A creative and intoxicating start to the short story; but considering it is a short story I did expect it to move a little faster than what it did. It was almost setting up with the characters as though it was going into a full length novel, a bit of a back story. Two characters meeting on this exotic island, with these unusual myths and happenings that surround this place.
I enjoyed reading about he legends of the island and the ancient people, a little far-fetched, but enjoyable all the same, almost humorous.
This young man coming onto Kiri Maru with expectations, stumbling into this beautiful native girl. Where is this romance going to lead?
It is a lovely narrative with descriptive wording, enchanting characters and places, and beautiful wildlife. An intoxicating place, an island away from modern life.
Quite a fascinating turn of events as one lustful night changes a man’s life forever. He could never have foreseen what was about to happen and the consequences thereafter.
The unique plot certainly kept me fascinated until the end. Quite an active imagination the author portrays.
A satisfying ending to a lovely tale.
