Welcome to today’s edition of Book Beginnings hosted by Rose City Reader. Today I am presenting the first lines from “The Templar Legacy” by Steve Berry:
Jacque de Molay sought death, but knew salvation would never be offered. He was the twenty-second master of the Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, a religious order that had existed under God’s charge for two hundred years."
I really enjoy historical fiction and this book weaves history with a story set in the present as well. It is full of adventure and foreign locations so I kept Google handy while I read this story so I could see the locations for myself. It helps me set the scene in my mind. I am excited to read the rest of the series!
When I started reading this book, the characters seemed very familiar and then I realized that I had a read one of Mr. Berry’s books in this series already. “The Templar Legacy” is the first so I will have to re-read the other in order to continue the story.
