The Haven series

The Haven series is for younger readers (11+), and currently comprises three books: The Haven; The Haven – Revolution; and The Haven – Deadfall.

You don’t know it exists, but when you have nowhere else to turn, the Haven will find you. An adrenaline-fuelled adventure in a new series . . .

Our city. Our secret. Our rules.

Alone. On the run. Ollie Turner has nowhere to hide.

But he gets a second chance. Underneath the city there’s a secret organisation, far from adult eyes.

It’s called the Haven.

Soon Ollie is caught up in their battle: to stop Maddy Sikes destroying the city. Time is running out for Ollie and his new friends, and millions of lives are at stake . . .
