This post highlights a book that I am dying to be released!!
THIS WEEK I'M WAITING ON:The Island at the End of the World
By Austin Aslan
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. The author has a master’s degree in tropical conservation biology from the University of Hawaii at Hilo.
RELEASE DATE: August 5th, 2014
Why I'm waiting: I'm really in the mood to read something about Hawaii and this book sounds so interesting. Definitely can't wait for this one's release!
