Treasure Of The Guardian Templar, by Rob Shelsky, is a borderline fantasy/adventure story. It revolves around an ex-British Marine, one who has seen enough of war and all things to do with it. Now a loner, someone who seeks solace in sea kayaking and camping, Jerrod only wishes to be left alone. But one night, while camped along the edge of an estuary in as remote a spot as he can find, Jerrod hears noises. Some quick scouting, and he realizes a young woman is being kidnapped, taken away by boat.
Jerrod realizes that despite his instincts to keep his distance, he must do something. So he sets out to save the woman. In the process, he stumbles upon more than he bargained for. With lives at stake, tales of a treasure, and ruthless men who will stop at nothing, Jerrod is now in up to his neck!
This story apparently first appeared in the magazine, Pulp Spirit, where it received rave reviews. An adventure story along the lines of an Indiana Jones tale, Treasure Of The Guardian Templar is an exciting, well-executed story. Again, this is one of those tales you should read on a dark and stormy night, when you are all alone, with just a glass of brandy, a box of chocolates and a roaring fire to sit by. You’ll enjoy Treasure Of The Guardian Templar, by Rob Shelsky. This is a five star story.
