This was a good book. I was interested enough to read through it fairly quickly and liked the plot. The Templar's appear in a number of books and it is always interesting to me to see how each author changes the tales and creates new endings. I liked the surprises throughout the book that kept the pace moving and introduced new characters. I did think the big mystery was a little typical though I liked that the Templar power was ascribed to something other than pure wealth.
Overall a solid read. So far this author has not disappointed and each book I read seems to be an improvement over the last. I will definitely continue reading his work.
