“Though Shiu writes her books for a Teen or Young Adult audience, her commitment to expand the mind is so well centered that her audience could comfortably and satisfyingly include adult readers, especially those curious about universal levels of being.” --Grady Harp, Amazon Top 50 Hall of Fame Reviewer

‘Statue of Ku’ follows Hillary and Moa as they jet to Egypt on the Prince’s private plane to reclaim Moa’s family heirloom, the inimitable statue of Ku. Once on the ground, however, they find that their search is less about retrieving a treasured family possession and more about tracing a healing path in their genetic lineage to its true beginning. Their journey involves magic, sacrifice and discovering their unique healing gifts, which live within all of us. Their story intertwines with that of the real boy, Ku — his questions, his travails and, eventually, his triumph. In their continuing search for the Statue, Hillary and Moa find that the answer to every question they seek is where they least expect it and that healing gifts are not lost but merely forgotten.

Tricia Stewart Shiu recently completed a successful Kickstarter campaign which helped raise funds for the costs of editing, publishing and publicity for “Iron Shinto,” as well as the audio books for all three books in the Moa series.  “The series is designed to appeal to the fans of Young Adult, Metaphysical Fantasy Fiction and others who just love books,” says Shiu.

The author, in addition to being an award-winning playwright, is also a metaphysical adept who actually met Moa, the ancient Hawaiian spirit at the heart of the series. "When I was five," Ms. Shiu explained, "I was visited by a vision. I’ll never forget it, I was running down the stairs and the entity, a girl with dark hair, stopped me in my tracks. The spirit said that I would go through a deeply challenging time in my life, but would resurface, later in life, with unimaginable joy and fulfillment. That vision stayed with me."

Many years later, taking a nap during a visit to her husband's family home in Honolulu, that dark-haired girl came back. "In my mind’s eye, I saw a beautiful young woman with dark hair, who said her name was Moaahuulikkiaaakea’o Haanaapeekuluueehuehakipuunahe’e—Moa for short."

Ms. Shiu's experience with this benevolent spirit launched her into a personal journey of spiritual exploration which included studies in mediumship, pagan and Huna rituals as well as an energy healing technique called “Crystalline Consciousness Technique.” She also studied a variety of shamanic clearing methods and healing rituals.

The result of the author's unique background is that each chapter of the book begins with a meditative ritual that pertains to that chapter. Some of the rituals, oils or meditations are even mentioned in the plot of the book. All of these rituals are easily done by the reader and have remarkably soothing and healing properties.

The author sums it all up this way; "Whatever your belief or understanding of the metaphysical world, I believe that if one person is transformed through learning, then we are all transformed. I truly believe the Moa I met came through in this work and, just as I connected with her as I wrote, those who read the book will experience her as well."

All of the books in the Moa series are available on Amazon or on the author’s website
