Rogue Wave by Boyd Morrison


This one will wash you away with excitement

5 out of 5 stars

My first Morrison book and boy did I read this one in a hurry. I bought it on a whim shortly after the tsunami destroyed most of Japan–but not because of that–it just sounded like it had a great storyline. And I was dead on.

Set in Hawaii and following a researcher who works for NOAA — a great tsunami is headed towards Hawaii… and there isn’t much time to evacuate, and even the ones that do may not make it.

Another book that felt more like a novella or short story with the length, details and great character interaction that you would want.




This book was previously published as The Palmyra Impact. Also published as THE TSUNAMI COUNTDOWN.

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.


I’ve loved reading since I was little when my dad would read me Dr. Suess books. Fast-forward a little and I noticed that he was always reading on his lunch breaks at work, and I wondered why.Then, I found a book that took me to another place and time, to another feeling,another sense of “being”.It was the first book that I ever fell in love with, and I’ve been chasing that feeling ever since.
