Jack Whyte does a good job of character development in this trilogy that blends his characters together in plots that are exciting and historical. His descriptions allow the reader to visualize the surroundings and situations. I do not understand why these books have not been turned into movies or a mini series. REMO

If you have ever wondered about the legend of the Templars or why we have Friday the 13th, this book is for you. It is a guaranteed page turner. It also answered several questions about the Middle East and why relations with them have always been so strained. This trilogy would be a great book club selection.

I have read Jack's Camulod series' and really enjoyed them. This Templars' series just never gets up and running. It's as if he doesn't know where he's going with the books. The whole story of the Templar's and their 'secret society' is being told over and over again, and Jack doesn't seem to present anything new or interesting. There are alot of boring and mundane happenings going on in this book, and we never really have any anticipation or action that builds up. Final review Don't bother.

Led by Richard the Lionhearted, 50,000 soldiers are ready to do battle to regain the Holy Land from the Saracen chieftain Saladin and his forces. Amongst Richard¿s army is Knight of the Templar Alexander Sinclair, who is willing to die to see the Christians succeed in this Crusade against the unfaithful. He and the rest of the force believe victory is theirs because God is on their side. However, to the shock and consternation of the Christian Crusaders, the battle by Galilee turns into a defeat. Richard refuses to quit on his dream of the Holy Land controlled by Christians he plans to raise another but bigger army. To do so he sails home accompanied by his loyal master-at-arms Henry St. Clair and the armorer¿s son, Andre, a Templar belonging to the top secret Brotherhood of Sion, a group with their own agenda. The second Templar tale (see KNIGHTS OF THE BLACK AND WHITE) is a fabulous historical fiction tale that brings alive the Lionhearted Crusade in the Holy Land and the king¿s efforts to raise money and men. The story line plays out on two levels. First there is throughout all sorts of political shenanigans occurring as everyone has a secret agenda second there are the battles between the Christian Defenders of the Faith and the Saracens defending their Holy Land. Jack Whyte provides a strong vivid middle tale so picturesque readers will taste the desert dust.------- Harriet Klausner

I found the book tedious and hard to follow at times. Not much action... It seems like a book that is setting the scene for the next one where the boring part of the story has to be told. I finally finished but the excruciating detail was almost too much.
