       Additional Information  
     
      In the time of legends, Hephaestus, smith of the gods, wrought a stone of astonishing power and gave it to the Greeks. Theseus broke the eternal stone in four and gave each piece to a Guardian. History has never been the same.

    It was the Guardians who made Atlantis sink; they spread the bubonic plague; and a Guardian was the Ubermensch behind the Third Reich. Of the first Guardians, only Roman gladiator Corbo has survived to maintain the balance of history. Now, as Corbo juggles the scales of power in several eras at once, new young Guardians try to master the stones.

    Corbo has uncovered a Nazi threat--centuries ago! But he's tired of saving the world, and two wannabe Guardians are stuck in a medieval England where witches rule and the local inn has modern plumbing. While Cobra is busy freeing King Henry from medieval Nazis, the wannabes are doing the only smart thing: inventing the blues to foment revolution.
