"I had the opportunity to read the Jane Campion storyline for “The Piano” back in the 1990’s and wondered how that would make a good film. My judgment was well astray as it came in second to Schindler’s List in the Academy Awards. I had the task of supplying the Maori canoe (waka) and Warriors featured in the film.
"I also briefly worked with the actors who featured in “Once Were Warriors” and others in “Whale Rider;” both popular Maori films in the 1990’s.
"This book is an extremely well written fictional work with exciting action throughout.
"My perception is that this novel has potential to make a very good film. Michel Weatherall's literacy ability is well articulated and demonstrates an active mind in building on a storyline.
"This is an action book about a Maori Warrior who faces numerous challenges and survives to live another day. A Tribe in a world doomed to destruction and despair. Aotearoa “Land of the Long White Cloud,” is a white knuckled ride in an ocean of mystery and intrigue. I would recommend a slow read done in installments. This could be an interesting book for a movie."
- Dr. Rongo H Wetere, ONZM, FNZIM Maniapoto Tribe from Aotearoa (Maori Cultural Advisor)
“Ngaro’s Sojourney is an epic adventure that follows a Maori chieftain in a challenge that will test the bounds of faith, family, and friendship.
“In this first novel of his new Fractures series, Weatherall skillfully guides the reader through a mosaic of memorable trials and feats culminating into an elaborate tableau. Always the excellent storyteller, Weatherall produced a brochette of new and exciting characters who he led into the most unexpected circumstances, sure to surprise the reader.
“This solid story, strewed with movie-worthy action scenes and solid character development, left me satisfied yet eager to read the next book!”
- Nancy Laflamme Beta-reader
