Afloat – Book Review

Eagle’s Talon is the type of place that most people dream about living: an elite community of floating condominiums that rise forty feet above the waters of a secluded cove. Currently under construction, they are home to a few lucky residents – at least, the residents thought they were lucky until the day the waters rose.

On the day that disaster (or was that sabotage?) strikes, those trapped on the cove must band together and fight for their very survival. The problem is, everyone has competing interests and agendas all their own. Each must make choices that will impact the lives of those around them. Some will discover that past choices made by others have already profoundly altered their lives.

Who can they trust?

What should they believe?

Are there forces at work that defy human understanding?

Afloat by Erin Healy is an intriguing story about disaster and human nature. The book is full of twists and unusual turns. The story explores both the dark and redemptive sides of human nature.

Overall, the book was good. At times, however, I found myself getting overwhelmed by the magnitude of the disaster. I would not classify this as a light read.

Simultaneously, I found myself intrigued by the things that Danielle’s young son, Simeon, saw under the water and by Ziggy, Zeke’s pit bull service dog – the one with an overwhelming fear of the water.

If you like Christian suspense novels that merge the everyday with a touch of the supernatural – check out Afloat.

    I was hooked by the end of the first paragraph. I will put this on my reading list for sure, but I know I won’t read it until after this hurricane season. Our family is still recovering from Sandy, and I don’t think I have nerves of steel to read this without flinching.

      Good idea Kalley! I’m sorry to hear that you were impacted by Sandy. I could not help but think about all of the families that have been struck by disasters as I read this book.

    Read this book and although I am not a big fan of the supernatural, there was just enough for it to be intriging. It was a well written Christian suspense and I too would not classify it as light reading. Great reveiw
