    Disappointing at best

    I fully agree with the Publisher's Weekly review. There is a lot of potential in this story, but the author drops the ball. If he intended to write a dry historical account of the Knights Templar, he should have dropped the premise of a "historical novel" and done just that. At every turn where one would expect battles and intrigue, he dives deeper into uninteresting background dialogue. A real sleeper.

    Good But Not Great

    I have read several of Jack Whyte's historical novels, including the first 2 books of the Templar trilogy which I found to be extremely well written and highly entertaining. Whyte has an amazing ability to develop plots and characters while simultaneously describing historical events. Unfortunately, I do not think the final Templar novel, Order in Chaos, lives up to the lofty standards of Whyte's previous attempts. This is not to say that it is poorly written. In fact, it is a good story but not quite as good as the first 2 books of the series.

    Primarily, I have issues with the overall story line. Whyte does a masterful job describing the Templar's fall from grace as a result of a greedy French king and a weak Pope. He continues at the same high level with the establishment of a Templar colony in Scotland. However, it is at this point where the story begins to weaken and concludes with an ending that seems rushed and somewhat contrived. Despite this, it is still an enjoyable read.

    Jack Whyte has done it again

    I first started reading Jack Whyte by chance when I ran across one of his Camulod Series books. I quickly became enthralled by his story telling and finished the whole series and moved to his Templar books. This last book finishes off the trilogy and completes his saga. Jack is a wonderful Historical novelist. His attention to detail and vast knowledge of the subject matter helps him provide a rich tapestry as the back drop of his story. His characters are wonderfully chosen and the reader starts identifying with them as the story progresses. I can't wait to see what he will work on next!
