LAVA: A Historical Novel of Haunted Hawaii
A young Portuguese sailor, wrongfully cast into the sea and left for dead, washes ashore on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1780. Jonah Pessoa quickly finds himself enmeshed in the brutal tribal warfare which is engulfing the island. A forbidden love, an ancient prophecy, and his own inner conflict (between belief in the Christian God and belief in the primeval gods of Hawaii) plays out in the troubled life of the orphaned young man, living and fighting amongst a people foreign to him. The cruel slaughter which follows puts an end to the warfare, terminating any hope of a bloodline which might challenge the conquering King Kamehameha...or did it? Never found among the slain bodies was a half-breed child, offspring of Jonah and royal princess Lilena...a bloodline destined the restore the Kingdom of Hawaii in the 21st century.
This historically accurate novel also serves to explain the causes of the paranormal activity which still erupts on the Big Island to this day - from the Royal Heiau at Puu Kohala to the secret caves which pocket the lava strewn coast of the Puna district. The History Channel's television series Haunted History has actually done an expose on this area, one of the most spookiest places on the Big Island.
