The Island of Tamarind TrilogyBy CustomerAuthor Nadia Aguiar's trilogy of adventure books for the young (and curious of all ages) has just been completed. All three books are about the Nelsons. Peter and Marisol Nelson are marine biologists. They are often living on their sail boat, the "Pamela Jane". They also spend time on the Island of Bermuda with Granny Pearl. They have three children: Maya, Simon, and
Penny. Maya is the protagonist in the first book, "The Lost Island of Tamarind", Maya is 13, Simon is 9, and Penny is 8 months. The many adventures in this book revolve around the island of Tamarind. Although it is far more bizarre, Tamarind does have some similarities to Bermuda. That might be expected from an author who grew up on the beautiful island of Bermuda. Many Atlantic Ocean creatures appear, as well as an amazing parrot, an orphan boy of the forest, a wondrous mineral, and plenty of bad guys and other creatures to deal with. In the second book, "Secrets of Tamarind", everybody is four years older, and we now view scenes through the eyes of Simon .In the third book, "The Great Wave of Tamarind", the now teen-aged Penny takes over as story teller I don't know your endurance capacity, but once you start this trilogy of fast-paced and loaded-with-surprises happenings, people, and other creatures it will be difficult to stop.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful.

Penny Nelson grew up listening to her older sister and brother recount their adventures in Tamarind, a magical island not found on any map, but she sometimes she can't tell which of her memories are hers and which are theirs.After drifting out to sea, Penny once again finds herself on the shores of Tamarind. But things are wrong on the island: portals lead to treacherous places, a strange creature is wreaking havoc, and a Great Wave is coming to bring the Bloom, magic that can stabilize the island. Whoever completes three challenges gets to catch the Bloomand keep some of that life-changing magic for their own use.To save Tamarind and collect the magic, Penny has to brave dark ocean depths, survive the perils of the jungle, and outwit a cunning creature bent on bringing chaos.Don't miss The Great Wave of Tamarind, the stunning conclusion to Nadia Aguiar's critically acclaimed middle-grade trilogy! The Great Wave of Tamarind"Sensory descriptions of imaginary flora, fantastic fauna, and vivid landscapes plus an atmosphere charged with impending danger add to Tamarind's allure. ... This exciting, fast-paced, satisfying finale to the Tamarind trilogy does not disappoint." Kirkus sIn Aguiars satisfying finale to her Tamarind trilogy, Penny returns to the magical island seven years after Secrets of Tamarind (2011). . . . This volume works equally well as a standalone and a series conclusion (longtime fans will rejoice at Helixs return). With heartfelt emotion, an exotic setting, and a mix of wilderness survival and fantasy quest, this has something for everyone." BooklistSecrets of Tamarind"This is a great adventure that sets the stage for a third book in the series.

Rich descriptions and quirky characters will captivate fantasy genre fans." Dawna Lisa Buchanan, Children's LiteratureThe Lost Island of Tamarind:"All signs point to a sequelone that readers won't want to miss." Publishers Weekly, starred review "Readers will be drawn into this dangerous, magical world where anything is possible and nothing can be fully explained." School Library JournalThe book's magic . . . lies in Aguiar's precise, often lyrical descriptions. A native and resident of Bermuda, she writes with authority about daily life in the tropics....Aguiar uses her knack for realistic details equally well in the magical parts. . . . The Lost Island of Tamarind has a gentle spirit, tempering its dangers with warmth.
