Afloat~Book Review~Erin Healy

About the Book:

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 thoughts: 

I reviewed another book by this author in the past and enjoyed it. This one took a little getting into it. At first, I felt like I couldn’t figure out what was going on. A large portion of the book is about the first day of the story…..lots and lots of details about one day….This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I just remember thinking, “What? This is still the 1st day?!”

As I read on, I did get more involved in the story and wanted  to know what happened and how it was going to end.

I’d say this book is a little suspense, a little story, a little supernatural, a little “dark”.
