Adriana Kouliasabout this book: In the year 1244 the Castle of Montségur, the secure Cathar Castle is besieged by the Catholic Church and the French Army. Locked inside the small fortress situated high in the mountains the heretics and their supporters battle to avoid dying on the pyre or being imprisoned for life. Amidst the confusion and mayhem of an intractable war, a Cathar Perfect, Bertrand Marty, is visited by a mysterious woman who unfolds a story of shattering proportions. She reveals secrets, both dangerous and devastating, which have been hidden for centuries in the annals of a Fifth gospel. Secrets that have the power to answer all questions and reconcile all faiths.
Judea and France, two worlds separated by space and time clash in this story of courage and sacrifice; of faith beyond life, and of startling secrets buried in time.
Fifth Gospel was my first completely self published novel and I really enjoyed the process. It was turned down by Random House who wanted to publish The Sixth Key first, so I decided to publish it myself and it has now become an Amazon best seller beating Paulo Coelho and David Mitchell!
It took two years to write and I had to research The New Testament from ground up. I had also been to Montsegur some years before and had more than enough information on it: pictures, notes, books etc to bring that timeline in without too much trouble. It forms a part of my Rosicrucian Quartet Series which can be read in any order.
It was truly a joy to write. I wrote everyday for 8 hours straight and ended up with about 6 drafts!
In some ways I feel this will be my most important book, because its content is so unique and controversial - though it seems that it has touched hearts no matter what their faith and religion. This was really my goal.
