The Sword Of The Templars

The Sword Of The Templars - Paul Christopher Medieval mystery, hidden symbols and codes, so I was rather surprised at my inability to get into the plot. I tried, I really did. But even till the end, it didn't do it for me. By my standard, there was quite a bit of historical information (which I've encountered in books of similar genre), which for whatever reason, I found to be dry and boring this time around. That aside, the plot had its fair share of cat-and-mouse, but to me, I found that the protagonists were mostly mouse, and for three-quarters of the time, on the defensive -- hence, rather tedious and wearisome.

* I have a more favorable review of Book 2 of the series: 'The Templar Cross'.
