Aslan’s life has always been one of confusion. Everyone thinks he’s a bit crazy and unreliable, not understanding that it’s the voices in his head causing him problems. He wants to be normal. He wants the voices to go away. He wants the pain to stop. 

Being a Council elder is much harder than Torren Braddock ever imagined and the problems he’s facing are daunting.  Adding Aslan as a new mate, while a blessing, is still another issue Torren has to deal with…and someone he has to keep safe from harm. And in Aslan’s case that also includes protecting him from the voices in his head that are getting louder and more insistent that he do their bidding. 

Invincible is the latest release in Gabrielle Evans’ Haven series. Due to the continuing plot line and returning characters, I recommend the books be read in order. 

Ms. Evans has really outdone herself with the creation of Aslan’s unique and interesting personality. He might be my favorite character in the series so far.  Not only is he a sweet and caring guy but he comes with an almost crippling problem he’s dealt with for years. It makes him fascinating beneath the surface. Torren’s a totally different kind of man; in control, possessive, dynamic and an untrusting loner. He could easily have become unlikable but instead the author showed his insecurity and fear, turning it around. Well done, Ms. Evans. 

Getting Aslan and Torren together took some doing but once they finally get past their problems, watch out for the sparks. There are also plenty of opportunities to get reacquainted with characters introduced in the previous books and also the chance to meet a few new ones. You’ll find power, magic, danger, betrayal and friendship, making this another nice addition to this series of entertaining books. Look for Flawless coming next.
