After the Order falls, Carya and Brantley barely have time to rest. Their island of Meriel has floated within sight of a new island that might hold vital supplies. When they explore this new world, Carya confronts a whole society of willful disbelief and must learn true faith. In Forsaken Island, book 2 of the Dancing Realms series, author Sharon Hinck skillfully dances through competing storylines of witnessing, spiritual doubts, coping with a life-altering disability, and exploring a new world. Forsaken Island pirouettes to a satisfying conclusion of all story movements.
Best for: Teen and adult fans of light fantasy with a dash of romance, anyone who loves dance.
Discern: Some briefly described violence, one person has a crisis of faith.
