TEXAS CITY, Texas – Inspired by Hawaiian history and culture that D.R. Pollock learned about while living in Hawaii, Pollock’s new historical novel, “Koa Kai: The Story of Zachary Bower and the Conquest of the Hawaiian Islands” (published by Archway Publishing), brings them all together with a mix of adventure, romance, sadness and joy. In the novel, a boy from New England is unwittingly thrust into the army of Kamehameha and the wars to unite the Hawaiian Islands during the 1790s.
CUSTOMER FIVE STAR REVIEWS:
C.G. “An excellent telling of the Story of Zachary Bower & the Conquest of the Hawaiian Islands. Besides the actual characters in Hawaii, the author added the fictional characters Zachary Bower and all the Americans. A very interesting way to tell a real story.”
G.G.W. “A well-written account of Hawaiian history with a believable fictional touch!
Koa Kai is an accurate historical drama of the events which occurred in the Hawaiian Islands, with a fictional twist. Pollock injects his extensive nautical knowledge and sailing experience into his main character, Zachary. Throughout the book, Zachary listens, learns and grows in knowledge, experience and character. This book is informative and enjoyable reading! I liked the book!”
SPR FOUR STAR REVIEW:
“There are several aspects to Koa Kai that make Zachary Bower’s tale immensely interesting. The historical aspect naturally has a huge role in the story. However, it’s the series of unexpected events that take Pollock’s main protagonist from a young boy on a backwoods farm to becoming Koa Kai or Sea Warrior, who willingly fights in Kamehameha’s army, that really give the story weight.
The story at the core of Koa Kai is captivating, and the factual details are certainly interesting throughout.”
“In this first novel, Pollock takes his hero from humble beginnings in Colonial America at the end of the 18th century to the Sandwich Islands, where he becomes a warrior in the service of Kamehameha the Great, the founder of the Kingdom of Hawaii.
A zesty…, historical adventure that’s worth a read to witness the love that the author lavishes on his characters and their adventures.”
