Blurb: Beachgoers on a hot day in Waikiki are stunned when a tall, handsome, island man rises from the ocean and strides, naked across the sand. He walks straight to the small, ringed enclosure containing four Wizard Stones. Positioned between the beach and the foot traffic of Kalakaua Avenue, most tourists never notice them. However, Konu, the naked man, becomes agitated at the sight of a young Asian girl draping her beach towel over the Wizard Stones. He flings her towel to the ground, inciting a near riot. Konu however, is oblivious. He’s come a long way from Tahiti and is one of the ancient wizards whose power was infused into the stones four hundred years ago. With the invisible battle between good and evil at its peak, Konu and the other wizards have been dispatched to help balance the power. He lands in modern-day Waikiki, stunned by the changes—and also, to find he is alone. Seeking the signs he’s supposed to look for, he’s surprised when a cop tries to arrest him for indecent exposure. Then the young girl’s grandfather tells the officer the strapping islander is with him. Konu has no choice but to go with him. Konu soon discovers the old man thinks the ancient sorcerer is a homeless lunatic. Will the ancient forces of evil beat him? Or can this Wizard in Waikiki find his power again, and perhaps…even love?

Review: Konu is the Guardian of the Stones. He has been sent back after five hundred years and told to follow the signs. He also has to work out what to do as now he has returned to a new time to a world which has changed.
This is a fantastically woven tale which has taken the present, infused the past and combined it with myth to give us a new incredible series that takes us away to a time of myth and legend. It reminds us of the time when people had more faith in their Gods and Goddesses and truly believed.
Konu is a brilliant character and his bewilderment at what we now take for granted is cute and the reactions of those around him to think he was crazy just because he didn’t know anything was very telling to what sort of world we live in. the instant connection that he had with Jason was good and the chance he has at new love is sweet but his continued love for Loho and his devastation when he found out what happen to him is very touching.
So for those of you who love myths and legends, paranormal, hot sex, a great story-line and a great new series then I recommend that you give this one a try, I doubt that you will be disappointed.
