Editorial Reviews

Review

"Beautifully written in typical Falconer style with plenty of snap and sharpness, and wonderfully researched, I enjoyed every page of this book." 
- Great Historicals
"The story moves along at a cracking pace, the narrative fraught with action and tension at every turn."- Bookmuse
"Fast paced, sprinkled with unique and unusual details, and with plenty of emotion, makes this a must read for those who love the medieval period or books about the unexplained mysteries of life." - History and Women
"The story moves along at a cracking pace, the narrative fraught with action and tension at every turn. I found Philip and Fabricia sympathetic and believable characters, and I would highly recommend Stigmata as a powerful tale of religious heresy, crusades, loss and love." - Historical Novel Society 
"Colin Falconer is one of those historical fiction authors that takes a subject and not only researches it thoroughly but also has the talent to take you to the heart of the matter whilst making you feel that you're seeing history being made at the time of the events. As with his other work the story has a cracking pace, the lead character Philip of Vercy believable and when blended with religious heresy alongside crusade, makes for an edge of your seat read. Add to this top notch prose a wonderfully almost cinematic feel to the story and of course a lead character that you can really get behind and all in it's a wonderful read. Great stuff." - Dros Delnoch, Falcatta Times

From the Author

This novel started with two quite separate fascinations; onewas the Albigensian Crusade, which is a harmless sounding name for a brutalcampaign of genocide that set Christians against fellow Christians in southernFrance and was not only sanctioned but instigatedby the Pope.
 
It was also the war that inspired many of the Grail mythsthat featured in the da Vinci Code.
 
The other fascination was with the stigmata - woundsimitating Christ's from the crucifixion - and the people who display them.
 
What if a stigmatic appeared during the time of the Pope'scrusade - but on the side of those being persecuted by the Pope?
 
Stigmatics display all or some of the five so-called 'holywounds' from the crucifixion piercings to bleeding from the forehead similar tothat caused by the crown of thorns.
 
There have been two notable Stigmatics this century; TheresaNeumann, a Bavarian nun who even the Gestapo did not dare arrest; and PadrePio. He was persecuted by the Church during his lifetime and even banned fromsaying Mass - but after he was safely dead they made him a saint.
 
But most stigmatics through history have been women, likeFabricia in my story.
