    1. Tom Watson

      Daughter of the Reef is a book after my own heart!The main character struggles again society and her own heart as she is torn left and right through this twist and turn tropical story. Rich detail, powerful character development, and a complex non-linear story bring ancient Tahiti to life!The book takes place in the unspoiled times before Polynesia was discovered and despoiled by western explorers. Extreme detail was placed into each page to bring this love story and complex coming of age tale a [...]

      I read this at least once a year(the trilogy). I've been reading it since I was 19. I'm from Fiji and it's a rare find when you come across rich ancestral stories from the South Pacific and better yet it's steeped in politics, romance, survival and culture. Tepua's character in so special you begin this journey with her and watch her evolve to survive and it's such a treat. Clare Coleman is amazeballs

      A not-especially-interesting protagonist, and two very different but both unlikeable men for love interests. Skip it.

      As a child, I read a Reader's Digest condensed book form of chapter 2 of James A. Michener's book Hawaii, in which some 7th-century inhabitants of Bora Bora leave by canoe for Hawaii to start a new life. It was a fascinating, absorbing read, wherein I identified with multiple characters and rooted for the journey's success. The impression it made still remains. From the description of Daughter of the Reef, it seemed I had found a similar book or series. This turned out not to be the case.World-b [...]

      It is a good read.Predictability was the only reason it did not get five stars. The reason it got the four stars is for its interesting history of Tahitian Culture given in a pleasing story line. I would recommend for teens and up. Now, I look forward to the other books in the series. I hope you enjoy this book as well.

    6. Josette Thomas

      I have always loved books about ancient people and their culture this book did not disappoint. I found it as a recommendation. The story flowed smoothly and I loved Tepua. Such a strong female willing to stand up in a society where class and ethnicity were important. I look forward to more of her adventures.

      This took me a little bit of time to get through, because the beginning was slow, but after about 30 pages it got better. Drama ensued and it made the story better. I was at first really, really worried this was soley going to be a boring ol' story, but there is a lot at play. There is a love triangle, political intrigue, and a growing into a woman story. Some parts where very, very dry, but the not dry parts did make up for it sort of. I actually didn't mind the love triangle. Crazy, right? It [...]

      Daughter of the Reef shares the tale of Tepua, a chieftain's daughter, who's on her way to a different island to get married to a man she doesn't know, and ends up almost drowned. The book starts off nicely, with some background setting the scene and the characters, but ends up being too slow paced for me. I didn't like the pacing very much the first half of the book, but enjoyed the story line enough to keep on going for the first half of the book, but by the halfway mark, I just wanted the nov [...]

      This was so good! I liked how it threw me back to ancient Tahiti and to a way of life that has no resemblance to how (my) life is now. I loved the details, from their staple food, to fishing methods, beliefs, and governance! I enjoyed the characters as well—strong women who do not take sh*t from anyone/anything are totally my thing! :DI have to mention, having grown up in a Catholic-majority country where there is traditionally a lot of anxiety about sex, that I found refreshing how sexually f [...]

      I enjoy historical fiction so I finished this, but there were some major plot issues that confused me - why Tepua went from desperately wanting to get home to desperately wanting to avoid home, as well as there was little to no development of the relationship between Tepua and Rimapoa - it seemed to fall into an intimate physical relationship without build up. As well, there was a handful of typos which could be jarring.

    11. Alisa

      I loved this whole series. It is very rare for me to read something twice but this saga was so detailed and the images of this ancient time so interesting that once I finished the last in the series I couldn't wait to read it again.

    12. Polly Krize

      Set in ancient Tahiti, Tepua finds herself stranded in an unfamiliar place, surrounded by the unknown. Through her strong values and generous personality, she finds her path. A wonderful read about times past, and I look forward to the second and third volumes.

    13. Ruby Tickle

      Great read for beach time and really any other time also. I got lost in the islands and felt connected with these characters. I would have gave an additional star if the romance would have been more abundant.

    14. Catherine

      I loved this book! I can't wait to read the next 2 in the series! I love all things Polynesian as I grew up with Polynesian dancing and so I was able to understand how their culture works (arranged marriages, the importance of dance). Just a great story overall!

    15. Rob

      Fascinating look at a historical culture that most people know little about. A strong woman character. Plenty of romance and adventure. Reminds me of She-Who-Remembers.
