on Nov. 11, 2012 :
As it happened, I read this book at the same time I'm reading "Les Rois Maudits", a famous French series about the Grand Master of the Templars cursing the French king Philippe as he is burned at the stake. And at the same time I'm reading McGawan's series on the Gospel that Jesus wrote himself. So lots of themes circulating together here.
This novel on the Templars had an engaging climax in the middle, when the heroes found a community of happy (realized?) people in N. Africa. I found the story was less engaging after that. Still, it filled in details about the life in the age of the Templars. Two-star.
