Editorial Reviews

Review

"Overall, this novel should gratify historians and general readers alike....A thoughtful, well-written work that breathes new life into past personalities and events."
-- Kirkus Reviews
"What makes this historical novel impressive is its author's feel for his epic subject matter, and his ability to tell the story so lyrically, with a Hawaiian lilt to the language. His Kamehameha resembles larger-than-life Western literary figures, from the classical myths of antiquity through King Arthur to Shakespeare in this page turner that vividly paints a way of life worlds apart from the one we now know on Hawaii's shores."
-- Rick Chatenever, Maui News
"A bold and stirring historical novel .... entertaining with confident pacing and compelling characters ...  it's clear from the start that Shender has an innate talent for storytelling whilst his character portraits are quite simply captivating as he transports his readers to an altogether different age." 
-- Book Viral
 "Shender does a wonderful job of bringing the rich and complicated history of Hawaii to the reader in the simplest, eloquent and most splendid way. The descriptions of the scenery and the imagery were so real that you could almost taste the salt of the ocean."
-- Readers' Favorite
