Overview

Order in Chaos (Templar Trilogy Series #3) by Jack Whyte

The new Templar novel from the USA Today bestselling author

On the morning of October 13, 1307, every Templar knight in France is arrested by the order of King Philip IV, who then seizes all the Order's assets and set the Inquisition against them. Warned of the plot, Sir William St. Clair flees from France with the Temple's treasure, several hundred knights, and the widow Lady Jessica Randolph to seek sanctuary in Scotland. There, with his men deprived of everything they valued and held dear at home, he will lead them into battle as Templar Knights one last time in defiant support of a king who is not their own, but who has earned their trust.

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.

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.
