Hidden Religion – A Novel

  What is stronger? A man’s beliefs or his survival instinct? When the rational gives you a death sentence, the irrational becomes your best friend. When Alnor Loro, a 25-year-old, learns that he has a terminal illness, no amount of brightness of the day can stop his world from falling apart.

As chance would have it, he won’t be going through this journey alone, after all. Befriending a mysterious girl, who undermines his reasoning, makes him second-guess the actual fatality of his illness and question everything he has ever believed (or has never believed) in. Upon hearing about a special place and a hidden religion that can bring about his full recovery, Alnor is increasingly convinced that this girl is far from sane. Nevertheless, since there is nothing left to lose, Alnor lets curiosity (and hope, perhaps?) get the better of him and finds himself on a spiritual journey during which everything seems to be possible. What is the right way when there is no way?…
