  • The Lost Tohunga is the third book in David Hair s chilling YA series about Matiu Mat Douglas, and his discovery of his place in world of myth and magic.One of the things I love about David Hairs writing his is ability to envelope the reader in the story, he plays on your senses until you can see the mist rising, you can feel the chill as the fog settles, hear the wind calling, and smell the ancient forest Which makes for some hair raising moments, and some downright disturbing imagery Why are t [...]

  • Another great addition to the Bone Tiki series This may actually be the best book of the three It adds a great deal of complexity to some of the characters that were one dimensional in the first and second book particularly the evil Donna Kyle We also get to spend time seeing the story from different perspectives, rather than pretty much sticking with Mat s viewpoint I really appreciate the fact that Hair resists the draw of making everything wrap up in a happy package, though to be honest, I [...]


  • This is the third of Mat s adventures, and the author is really finding his footing now The storyline is fast paced, the characters distinctive and the use of Maori mythology adds a unique touch It is refreshing to see a paranormal style urban fantasy in which the characters are not werewolves or vampires although the patupaiarehe come close to the latter Speaking of the patupaiarehe, it was quite novel to see the author give them a Celtic flavour as from their descriptions in folklore , one can [...]


  • This is the best in the sense most complex book in the series so far Mat, the series protagonist, is maturing, and the background of villain Donna Kyle is explained somewhat The ending leaves a possibly for redemption for Donna.There is an undercurrent of viciousness throughout, though, that makes this series unpleasant reading.


  • Third one in the series set in Rotorua, my hometown, so naturally going to find a connection with the text Another great piece of teen fiction by David Hair, would recommend this series to any teen


  • An okay book decent story, average prose I m curious about where it leads, but most of the female characters are still frustratingly two dimensional.
