Lance Morcanabout this book: Fiji: A Novel (The World Duology, #2) takes off where book one in the duology finishes – in the South Pacific isles of Fiji.
In writing this novel we were able to draw on our familiarity with this island paradise. One of us (Lance) has visited Fiji several times on business and on holiday, and each visit made an impact for it must surely be one of the most picturesque and exotic destinations on earth.
Hopefully, the end result of our personal experiences in Fiji adds to the authenticity of the novel.
Not for the faint-hearted, this tale is set in the early 1800's at a time when Fijians were truly savage and cannibalism was rife. We describe this phenomenon in some detail. As one old timer once famously said, "The Fijian can be your best friend or your worst enemy."
Although heavy on action and adventure, the novel is also a compeling love story with a poignant romance tempering the violence depicted throughout. More than one reviewer refers to this.
The Kindle Book Review UK calls Fiji "A fantastic combination of romance and action."
In its review, Historical Novel Review describes Fiji as "A fabulous novel, beautiful for its blunt rawness, exotic scenery, and fascinating storyline."
And historical novelist John R. Lindermuth, in his review, says it's "Reminiscent of the great South Pacific tales of Jack London and James Michener."
