Book Review - Tsunami Blue

Tsunami Blue by Gayle Ann Williams


Quilly wrote a review of this book a while back.

It is a first book by Gayle Ann Williams and it won the Dorchester Publishing Award. It is also the first book in an upcoming series, the second book of which has been sold and due out in March 2011.

This was another fast paced read with another very unique heroine. Set in the not-so-distant future, the world has changed due to climatic upheaval. With a unique gift and survivalist training, Tsunami Blue tries to make the world safer for others despite their hatred and fear of her.

I was very impressed by the quality of the story, characters and writing. I am very happy I can look forward to more by this author.

From the website:


With her badass rain boots, her faithful dog, and the ability to predict the monster tsunamis that have reduced the US to a series of islands, Kathryn O’Malley isn’t afraid of much. Cut off from all society, she takes to the airwaves as Tsunami Blue, hoping to save something of humanity as the world around her crumbles. But Blue should be afraid—because her message reaches the wrong ears.

Now she’s the target of ruthless pirates known as Runners who want to use her special talents for their own profiteering—as soon as they can find her. Blue’s only shot at survival lies with the naked stranger who washes up on her rocky beach. A man who might just be working for Runners himself. Torn between suspicion and attraction, the two will have to navigate a surging tide of danger and deceit if they hope to stay alive.

I give this book 4 out of 5 butterflies because the ending is a tad lukewarm.

I quite enjoyed the book, and not just because I live where it is set.

Like you, I felt the end needed more "umph". I felt like the story dissolved rather than ended, but I still think it was a great first book and it did have some very interesting characters!
