I really enjoyed this book. Archeological escapism and delighful adventure - what more can a reader want. If you have read "sword of the Templars", then this is not simply a follow up but, using the same characters, it sees retired Army Ranger Joh Holiday enjoying his last day in a teaching post at West Point. He is visited by the young Israeli archeologist Rafi Wanounou who brings desperate news. Holiday's only surviving relative, his beloved niece Peggy has been kidnapped by a fanatical group who revere the ancient God Isis. They are not however the only ones after Holiday and Rafi - action begins almost immediately as an attempt is made on their lives. Holiday and Rafi set out on a trail of clues and old friends from Egypt into Syria where we are introduced to a great character, "Tidyman". Enemies are on every front and the action pace is kept up throughout the book - a super read. The Templar Cross

It's good, but it's not quite up there with the likes of Mariani, Child or any number of books with a similar theme. Some glaring mistakes in the story sort of spoil it. For example a French Police Officer drives off in a Peugeot, but a few pages further on he gets out of his Citroen. The story is an OK yarn, but I find some of the scenarios odd. I know it's fiction, but this is about an Israeli academic who seems to be capable of helping a mercenary and the "hero" of the book who have full military training whilst he himself has no training at all. Could be better, but still worth a read. Just don't expect the sort of quality you would expect from a true "blockbuster".

For retired Army Ranger,Colonel John "Doc" Holliday, the trail for another Templar Relic and the obligations he was entrusted with in Sword of The Templars continues at a rapid pace in book 2 of the series without ever slowing for breath.Paul Christopher has taken the history of the Templar Knights of Europe and woven it into a very complex but enjoyable ride across the world.An excellent follow up to book 1 in the series.

Always interesting reading a new author who has created a character for a series, enjoyable read with a few twists and turns, and maybe a few historic points on the way. Replacing my Custler book for a relaxing holiday read!

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, which is Templars 2, and have gone on to read others. Am on book five now. I enjoy the good mixture of history as well as the mystery and action. I would recommend this series of books to everyone.

There are so many better books you could buy than this! I would suggest you dont waste your money or more importantly your time on this one.

It's plot is unbelievable and disjointed. It makes the Da Vinci Code (which the book refers to repeatedly) look like a masterpiece.

If you are tempted by the title as you are interested in the Templars, be warned that this has probably only been included in the title to try and sell the book as there are only passing references in the book to that subject.

Having said all that, I guess I did actually finish the book....so was it that bad?? but I was on the train and its only competition for my attention was reading the free copy of the Metro which had been left on the seat next to me.

TTC is an excellent continuation in the Holliday series. I often find that a good sequel is dependent and often a lynchpin on whether I will continue to read a series and Paul Christopher definitely delivered. The story continues to deliver and develops characters further in such a way that Christopher has you reaching for The Templar Throne almost immediately.

I've enjoyed most of Paul Christopher's stories. I don't think they would win any prizes but they move along at a fair lick. I think the title of this one however is misleading. The Templar knights have precious little to do with the story which is basically, 'girl gets kidnapped, good guys rescue her, bad guys get their just desserts'. That said it is not all that bad a story, it has incident and pace but, be warned, it will stretch your credulity, I'd classify it as 'thriller lite' if I may invent a phrase.
Good as a 'beach read', that is to say you can still ogle the pretty girls thereon (or boys, if that is your 'orientation') without losing the thread.
