Overview

The long-awaited prequel to Michael Jecks' Knight Templar mystery series

The Holy Land, 1291. A war has been raging across these lands for decades. The forces of the Crusaders have been pushed back again and again by the Muslims and now just one city remains in Crusader control. That one city stands between the past and the future, and must be defended at all costs. That city is Acre. Into this battle where men will fight to the death to defend their city comes a young boy. Green and scared, he has never seen battle before, but he is on the run from a dark past and he has no choice but to stay—and to stay means to fight. That boy is Baldwin de Furnshill. This is the story of the siege of Acre, and of the moment Baldwin first charged into battle. This is just the beginning. The rest is history.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
09/30/2013
Jecks's stirring 32nd Knights Templar mystery, a prequel, takes series hero Baldwin de Furnshill back to his beginnings for what may well be the knight's final adventure, according to an author's note. In 1291, war between Christians and Muslims has been raging in the Holy Land for many years; the only city that remains under Crusader control is Acre. At age 16, Baldwin de Furnshill, has his first taste of battle when the ship carrying him and other pilgrims to the Holy Land is attacked by enemy vessels. Once in Acre, Baldwin joins the fight to prevent the Muslims from taking over the city. The tender relationship between Baldwin and the love of his life, the slave Lucia, provides some needed relief from the brutality and the slaughter. New readers will want to seek out other books in the series, while established fans will find this a thoughtful and touching conclusion. (Nov.)

    This title is a prequel to the original series but can be read i

    This title is a prequel to the original series but can be read independently of knowing the series. If you do know the series, it is "icing on the cake." Jecks has never failed me as a first class author in historical mystery fiction (and other genre). His historical research is from primary sources and thereupon he weaves wonderful tales with grand characters. I have just about everything Jecks has writtern and still want more.
