Eagle’s Talon was architect, Vance Nolan’s, baby. Even though he had different ideas for who these upscale, floating apartments would benefit and highly disagreed with the turn Tony Dean, the investor, was taking, he still did his job with excellence. That’s why it was such a shock when some of the buildings gave way and began to sink. Maybe there was an unforeseen sinkhole or maybe someone did it on purpose? It wasn’t clear which. The only clear thing was that the group of survivors needed to work together and trust each other if they were going to survive the tragedy, the impending storm that was to follow, and the unnatural darkness that seemed to engulf them.
Honestly, it took me a while to get through this book. I found it difficult to read, and I got a bit lost in the plot. I also found myself pausing frequently and trying to remember which character went with which name. The last three chapters picked up a bit but not enough to redeem the book for me. There was a good message in there. I just felt it got a bit watered down with an okay plot. I did enjoy seeing how the author showed that God had His hand on them throughout the book and that His love for us is incredible.
Out of 5 stars, I would give Afloat a 3.

I have a geological engineering friend who had a sinkhole open up at one of her landfills. Yikes!
