The author really seems to understand how an animal might think, and uses that understanding to create a very believable story of how Keiki participated in a traumatic sequence of events in Lei's and Michael's lives. I thought Emily put quite a bit of thought into how a Rottweiler in particular would view the world, as well as how Blue, Keiki's bloodhound companion, and the Plover would view the world. These perspectives were utterly fascinating. The plot was very well-written and absorbing, and I kept having to slow my reading pace because I burned through this novella in no time flat. And I loved the story so much, I cried at the end not just because the ending was touching, but because the story was over.
I would like more, please, Emily!
Note: This book takes place further into the Lei Crime Series and therefore contains spoilers if you have not read up to Fire Beach.
This novella is about Lei and Michael's house burning down and Keiki's part in trying to warn and protect those she loves the most. She does everything she can to find the bad guy and have him 'taken care of' in a really surprising way. Emily has introduced a new character, as many of the writers for the Lei Crime Series KW have, and named him Blue. I love the little part that Esther has in this story (Those of you who have read most of Toby Neal's books will know who this is) What a GREAT addition to the series! I adore all these side stories. While most of the novellas could stand alone, they add SO much more to Lei's world. I've read quite a few of the KW novellas, but this one is probably in my top 4-5. Way to go, Ms. Kimelman!
(Only one little, teeny, tiny negative comment: We know Keiki is a girl, so who is the model for your cover? :) )
- Very well-written; told from an endearing perspective.
- Unique perspective – It’s a 3rd person narrator but the entire focus is on Keiki.
- Some of the dialogue is a little stiff but I think that’s purposefully done as a perspective and “dog culture” type thing.
- Spoilers if you’ve not actually read Fire Beach.
- One of the most humorous entries of the original 8 Lei Crime Series KW entries.
Conclusion: Recommended for dog lovers and people who enjoy stories told from unique perspectives. (Reminds me a little of what Ender’s Shadow did for Ender’s Game.)
