Review: This latest book in the Knights Templar series is begining to take us inexorably towards the conflict between Edward II and his Queen and Mortimer. Michael Jecks in developing the characters in the midst of a 14th century minefield gives the reader the opportunity to stop and think what dilemmas must have faced individuals in that time. Like all good historical detective fiction (Lindsey Davis, David Wishart, Steven Saylor, Peter Tremayne, Susanna Gregory and John Maddox Roberts to name but six) Jecks weaves a marvellously plotted plausible story in amongst mostly historical fact using very little license. It is going to be interesting in future (I presume there will be more) books to see how Jecks manages to balance Baldwin's honourable defense of the right of his King to rule and the up and coming civil was between Isabella and Edward that ultimately leads to Edwards death. Sides will have to be taken and the consequences of picking the wrong one is going to be fatal, treading a middle path is not going to be easy. I only hope that the movement of Baldwin and Simon between the rival factions means that Jecks has found the way to keep them both out of harms way. We'll see. As usual with Michael Jecks a cracking good read that's not only left me waiting for the next installment but stimulated my curiosity enough to fill in the gaps and read around the subject to put the series in perspective. If this is the first book of this series that you've read I'd reccomend reading the other 26 to fill in the gaps.
