July CSFF Blog Tour: The Enclave: Day Two

When Science Tries to Play God, Can One Man
Summon the Courage to Stand in Its Way?

When Lacey McHenry
accepts a prestigious research fellowship at the world-renowned Kendall-Jakes Longevity Institute, she sees it as a new start on life. But when a disturbing late-night encounter with a bizarre intruder leads to a cover-up by Institute authorities, she soon realizes all isn’t as it seems.

Caught in an elaborate game of deception and seduction, her only ally seems to be the brilliant but absent-minded geneticist, Cameron Reinhardt. A favorite of the Institute’s charismatic director, Cameron, too,came to K-J hoping to escape his past. But the more he learns about Lacey’s attacker, the more he fears that the past still pursues him.

Not certain they can trust each other, Cameron and Lacey reluctantly work together to uncover the shocking secrets that lurk behind the Institute’s respectable fa├žade – secrets that turn out to be bigger, stranger, and far more dangerous than either of them could have imagined.

The Enclave By Karen Hancock, will go down on my favorite list. I highly enjoyed the very original SciFi slightly fantasy book. Karen Hancock, is an incredibly talented writer. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading any of her books before, but next time I’m at the local Christian book store I’m defiantly grabbing book one of “Legends of the Guardian King.” The thing I liked the most about “The Enclave,” were the Characters, they had so many different layers to them.

Though I loved this book I wouldn’t recommend it to just anyone without warning them of a few things.
One: This book for sure isn’t a book for children. It doesn’t have any curse words in it, but it does have graphic death images and some sexual undertones that wouldn’t be appropriate to the age under sixteen (In my opinion).
And Two: I know a lot of us Christians have different opinions of Genesis Six, on the Fallen Angels, it’s not the main part of the book, but does have a big role in it. I know it is a very controversial topic and though this book is fictional and the Nephilim are in Karen Hancock’s view, it could be very disturbing to some Christians and could even make some angry.
I hope this doesn’t stop you from reading this book. Truly it is a beautiful book, I could even read again, but I always appreciate good warnings before I read a book, see a movie, or anything else. I hope you enjoyed my review on The Enclave, by Karen Hancock, until next time go see what the other bloggers for this months tour are saying about it.
