Afloat by 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
It's kinda hard to really give words to my thoughts about this book but here goes! The storyline was definitely unique and interesting. The beginning was rather slow and I had a hard time getting into the story but as it progressed it got better.  There were quite a few twists and turns along the way most of which I didn't see coming. The characters were insanely diverse and they were well written. Vance was by far my favorite, I loved how he was always trying to do what was best for everyone with little to no thought to himself. Overall it was intriguing read but not one that I think I'll read again.
