Afloat by Erin Healy (Review)





About Afloat:

Who will you trust when dark waters rise?

Eagle's Talon is an architectural marvel-shining residential units afloat in a protected cove of the gorgeous Rondeau River. The project is nearly complete, partially occupied, and ready to make investors rich when a sinkhole gives way. Then torrential rains and a flood leave a ragged collection of builders, investors, and residents stranded in one floating building, cut off from the rest of the world.
They're bitterly divided over what to do next.
Architect Vance Nolan insists they should sit tight and wait for rescue. Developer Tony Dean wants to strike out into the darkness. And single mom Danielle Clement, desperate to protect her young son, Simeon, struggles to hold their motley band together.
Power failure, a pall of unnatural daytime darkness, explosions in the distance, then a murder ratchet tensions to a boiling point. But Danielle's young son, Simeon, has spotted something strange underwater-beautiful, shifting lights in the dark water below.
In this watery world where everyone's secrets will eventually come to light, salvation may mean more than just getting out alive.
Another stunning exploration of the human spirit and supernatural possibilities from best-selling author Erin Healy.

My Review:
 
I thought this was an interesting book with an unique plot line that did not disappoint. The characters were believable and well developed. The plot was well written and drew me in and held my attention throughout the book. It is one of those books that when you finish you close it and are still thinking. I think the ending fit the story. I had hoped some of the characters would make better choices but the world is not perfect and does not tie up in nice neat bows. The spiritual/supernatural element was well done and I could not wait to see what happened next. If you like something a little different then you will love this author's books.
