Starred Review from Kirkus!

My first industry review has been published. Kirkus Reviews has awarded THE ISLANDS AT THE END OF THE WORLD a star! A distinction primarily notable within the book industry, a starred review is received by less than 1 out of 10 reviewed books! It  helps position the novel closer to the front of bookstores and libraries. Check out the generous review for yourself on the Kirkus website.

My personal favorite quote: “Aslan’s debut honors Hawaii’s unique cultural strengths—family ties and love of home, amplified by geography and history—while remaining true to a genre that affirms the mysterious grandeur of the universe waiting to be discovered.”
