From the author of The Land Uncharted comes the second book in the Uncharted series, Uncharted Redemption. Written like a historical, set like a scifi, and filled with romance, Uncharted Redemption continues this suspenseful story of life in a hidden land.

Levi Colburn, resentful of his father, haunted by his mother’s tragic death, and pained by his love for the unattainable Mandy Foster, breaks from the Land’s tradition and begins to build a life of his own. When rebels tear through the village of Good Springs, Levi vows to deliver justice and restore the woman he loves. As tradition stands in the way of redemption and threats from the outside world begin to appear, Levi must learn his greatest battles cannot be fought with his fists. Romantic, suspenseful, and filled with adventure, Uncharted Redemption weaves dramatic new layers into life in the Land.



Hey! Here's my review.

This is the second book in the Uncharted series - an amazing blend of historical romance and science fiction. The story is set about ten years in the future during what seems like World War 3. It is set on an inhabited island that is unknown to the modern world, hidden in a place like the Bermuda Triangle. The people have the technology of the late 1700's. 

This book focuses on Levi and Mandy's story. Levi is busy building himself a house on the hill across from Mandy's family home. Mandy spend her time handcrafting violins. Levi has cared for Mandy for years, but she rejected him and now sees herself as unworthy.

When Mandy is abducted by the same rebel family who killed Levi's mother, Levi comes to her rescue. Though Levi and Mandy both care for each other, fear of rejection keep them both from telling the other how they feel. 

I loved the concept of the grey leaf tree, whose leaves had amazing healing properties and wood far superior to other timber. This story ended with a similar teaser to book 1, and now I can't wait to read book 3!

I listened to the audiobook edition, which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator of book 2 spoke clearly and at a good pace.
