New Release! Keely Brooke Keith's Uncharted Inheritance

You know the feeling you get when you're completely immersed in a book, caught up tight in the story, not wanting to put it down, and impatient to get back to it when you must? That's the feeling I got when I listened to the first two installments in Keely Brooke Keith's The Uncharted Series. The author kindly gifted me an audiobook version of both The Land Uncharted and Uncharted Redemption for an honest review. The series is a blend of romance, historical fiction, and science fiction written with surprising mastery by this talented new writer. Keely Brooke Keith is an author to watch. Read through to enter the giveaway for a complete ebook collection of The Uncharted Series. 

From the opening pages of The Land Uncharted, narrated by Kate Fisher, I was mesmerized by the story of this undiscovered land and its people locked in a time and way of life from the early part of the last century, and completely out of touch with the rest of the world. Fisher's reading, while slow at times, seems a good fit with the book's formal tone and the characters' old-fashioned speech, although at times it seemed robotic, almost as though Siri was reading the story.

Lydia Colburn is a young physician dedicated to serving her village in the Land. When injured fighter pilot Connor Bradshaw’s parachute carries him from the war engulfing the 2025 world to her hidden land, his presence threatens her plans, her family, and the survival of her preindustrial society. As Connor searches for a way to return to his squadron, his fascination with life in the Land makes him protective of Lydia and her peaceful homeland, and Lydia’s attraction to Connor stirs desires she never anticipated. Written like a historical, set like a sci-fi, and filled with romance, The Land Uncharted weaves adventure and love in this suspenseful story of a hidden land.

In Book Two,  Uncharted Redemption, read by Misty of Echoing Praise, the story continues with suspense, romance, drama, revenge, and redemption. The narrator's performance is engaging and believable, well-paced and natural. 

Description:  Breaking from the Land’s tradition, Levi Colburn begins to build his own house outside the village—across the road from Mandy Foster to be exact. Though he hopes to marry Mandy someday, she rejected him once and has been unattainable to every man in the village ever since. When rebels tear through Good Springs and abduct Mandy, it’s up to Levi to find her. Driven to avoid the hour of hollow discontent that routinely plagues her at sundown, Mandy Foster has made choices she regrets. If anyone found out her secret, tradition dictates she would be shunned. She’s learned how to guard her heart, until she accepts the tender care of the one man who truly loves her. But if she admits her love for him, her secret could be exposed. Romantic, suspenseful, and filled with adventure,  Uncharted Redemption weaves dramatic new layers into life in the Land. 

Now comes the third book in the series,  Uncharted Inheritance for release May 5Like the first two books, this too is written like a historical, set like a sci-fi, and filled with romance. Uncharted Inheritance concludes this suspenseful story of life in a hidden land. 

Description:  Bethany Colburn finally turns eighteen, and Everett Foster is about to confess his love for her. When a new man arrives in the village of Good Springs, he brings charm Bethany has never encountered and illness the Land has never known. While the medicinal power of the gray leaf tree is put to the test, and the Colburn family’s strength is stretched thin, Bethany must learn to protect her true inheritance. Uncharted Inheritance weaves heartbreak and hope while delivering long-awaited answers in this suspenseful story of life in a hidden land.

Uncharted Inheritance is also available as an audiobook.
