You lucky people! We have three copies of Season 2 of Haven to giveaway, to anyone who wants them.
Haven, Maine appears to be just another lively, New England seaside town, complete with quaint shops, scenic beaches and a busy harbor. But when FBI Agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) first arrived on a routine case, she encountered the mysterious underside of Haven. Her investigation lead her to discover that Haven has a secret: it’s home to a number of people suffering from supernatural afflictions.
Audrey found that she is uniquely qualified to handle these supernatural events – referred to in local legend as “the Troubles” – and after discovering that Haven might hold clues about her own mysterious past, she chooses to stay in the town to do so.
Haven, based on the Stephen King novella “The Colorado Kid”, is the story of Audrey’s entry into this seemingly normal town. Across the seasons, Audrey’s quest to understand herself and the great mysteries of Haven will drive her ever deeper down the rabbit hole.
Do you want a copy? If so, just leave a comment and tell us you want in and we’ll randomly pick three winners in a week or two. We’ll have a full review of Season 2 up here soon.
PLESE NOTE! This offer is only open to Australian residents.
