandra Layland is the third book in the Windflower Saga, a splendid blend of epic fantasy with incessant action, romance, and adventure. Loris Kennet has been dealt the heaviest and cruelest blow of his life, losing his elite position in the Royal Cavalry of Pomerania in a dishonorable way. Stripped of his position, he is publicly flogged and both friend and foe hold him in contempt. The only consolation his father has for his banishment is that he will stay alive to clear his name, but little do they know that he is headed towards the very place where his nightmares receive clarity and where he’ll discover love and healing. But will he also find justice?

I love this series, its beautiful and wonderful characters, the lovely and poetic setting of Kimbria, and the awesome plot lines. This is a story about truth and justice, and the author has created a great character in Loris Kennet, a character who immediately draws the sympathy of readers. The story starts with a powerful premise, a man banished from his own, and the reader has myriad questions, wondering what will happen to him and if he’ll ever get justice — or revenge. The adventure is well developed in the story and the romance comes in as a juicy element that makes the story even more interesting and entertaining. Aleksandra Layland’s prose is gorgeous and readers will love the way she paints the landscapes and the beautiful Wastelands of Kimbria. The images are strong and vivid and will stay with readers for long. Far Haven is a great story with a lot of potential for great entertainment.
