Publisher's Summary

In this fast-paced survival story set in Hawaii, electronics fail worldwide, the islands become completely isolated, and a strange starscape fills the sky. Leilani and her father embark on a nightmare odyssey from Oahu to their home on the Big Island. Leilani's epilepsy holds a clue to the disaster, if only they can survive as the islands revert to earlier ways.
A powerful story enriched by fascinating elements of Hawaiian ecology, culture, and warfare, this captivating and dramatic debut from Austin Aslan is the first of two novels.

Sometimes less is more

i can't say this book lacks imagination, on the contrary its way too much to handle sometimes: too much narrative, too many musings on spiritual or cultural topics. In some ways it's a pity because I love old myths and indigenous stories, as well a book that's rich in spirituality. Yet this author drowns the reader with an excess of these elements. It's a book I wish I could enjoy more, it had so many great moments,but right now I can't remember a single one, as they're all hidden among all the useless details that an editor should had cut off.

Good to the end

What did you love best about The Islands at the End of the World?

This book is probably written for the young teenaged reader, but it caught me from the beginning and held my interest to the end. It was suspenseful yet not as violent as most apocalyptic stories. Even believable with a different twist. I recommend it for the cosy mystery reader with a science fiction interest.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Islands at the End of the World?

I don't want to spoil the mystery.

Have you listened to any of Allyson Ryan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is the first narration i have listened to of Ms Ryan's and I think she did a fine job.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It kept me on the edge of my seat.
