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.
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.
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!
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.
I only read aprox one chapter and realised it was not for me.
Will not recommend this book to others.

Not a bad read but with this type of genre you have to take it with a pinch of salt. This is one of a series of books about the Knights Templar.Published 6 months ago by Catalan Waves
Good book in itself, better as a saga. Some parts seemed slow and others were rushed. Not a bed read.Published 7 months ago by stuart gill
