Started getting into theses novels by Michael Jecks and they are quite intriquing, ionce you get to know how the writer works, originally, I thought they were labourious, but then found after I stuck with it, that they were very clever and masterful bit of writing. Using some facts of that period and especially certain methods used by all parties it became a very interesting reading. Now I look forward to the next novel to pick up and start to read, my only wish would have been to follow the flow of the characters from their early creation right through, but alas there is no listing putting them in age order of the characters. Nothing worse than reading a book, then move onto the next book only to find you have now gone back 20years or so, please can we have books that follow that order, it would make much more interesting reading.

It has been at least five years since I was first introduced to this series by Michael Jecks. I soon found myself searching to find the early titles and have all to date. Why? The historical research is quite good, excellent if you will. Jecks' ability to then weave a great story into the history is better than most. It is truly remarkable that a writer could sustain a series set in in early 14th century England / France over so many titles. It is the lives of people in different "stations" and how they interact and live out those lives within a complex historical matrix. I should note that Jecks was originally published under Headline and is more recently published by Simon & Schuster, UK. More significantly I note that early titles keep reappearing in book stores so there is a call for this author and the series.

Kudos to whoever got this (hard back version) of the book splayed across a sleeping Cabe Gallo's chest on the episode of Scorpion I just watched. What a kick-ass advertising ploy! I had never heard of this series before. I shall give the series a go when the 'to read' pile diminishes a bit (I can see you have to invest plenty of time in it).

Bought this book for my wife, who really enjoys Michael Jecks' Knights Templar books - and this was no different, as she had her nose stuck into the pages and the plot for days on end!

Michael Jecks is a great author, who authentically and captivatingly captures the period about which he writes. What more can one say or ask of an author?!

As with all Michael Jecks's works this was a good read. He may have to either fit some new stories into Baldwin't early years or create a new protagonist. At 54 BLadwin is getting a little long in the tooth for the Merry Olde England of that day. Myae Baql;dwin needs a nephew or some such to take under ins wing and groom....

Anyway great read as always - love his work and the research behind the works

Another thoroughly enjoyable read from Michael Jecks. I can't wait for the next instalment in the tale of Sir Baldwin and Simon Puttock.

I really enjoyed this book by Michael Jecks, one of his best I would say and I've read most of them. I enjoy the historical detail particularly around Gloucester and the part played by the Berkeley family in detaining King Edward II.

I really enjoy this series and have read every one of the Knights Templar books to date and eagerly await the next one. As with all the books in the series I was impressed by its historical accuracy and its vivid descriptions and attention to detail. The plot was largely predetermined by the events surrounding King Edward II in his final days after he was captured by supporters of his estranged wife Queen Isabella and her lover Roger Mortimer. Although I am really interested in history I think accurate historical novels can be far more interesting to read than history text books and Michael Jecks seems to bring the past to life. There was also a sub plot with fictional characters so there were twists that cannot be found in text books. However, there were no anachronisms and it remained authenic. It was an excellent book to read and a worthy addition to the series.
