Guardian Maia is a hybrid historical/science-fiction story that draws on the mythology of the Māori culture in New Zealand.
Guardian Maia is also a global story and taps into the universal human need to belong and understand the mysteries of the world.
The people of a tribal settlement in Fiordland are protected by guardians and one guardian, Maia, lives outside the settlement, in the forest as she protects her people from hostile outside forces. Her duty is not only to protect her people but to ensure the forest and its beings are also protected.
Her strength, her speed and her ability to speak with birds have always set her apart from others. As a guardian she is tolerated. As a woman she is feared.
