Synopsis

“[Guillou] has a remarkable grasp of the mind-set of the period and always puts the emphasis where it would be for the people involved at that time, rather than ours. Some readers may find that disorienting, but a capacity for disturbing readers’ assumptions is even more a hallmark of good historical fiction than the inclusion of the Knights Templar.”
— Diana Gabaldon, Washington Post

Jan Guillou follows up the highly acclaimed The Road to Jerusalem with the second book in his Knights Templar trilogy. Readers of Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden, and Stephen Saylor will find many page-turning thrills in The Templar Knight.

Excellent historical reading
April 2nd, 2014
This is the second book of the trilogy. Alternating chapters tell the saga of Arn and his beloved separated for having loved one another by a jealous sister. Arn is sentenced to twenty years in service as a Templar knight where his exceptional combat skills and secular knowledge enable him to rise in rank and service earning him friends and enemies among both Christians and Moslems. His beloved endures a different conflict being subject to a vengeful and vindictive Abess. We'll worth reading the series
