★★★★☆ Templar Legacy

By ArtN on Mon, 13 Apr 2015 15:23:58

This fast paced novel features a former government agent turned rare book dealer, his various allies and a group of modern Knights Templar, all seeking the lost Great Devise of the medieval order. As a Christian, I didn't care for the religious ideas advanced in this book. However, as a work of fiction, it's intriguing and a real page turner. Dan Brown fans will greatly enjoy. However, the writing quality is better than that found in a Dan Brown book.

☆☆☆☆☆ Dan Brown Readalike

Steve Berry''s novels are characterized by action-filled plots, international intrigue, and a present-day mystery linked to a historical subject. The Templar Legacy is the first to feature former U.S. Justice Department agent turned bookseller Cotton Malone, who must solve a mystery that develops when a rare book that may hold the key to the lost treasure of the Knights Templar is found. If you like Dan Brown you''ll enjoy this adventure.

★★★☆☆ The Templar legacy

By David on Fri, 09 Aug 2013 12:20:21

I found the book very mundane and, frankly, a bit confusing to read. I did manage to stick with it to the end, but, based on this book, I've crossed Steve Berry off my preferred author list. Maybe my expectations were too high based on the 5-star rating on the Library's recommended reading list.

★★★★★ awesome read!

★★★★★ Berry, S

Berry has been hailed as the next Dan Brown. His latest action/thriller is The Templar Legacy – a mystery involving the Knights Templar and the treasure – both priceless jewels as well as knowledge -- they hid after the Crusades. This will keep you turning pages to the thought-provoking end.
