Inquisitor

Overview

"The themes of the novel are religion, heresy and the definition of right and wrong," says author Joel Martin. "I was inspired to write Inquisitor because I wanted to see a fresh take on a tired fantasy genre seemingly much tied down by an overdose of magic and the erroneous suggestion that more dwarves, elves, or dragons are good for a fantasy book. I believe the thing that sets Inquisitor apart is its connection to reality even within a fantasy world. Its latter-period setting, not adhering to the typical medieval time, also distinguishes it.

Overview

"The themes of the novel are religion, heresy and the definition of right and wrong," says author Joel Martin. "I was inspired to write Inquisitor because I wanted to see a fresh take on a tired fantasy genre seemingly much tied down by an overdose of magic and the erroneous suggestion that more dwarves, elves, or dragons are good for a fantasy book. I believe the thing that sets Inquisitor apart is its connection to reality even within a fantasy world. Its latter-period setting, not adhering to the typical medieval time, also distinguishes it. The dark, gritty, blood, sweat, and tears approach is one I felt very strongly about."

An epic adventure, Inquisitor delves into the deeper motivations of seemingly simple characters. "It is all about the grey," says Martin, "and shows that the world is rarely black and white."

Sinister, violent, and gritty, this highly original story has many touches of black humour, and will keep fans of fantasy fiction riveted until the very last page.

Meet the Author

Joel Martin was born in the city of Wanganui in New Zealand. When his family moved, Australia became his second home, and he has lived there for most of his life. Believing there is something captivating about sitting down with a good book, Martin has a passion for reading classics such as The Count of Monte Cristo and Ivanhoe, which inspired him to write. He attributes the style and knowledge he applies to his fantasy novels to many Arthurian tales. A revolutionary fantasy, his new book, Inquisitor, takes readers inside a world that is embroiled in a dangerous struggle for power between church and state.
