The combined effort of medical advancement reaches for a single endpoint: Panacea, a cure for all diseases and the last medication you will ever need. But when that day comes, to what lengths will men go to possess its secrets?
Cure is a near-future science fiction novella which explores the coming innovations in nanomedicine and nanotechnology and the fragile nature of our own existence.
Captain Andrew McKenzie is reassigned to a secret military post near Fort Hood, Texas, with instructions to oversee a Special Forces unit attached to a research and intelligence operation. He never thought that being placed at the North Star facility would put him in a position to choose between his military career and his own life.
Laedron hasn't been able to sleep for a week, yet he feels fresh and invigorated. He heals at an extraordinary rate, and finds that his hunger is satisfied by only a few morsels of food each day. Enhanced by the use of a soulstone, a vicar's restoration spell has done much more than cure Laedron's wounds, and a strange book may hold the secrets.
Having arrived in the Holy Land, Laedron Telpist continues his journey to halt a war provoked by the Heraldan church. He discovers that the war he so desperately wants to stop is merely a prelude to something much older than he could have imagined. With the aid of his allies, Laedron must uncover hidden plots, bring justice to the rampant corruption, and end a conflict before it claims more lives.
When Laedron Telpist's sorcery training is interrupted by a knock on the door, what once seemed a proper profession must now be hidden. In a world where priests and mages vie for the limitless power of the elements and a new Grand Vicar has sworn death to all sorcerers, Laedron is tossed into a nightmare which would see his destruction at every turn.
