The Enclave by Karen Hancock

Welcome to a world of an underground enclave full of people who don't realize that the world they know isn't one built on truth. The Enclave by Karen Hancock delves into scientists who build themselves as gods and one man stands in their way. Full of twists and turns, The Enclave, provides a suspense packed read that is fast moving and keeps your attention from the first page.

Lacey McHenry accepts a dream job at a world known Kendall-Jakes Longevity Institute, escaping her past or so she believes. Cover-ups, a strange intruder and late night encounters Lacey realizes that all is not as bright and legitimate as she once thought. A co-worker who also works at K-J as one of the top researchers and also is trying to escape his past becomes entangled with a plot larger than he. Struggling to find who they can trust, not knowing if they can trust each other, they must rely on God.

This is the first time I've read Karen Hancock and am glad that I had the opportunity to do so through Bethany House's blogger review program. She has written a wonderful book that focuses on God's will for His people even while showing the side that Satan wants us to believe - cloning and murder are okay. Full of plot twists even the reader will find themselves trying to figure out who Lacey should trust, her boss or fellow Believer, Cameron. This is a read that will keep you up at night and you will be pleased that you did. There is no explicit romance scenes - two kisses are exchanged - so this makes for an enjoyable read and one that can be safely called Christian.

Learn to Study The Bible said...

My name is Marie and I am working with Pastor Andy Deane who recently wrote the book: Learn to Study the Bible – it teaches 40 Bible study methods. We would love to send you a free copy to see if you would review it on your site. Recently we’ve received some exciting endorsements from Dr. Catt (pastor of church that produced the movie FIREPROOF) and Pastor Bob Coy (9th Largest church in USA). If you are able to blog about this new Bible study book please let me know if an internet ebook version would be possible for you to read (saves us money to do that).
