Dolphin's Cave is a work of fiction in the interpersonal drama, fantasy fiction, and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author D. L. Finn. The work fits best with the older end of the middle-grade age range and the younger part of the young adult bracket but can be enjoyed by any young at heart reader looking for a touching coming of age tale with plenty of dreams and secrets to unlock. Protagonist Coral Dover is a fifteen-year-old orphan with peculiar dreams, so when a chance to visit the place where her parents went missing arises, Coral jumps at the chance to investigate the images of the underwater world which plague her every night.
Author D. L. Finn has crafted a gorgeous, emotive, and adventurous work that will tick all of the boxes for MG and YA fiction fans alike. Coral is a realistic character with credible dialogue and a highly engaging and inquisitive personality, which makes her a wonderful empathetic heroine for the plot to revolve around. And what a plot it is, filled with twists and surprises as the journey of discovery snowballs into a fully-fledged adventure tale with dynamic descriptions and cinematic atmospheres to explore. I love the Hawaiian setting and the innovative ways that the fantasy genre comingles with real life, but most of all it’s Coral’s emotional resonance that creates the core of this un-put-down-able read. Overall, I would certainly recommend Dolphin's Cave for anyone seeking a dreamy drama with tons of mystery waiting to be unlocked.
