Sometimes legends aren’t just stories, they live and walk among us. Washburn’s debut novel follows the path of one native Hawaiian family as they discover what it means to inherit a legend, and live with that inheritance. I fell in love with this family: the mother, Malia, with her lyrical voice and her deep connection to the islands, Dean, the brash older brother who constantly surprised me, Kaui, the younger sister, who shines brilliant and badass, and Nainoa, the legend himself, whose story rings as beautiful as any song on the ‘ukulele. No one makes you cry or laugh as hard as family can, and this family with its sharp edges and deep wells of love touched me so. This book is for anyone who wants to do their parents and people proud, who loved and lost, and for those who never stop seeking to find it again and again.

Sharks in the Time of Saviors is one of the best pieces of contemporary fiction I’ve had the pleasure to read. The fact that the book takes place in Hawaii makes it even more special. The author provides the reader with a unique ‘chicken skin’ experience. The book captures contemporary Hawaii’s history over the past 20+ years, including the socioeconomics of race and being Hawaiian, income disparity, housing issues, family issues, and the diaspora that affects so many families in Hawaii who are unable or unwilling to deal with the cost of living. Truly a master work of art.”
