Rating: ★★★★½ (4.5 out of 5 stars)
Lieutenant Connor Bradshaw is a naval aviator fighting a worldwide war in the year 2025. On a mission to secure much-needed water, a malfunction causes Connor’s plane to crash into a mysterious, hidden place called the Land. Lydia Colburn has lived a relatively peaceful life in the Land as a physician, with the exception of her mother’s death and a man who won’t stop following her around. When she spots a man falling from the sky, she rushes to his side despite her fear and confusion. This event leaves Lydia wondering what the consequences of Connor’s arrival will be for her Land, which has remained undisturbed for seven generations—and Connor wondering how he will possibly make it back to his world. Soon Lydia and Connor realize they are attracted to each other and Connor would do anything to protect her…both from the war outside and an escalating stalker right in her village.
I was immediately intrigued when I first read the synopsis for this novel. Suspense, romance, mystery, intrigue, world war, mysterious lands…everything about this book sounded compelling and that is exactly what it was! Though confused at first by the strange Land, I soon realized that the strangeness and mystery were essential to the story. Unwrapping clues little by little in order to uncover the big picture made this book all the more intriguing as well as engaging. The characters were authentic and true souls, making me want to know as much about them as I could. I especially loved Lydia’s protective, kind family. I’m not one to spoil endings, but I will say that this one left me curiously surprised…and wanting more!
If you enjoy intriguing suspenseful romances, The Land Uncharted is for you! I highly recommend to anyone looking for something both fresh and interesting. Keely Brooke Keith is an author to watch out for and I am eagerly anticipating book two in the series, Uncharted Redemption, coming February 2015.
