Poseidon's Storm Blaster is the first book in The Legend of Pineapple Cove series by Marina J. Bowman. This is the story of two very brave kids named Kai and Delphi. They live in an island town called Pineapple Cove where everything is beautiful and the people are happy and content with their lives. On the surface, it is very much like any other island city, but there is a secret that has been kept from the world for a reason. No one knows what this secret is, especially not Kai and Delphi. However, when the peace and tranquility of their island are threatened, both Kai and Delphi hope to find out what this secret is and use it to save their city. It is a race against time with just their courage to arm themselves. Can Delphi and Kai find out what the secret is in time and save their city?
Fast-paced, entertaining and very encouraging, Poseidon’s Storm is the perfect story for young readers who enjoy action and interesting protagonists. The heavy focus on friendship, being brave, being selfless and thinking about others is a great lesson for children. The setting of the story is original and I liked the idea of both Delphi and Kai having to dig deeper into the history of their island city to find the secret. Their friendship was tremendous; they had each other’s backs at all times and valued each other.
Narrator Jeff Price breathed life into the story with his performance and made it even more interesting for me. The cadence of his voice, the way he kept the story going and had me riveted with just his voice was simply amazing. These were the best 50+ minutes of enjoyment where I was engrossed in how Jeff was telling the story. If this is the effect on me, I can imagine how enjoyable this audiobook will be for young listeners. This audiobook is a great gift for children who are looking for an entertaining adventure and to make new friends with fictional characters.
