Much better than the usual fare, this has an interesting take on what happened to the Knights Templar. The stories are well-written, the characters sympathetic, and the various arcs nicely handled, there were three things that didn't work for me. Firstly, I did find it rather difficult to suspend disbelief that the Templars would return to the bosom of Mother Church after what was done to them, and none of the books really justified what the Templars had done, or how they'd survved 'underground' for all those centuries before their excommunication had been repealed. Secondly it seemed strange that they were using guns, grenades and C4 on supernatural threats, whilst eschewing any supernatural weapons or protection except the blessed swords each of them carries as a last resort (the eponymous Heretic has, and uses such powers, hence the damning soubriquet).
Thirdly is the character Duncan. I feel that Duncan is worthy of a book of his own, mostly to explain how the home-schooled faith-healing son of a Southern Baptist hellfire-and-brimstone preacher wound up going to a Catholic high school, followed by a Jesuit university, and thence into the secret army of the Roman Catholic Church. It's a bit like a son of Osama bin Laden becoming an Orthodox rabbi. Probably not impossible, but it would be one hella story.
Apart from these niggles, a very promising series, and I look forward to reading the rest.
The twist on the ancient Templars and present day is good. I was totally drawn in to the story from the 1st paragraph and
thoroughly recommend the omnibus set. The author s imagination drew me in from the begining

Very mediocre book, oven devolves into explaining trivial details at great length or more significant events in barely a sentence. Read morePublished on 21 Jan. 2014 by Ben
