A Promise Kept
MasterWorks International, 2003 - Fiction - 224 pages
When an enigmatic stranger promises to cure a young Englishman's recurring bouts of asthma it seems too good an opportunity to miss. At the time there was no indication that in the process he would end up being possessed by a 1500 year old Hawaiian Kahuna with a mission. A Kahuna, or priest magician, well versed in the ancient arts of enacting the death spell, sorcery and the native healing rituals of the time. A man, whose life since birth, had been dedicated to the service of the gods, but who had miraculously found the love of a young island woman with whom he shared the secrets of his art. It soon becomes apparent that this powerful kahuna has travelled across time and space from the island of Kaua'i to fulfil a promise. A promise made over the dead body of his beautiful apprentice to somehow let her know of the depth of his unspoken love for her. To finally free his spirit, he is honour bound to make restitution for calling upon the gods to bring swift and violent death to the warriors who killed her, thus violating the code by which he had vowed to live. Helping him fulfil his promise, was to expose the Englishman, and those close to him, to a series of bizarre and magical events that took him close to the edge of madness.
