Overview

The cataclysmic conclusion to the international bestselling Brethren trilogy

1295 A. D. The Christian empire in the Holy Land lies in ruins. Returning to Paris, Knight Templar Will Campbell is at a crossroads. He has sworn to uphold the principles of the Anima Templi, a secret brotherhood within the Order whose aim is peace, but peace seems ever more impossible.

The Temple has forged an alliance with Will's enemy, King Edward of England, vowing to help him wage war on Scotland. Will now faces a bitter choice: to stay with the Temple and fight another war he doesn't believe in, or to break his vows and forge his own path to peace, even if that too means fighting...for the Scots. Will is unaware that an even more ominous threat is rising, for there is a warrior king on the throne of France whose desire for supremacy knows no bounds and who will stop at nothing to fulfill his twisted ambitions. The fight for the holy land is over, but the Temple's last battle has just begun...

    an entertaining educational story

    After the crushing defeat at Acre and the failure to take Jerusalem (see BRETHREN and CRUSADE), Knight Templar Will Campbell returns to Europe to find a shocking new world order awaits him. Still depressed over the end of the Christian Kingdoms in the Holy Land, he finds monarchs at least as powerful as the Pope is. At the Templar main chapter in Paris, Will also learns that the French King Philippe is trying to take back the lands that belong to English King Edward I. To achieve his objective, Philippe signed a treaty with Scotland in which he provides them with money and arms so the Scots can occupy King Edward while France regains the occupied lands on the continent.<BR/><BR/>Although he hates Edward, Will goes to England with two other Templars to meet with the monarch. His worst fears prove real when the Templars agree to fight the Scots; he objects and quits the order as an overt sign of his protestation. He remains in Scotland for years fighting against the English before finally returning to Paris where he hears of a plot by Philippe and his advisers to disband the Templars and seize their treasury and other assets. A betrayal by someone close to him leads to Will¿s capture and torture. Friends liberate him and he tries from the shadows to save the Templars. <BR/><BR/>The third Last Days of the Templar saga covers the period between 1295 and 1314 in an entertaining educational story as the audience obtains a deep look at political and military intrigue in mostly England, but to a lesser degree in France and Scotland. The era is a time of tremendous tumultuous change as secular monarchs and the Papacy fight for control; the kings reject subservience to the Pope while the Holy See proclaims them as heretics. The research is meticulous as the story line is rich with flavoring, but what makes Robin Young¿s final entry in her brilliant young adult trilogy so good is the cast especially the beleaguered hero who bring alive the medieval events that changed the world setting up the cradle for the Renaissance.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner

    An excellent read for middle ages buffs. Just enough factual history to keep it very believable.

    This is the third of a trilogy by an author that is quite young and unknown to me. It is a great stand alone book, but is much enhanced if you read the first two of the trilogy. There are some interesting theories about the mysterious Templar demise. The characters are appealing and can easily be identified with. The story moves along quickly and it is apparent that there has been a significant amount of research on territories and the various monarchies in power during the late thirteenth and early fourteenth centuries.

    a duplicate from the original

    I had bought this book for my husband because I was told it was different from her others. Come to find out it is a duplicate of her book "the Requiem". Was rather disappointed to find out that I had bought double prints, but over all it is an excellent book if you love the templar area of history.
