Having finished this ebook only moments ago, I thought I would take a little time and offer my first ever book review.

I am confident in having read a very high percentage of books relating to Templar, Crusades and Salah ah-Din etc. both as fact and fiction and feel that I can write with some authority albeit that of an amateur historian, though I'm sure a smart-ass or two will delight in pointing-out any error I make. I am the first to admit that I am not as elegant nor word proficient as other reviewers, for this I apologise.

Having followed a number of publishers on Twitter, I frequently found this title and author in my feed and thought I'd give this book a go. I must add that I am ashamed to write the author was then unknown to me.

When you start reading The Templar's Apprentice, it quickly becomes evident that we have an author who has grasped the knack in presenting a great story with a strong narrative. We start at a slow pace, the setting cleverly isolating the leading and supporting characters to set us on our path without barraging us with an assortment of names.

Our apprentice, setting and supporting characters continue to develop at a healthy rate, focusing on each in a manner that gives familiarity but not so much that it hampers our read. Reading from the eyes, thoughts and memories of the protagonist, we set out on a delightful journey; that is historically strong for a book of this genre.

It is plain from the start that the author has researched here, frequently presenting us with contemporary terms and names, however unlike some, does not go to great lengths to explain these. To continually explain what's and where's not only detracts from a story, I find it quite insulting.

An interesting read only if this period in history is of interest to you. Disappointing as a novel with weak or no character build, even the main characters are sadly two dimensional. With time and effort this subject could have made a terrific novel, and perhaps any follow ons may be better.

Blood and Honour is the battle cry and there is certainly a lot of both in this gripping tale. There is also sex, betrayal and politics.
We follow the fortunes of Honfroy - who certainly ends with far more fortune than might have been expected from the low level of his status at the beginning of the book.

I have no idea how accurate the history is, but for me this was an exciting read

Books are a very personal preference, but if you like historic fiction similar to Bernard Cornwell books, then you will LOVE THIS !!

The book revolves around a young Templar and is full of intrigue, battle scenes, politics, and sex. I found it impossible to put down, always wanting to read one more chapter.

Cannot understand some of the few negative reviews of this book, as the characters and action just explodes off the page !!

I found this book to be most enjoyable and interesting you names and facts about places, you can almost feel yourself there watching it all unfold before your eyes, I would recommend anyone who likes to read about the temples and Knights to read this book, I am just about to start to read the second book and I hope it's just as good perhaps better.

Once you begin reading clear your schedule because you won't want to put it down until it's finished. The characters are so engaging and believable as to become like friends. Thoroughly entertaining, superbly written and with a plot that flows like silk on a breeze without sacrificing historical accuracy.

I couldn't put this book down. The plot is gripping, the characters well developed and the author's sense of humour subtle but hilarious. I have just started the sequel and, so far, it hasn't disappointed! Keep up the good work Peter Tolladay!

I found this book gripping with plenty of toing and froing to keep the interest going. This is a complete book which is not the norm for this type of novel. I am not knocking the chronicles but it is a nice change to have a start and end in one book.
