My rating: 3 of 5 stars
It's been 50 years since the Great Crash and what was once America is now a collection of enclaves, governed on the local level and only loosely tied together by the farce of a federal government. Catawba, one of the largest and most affluent enclaves in the southern states, is relatively stable and maintains a successful business of trade with nearby enclaves, including the one at Charlotte Township. But when a new vein of gold is found beneath the feet of those in Catawba, it's only a matter of time before trouble finds them.
Now the future of Catawba may be in the hands of an untried 21-year-old trader named Caleb. And Caleb knows that if his secret were ever to come out, he would never see another dawn.
Enclave is not from my most go to genre. I did have a hard time in the beginning trying to understand what was going on. After about a quarter of the way through, I caught on and started enjoying what I was reading. In the end, I found it refreshing to read something new, different and unique.
I give Enclave three and a half stars. It is definitely worth the read. I will be looking for more by Thomas Locke in the future.
I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
