Barnes & Noble Discover pick for March 2020 Amazon Editors' Pick for March 2020 Sharks in the Time of Saviors is a groundbreaking debut novel that folds the legends of Hawaiian gods into an engrossing family saga; a story of exile and the pursuit of salvation from Kawai Strong Washburn. "Old myths clash with new realities, love is in a ride or die with grief, faith rubs hard against magic, and comic flips with tragic so much they meld into something new. All told with daredevil lyricism to burn. A ferocious debut." --MARLON JAMES, author of Black Leopard, Red Wolf "So good it hurts and hurts to where it heals. It is revelatory and unputdownable. Washburn is an extraordinarily brilliant new talent." --TOMMY ORANGE, author of There There In 1995 Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, on a rare family vacation, seven-year-old Nainoa Flores falls overboard a cruise ship into the Pacific Ocean. When a shiver of sharks appears in the water, everyone fears for the worst. But instead, Noa is gingerly delivered to his mother in the jaws of a shark, marking his story as the stuff of legends. Nainoa's family, struggling amidst the collapse of the sugarcane industry, hails his rescue as a sign of favor from ancient Hawaiian gods--a belief that appears validated after he exhibits puzzling new abilities. But as time passes, this supposed divine favor begins to drive the family apart: Nainoa, working now as a paramedic on the streets of Portland, struggles to fathom the full measure of his expanding abilities; further north in Washington, his older brother Dean hurtles into the world of elite college athletics, obsessed with wealth and fame; while in California, risk-obsessed younger sister Kaui navigates an unforgiving academic workload in an attempt to forge her independence from the family's legacy. When supernatural events revisit the Flores family in Hawai'i--with tragic consequences--they are all forced to reckon with the bonds of family, the meaning of heritage, and the cost of survival.… (mais)

This definitely needs a physical reread. I listened to it on audio while on a long drive and it was very engrossing, but I definitely didn't know what I was getting myself into. Filled with some magical realism elements, but steeped in family pain and history. Amazingly rich with cultural heritage but also confronts the taking of lands and colonization of Hawai'i. Really beautifully written. Heartbreaking. Honest. Hopeful. I should mention I really enjoyed the audiobook and it helped with the vernacular, but I also think this is the type of book worth sitting with and marinating on a little so I would love to physically read it next time.

Received from a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for a review.

While it was beautifully written and certainly touching at places, it’s more like a literary portrait of a family rather than a supernatural story, which I was expecting.

My main problem is that nothing really happens. I’m a fan of Noa’s death late of the book, especially since it kind of ties into the fact that he’d felt lost his whole life, but, like the rest of his life, what effect does it have on his story, his family? It didn’t bring everyone back to Hawaii, there wasn’t really a big discussion mourning his passing (not even his mom, who had chapters of her own to really explore this), So what was the point? It was Kaui who discovers some great thing to... save Hawaii? Save the world? It’s not really clear, because it’s in literally the every end of the book. I guess maybe we were supposed to extrapolate that Noa went into the land and that’s what inspired Kaui’s discovery? I don’t know.

I loved this book. The characters all felt so real and raw and flawed believable. The family tensions all rank true, and I liked how each character had their own arc and their own fate. The magical realism was very well handled. It never felt "unbelievable" to me. I loved the hula scene near the end, the attempted resurrection of the owl, and especially the first pages with the Night Marchers. Those pages grabbed me and the rest didn't let go.

This book reminds me a lot of local author Chris McKinney's The Tattoo which is worth grabbing sometime if this slice of Hawaii is something you want more of. It has no magical realism to speak of, just real realism :) ( )

Noa is haunted by the suffering of the islands, especially the animals, and all the while he’s bursting with visions of the strings that tie reality together backstage. It sounds far out, but much like J.D. Salinger’s “Franny and Zooey,” it’s the ordinariness of the characters’ fears and desires that makes their spiritual connections believable and makes you cheer and weep for them.

From its opening pages, this debut novel juxtaposes the realities of life for a working-class Hawaiian family and the mysticism of the Native culture that shapes them, with surprising results.
