I know a lot of about the mythology where I grew up and my adopted home land. However, I don’t know anything about the myths and the gods of Hawaii. I was really excited to read Fire in the Ocean.
Summary: Sierra and her friends come face to face with Hawaiian gods and deal with an ecological disaster waiting to happen.
What I liked: As I didn’t know a lot about any mythology I enjoyed learning about some of the mythology and gods of Hawaii. There were some interesting aspects of the story. Keenan’s writing is very good and the characters are well fleshed out. The cover of the novel is stunning.
What I didn’t like: The plot for me was really slow. The synopsis of the book made me think that it was going to be faster paced then the story actually was. I didn’t particularly enjoy the story.
Star Rating: 4
My thoughts: Even though I didn’t particularly care for the story line and the pace of the story, Fire in the Ocean was well written and the characters are well fleshed out.
I would like to thank NetGalley and Diversion Publishing for sending me a review copy of Fire in the Ocean.
