I like to be interested in a book fairly quickly being a lazy reader. this read was grabbed straight from the off. characters easily followed ,thinking as I read of the ridley scott film , kingdom of heaven, which had similar characters,also helped to speed along my reading.for me a great read fast paced in places .how ever could have done with out sex discriptions which spoiled an otherwise great read, how ever this was kept to a minimum. look forward to next instalment after translation .

Books are a very personal preference, but if you like historic fiction similar to Bernard Cornwell books, then you will LOVE THIS !!

The book revolves around a young Templar and is full of intrigue, battle scenes, politics, and sex. I found it impossible to put down, always wanting to read one more chapter.

Cannot understand some of the few negative reviews of this book, as the characters and action just explodes off the page !!

A great read, most enjoyable the author transports the reader to the middle east with great ease and lively art.

Being a fan of historical fiction I decided to try this book. Seeing as it was only around 70p I have to say I was not expecting much.....I did not quite get what I expected!
Now this is no Bernard Cornwell novel but I found myself really getting into this book and I have to say I really quite enjoyed it! The Templars Apprentice is certainly a good read and I would definitely recommend it!

This was a very well told story that was enjoyable and keep me interested to the end. Annoyingly though, the grammar and punctuation was pretty poor in places. Some people will not find this a problem but I'm borderline OCD when it comes to written work and it grated on me a bit. Overall, still a very enjoyable read and if you like historical fiction, you'll probably enjoy this.

The method of 'an old man telling his story' can sometimes be confusing as it moves between present and past but the author handles this very well. Good characters, great battle scenes and a plot that kept me reading. My only disappointment was that it was a standalone rather than a trilogy. Disappointing for me but a credit to the author, I'll be looking for more of his work.

To be honest I can't quite make up my mind about this book.
I finished it and looked forward to finding out what would happen next. I found the style both irritating but quietly charming. As for the central character and narrator, lIke think I found the same about him.
Definitely worth a read but I don't think I'll bother with the sequel, if there is one...

I found this book to be most enjoyable and interesting you names and facts about places, you can almost feel yourself there watching it all unfold before your eyes, I would recommend anyone who likes to read about the temples and Knights to read this book, I am just about to start to read the second book and I hope it's just as good perhaps better.

This was an enjoyable high paced story. I was transported to a time of chivalry and crusaders. the knight's Templars being the most elite army of this period. Honray the main character being the apprentice and his rise to both honour and protector of a kingdom.
very enjoyable can't wait for the next book.

I will definitely read any follow-up to this. At first I was a bit lost, I could not follow exactly what was happening or why, neither could I see the opening skirmishes very clearly. But the sense of place and atmosphere picked up as the story progressed, becoming qite enthralling towards the end.
