Review

Fascinating . . . Kilworth is a skilled storyteller (STARBURST)

A rich, expansive read (INTERZONE)

'...rich, evocative and lyrical... funny, moving and poignant. Kilworth's evocation of Polynesia culture is a triumph of both research and storytelling. (SFX) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

Kilworth's evocation of Polynesian culture is a triumph of both research and storytelling. It's a sunny book, full of azure blue skies, white sands, clear seas and vividly depicted characters who you genuinely care about' - SFX --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top Customer Reviews

By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 3 July 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a fantasy set among the Polynesian islanders who travel in handmade rafts across the Pacific Ocean.

Kilworth has looked carefully at how they make tools and war clubs without metalwork - by studding a club with sharks' teeth, say - and at the values and beliefs of the cultures they encounter. Food in general is easy to come by, between breadfruit, fishing and other island foods. Commerce and cultural exchange between islands are important so a travelling troupe of actors, some with tattooed legs to show their importance, moves between the islands, knowing how to navigate by the colour of the sea, the sound of breakers, the smell of plants.

Oh, and you don't want to upset the gods. Definitely not. There are several in the pantheon, and you may encounter witches and monsters on new islands.

The series is The Roof of Voyaging, The Princely Flower, and The Land of Mists. In this fantasy, the island of Britain, inhabited by primitive Picts, replaces New Zealand, and one of the Picts who strangely likes to tame one of the edible dogs, unwillingly joins the travellers on their voyages. The Land Of Mists deals with travel to the Pictish land.
