This book was ok but didn't "do it" for me. There are others who I know will love it. The premise is great: a group of diverse individuals are sent to investigate the mysterious disappearance approximately 200 years ago of a colony of settlers on New Hope Island. I was distracted by too much time taken up developing the main characters who I still could not connect to, and also the constant switch from past to present with no warning. At times, I had to put the book down and leave it for awhile. I finished it mainly because I was intrigued by the story line. The book is very promising and I just wish that there could be a slight re write to make the book flow more easily.
Three out of Five Stars
