Despite a few not good reviews, I tried this book - I wouldn't mind if it was escapist.

I started my reading enjoying it. But after many chapters I started to realize that the author was throwing together different themes to try and make the book appealing. He mixes the story of the disappearance of Colonel Fawcett in the Amazon with a Templar treasure, with the Papacy, with Indians fighting for the environment in the Amazon region, with wicked big corporations, with the Ark of the Covenant and with Jesus Christ.

There is not really a plot. Assassins belonging to different organizations are thrown in left and right, characters keep moving around alll over the world, and frequent references are made to happenings in previous books of the same series.

I usually hesitate in disparaging too strongly a book, out of consideration for its author. But in this case I say frankly that I will throw it in the bin (I wouldn't like to give it to anyone). I haven't given it zero stars only because this is not possible.

By J. Chippindale TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 21 April 2014
Format: Paperback
I too, like many of the other reviewers have read all of the books in this series which began in 2009 with The Sword of the Templars, (Book 1) and there is no doubt about it they are written as pure escapism. The sort of book that takes very little thought or concentration from the reader but no less enjoyable because of that. They are perfect for reading on holiday, or while waiting at an airport or on a train journey, situations where the surrounding distractions would make reading a more serious book difficult, or at least less enjoyable. There are times when an hour or two immersed in an improbable and far-fetched adventure is just what the doctor ordered.

I do however agree with other reviewers that the books are not long enough and are not good value for money. They are certainly longer than a short story but nowhere near the length of the average novel. In fact my copy of this book was even printed in larger type than normal. A ploy to make the reader think the book was actually longer than it really was? Possibly.

The book is enjoyable without being up there with the best novels of this type (and there are plenty of those). The main character, retired Army Ranger, John Holliday is depicted as what could probably best be described as a modern day Indiana Jones. Flying to all points of the globe, solving mysteries and righting the wrongs perpetrated by the Knights Templar and their living descendants. Also in these books the Templar Knights are certainly shown in a different light to how history normally portrays these men, synonymous with the Crusades and the fight for the Holy Land.

Light reading and enjoyable, but a very strange ending.

I've been waiting for the publication of this book for well over a year.Was it worth it you may ask?
My answer has to be a resounding yes!
This book was bought as a gift for my birthday on the 24th of January.I started to read it that vey night and finished it on the 26th, less than 2 days later having not been able to put it down.Now I can't wait for book number 9 and hope it won't be another year before we see it on the shelves, although unusually, there isn't a working title or any teaser at the end of book 8 as there has always been throughout the rest of the series.Don't want to rush you Mr Christopher but please finish the next book asap, the suspense is killing me!

Super read and would recommend to anyone who likes mystery and excitement with the finding of relics. Have read the other Holliday stories and oh my goodness what a SHOCK at the end of this book. I checked twice to check I hadn't missed anything. I do hate it when you are left like this. I hope it won't be long before next book. Though still can't believe what just happened. If you have read the other books and know the characters you will understand.

Why do I keep buying these????, every time I finish one of the Templar novels I say to myself that I will not be buying the next as they are far too short for the cost and that in my mind is not good value for money, they drag you into the plot and there are twists and turns on almost every page, I only received this last night and once dinner was out of the way, it was time to take the next journey with Doc and Eddie et al, once again it moves along at a nice pace and as already mentioned there are quite a few twists and turns in the book, Is it as good as the previous books, NO, will I get the next one, probably, I say No now ,but I know because how where this plot has finished in this book, I will have to get the next instalment to find out how this pans out.
This series really is frustrating, but it for me drags you in to the plot and then with the unexpected end of the book left you high & dry.

This book fails to disappoint! Best to start at the beginning of the series. My only problem? They seem to get shorter with each new one! Probably because the continuing tale makes compulsive reading and it is hard to put the book down.

Too many names at start of book. Too many characters. I could imagine this story jumping about from one location to another - with not enough in between to make sense of.
I only read aprox one chapter and realised it was not for me.
Will not recommend this book to others.
