Book 1 of 3 in the Templar Trilogy Series. The Knights of the Black and White is nothing like Whyte's previous work. Despite having a dramatic setting like the Holy Lands during the Crusades, a mysterious secret society, a princess well-versed in the art of seduction and sword-welding men in chain mail, Whyte managed to bore me. I literally had to set the book down twice and read something else before forcing myself back to the Templar book.

Besides, the author has to try to fit into the genre that the mouth-breathing fans of Dan Brown have created (truth-bending, exposition-heavy, plot-light, y-fiction).

The knight stepped inside and the younger man followed him along the narrow, curving, dimly lit passageway that he remembered from his previous visit, until they reached a curtained doorway. Sir Stephen pulled the curtain aside and passed through into the space beyond, and Hugh followed him, knowing that what he was about to see, if he saw anything at all, would probably bear no resemblance to what he had seen on either of his two earlier visits to this place.
The Templars represent a widely popular period of history, but the roots of their fellowship have been shrouded in contemporary conspiracy theory and media glamou. .this trilogy tells the true tales of the Knights Templar; beginning with why they formed after the First Crusade and why they continued to grow in power and influence.

I found Jack Whyte's first book in his new series to be a page-turner and very well-written. If you are a fan of the Templar myth you will love this book. It is well-grounded in the history of the period, even if it does deal in a fantasy. I can suspend my knowledge of the historical Templars to enjoy a fantasy about them and he is not the first to write such a pastiche as exemplified by Katherine Kurtz's efforts. It does an amazing job of retelling these tales of old, and even though its fiction making it seem so real by fitting the characters so perfectly with what they really would be like in that time.
