Episode 5: The Monsters of Na Akua

In my new novel, Na Akua, I plumbed the depths of Hawaiian mythology and legend to give my story as much solid footing as possible. Mostly, that meant researching the various gods of Hawaii and making sure my characterizations of them were accurate...but it also meant picking out some of the more sinister and thrilling monsters from ancient Hawaiian legend and repurposing them for my own selfish narrative! In this episode of The Mainlander's Guide to the Legend of Hawaii, we explore three of those devious creatures in all their dangerous glory!
