Review: Enclave








It’s been 50 years since the Great Crash and what was once America is now a collection of enclaves, governed on the local level and only loosely tied together by the farce of a federal government. Catawba, one of the largest and most affluent enclaves in the southern states, is relatively stable and maintains a successful business of trade with nearby enclaves, including the one at Charlotte Township. But when a new vein of gold is found beneath the feet of those in Catawba, it’s only a matter of time before trouble finds them.

Now the future of Catawba may be in the hands of an untried 21-year-old trader named Caleb. And Caleb knows that if his secret were ever to come out, he would never see another dawn.

Rating: 4-stars


Enclave by Thomas Locke is an entertaining read. Once halfway through it, I was excited. The plot felt alive. However, the beginning left me with so many questions. I wasn’t sure why or how the book started out the way it did. It wasn’t until later, the stuff finally made sense. I enjoyed the characters, especially Caleb. He’s the main guy. But he’s got this personality and way that dragged me further into his story. This novel is mostly a dystopian read. It was engaging once I got to met the cast of characters. Overall, Enclave is a must read.
