9781537509686: Holy Remedy (The Invisible Conflict Chronicles) (Volume 1)

Baron Levente has fallen under a terrible disease. Bishop Konrád, his chief advisor, insists that it is not a natural illness, but a curse.

In the 13th century, the Magyars are rebuilding the Kingdom of Hungary, devastated by the Mongols’ invasions. But not everyone has altruistic intentions; someone has fixed his gaze on the Carpathian Mountains, and found the perfect way to increase his power without arousing suspicion.

Meanwhile, the royal court summons knight Rodger Clement to discuss the situation. Rumors tell of a cure in the depths of the Bükk Mountains, and Clement is the only one who can stand up to the task.

His resolve, blood and sword are at the service of his lord, and he will do anything in his power to save him... even if it means giving his own life.

Holy Remedy by J.G. Martins is Book One in The Invisible Conflict Chronicles, an epic tale with a stunning historical setting around the 13th century. It is a period when the quest for power and superstitious beliefs are very strong. The Magyars have barely recovering from the invasion by the Mongols, working hard to rebuild their kingdom. It is at this time that a deadly disease hits the Baron Levente, the regent of Eger. For Bishop Konrád, it's a curse. Unless a cure is found quickly, the Baron will die. A cure has been found, but it is located in the treacherous deeps of the Bükk Mountains and only one man can beat the odds to reach there, the Baron's own pupil and knight, Rodger Clement. Can he make it to the heart of the mountain and be back in time to save his master?

There is a lot to enjoy in Holy Remedy, a tale set against the backdrop of one of Europe's great cultural crossroads and melting pots, Hungary, with lush vegetation and strange beliefs. I couldn't help thinking about the witch-hunting that took place in this land hundreds of years ago. The story features great and compelling characters and a lot of action and fighting. The plot is well conceived and readers are treated to many twists and surprises as they turn the pages. J.G. Martins writes beautiful dialogues and they play a powerful role in enhancing plot and character development. The dialogue flows naturally and merges with the wonderful descriptions to create great beauty in the work. This is a novel with great historical elements, a gripping plot and a huge conflict. Martins definitely takes readers to an historic age and across dangerous lands.
