Forsaken Island

Enclave. (Dancing Realms, Bk. 2). Sept. 2020. 288p. ISBN 9781621841357. $24.99. CF
Far away from the familiar shores of Meriel, Carya the dancer and Brantley the herder take to the sea to continue their mission to help their home during its time of need. Riding on the back of the faithful dolphin, Navar, the two friends find themselves stranded on a strange island that causes them to question their own perspectives. Filled with foreboding, the mysterious island proves to be dangerous and its inhabitants, with their bizarre self-absorption and lack of compassion, alarm Carya, who learns how their suffering is caused by a loss of understanding of the Maker. Hinck’s (Hidden Current) creative imagery takes readers into a world with a unique view of what it means for something to be evil, and how evil takes hold of innocence. This Christian-inspired story refreshes traditional religious concepts of salvation, forgiveness, and grace.
VERDICT Recommended as an excellent YA crossover, appealing to fans of the Christian genre, fantasy, romance, and adventure.
