4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!!, 10 Nov 2008
This review is from: Requiem (Brethren Trilogy 3) (Hardcover)
What Robyn Young has always excelled at was to take a list of real historical events and then connect them in a beautifully flowing work of fiction and she has done it once again. The complex relationship between kings, popes and knights of the time was brought to life and Will Campbell's story of intrigue and betrayal was fantastically told.

While "Crusade" was my personal favourite, "Requiem" brought about a fitting and wonderful end to Will's private life, struggle for peace and his largely futile efforts on behalf of the Anime Templi.

How sad that the trilogy has come to an end. I have always loved historical fiction and this trilogy has proven why readers should start getting into it. Not only have these books thrilled me, they have also educated me about the Templars and the Crusades. More than once, I have reached out to Wikipedia to help me better appreciate the context surrounding the events in the book. I would like to think now that I can tell my friends some things about the Templars and do so with some authority :-)

I hope Ms Young continues writing her excellent books. I shall look forward to them.
