I felt so happy, when I finished reading Uncharted Redemption. That’s the way I like to feel, when I finish a good story. It was great to see the characters grow and change during the course of the novel. This book is truly a tale of redemption, forgiveness, and love. Levi, though not the most endearing character at the beginning of this novel, and certainly not in the previous book, grows and matures into a man of compassion and understanding. This is his story, as much as it is Mandy’s. They both are able to confront misconceptions of their youth and overcome them with the help of friends, family, and each other. Although this book can be read without reading the first book in the series, I think the reader will have a better understanding of the parallel plot line, if she reads The Land Uncharted first. The majority of this book reads like a historic novel, though a small part takes place in a futuristic society, which might be confusing to someone who hasn’t read the previous novel. On the other hand, the historic story can almost stand on its own. However, it is the science fiction angle that adds depth and angst to the novel. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good romance woven into a story of family, mystery, and intrigue. I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for my honest review.

Return once again to the past and the future I am once again amazed at Keely Keith's ability to seamlessly join historical fiction with futuristic fiction. The characters speech and even the author's writing style hearkens back to the days of the classics and yet the futuristic feel is still very present. I fell in love with the Colburn family in The Land Uncharted and I really looked forward to reading more about them. I was glad that Keely Keith took up the story of Levi and Mandy. I took a liking to Mandy in the first book and I enjoyed learning more about her and what made her tick. The same thing went with Levi, he has broken somewhat with tradition but is he really that different? Suspense and romance set against the backdrop of a land once unspoiled. But darkness gathers from afar, and even more frighteningly, from within. That is one of the most fascinating parts of Uncharted Redemption, the peaceful people of the land versus the violence thrust upon them. Each character must grapple with where to make a stand and how to balance the need for peace and having to protect that peace by force. This causes dissension between family members and even resentment but when the chips are down love of family and God are what really matters. The themes of forgiveness and redemption are strong in Uncharted Redemption. And through the characters in the story I was reminded of how God has redeemed us, He has forgiven us of things we don't think are forgivable. If you can't decide between a historical or a futuristic tale Uncharted Redemption will fit the bill perfectly. Keely Keith has a wonderful writing style and a great series going, I eagerly look forward to reading book three and any further stories she writes.

Levi Colburn is a bitter young man- he’s angry at his father for failing to protect his mother when she was murdered and angry at himself for being in love with Mandy Foster, a woman who rejected him years prior. With a heavy yet determined heart, he decides to break away from Land tradition and build his own house separate from his family. His entire world is shaken once again when the same men who murdered his mother ride into town and kidnap Mandy. Levi, along with his brother-in-law Connor, race after them and vow to deliver justice no matter what the cost. But will his desire for vengeance cloud his judgment? And will the Land be protected from outside forces trying to find their way in? “It seems we all have reasons to be bitter, but since we have life before us, we also have a reason to let it go.” (page 209) The Land Uncharted’s ending had me curiously anticipating this second novel in the Uncharted series. Though it started off a little slow (probably because I had forgotten a lot from the first book and it’s probably better to read these one after the other), don’t give up on it because Uncharted Redemption has a meaningful message, adventure and action, romance and imagination. I really enjoyed it! Something that has always intrigued me about these books is the setting. The Land is a curious place, and it’s one of those things that pulls you in with the mystery of it all. Parts of the story focused on Mercer, Connor's old friend, and his mission to find the Land. Though some information is uncovered here, I suspect there will be even more revealed in the next book. The romance was another highlight- Levi and Mandy’s interactions made me smile. I was really happy the conclusion wasn’t too drawn out, everything happened in perfect sequence. The third person point of view isn’t my favorite, but in this case it didn’t bother me much. Perhaps the best part of this book (for me) was the adventure! Things got really interesting with kidnapping, murder, and fistfights. I was also really happy to “touch base” with Connor and Lydia from book one- they were still as cute as ever. Uncharted Redemption was an intriguing, mysterious sequel filled with romance, adventure, and suspense. If you enjoy stories that are a break from the norm, then you should check out the Uncharted series! **I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. My sincerest apologies for the delay in reviewing.

In this second installment of The Uncharted Series, I was eager to return to the mysterious land where history and sci-fi collide. This intriguing world has a lot to offer and I get the feeling we’ve barely scratched the surface. The story isn’t over yet! ;) I was glad to reconnect with the characters from the first book and follow Levi this time in his pursuit of happiness. The obstacles in his way are exciting and believable, and I appreciated how his character grew, as did Mandy’s. The setting, once again, felt real and the people in it just like you and me. And yet, there is a certain mystery and intrigue that hovers over the story, making it all seem almost dream-like. Fiction is awesome like that! ;) I did wish there were a few more surprises and twists in the story. At times I could sense what was coming. I was easily drawn into the book, hear me say, and I read through it quickly, but in some ways it felt like it was setting the stage for the rest still to come. It laid the groundwork well, but I was left wanting a bit more in these pages. I would highly recommend readers start with the first book in the series, The Land Uncharted, so you’ll be familiar with the land itself and the characters. The plot picks up nicely in the second book and continues on point. Uncharted Redemption is a captivating tale of redeeming love and forgiveness. It’s unique and adventurous. Readers better prepare to get lost in it. ;) Thank you to Keely Brooke Keith for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
