The Islands at the End of the World by Austin Aslan: Review

The Islands at the End of the World

This is what you need to read this action-packed book about the survival in the worst case scenario of a father and his brave daughter: a map of Hawaii, a Hawaiian dictionary, some information about  pidgin (Da Kine) and an open mind.

You may also what to give a look at  one of the orchids  painted by Georgia O'Keefe, and read about Hawaiian myths.

Leilani thought that  with her medical condition she had enough on her plate . She didn't expect a world crisis to affect the beautiful islands of Hawaii.She didn't expect either to play a key role in the events .

What I liked most about the book was the connection the main character had with nature and the wonderful relationship with her father . The action was too realistic for me many times. I think the author knew very well what he was writing about when he described what happens in a dying society.  The sci-fi part of the novel was indeed original and nowadays that is a lot to say about a book.

I recommend this book to open-minded sci-fi fans , action lovers who don't mind a certain degree of violence and to people who want to know more about Hawaiian legends .
