Haven Irena Dante, seventeen, struggles with a dysfunctional family. Her workaholic father is never there, but his absence is filled by a loving mother harboring the secret and mysterious past of their family. The Dantes are inheritors of a centuries old legacy stretching back to Dante Alighieri himself. They fight to contain the nine circles of hell described in the classic literature "Dante's Inferno."
Today, the nine circles have infiltrated the world at every level, operating as a secret society known as "The Aristocracy." The only thing stopping The Aristocracy from world domination is the Dante family line.
And now its Haven's turn to carry that torch.
Combining literary fiction with fantasy, this action-packed young adult adventure races through dimensions of paranormal, science fiction, and the supernatural.

I always enjoy stories of strong female protagonist such as Haven in Haven of Dante: The Staff of Moshe by Leonardo Ramirez. This seventeen-year-old martial arts expert despises her father for ignoring his family and preferring work to spending time at home. When her mother is killed, Haven is thrust into a series of trials as she discoveries herself and her family's legacy of fighting evil and preserving the world. I loved the originality of the paranormal thriller, though I found a few of Haven's trials underdeveloped. Or perhaps I just wanted more. The past is fast and makes for a quick read. Great lessons for anyone.
