I love Deb Bokur! Kali Mahoe is one of my favorite fictional detectives. Deb's rich character development really makes Kali come alive on the page. These stories weave together a tapestry of history, culture and mysticism! Kali is a Kahu, a Hawaiian spiritual leader, which gives her a unique perspective into the crimes of the island. Things strange and mysterious happen and her deep knowledge of folklore and island traditions ultimately help her in her detective work.

Published: DAW - April 7th, 2009

This is my favorite book, EVER. I also don't reread too often, but I have read this book several times, each time catching something that I missed. Rothfuss's storytelling is masterful, which is evident when reading the first paragraph of the prologue.
