5.0 out of 5 stars A truly great page-turning read, 13 Aug. 2010
This review is from: The Templar Knight: 2/3 (Crusades Trilogy 2) (Paperback)
I loved this book so much. I bought and read it via iBooks on my new iPad and am now going to try and find the first in the series. Can hardly wait for number three. It feels so true-to-life and is rightly sympathetic to the Islamic leadership of that era and truthful about the corruption in the Crusades and some of the Templars. But most of all it was a good story on a human level and I particularly loved the way Cecilia coped with her unjust incarceration. The unjust treatment of women in the name of politics was not unique to that era, to any religion or even religion itself. We think we have moved on but what is happening in Iran and elsewhere shows not. Guillou tells a gripping and sympathetic tale of human nature and shows it is us, not God or religion, that are to blame when things get nasty but also, likewise, he shows how faith can inspire acts of true courage, nobility and self-sacrifice for the greater good and in the name of love of God and man.
