Overview

Rogue Wave by Boyd Morrison

This book was previously published as The Palmyra Impact.

A minor seismic disturbance in a remote section of the Pacific causes barely a ripple of concern for Kai Tanaka, acting director of the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Honolulu. But when an airliner en route from L.A. to Sydney vanishes in the same location, Kai is the first to realize that a mysterious explosion has unleashed a series of massive waves destined to obliterate Hawaii. In just one hour, Kai will lose all he has ever known—including his wife and daughter— unless he can save them from nature’s most destructive force.

Rogue Wave had me at the first page. Boyd Morrison doesn't fail in bringing this "edge of your seat" suspense thriller that will keep you spellbound to the very end. You'll be drawn in from page one with his very believable characters that will leave you with a lasting impression of their lives and their determination to live. In Rogue Wave Morrison has done his research and displays a true setting for a very real tsunami disaster that makes you think "it's not if, it's when." Rogue Wave will bring to mind just how tragic the December 2004 tsunami really was and how it affected everyone across the globe.

I found this story thrilling from the first chapter. I hadn't read any books by Mr. Morrison prior to Rogue Wave but I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It's not too technical and doesn't go deep into character backrounds but keeps up the pace of the action very well. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thriller/disaster stories.

Wow! This book grabs you from the beginning and takes you on a mile a minute wild ride. Characters to cheer for, enough disaster for the apolcalyse crowd, and everything backed by scientific truth. This was one of those heart stopping books that not only was well written, but hard to put down once you started reading. A mega wave is rushing toward Hawaii at 1200 miles an hour...what would you do...where would you go...and how fast can you run. I may be re-thinking a trip to the islands anytime soon. This definitely is NOT a beach read book! Jp

Honestly did not even finish it. One of those books, where I did not care what happened to the characters. Going to try his new series. Have not given up on him.

I think the author tried too hard to make this into a gripping, heart stopping, nail biting novel. The plot was action packed and thick with danger, in fact it was so fast paced that I felt it swirling right past me. I wanted to stop the pace and enjoy the story a little more. It started out at an even pace with fairly good character definition, but once it picked up pace, I barely had time to absorb one castastrope before the next one. At times I had to turn back pages to re-read so that I could understand what had just happened. This just isn't the style of writing that I like. I like smooth and flowing sentences. I felt that despite all the drama and the hecticness of the events, the author could acheived this.
