Amazon Is Adapting Sara Holland’s Fantasy Novel Havenfall

Amazon has picked up a new fantasy novel for its streaming service: Sara Holland’s Havenfall. According to Deadline, Evan Daugherty, the writer behind Divergent, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Tomb Raider, is set to write the screenplay, along with production companies Lauren Oliver’s Glasstown Entertainment and Akiva Goldsman’s Weed Road Pictures.

The novel hit stores earlier this year, and is about a young woman named Maddie Morrow, who lives in Havenfall, a hidden town at the nexus of a series of portals to other worlds. The inn where Maddie works is considered a safe refuge for anyone seeking shelter. But when a body turns up, her uncle injured and boyfriend—a Fiorden soldier named Brekken—missing, it’s up to her to keep everyone safe and figure out what happened. In doing so, she discovers some dark secrets about her family and the inn. A sequel, Phoenix Flame, is set to be released next March.

Deadline notes that Daugherty will write the screenplay and will serve as executive producer long with Oliver and Goldman. There’s no indication when the project will debut on Amazon Prime Video, or who will end up being cast. But, it’s another book adaptation from the online marketplace, and it sounds very much like it’ll sit nicely alongside another of its fantasy dramas, Carnival Row.
