After the Great Crash, the economy was ruined. Enclaves have formed. While local governments have remained fairly strong, the federal government has become a sham. While most people want to live in peace, the governments are causing financial burdens where they can. Now, People with special abilities have surfaced, marked as outcasts, and are being hunted by the government.
In Enclave, Thomas Locke writes an engaging story that not only holds your attention and fires your imagination, it also provides an illustration of people coming together to help others.
The plot is fast paced and makes the book hard to stop reading. Every time I reached the end of a chapter, I wanted to read another one and see what would happen next. The descriptions of characters and places make it easy to imagine what they look like, and help keep that plot understandable.
Both good and bad are exhibited in the book. Some of the people want to further their standing by bringing others down, while many people try to do what is right, even when it is inconvenient or difficult. As the protagonists learn about each other and help each other, they show what it’s like to be selfless and trustworthy.
I like fiction because it stretches my imagination, but when stories provide moral lessons, I think that makes them even better. Enclave is a book that does that, and does it well.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
