    Really good read, if you like Scottish history with a slight touch of fantasy thru pray and Christian ritual . Good believable characters you can get to love.

    Interesting premise and strong original characters interact with historical figures in a very well-researched if slightly dry and plodding tale. Not so good that it didn't take a bit of effort to get through, but not so bad that I'm unwilling to try the conclusion.

    I love the author. She takes me away to a different world. I wish there were more female characters but this story really doesn't lend itself well to females. This is definitely a man's world.

    Research history regurgitation. Vision of black evil. More history. Vision of angel. Repeat. Slow. Couldn't finish. Research history regurgitation. Vision of black evil. More history. Vision of angel. Repeat. Slow. Couldn't finish.

    I have loved her Deryni series and was excited to see this (Book 1 in a series). But I found it very slow moving. Perhaps I needed to brush up on my Crusader history – and in fact I did so, to see what background facts were true. I found it slow, and didn’t finish it. It tries to blend action in Crusader times, as the Crusaders are being pushed back, with a deeper evil.

There appears to be ‘magic’ coming somewhere in the story, but I read about halfway and gave up, which I rarely do with a book.

    I thought the book was very good. Although it was a fantasy, the historical details seemed accurate to me. I even looked up some information about William Wallace because this book made me curious about the real person. I would recommend it to reader's who enjoy historical fiction.

    Seems too cliché. Too much like a Derynii book but simply with the Templers.

    The Knights Templar are always a good read. This is an alternate reality version by two great fantasy writers. Fans of the genre should love this book.
