One of the 2 main people which goes to this other realm gets scratched or
bitten by a stone golem which spreads the golem disease to him and he
slowly starts to become a golem.
The main story of the first book is he and his brother trying to find an
antidote to this.
He also isn't becoming your average stone golem he is becoming (I think)
an emerald golem and therefore is super important because there is a
prophecy within the kingdom which states the arrival of this rare golem
which will cause the queen to become unstoppable.
The queen uses the golem as her personal protection and I'm pretty sure the
queen is evil.
There is also a female character who is the love interest of the guy.
I read this book years ago and it was amazing but I would love to read it
again and I'm pretty sure it's a series too and would love to know the
