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.
I've read all of Erin's books she has written, and this one is her best yet. There is suspense, sabotage, natural disaster, supernatural elements, good guys, and bad guys. I had read the description of the book and thought it sounded OK, but found the book much more interesting than I had expected from reading the description.
There is a lot going on in the story and some of the people have hidden agendas and secrets. Erin did an excellent job on being descriptive, and didn't cut corners on setting scenes for the reader. She did such a good job, I had no problem seeing the scenes in my mind, which made reading it all the more interesting.
I enjoyed the book a lot, and found it an interesting and easy read.
