5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 15 Dec 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
The Heretic is easily one of the best books I've read all year. If you read and enjoyed The Adept Series by Katherine Kurtz and miss that series now that it has ended, this one is for you.

There are several POVs, but the characterization is outstanding enough that I ended up caring about several characters--a rare feat by an author indeed. The paranormal elements and world building are consistent and well-done. The pacing is fantastic.

This book managed to be action-packed and deal with military and Templar issues without being the least bit dry or preachy. It's got tough guy AND heart. The best news for me was to find that the entire trilogy is already available. I've already downloaded the second book.

If you liked Da Vinci code, this one is notches and notches above--everything Da Vinci could have been and wasn't. If you didn't like Da Vinci code and never got the excitement over the themes, give this a shot. It did everything right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fact meets fiction maybe 22 Feb 2013
By Fergo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What if a truth you thought was real actually was a fiction designed to protect you and it. An underground secret society but in this case one that is set to help and protect a myth from the past that never really was a myth but instead is reality. If you enjoy a mix of history, fiction, fantasy and what if then the book and series are worth reading through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good thriller 7 Sep 2012
By Shishya
Format:Kindle Edition
The book is quiet good. I was a bit worried in the beginning, as I have tried to read a few similar books, and they all go into weird tangents. Like the hero/heroines love story, some boring back story etc.

But here the author keeps the story tight. The book starts with an attack on a Church compound, that may have been caused by supernatural beings. A man known as the Heretic is called in to investigate, as he has knowledge of the occult, though the other Church members view him with disgust.

The story is non stop then, as the Heretic fears someone in the Church is working with the demonic forces, and he has to stop them before they destroy the Church. The action is good and fast.

The book ends well, and can be read independently, though it is a part of a trilogy.

Recommended if you like urban fantasies, that do not involve mushy romance or glittering vampires. ;)
