The Land faces even more danger... You really can't go wrong with the Uncharted Series. They are the best of two genres, dystopian novels written like historicals. The marriage of two such disparate genres proves this young author's talent. And both elements serve to interest readers even further. Keely Brooke Keith knows exactly how to hook her readers in and keep them there, anxiously turning the next page. Uncharted Inheritance features Bethany, the youngest Colburn sibling, a sheltered and naïve young woman wanting to stretch her wings. One of the signs of a good author is to engage the emotions of the reader, and mine certainly were with this book. By turns I was frustrated with Bethany for her determined naivety and with the adults around her over-protecting her when I felt they should have have spoken honestly with her about the dangers she faces. I really enjoyed checking in with my favorite character from the Land and finding out what they were doing. I also liked how the author gave some further hints as to how the Land is protected from sight. I had a hard time putting the book down as the Land faces it's greatest danger yet. Keely Brooke Keith has penned a truly enjoyable tale filled with danger, romance, and set in an exotic location. Uncharted Inheritance, and the rest of the series, are a must read, whether you love dystopian or historical novels. (I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for my review.

This book delivered all the intrigue and romance I’ve come to expect and enjoy from the Uncharted series. I was happy to return to The Land and its friendly inhabitants and follow Bethany through her growing pains to finding her true love. Uncharted Inheritance is mysterious and magnetic. Readers will inevitably be drawn to its unique world. There were some fresh twists I had not expected. The outsider coming to the hidden land added a lot to the story. Not to mention it created quite the triangle as Bethany finds herself torn between her faithful friend and the intriguing stranger. I couldn’t quite guess the ending. I will say I found myself frustrated with a few characters and their actions at certain moments. Do you ever get exasperated with fictional people? Please tell me I’m not the only one! ;) Some parts were a bit predictable to me and the ending felt a little drawn out, but otherwise it was enjoyable from start to finish. I do want to mention that it’s not really a “stand-alone” book. You’ll appreciate the story a whole lot more if you’ve read the first two in the series. They build well upon each other. I’m very curious what’s still to come. There were definite hints of something more. I’m a fan of this series. It’s fun. It’s fresh. And it’s memorable. Thank you to the author for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
This is Book 3 in the series and each story builds upon the next. Each book focuses on a different family member of the Overseer's family, but they are connected together and a reader will be lost starting with this one. Bethany is a very curious soul, yet she has been so sheltered and protected her whole life, living in an undetected land and being the youngest in the family. When a mysterious man arrives in her village, she can't help but be intrigued by him and what he represents. Justin has been searching for this land for three years--ever since his companion's parachute floated towards it. I can't help but be fascinated by this land and the inhabitants who live there. The way the atmosphere works is so gripping and sparked a lot vivid imagery in my mind. Ms. Keith has done a fantastic job of creating a place that is hidden from the rest of the war torn world. The characters are very well written and their personalities come to life on the pages. Bethany is a sensitive woman and is torn between doing what's right and what she feels she needs to do and I could feel her inner struggles. The traditions of Good Springs are quaint, yet necessary for this way of life. The story doesn't really end on a cliff-hanger, but leaves the door open for more of this unique place and I can't wait! Content: no language; mild romance (kiss, mild innuendo); mild violence (sparring, illness/deaths); no religious elements (it seems like it should be religious, due to their way of life, but it wasn't). Clean! *I received a copy in exchange for an honest review*
