Afloat, by Erin Healy, was a hard book for me to get into. While I did read the entire book, I never connected with the characters and therefore, didn't care about them or the story. They never came alive for me, plus there were a lot of different characters to keep up with, I sometimes got them confused for each other.
I've enjoyed this author's other books so I will continue to seek out her works, this one though fell short for me.
The premise is, there are a group of buildings being constructed and something goes wrong on the worksite, leaving one building in jeopardy. One by one, characters die or are injured. There is no contact with the outside world and the characters know that there is something seriously wrong, not just in their building, but in the entire land.
With some help from "helpers" only seen by a few, the building stays afloat.
