Staff Reviews

"A stunning saga that weaves the animism of spirit and ancestor realms into the life of a contemporary Native Hawaiian family. Provides an opening to understand time as spirolic, growth as cyclical, and loss--even death--as less permanent than we may imagine. The language is so lush and each character so full-wrought. This one will stay with you for a long while."--Liza

Sharks in the Time of Saviors is one of the best pieces of contemporary fiction I’ve had the pleasure to read. The fact that the book takes place in Hawaii makes it even more special. The author provides the reader with a unique ‘chicken skin’ experience. The book captures contemporary Hawaii’s history over the past 20+ years, including the socioeconomics of race and being Hawaiian, income disparity, housing issues, family issues, and the diaspora that affects so many families in Hawaii who are unable or unwilling to deal with the cost of living. Truly a master work of art.”
