Overview

Set during the conflict in Bosnia, on Easter Sunday in the town square of Tenica, Dimiter Markovitz witnesses the slaughter of her father, mother, siblings and many of the townspeople. As she flees for her life, she snatches an infant from the ground and races from the carnage that once was their home. Filled with revenge, she hikes with the child to the monastery of St. Vladimir, home of her elder brother, where she is introduced to the Starets, the Holy head of the monastery. There she views her first glimpse of the Cup of Arimathaea.

Seeking arms to affect her revenge, Dimiter is contacted by the acting Mayor of Tenica, who persuades her to locate Hugh Blackwell, an international arms dealer who is believed to be in Monaco. She leaves the child with the monks and begins her journey of intrigue and abject terror. During her quest for revenge, she becomes embroiled in the search for the stolen Spear of Longinus.

Editorial Reviews

Allbooks Reviews
Dimiter Markovitz stands shocked as bullets riddle Tenica, her village, killing her parents and siblings. She reaches for a lone infant as she runs in terror from the carnage that once was her home.

Fleeing to the monastery where her elder brother resides she meets the Starets, Holy head of the monestary who introduces her to the Cup of Arimathaea. She leaves her charge Alexi in the arms of the monks and begins a journey of revenge, intrigue, and absolute terror. And it is here that she becomes embroiled in the Search for the stolen Cup and the Spear of Longinus. Exciting page turning drama enfolds as readers are drawn into the world of munitions, torture and underworld marketers.

Historical facts are well researched and the settings are vivid and alive. Dimiter's character is realistic and believable. The evil Veronica is the epitome of darkness. Small dispersions of paranormal happenings make this book fascinating. This fiction also gives the reader an in depth look at one the of Christianity's revered artifacts.

Sam Joy And Jean Sidney Blomquist joined forces as Jason Edwards to create Legend Of The Spear. And from page one, readers will be hooked by this excellent fiction.

    I See a Movie Coming!

    If you enjoyed Indiana Jones and found the Da Vinci Code fascinating you will Love this book! Without warning, machine-gun bullets ricochet off buildings. Spent bullets cause puffs of dust to rise from the lawn of the village square. Screams of the injured and dying pierce the Easter Sunday air. Terror holds the young heroine, Dimiter Markovitz, in momentary paralysis and me, holding my breath. This book launches the reader into a fast-moving journey of terror, intrigue, double-cross and paranormal events as Dimiter goes in search of two relics of the Christian world, the Cup of Arimathaea and the Spear of Longinus. If you enjoy escaping into a shadow world of danger, intrigue and magic, you will enjoy this story of high adventure and fast pacing. You will find yourself sitting on the edge of your chair as this story unfolds. For the metaphysically inclined, there are paranormal events woven throughout this amazing tale. There are historical references, accurate descriptions and well-known legends intrigrated into this work of surprise, giving to it a sense of reality. Bravo!
