Overview

Looking for an urban fantasy series in the tradition of Jim Butcher, Richard Kadrey, and Kevin Hearne? Check out the high-octane thrills and supernatural chills of the Templar Chronicles!

Cade Williams was just an ordinary cop until the night he came face to face with a fallen angel known as the Adversary and nearly died. Now he commands the Echo Team, a special ops squad of modern Templar knights, and the things they hunt are far darker and much more deadly than your average criminals.

When Templar bases are attacked by unknown foes, Cade and his team are called out to investigate. They discover a cabal of necromancers allied with the Adversary and are forced to take the battle to the enemy to keep them from stealing the power of an ancient relic for their own nefarious ends.

Vengeance is mine, sayeth the Lord, but Cade's been known to bend a rule or two and right now he's got a score to settle...

    Fun if you're in the mood, otherwise barely okay

    So the Templars are full of Stallone, Willis, Van Damme types. Tough guys that work for the church. Cade Williams is just another tormented action hero (or anti-hero, more like it) who's bent on revenge. I guess this will sound all too familiar: his wife's been taken by a powerful, evil enemy, and Cade's life has been marked by this. Same old story but the heroes here do not belong to the the marines, the police force... but templars. If you're in the mood for some mindless action, this book will be fun.

    great start to series

    This book is start of a series I waited to read them until thought was all finished. Now am waiting for one #5 to be finished. I hate to start reading then not be able to read all. The first 4 are very short so you may want to just get all at one time if you are a fast read fast. The books are very good and keep you interested until end. Just too short.

    Great story

    If you dont mind minor profanity and the mix of magic and religion this is something you might like. The story will suck you in doesn't slow down till the end. Its a free book pick it up and i bet you will buy the rest. I did

    more from this reviewer

    Teriffic horror thriller

    When their organization was outlawed, the Knights Templar went underground until the Vatican recognized them again and they became an arm of the church fighting the supernatural enemies of humanity. One Knight Commander Cade Williams, in charge of Echo Command, joined the order when as a policeman he encountered a supernatural entity he calls the Adversary that killed his wife. He fully intends to avenge his wife¿s death but for now he fights the cases of the order whenever he is called to do so. Someone or something is attacking commanderies (various headquarters of the Knights Templar), killing the Templars and raising them from the dead as revenants. The group of nine led by Simon Hamilton Logan, the head Necromancer is looking for the Spear of Destiny for it is believed whoever possesses it could rule the world. The battle becomes personal for Cade when he realizes the Necromancer is in league with his enemy the Adversary. Before he can ever think of taking vengeance on his foe, he must keep the spear out of the enemy¿s hands, a difficult thing to accomplish when there is a traitor within his organization. --- Horror fans will be delighted to discover the works of Joseph Nassise a relatively new writer who can hold his own with such masters as Douglas Clegg, Bentley Little, and Stephen King. Heretic is a dark work, gothic in tone with scary scenes that will frighten even those who don¿t get scared by reading a horror novel. The protagonist fights on the side of the light even though he has his own agenda. Like this reviewer, fans will look forward to more adventures starring Cade and the Knights Templar. --- Harriet Klausner

    Engrossing and twisted. Dancing on the edge of apocalyptic disas

    Engrossing and twisted. Dancing on the edge of apocalyptic disaster, Cade and his knights templar fight to keep the world from falling into ruin. Loaded Catholic symbolism, this dark urban fantasy series should draw a following. 4.5 Stars *I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review*

    BN needs to ban both you and Harriet! Yes, she's a spoiler, but YOU punish the authors with only one star because you are apparently too stupid to skip her signed reviews. So complain directly to BN already!
