Reviews

An "eye-opening chronicle of the Hawaiian Kingdom..."

--Publishers Weekly

"Skillfully written and consistently entertaining, 'Once There Was Fire' is an extraordinary work of literature, a compelling read from beginning to end ..."

--Midwest Book 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

"The descriptions of phenomenal storytellers, feast makers, drinking contests, blood bonds, sacrifices of prisoners, polygamous relationships, remarkable physical prowess in sport and war, military strategies that guarantee success or failure, and so much more fill these pages into what one can only call a mesmerizing saga."

--Historical Novel Society
