Summary (From the publisher):

The preserved bones of the great Hawaiian king, Kamehameha, have survived in hiding into the twenty-first century and are the key to many secrets. For the young mathematician, Cen, they are the key to travel in time and between alternate universes. For the native Hawaiians Resistance movement, they are a symbol of independence but also the source of genetic material from which the great king may be cloned and rise again. Cen's mathematics and Akamu, the boy who might be king, become hidden treasures in the most amazing plot in contempory SF.

  • "Kathleen Ann Goonan's second novel is every bit as good as 'Queen City Jazz', her celebrated first. 'The Bones of Time' is deliberately paced, character-orientated science fiction, and Goonan's depiction of Hawaii forty years from now is highly intriguing. One can well understand why her work has already earned plaudits from the likes of william Gibson and Lucius Shepard." Washington Post Book World
  • "Goonan expertly interweaves these two stories amid a lush description of Hawaii and its indigenous culture. Highly recommended." Library Journal
