***2020 Christy Award Winner, Visionary*** The dancers of the Order direct their floating world of Meriel with their movements, but are they steering it toward destruction? Calara spent her life learning dance patterns and seeking to become the perfect servant to her people. When she discovers the work of the Order is built on lies, she flees with a rough-edged herder, Brantley of Windswell. Pursued by soldiers, her journey through the suffering villages of the rim leads her to a forgotten truth that sends ripples through her world-and through her soul. Calara seeks clues to her forgotten family and discovers newfound courage in the face of danger, while her quest awakens a growing but forbidden affection for Brantley. Yet even his support can't fully be trusted, since he'd rather destroy the Order than bring reform. She is a lone woman facing opposition from rim villages and treachery from the all-powerful Order. Can she restore the dance to its true purpose and bring freedom and hope to her people?

Review quote

"Hinck's intertwining of Christian theology and fantasy renders a thought-provoking tale, and readers will be challenged to question their convictions. Recommended." --School Library Journal "Both fantastical and a commentary on blind faith, Sharon Hinck's exquisite Hidden Current kick-starts a magical new series centered around the power of dance and staying true to yourself." --Foreword Reviews, January/February 2020 "Sharon Hinck's fantasy dances to the rhythm of our Creator's heart... the story moves well to the rhythm of an organic and necessary theme: the ultimate purpose of creative gifts, in a world that's guided not by human movers in a disordered Order, but by a divine and prime Mover." - --Lorehaven Magazine, Fall 2019
"Sharon Hinck has outdone herself with this tale of reclaimed mystery and redemption. As a dancer myself, I loved the rhythm and lyricism of Hinck's masterful prose and the perilous quest of her protagonist to learn Truth. Hidden Current dances on the page." --Tosca Lee, New York Times best-selling author. "Sharon Hinck's writing has a way of transporting readers to spectacular new worlds while, at the same time, connecting to the heart of reality. Her books deliver escape and relevance, adventure and compassion, questions and answers--all in the midst of clever, character-driven storytelling. I wholeheartedly recommend The Dancing Realms series." --Wayne Thomas Batson, best-selling author of The Door Within trilogy and The Myridian Constellation "Rhythm and dance can move a world, and Hidden Current shows how it might be done. A lovely story, told through the eyes of a character who must find her true strength in faithful, trusting service. Hidden Current combines a creative, sympathetic interweaving of the dancer's art with intriguing worldbuilding and a strong faith element. Well done, Sharon Hinck." --Kathy Tyers, author of the Firebird series "Sharon Hinck's Hidden Current is absolutely beautiful! I was instantly drawn in by her intriguing island world held in place by dancers. This story is one of discovery, truth, and a lovely, fresh allegory that will touch readers' hearts. If you enjoy Christian young adult fantasy novels with danger, adventure, and a hint of romance, you're going to love it!" --Jill Williamson, Christy Award-winning author of the Blood of Kings trilogy and the Kinsman Chronicles "Hidden Current made me want to leap up and dance with joy. The characters, setting, and creatures were exquisite, and the Maker touched my heart. One of the most beautiful stories I've ever read." --Morgan L. Busse, award-winning author of The Ravenwood Saga "Mystery. Danger. An intriguing world unlike any you've been to before. What's not to love about a story like that? In Hidden Current, you'll find all that and so much more! These characters are some of author Sharon Hinck's best ever in a story that will live in your heart long after you've read the last page." --Michelle Griep, Christy Award-winning author of the Once Upon a Dickens Christmas series "A fanciful world, endearing characters, insidious evil... Hidden Current swirls together high adventure with spiritual truth in an elegant dance set to the heartbeat of the Maker's love for every creature under His care. Truly a beautiful story worth savoring over and over again." --Chawna Schroeder, author of Beast
