Book Description

The Sword of the Templar is Paul Christopher's dazzling first instalment in the new templar series.



The deadliest weapon is the truth



After a life on the front lines, Army Ranger John Holliday is now teaching at West Point Military Academy. But when his uncle passes away, Holliday discovers a medieval sword among his things - sinisterly wrapped in Adolf Hitler's personal battle standard. Then someone viciously burns down his uncle's house and Holliday's secret fears about the mysterious sword ring alarmingly true.



Holliday must delve into the past and piece together the puzzle that was his uncle's life - his involvement with the enigmatic warriors known as the Knight's Templar. But his search for answers soon becomes a race against a ruthless and cunning opponent, willing to die for their cause. Can Holliday live long enough to reveal the treacherous but critical truth?



The Sword of the Templars by Paul Christopher is the first instalment in the historical thriller series following John Holliday on his quest to uncover the secrets of the ancient Templar Order. Subsequent titles include The Templar Cross and the Templar Conspiracy, Lost City of the Templars and Valley of the Templars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent !! 24 Jun. 2011
Format:Paperback
I was astonished at the previous reviews for this book . I found it a fast moving and exciting read . It may not be for "purist" followers of Dan Brown , who mainly practises plagiarism ,but for anyone looking for a good read ....look no further than Paul Christopher. He writes in a great style ,whilst incorporating accurate historical facts . I advise any prospective reader of this book , to follow their own instincts and not to be influenced by lovers of Dan Brown , or indeed Enid Blyton !!!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Sword of The Templars 25 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Readable. Bite size chapters but lead characters somewhat underdeveloped and difficult to warm to. Kuznetski does this stuff better but later books get better reviews so onwards and upwards.

A cross between Dan Brown and Clive Cussler but not quite up to the standard of either.An entertaining read if you suspend belief and want something you don't need to think about too much. I like it and I am just starting the next in the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read.........but! 26 Jan. 2014

The book is a good work of fiction, but for people who are interested in factual history of the Knights Templar I would not be able to recommend it.

This is my first outing with Paul Christopher and his Templar saga and for the most part I enjoyed it. He seemed to pack a lot of travelling for his characters and they seemed to move with almost breath-taking speed across the narrative covering vast amounts of territory almost in the blink of an eye. The storyline was good with tastes of Dan Brown always lurking in the back of the mind. Some of the plot was a little far-fetched and the characters were definite stereotypes such as the 'nasty Nazi' . There were also a number of loose ends such as ditching hire cars in unlikely locations with no come back as they are not returned or damaged. In this digital aid, it just didn't ring true. Would I read a sequel? Yes I probably would but it would not be high on my reading agenda.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Da Vinci code in disguise 24 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Yet another book on the subject of secret societies and hidden Templar treasures which has been done so many times by the likes of Dan Brown etc. However this book was ok the pace of the story was good with decent characters and was well written. The plot was somewhat predictable but kept me interested enough to read this in just a few sessions. Will I be reading the rest of the follow up books? I doubt it. I probably would if there had not been books such as the Da Vinci code. I just feel that this type of story has been told so many times now and has become repetitive. That said it is still a decent book and if you are a fan of these conspiracy theories about the Templar's treasures etc. it's not a bad effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars All about the templars. 22 Jan. 2015
By Le fey
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started off reading book 8 until I realised there were more so started at the beginning and now on book five. I enjoy this kind of book it may not be to everyones taste but I give it four stars. The main characters are good and there is a lot historical bits in the book. I wish I could give more details about the book but each one has something special and as the books progress the same characters keep appearing. A must read for cold winters night.
